Nick’s family is a very special one to me. So when they put in a special request for me to head up to Big Bear to shoot their snow loving dude for his senior portraits, I jumped on it. Nick spends a lot of time on that mountain and winter sports are a big part of who he is, so I was stoked to capture that for them.
I met Nick and his dad at the bottom of the hill just as the sun rose one Saturday morning a few weeks back. We hunted slivers of sunlight between pockets of snow in the crevices of the mountainside. We fought icy wind and frozen fingers. We saved a dog. We threw snowballs under the sun by the lake. We laughed the whole way.
The whole time I kept thinking a, how much I love what I do, b, how much I love this family, and c, how I really need to keep gloves in my camera bag at.all.times.
