Family Photos in the snow ... La Clusaz, Haute Savoie

Adventure photo sessions are some of my favorite photo sessions to photograph. I love when families request photos that are exactly the way I photograph. Photos that are journalistic, in the moment, candid, and convey fun. YES! Photography sessions should be fun. I am all for keeping them natural, and authentic, photos that are not forced, stiff, but free spirited, and genuine. My adventure sessions allow you and the ones you love to be engaged in the moment, explore, and really appreciate where we are photographing.

Coming from California I was used to photographing in the sun. Great weather 85% of the time. Moving to Annecy I had the opportunity to photograph in all weather and I must say, yes the sun is great but lets talk about photographing in the snow. A bit cold for your camera but with proper planning, and certain tips, your camera does just fine. Snowy portraits allow all family members to have fun, I swear the child comes out in every adult. Smiles are real, even I can't help but smile from behind my camera.

When I had the request to photograph in La Clusaz, I absolutely said yes. I love traveling for photos and did this a lot in San Francisco. So if you are a family or couple coming to the Alps do not think Annecy is too far away, I embrace the quote: The Mountains are calling so I must Go. All locations are welcome.

For this photo session in La Clusaz, more specifically Les Confins, we had a 30 minute pause in weather and were able to get some incredible photos in the snow. Towards the end we even had the luck to get completely snowed on. Snowflakes the size of quarters were falling, and our laughter kept
us all warm.

Truly, it's Adventure Photo session like these that make me appreciate being a photographer and especially a photographer in this region. This was photo session was extra special as we were celebrating the holidays.

I am looking forward to 2020 as I have new destinations on my map of places to photograph. If you are a family, couple, or a local living or visiting Annecy, the Alps .... it would be my pleasure to create an adventure photo session for you and your family.

If you and the ones you love fall into these categories then I would be ever lucky to photograph you. Your style fits my style:
Ready for an Adventure
Vacationing and want a souvenir that lasts
March to the beat of your own drum
Love the Outdoors
Excited to experience a moment with the people you love
Want photos that are unlike others

Then I am your photographer ... ready, set, SNAP!

Continually booking and photographing portrait sessions. 
Live by the motto:  
Go out and Explore ...
remember you are not sugar and you won't melt, 
lets adventure!
