MOST RECENT

He doesnt always know me these days but I remember him. I remember the smell of fresh brewed coffee in the morning. Or how we'd drive from house to house for every holiday and never think twice. And that Sunday afternoons were made to visit them. Having my grands so close growing up was a huge blessing. It's hard to see them decline so I hold every one of those memories even closer.

This is my papa Don.

We had 4 days planned for Yosemite during our Cali adventure but because of the fires we scrambled and rearranged and refigured and it ended up being an epic trip. But as we traveled back to Tahoe on one of the last days, we passed Rt. 120 (Tioga Pass) and it was finally open. We just couldn't pass up the chance to at least say we were in Yosemite...so we drove up until the smoke got to be too bad and turned back. We happened at just the perfect time for sunset and I made Mark pull over for it:) #kloeppingphotography #yosemite #tiogapass #tuloumnemeadows #mtdana #sunset #nature #optoutside #rei #californiaadventure #california

#tbt to this little nugget who is pushing 2 now! She was such a fun baby to photograph. Sleepy and sweet and let me pose her just about every way we wanted.

As you walk through the jellies exhibit it's hard not to be draw into each tank. These moon jellies were especially interesting to Noah because he'd actually touched a few when we were in Baltimore. He was excited to recall what he'd learned about them on the opposite coast:) #kloeppingphotography #montereybayaquarium #jelliesofinstagram #moonjelly #worldofwonder #wonderfulchild #runwildmychild #childhoodwhimsy

Exploring the tide pools at sunset was always a favorite past time for me and my husband. Showing our kids the wonders of the tidepools was so much fun!

My son came up to me while we were hanging out at camp and was like "mom, can I borrow your camera? I want to take a picture of the sunset". Given that it was getting late I told him we'd go together. I put the camera up on the tripod and told him to compose the image. We then played with the settings to get a decent exposure. I did some editing for him today and voila - his picture:) I love that it was his idea, his eye, his capture. I only helped a smidge (focus!). He's got the photo bug too!

LIke I said - the light was so incredible over the arena. We were down at the boards most of the evening right up close on the action. It's super fast paced and exciting as those ponies go flying past! @morvenpark Polo in the Park is definitely worth the trip out. We'll be back next year for sure!

We took the kids out to Polo in the Park this past Saturday. What a fun night! @morvenpark started the program a few years back and it's quite the draw! Bring a picnic, a blanket and a drink and plop a spot on the grassy hillside next to the area. The kids (and the husband) had a blast! I, of course, enjoyed the beautiful light as the sun set over the arena!

The shoulders of the day are some of the best for light. I posted the other day about yummy morning light but a majority of my photos are actually during evening light. Golden hour is that last hour or so before sunset where the sun is low and warm and casting the most beautiful shadows.

This one was down at the creek by our campsite. The kids were playing in the water and I turned around to look downstream and saw this.

Morning light is some of my favorite! This was on the Rainbow walk in Lake Tahoe. While Mark was waiting to get us a backpack permit we decided to walk the interpretive nature trail around the visitors center. It was so beautiful (and incredibly informative!) #kloeppingphotography #nature #sunrise #laketahoe #tahoenationalforest #californiaadventure #naturelovers #landscape #sunrays #optoutside

Ahhhhh! They won't stop growing! 1st and 3rd today...first day of school was no big deal. The smiles, the hugged and then boarded the bus. I can't handle having big kids! Haha.

This little stinker turned 3 just recently:) I remember her newborn photos! It's been so much fun to watch her blossom and grow.
Pro tip: fart noises make everyone laugh every time:) Especially silly little kids!

I had the honor to photograph one of my favorite families! We were talking and realized that it's been almost 7 years of photos for them! I love watching their kids grow and change! Plus, they're totally old hats at this photo thing. Sessions are so easy!
