Sunset at Bear Lake

With all the summer fires out west, we had quite the unique haze for our beach photos at sunset.  Bear Lake is surrounded by mountains, but with the smoke hiding them from site, it more felt like the ocean.  Compositionally I love the haze as the background is muted and the families are even more shown as the main focus.  These are simple and clean.

Although the air made my allergies flare up for a week and I had some wicked headaches, it sure gave a beautiful mood to these photos.  We all just didn’t want to leave.

 

So with fall just around the corner, and the cooler temps that come to Bear Lake,  if you want beachy photos like this, you better book quick before the water gets too cold.

Bear Lake Beach family photography

This is the second year in a row that we’ve had a full lake.  Which means we have fewer sandy beaches than what we were used to, but I’m happy to show that there are still beautiful beaches at Bear Lake, and this is my favorite for family photos.  I love meeting families in the morning when the beach is still quiet and the day hasn’t gotten hot yet.

A Conestoga Ranch family session

Bear Lake has a charming glamping resort called Conestoga Ranch, and it’s a perfect spot for family photos.  I was excited to meet this family staying there and explore around.  We walked with the wild flowers, rode bikes, cooked smores, and explored their huge tent.  Thanks so much for sharing your vacation with me.

Sam + Alisa Salt Lake City Wedding

What a fun journey we have been on.  I first met these two in knee deep snow for their engagement photos.  We hiked in through snow covered pines and laughed till our cheeks were frozen.  How fun to end with their wedding full of flowers on a breezy sunny morning.   It was a joyful day surrounded by so many loving friends and family.  It couldn’t have been more perfect.

Then the next evening they had an open house at Bear Lake.

The Bear Lake Farmhouse

I’m excited to show off the project we’ve been working on this past year.

If you are planning a family reunion and need an economical place to stay, come check out The Bear Lake Farm House.  Built for multi families on vacation.

Home has 5 bedrooms, each with a king bed and twin bunk bed.  Home sleeps about 24 people or more, depending on how many kids want to squeeze into a king bed.  Need more space? book together the red barn next door to double your space.  4 bathrooms and 1 half bath.

Our kitchen is well stocked with two ovens, an extra large copper sink, huge fridge and freezer, dishwasher, kid bar with plenty of seating, storage cabinet for all your gear and food to be hidden away, drinking fountain, and the house is wired to play music straight from your device.  A patio swing and picnic table let you enjoy lunch in the shade.

In walking distance is the Heritage Park and fishing pond.  Enjoy a stroll through the quiet neighborhood away from busy traffic.

We’ve hired local artist talent, like Kirk Topham to build our indoor tree house.  And original oil paintings by Lauriann Wakefield are featured around the house.

At night, relax in the deluxe hot tub or roast smores in the silo fire pit.
