Location Guide FOR
Your online guide to my
favorite locations around Las Vegas!
I can't wait to help you plan out every detail of your session! Selecting the right location plays a big part in creating an enjoyable experience.
I have created this location guide sharing all my favorite spots around Las Vegas, the general distance, what the costs are associated with each location, and what you can expect when you get there. Please keep in mind that this location guide is specific to mini sessions only as travel distance is limited for mini session bookings. Some locations you may have seen in my regular location guide are not included.
Have a look and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
95 North & Durango
Floyd Lamb Park - GREEN AREA
This is another great location option for families with small children who like to roam. There is plenty of room to explore safely. This is specific to the green area, but can be paired with the Desert Area of Floyd Lamb if requested. This location also has great seasonal color changes. Please be sure to specify which area of the park you are most interested in shooting in so we can plan accordingly.
Note: The weekends are generally very busy at this park. So expect a lot of people.
A beautiful, easy to access location with desert brush, walking paths, and gorgeous light. There is a lot of variation here.
It can get a lot of bugs late spring through early fall due to being close to water.
There is a $45 permit fee associated with this location.
Near Red Rock
Calico Basin - KRAFT MOUNTAIN PARKING
If you are looking for red rocks and don't want to make the drive to Valley of Fire, this is a great second option. This location does require a small but rocky, uphill trail hike that might not be ideal for really small ones. Parking on weekends will be a little harder as it gets really busy.
Durango and 95 N area
Tule Springs FossiL Beds
An extremely unique location with neutral desert palette, amazing fossil beds, open desert landscapes and gorgeous light. A wonderful place for the family that loves to embrace the beauty of the desert. This place is very sandy and rocky. Comfortable shoes are a must! Not stroller accessible.
Near Red Rock
Bonnie springs Road
A very scenic desert landscape with a mix of Desert Landscape and a small, more lush area with trees. A top favorite with Red Rock views. However, this is not recommended on weekends as there is limited parking and it's a popular spot for sessions.
15 miles North West of Vegas
Desert National Wildlife refuge
One of my top favorite locations to shoot at. This is a bird refuge just outside of Las Vegas. It has a mix of green lush foliage and desert. It's an excellent location for families with small children who need to run and roam. This location has very seasonal color changes and the most gorgeous light!
Note: Permission must be granted by rangers for this location.
9 miles south east of henderson
Dry lake Bed
A gorgeous wide open landscape which can be paired with any color palette for wardrobe. Perfect for little ones who want to run and play. Only available to book with a mini session (30 minutes) due to lighting or can be combined with the Nelson Location for a Full Session.
Ann & Durango
The Gathering Place
This is a rentable natural light photography studio. A great option to get out of the heat in summers or just for a more timeless and simple portrait session.
Rental rates are $75/hr Mon-Thur & $100/hr Fri-Sun. Availability not always guaranteed as it is a shared space.
