Kelly + Dave's Big Bear Adventure

Updated: 3 days ago



Kelly & Dave live my dream life ... or should I say one of my dream lives ... I have a few!!

One is living on a farm with a horse, or maybe 2 horses, who's counting?

The other is being a full time traveler and living in an airstream, a camper van, whatever allows us to travel full time and still have a little home ... I could go on, but I won't bore you.

Let me know in the comments below what your dream life is, but for now, let's get back to Kelly & Dave and their love story.


Kelly & Dave are full time travelers who built their own van and travel all over the United States and Europe as well. We took these photos in Big Bear, a beautiful small city in Southern California sitting on the banks of Big Bear Lake, that I adore, as they were passing by it during their California adventure. Big Bear is famous for it's ski resort, but I love it during all the seasons, the views are beautiful, the little cabins are adorable and the hiking is great.

For this session, we didn't do much strenuous hiking, because I was 7 months pregnant and Dave and Kelly were extra sweet and wanted to make sure I didn't take any chances, but as you can see from the photos, you don't have to always hike 10 miles uphill to get pretty views.

And yes I aways recommend at least two looks for pictures if the session allows it. It doesn't have to be two completely different outfits, it can be as easy as adding an extra layer to outfit number one, a sweater, a different hat, and voila, you have two outfits, two looks, and basically two different sets of moods in one session. It adds variety to your final gallery and if you are using the photos for decorating different rooms, it gives you a bit more choice.
