Leaving Tahoe… | McGowan Images Blog


Leaving Tahoe…

Before dawn this morning, the McGs and our friends the Bergs left Tahoe. We brought home with us HILARIOUS stories and new jokes… but most importantly, a TON of pictures. Mostly of Kevin & Nicole, because let’s be honest, that’s why we were there. 😉

We’ve got a personal blog post coming on Wednesday with some gorgeous scenery and adventures, and then on Friday, we’ll dazzle your eyeballs with all our favorite images from the Bergs romantic portraits. But today? Today’s Monday, and Mondays are for sneak peeks.


I don’t normally post boudoir work here, but come on… it’s going to be a little bit before I can post this incredible boudoir session on the Girls on Film blog, and it’s worth showing. It’s tame enough that I don’t feel at all bad about it, and hot enough to melt your monitors. Everybody wins!!

I was taking a little bit of heat for putting Nicole out in the snow and on the beach in 25 degree weather with heavy winds, so I decided to man up and climb the rocks myself. Mack nailed this shot and I love it. 🙂

Yesterday was a strict “no work” day, and we exhausted ourselves playing in the snow. Yay for sled hills!

Oh,  I almost forgot this shot. Gotta close with the stunner…

EEEEK! So gorgeous, right? Our friends are awesome, and we’re honored that they trust us enough to invest in photographic adventures like this. I’m so proud of the whole collection, and I can’t wait to show them all off. But before then, I can’t wait to get home and hug my babies. It’s time to be HOME for a little while. 🙂

    Gorgeous! The sledding reminds me of childhood when we went sledding down the hills on our farm. 🙂

    I’m freaking blown away. The shots on the rocks with the glassy water don’t even look real, they’re so amazing. And the boudor shots? Have mercy!

    Um, WHAT?! Holy guac. These are STUNNING!? Meg is so right. They almost don’t look real, but they are. Totally a compliment. #4 & the last shot. How?!? Ugh. So gorgeous. Nicole & Kev – y’all are just too beautiful for words. I’m so glad the McG+Berg friendship exists. Eye candy. 🙂 I’m ready for more. Stat.

    UGGHHH these are so gorgeous. That first pic might actually make me think snow is cute, but then I remember NE winters and am glad its just a pic. The pic of Nicole is so stunning!
