Every year, my family takes an annual family trip to Lake Tahoe. About 5 years ago, my partner Nolan joined my family and I on our vacation. Being the rock climber that he is, he wanted to explore all that Tahoe had to offer. Because my family had plans, Nolan was on his own to find the right spots and to find a climbing partner. He went on Instagram and met Colby! They became friends and kept in contact and climbed together a few times over the years.
Fast forward a couple of years, Nolan and I decided to take a road trip to the Sierra Mountains, and Colby and his girlfriend graciously let us crash with them in Reno. After spending a few days with them, I knew we had to schedule a photo shoot with them and their cute pup Toby. After a day of climbing we went out and scouted some locations and then the next day we went shooting! The Sierra Mountains are so beautiful, it was a dream to shoot here!
