Rock Climbing Is Fun for the Whole Family | Las Vegas Adventure Photography

Contrary to popular belief, rock climbing is totally safe and not at all scary (if you aren’t afraid of heights). Even if you are afraid of heights, it’s a great way to work up a heavy dose of adrenaline and face your fears with all your whimpering pansy courage. No seriously, it’s a fun hang with friends (literally), a great way to spend the day outdoors, oh and it’s dog friendly! So pack some snacks, call your friends, enjoy the good vibes and capture the moments with Las Vegas adventure photography today!

Petrina Olson | Las Vegas Portrait Photography

Petrina’s background in dance and performance makes her a natural in front of the camera. It also makes her a powerful asset when working with our clients because she helps them feel comfortable and knows how to pose them for the camera. Our photos may look great, but her beyond-the-scenes work as art director during shoots ensure that our clients look and feel great too.

Otherworldly | Las Vegas Fine Art Photographer

Imagine, if you will, just how far this piece has traveled to reach you. Light from the sun, traveling at the speed of light, took eight minutes to travel from a burning ball of gas, into this unassuming cave on one of its planets. It then bounced off the walls, onto the subject, towards the camera, through the lens and onto a digital sensor which converted that light energy into a electric pulses to and registered the information onto a digital memory cartridge. This cartridge was placed into a card reader where the magnetic energy stored on the card was converted back to electric impulses traveling through billions of binary switches and into a computer screen where the original light of the sun was converted back into light so that your eyes could capture the light, just like the camera lens did. This light once again passes through a lens in your eyeball, lands on receptors and gets transmitted into usable information for your brain to enjoy and respond with, “Oh, that’s pretty.”

A process even more complicated than that is involved in the process of printing this image onto paper. For only $9,999, our Las Vegas fine art photographer will explain that process and present you with a permanent reproduction of the image you see here.

Birth of Beauty by Petrina | Las Vegas Birth Photography

Real stories of birth and the life that follows.
I am awe-struck by the beauty and intense power that is unique to women in their ability to grow life and bring it forth.
I am humbled  to witness the moment a family sees their new baby for the first time. To see them take their first breaths, cry their first cry, and settle  sweetly on their mother's chest. You can never get those moments back, a once in a lifetime event with no opportunity for retakes.
The journey into parenthood is incredibly profound, whether for the first time, or the fifth. Every birth story is so beautiful and unique. I approach birth photography as authentically as possible, embracing the primal nature of the mother and every aspect of the process. Of course I love to capture the elation of a mother holding her child for the first time, but it's the other moments that pull me in the most. The tender, quiet connection  of mother and father. The exhaustion. The tension of transition. The emotional vulnerability of the moment she says she can't do this... and the intimidating and awe-inspiring power of a woman when she does. Birth is more than just joyful—it's inexplicably hard and messy, and it's  all of worthy of remembering. You should birth on your own terms, and I will document that as honestly as possible.
I am deeply honored and grateful to my dear friend pictured here, who  trusted me to to be present to capture her beautiful birth story. 
I would be honored to do so for you as well.  Please contact me for inquiries petrinaolson@gmail.com

Abstract is Back! | Las Vegas Fine Art Photography
