Valley of Fire family portrait – Clark County, NV


Valley of Fire family portrait photography


This Valley of Fire family portrait is one of my favorites! While we were in Las Vegas for our annual photography convention, we took a trip over the the Valley of Fire for a quick family portrait for the Wright family. This beautiful state park is a few miles off of the 15 freeway. When you see fireworks signs and an Indian casino by the road, you are in the right place! You’ll drive quite a ways on a tiny 2 lane road that goes right to the park. The entry fee is only $10. This was our first time coming here so we met the family at the visitor center and then explored around the area for photo locations. There are amazing spots pretty much everywhere you look! After a few photos, we hopped back into the truck and drove around for some more.

The photo with the family walking in the middle of the road was my favorite! The canyon colors and the winding mountain road made such a great background. This portrait session was done in February so the weather was just right. Since this is in the desert, I wouldn’t advise doing it in the summer! If you are ever on a road trip through Nevada, make some time for a Valley of Fire family portrait!
