Bass Lake holds an extra special place in my heart. I had some family live up the mountain when I was younger, and I have a lot of good memories hanging out on the lake. From going airborne in an inner tube to jumping off rocks I definitely should have avoided, it has always inspired a sense of adventure.
It’s only about an hour away from Fresno, CA, and is located super close to Yosemite. It’s just off the 41 Highway that leads you right to Yosemite National Park, which is definitely an option for all types of sessions. Bass Lake also has some incredible views, and gives off adventurous mountain vibes. You’ll especially see what I mean at the end of this blog post.
I showed Jessica and Corey how to use my camera so they could take portraits of each other at the end of the session. I always love to see how these ones turn out!
If you’re down for a little bit of travel, mountain sessions are my favorite in the winter months. The Central Valley can get a bit dry, with lots of dead trees. The mountains look gorgeous in every season.
