Zelda and her Parents

Zelda and her parents, Stacey and Drew, are north-enders who love downtown Boise and its vibrant local arts scene. That’s why we chose Boise’s colorful public art venue, Freak Alley, for their family photo shoot. Zelda even let her mom and dad in some of the shots. I love the bold colors, textured backgrounds and candid shots.

 

The Walkers

Take two loving and fun parents, add two enthusiastic kiddos and some dappled early evening light in Boise’s Barber Park, and you end up with some great shots. I really enjoyed seeing their animated personalities shine.

 

The Denker Family

The Denkers were one of my first family photo shoots. They’d never had family photos taken before but you’d never know it! They were so relaxed in front of the camera. Combined with the beautiful fall day at Barber Park, their pictures turned out beautifully.

 

Glo, Tad, Olivia & Emmy

The holidays are such a festive time for family photo shoots. Glo and her photogenic family needed some shots for their Christmas card, so we headed to a tree farm near their Meridian home. We even managed to get a cameo from their furry family member, Carl. I love how the bright colors of their outfits pop in contrast with the light of this early winter day.

 

Harmony, Aaron, and Baby Edward

These cuties were willing to brave some low December temps to get their first pics as a family. We shot these photos in and around the Grove in downtown Boise. Three-month-old Edward was definitely feeling the holiday spirit!

 

My Family

My love of photography was reignited after the birth of my daughter, Remy. An active toddler who’s often hard to catch, she makes for a fun and often challenging subject. And yes, those blue eyes are real! I even manage to catch Dad in a few pictures once in a while!
