I’m so excited to share this sweet modern and feminine nursery and the sweetest little babe who calls it home. Baby O‘s room is full of something old, something new, something borrowed, and a few things blush. I love all the details Hannah used to create a nursery that reflects her childhood, the bond of family, and her and Joe’s …

It’s always fun meeting new clients and this family was a great bunch to hang out with for an afternoon. Nanci is a dear childhood friend of my mother-in-law’s and has followed my work for years. I was excited when she contacted me as her family would be home for holidays. Nanci’s daughter, Chelsea, and family live in California, so …

I do realize it’s already the 5th of January and many people have popped the New Year’s Eve champagne cork, taken down the Christmas tree and are tackling those new year’s resolutions already. Me. Not so much; at least not yet. At first I thought I was behind, but then a dear friend reminded me we are just on the …

I’ve enjoyed photographing this family for a few years now, watching them welcome their first son, then their second. They both own small businesses, and I was thrilled when they first contacted me to schedule a newborn session. They had never had a family session and it worked out perfectly to schedule one for the end of fall. Enjoy the …

Aww, such a sweet family. It’s always fun getting them in front of my camera, capturing the girls’ personalities and the love they have for each other. As a Nampa, Idaho, family photographer, I find out what kind of session my clients want during our initial consultation. We spend time visiting about what the family (usually mom) wants out of …

Oh I love this family! I’ve known Deanna for years and have enjoyed watching her family grow and change. This was the first time we’d done a lifestyle photography session at their home since they welcomed their second son. I loved being able to capture the boys in their element, building with Legos, wrestling with Dad, and playing with a …

We spent another fun, family weekend on the road at a junior livestock show. It’s a lot of work, but so worth it to see the kids compete, hang out with friends, and have fun. E showed her heifer and two sheep this weekend. She had some tough competition and did a good job. Each time she goes into the …

I loved having this family in my studio for this 6 month old girl’s Essence session. She’s grown and changed so much since her newborn session. These Essence Sessions are a simple and quick way to capture personality and milestones of babies and children. It was fun getting mom and dad in the photos too. You can tell they adore their …

Every baby is a miracle, and this newborn baby boy is no exception. He has captured the hearts of his family from Day 1. I was excited to photograph his lifestyle newborn session at home with his parents and adorable older brother, who I also had the pleasure of photographing. It’s especially rewarding working with repeat clients because I get to …

Leaving the Interstate, the exit sign read Paradise Valley. And as I reached the ranch where I was photographing, there was no denying that was an accurate description of the place where my clients live and work. Not being an Idaho native, I am still struck by the beauty of this state I now call home. Even after living here 13 …

One of the activities we enjoy as a family is showing cattle. Our kids are starting to get more involved in junior breed associations and 4-H events so several weekends from May through August are usually spent at a livestock show. It’s a lot of hard work, not only the day of, but also at home in preparation. However, it’s …

Last weekend we loaded up our family and headed down to Reno, Nev., to attend the Western National Angus Futurity. Our oldest daughter would be showing Angus cattle there for the first time and our ranch also had several animals to exhibit. We raise registered seedstock cattle and show them at fairs and national shows to advertise the genetics we …

Happy 6th Birthday to our little man! He decided he wanted a football birthday as we were having his party on the day of the Superbowl, so it worked out perfectly. He also had a football birthday when he turned three, so I had a few things around I could still use. He asked for Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes, which his …

It’s quite fun to have repeat clients who come back each year or with each milestone in their lives because then I get to see how the kids have grown and changed. Seeing this family again always makes me smile. We met a park near their home where they enjoy spending time as a family. Mom always does a great …

Whether it’s your first or your fifth, there is not much more special in life than welcoming a new baby to the family. One of the services I provide is a lifestyle First 24 photo session at the hospital. I capture the details of the new baby, your first family photo and the excitement of the day.

We love the county fair…sure it’s hot, and dirty, and the days are long, but there truly is something so special about the memories we make as a family and with friends as the culmination of a whole year of preparation for the kids comes to a close. I grew up with many wonderful memories showing horses and cattle in …

  I just loved this fall family session! I was thrilled when Eleanor called and said how much she loved my photography and wanted to schedule a fall family session. (Yes, still catching up some sessions.) We had such a fun time hanging out at the lake near their home. Little Mr. E was such a delight and those big …
