Welcome TO

It’s pretty cold this time of year here in Idaho…so this family’s was smart to bundle up and use lots of layers to stay nice and warm. Since I typically shoot just before sunset, the temperatures tend to drop significantly then. Which can cause younger kiddos to complain and lose interest in the session quick. […]

It’s probably the most beautiful seasons here in the Treasure Valley! Every tree is full of vivid color and it offers a perfect backdrop for a family photo session. The most popular location during this time of year in my opinion is definitely the Kathryn Albertson’s Park in Boise, Id. Not only does it offer […]

Not every session needs to be outdoors or done in a professional studio to be great! But there are some things to consider if you do decide to use your home. While every outdoor location isn’t treated equally {especially when it comes to lighting, space and beauty}….not every indoor location like your home is either. […]

I think every small business, entrepreneur selling in the online space or influencer needs Personal Branding Photography (that includes me)! It’s definitely an investment because these sessions typically run more than a traditional headshot shoot. Because the images you’re using help to sell your products and services you are issued a commercial license to use […]

In all the years I’ve personally used a Professional Photographer, not one has really taken the time to get to know about me or my family before photographing all of us. I also admit this wasn’t my practice when I first started out either. But it dawned on me…how am I going to truly connect […]

I would like to start off by saying Candid Photography is not for everyone! So if your preference is to stand still and smile pretty at the camera…then a candid approach may not be for you. To be candid (yes pun intended!) it takes the right type of client to be comfortable enough in front […]

So  it’s more important than ever to know what to expect for your Senior Session with your Photographer! It’s not just about the outfit selection or hair and makeup! There’s a few other factors to consider…so read on! Location: […]

I always love the start of a new year! With it brings another 365 days to do some pretty amazing things with your life! For some it’s all about purging; letting go, clearing out, getting rid of things and people that no longer serve them. For others it’s chasing their goals, dreams and taking hold […]

Every so often I hold Model Calls at less busy times of the year. In part for various projects I may be working on and sometimes, just to update my Portfolio with a different Photography style or family look. Earlier this year I was collaborating with a Videographer for a personal project and needed a […]

My best advice to parents who book 1 Year Old Sessions with me is to come with the expectation to have no expectations! With 1 year olds, they’re like pets…unpredictable and uncooperative. But don’t get scared off from doing them. This milestone is one of the best memories to have captured! What really helps prepare […]
