Stephanie and Zackery | Boise Engagment Photography

There are so many things that I love about this engagement session! First, and most important, is that this sweet bride-to-be is my youngest sister, Stephanie! I am so very excited for her as the embarks on this journey with Zackery. They are such a great couple and I’m looking forward to welcoming Zackery *officially* into the craziness that is our big, loud, and loving family.

Secondly… I mean, take a look at the photos! Stephanie approached me about a vintage 50’s picnic photo shoot, and I was SO onboard:)

We went out to Barber Park and set up in a forested area off of the walking path. Steph bought and borrowed several vintage pieces, and I love the way it all came together.

Stephanie and Zackery both share a love of reading and creative writing, so incorporating books into this session was perfect.

Elliot’s Cake Smash | Boise Children’s Photography

One of the things about being a photographer AND a mom is that there are certain milestones that I really look forward to… because I get to take the pictures! Elliot’s first birthday definitely fits into this category. I had been looking forward to this session for months! And my sweet little guy certainly didn’t disappoint.

For Elliot’s cake, I made an Icebox Cake, which is basically just whipped cream and chocolate cookies. Once you let it sit overnight, the cookies get really soft and the cake is perfect for a baby, er toddler, to smash (… and get EVERYWHERE!! You’ll see what I mean…).

Elliot was really tentative about the cake at first. He didn’t really know what to do with it.

“Hey, uh mom? Can I be done now?”

While trying to escape from the cake smash set-up, he accidentally stuck his foot in it. Oops! But so cute!

There were a few tears at that point.

Eventually (about 20 minutes or so) he discovered that the it actually tasted pretty good!

And then he started making that big ol’ mess I was hoping for!

This is probably my favorite picture of the bunch! Doesn’t he look so pleased! Good job buddy guy :)

If you couldn’t tell, I LOVE doing first birthday cake smash sessions. So if you have a little one with an upcoming birthday, just send me a message and we’ll work something out!

Springtime with the Frendts | Boise Family Photography

Spring has finally sprung! I don’t know about you guys, but I was particularly stir-crazy this winter. I usually enjoy the cold weather, but this year I just really wanted some warm sunshine. And it’s finally coming! What better way to celebrate spring than to photograph a sweet family out in a blossoming cherry orchard :)  For this session we drove out to Emmett and stopped and got permission from a very sweet couple so that we could take a few pictures in their orchard.

I really loved the way these pictures turned out!

Cousins | Boise Children’s Photography

The last year and a half has been such a huge blessing to our family. We’ve had three boys born within 9 months, and they are each amazing little guys! (See the individual sessions here: Blake, Elliot, and Levi). It has been so fun to see each of them grow and change, and develop his own little personality. They’re just now getting to the stage where they notice each other, and though they more play alongside one another rather than with each other, it’s still a beautiful thing to see.

We thought getting some pictures of the boys together was in order… though it proved to be a pretty difficult task! :)  But I think I got a few good ones:

It certainly did mine (though I may be slightly biased). I look forward to many more years of taking pictures of these three. Though I may come to be known as the “aunt who always has the camera in our faces.” Oh well. The pictures are worth it right? :)
