Blake | Boise Newborn Photography

My little nephew is here!!!! And he is so precious… I just can’t get enough of his sweet little face!

I was so excited to do this session with Jenn and Kevin (see their maternity session here) and baby Blake. I loved getting to see my brother in his new role as a daddy, and Jenn is such a wonderful mama! This was my first hospital newborn session, and I enjoyed every second of it. Getting to photograph a baby when he is only one day new is awesome!

Here are some of my favorite pictures:

This just melts my heart… so sweet!

Look at that tiny little yawn! Awwww….

Such a beautiful family!


Jenn and Kevin, thanks so much for letting me come and do this session for you!

Jenn and Kevin | Boise Maternity Photography

I absolutely love doing maternity sessions. There is something so special about capturing that pregnancy glow and the excitement as the soon-to-be parents get ready to have a baby. It’s especially exciting for me when I’m related to the couple!  🙂  Jenn and Kevin are expecting a little baby boy, and I can’t wait to meet my little nephew!

For this session we went to the river by the Hilton Garden Inn, over in Eagle. It’s such a beautiful location!

Jenn, you are a stunning pregnant lady!  🙂

The Ransom Family | Boise Family Photography

One of the best things about being back in Boise is that I’ve been able to get reacquainted with people I’ve met here and there during my visits home over the last ten years. One of the couples I’ve loved getting to know are the Ransoms. Kristen and I were in the same Bible study last fall and I loved getting to talk with her every week. When she mentioned that they wanted some family pictures done, I was beyond excited!

We headed out to the Boise Foothills on a breezy Sunday evening and hiked around the area for the session. It was so beautiful out there… and I couldn’t believe that I’d never been out there before!

I had a hard time narrowing down the pictures for this post because I loved so many of them… but here are a few of my favorites!

Such a beautiful couple!

How cute is this little guy? He was so much fun to photograph because he loves the camera 🙂

Kristen had mentioned that she and Jamie hadn’t taken any family photos with their extended family since their wedding, so we got both sides of the family out there for a quick group photo.


I like everything about this photo… perfect lighting, open fields, and two people very much in love.

The Ransoms are big BSU fans, and I love this photo of them rocking their BSU gear. Go Broncos!!!

Styled Wedding Shoot | Boise Wedding Photography

This post is a LONG time in coming… as in, from last summer! As some of you may know, over the last year I’ve had the incredible privilege of writing the book Digital Wedding Photography For Dummies, which will be released on April 8th, 2013. While writing a few sections of the book I realized that I needed certain instructional images for a few of the technical aspects of wedding photography that I was covering. So I decided to put together a mini styled shoot… and it ended up being a lot of fun! Here are a few of my favorite images:


I want to give a big thank you to Jennifer and Kevin, Jenn and Darius, Stephanie, and Andrew for being a part of this shoot! You guys look awesome!

The Cardon Family | Boise Family Photography

One of the best things about moving back to Boise has been reconnecting with all my long-time friends, and meeting new ones as well!

I met Sandy and Chris at our church, and was absolutely thrilled when they asked if I’d do a family session with them. We headed over to Barber Park on a lovely fall afternoon and had a great time taking these photos!

This little one was SO much fun to photograph… she’s adorable right???

Heart melting…
