Boise Newborn Photographer | Hoefing family Fresh 48 | St. Luke's Children's Hospital

Big confession time. Years ago when I was asked to photograph in the hospital I (embarrassingly!) turned them all down due to fear. I know, I know….I feared that horrible lighting, those yellow walls, and all the uncertainty that comes with walking into the unknown. I learned a huge lesson. Try it. Try it when it seems “too” hard. Or even if you might “fail”. Because you never know what might be a new love. Here we are 5 years later and I’m obsessed (and honored!) to be invited into your corner of the hospital…

Boise Family Photographer | Lifestyle Family Session at Military Reserve

One of my favorite places in the world is right in our backyard and a place I take so many of the families I photograph throughout the year. Boise, your foothills are amazing and always a classic when it comes to tall grass, open fields, gorgeous trees, and a downtown view after a short hike.

This family gave me an incredible night and if you ever ask me if dogs are invited, I always say “pleaseeee bring them!!!” with extra exclamation points! I can’t wait to play with this crew again and again!

Boise Wedding Photographer | Hailey + Joe | Barber Park

Talk about a gorgeous wedding! When I met Hailey and her mom Tonya back in January I knew right away we’d all hit it off great. We sat down over a cup of coffee and they told me all their story, plans, dreams for their wedding day, and I felt right at ease knowing I was their girl. The details and work they put into everything was shown and I had the most incredible time documenting it.

Boise Lifestyle Photographer | Linehan family, boise foothills

These three. No words to describe how wonderful they all are. I've known Kimi since my Starbucks barista days and when that sweet girl was in mama's belly. All of us would get overly excited when we saw her car pull around the corner so we could serve her a tasty beverage...And when she stopped coming for a few weeks we all knew her babe was here. We've kept in touch off and on (not often enough if you ask me!) and when she wanted photos this summer I kept looking at the calendar and counting down the days like it was Christmas. The love they all have for each other made it effortless to capture and it was a dream session for my photographer heart. Take me back to that evening again and again!  Love you, sweet friends. xoxo
