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

What can I say, I'm a sucker for love and adventures. My hubs has been buddies with this man since before I met him and they were both residence assistants at BSU when I was in their hall.  I got to know Lance throughout college and then he stood up with us as we said our "I do's". When we were early married he introduced us to rock climbing and we spent a few great summers climbing multi pitches up to see the best views in Idaho...

Newborn inquiries have been flooding my inbox lately and I'm pretty over the moon about it. This sweet family welcomed baby girl number 2 and it couldn't have been a smoother morning session. I never know if baby will sleep at all when they're 3 weeks (which is okay for a lifestyle session and just as precious when they don't ;) ) but more times than not we get a snoozer, with or without an excited big sis. It also amazes me how quickly they learn how to sleep through the excitement when they have a sibling. Give me all the babies to photograph, Boise!

Another perfect spring evening in the Boise foothills. I'm a little late in blogging this session, but busy season has begun, friends!  If you haven't noticed but I live for the hills, but especially in the spring and fall. These sisters were so sweet to photograph and they all proved they love to have a good time. I have to be honest, a few extra nerves showed up this time when mama is a photographer herself. All worth the added pressure for the outcome. Scroll down to see what they’re doing for the finished product!

You know who has a good time doing just about anything together? The Reece family. From start to finish we played, laughed, and I got to witness some amazing dance moves. I had so much fun documenting their silly personalities and showing them how fun lifestyle photography sessions truly are. It was their first of many and next time I vow to bring bug spray for all.

Boise Newborn Photographer | 5 Tips Before Your Newborn Lifestyle Session

Boise Newborn Photographer | 5 Tips Before Your Newborn Lifestyle Session

I get a lot of questions about newborn lifestyle photography and what to expect. Let's do a quick refresher on what lifestyle photography is and why I'm completely obsessed with it. 

Let's set the scene. You just brought home your new baby and instantly that little human starts growing (oh, so much faster than we'd like to admit). What will you want to remember when that little human is all grown? Perhaps those tiny fingers wrapped around yours or how easy their head fit into dad's palms? Possibly the way you and dad looked at him completely in love and thankful that he's finally here?
