Steven called me this last Friday from Tennessee asking if I had a last minute opening to come out and photograph his proposal to his girlfriend Cassie. He was coming into town for the weekend. His plan was to go to the Botanical Gardens, find a good spot and have me capture it. The only issue was that he had never met me and how was I going to get close enough and not be suspicious...SOooo I thought I'll bring the family. I had Aaron play with Amelia super close to them so that I could pretend I was taking pictures of her. (with a 70-200mm lol, you can see them in the background) So it was the perfect cover!! I am so thankful! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Look at how adorable this family is with the sweetest little girl!! I die over little sweethearts like her!!! <3
I have known Alex for a ton of years and was SUPER excited when he booked a session with his wife and his ADORABLE son!! We laughed, read books, and played with big sticks. I just love these types of sessions! Thank you Jen and Alex for being so wonderful!!! <3
The College of Idaho played a very important roll in the making of a marriage for Elynn and Dominic. They met each other just steps away from where he finally asked her to marry him. It was under the big pine tree right outside Sterry Hall in the Morrison Quadrangle so it was fitting to get celebrate there too! What a beautiful day for the perfect wedding.

Nate Perkes has been a photographer friend since I started my career in photography back in 2009. I was first introduced to him online during Creativelive.com's Jasmine Stars live wedding. He was chosen out of 100's of photographers to be on the live taping. As I was watching her shoot, I noticed that he was from Idaho! What?! NO WAY!! I reached out to him to meet up with a few of us at Boise City Coffee to say hi! From then we have stayed friends and a group of us still meet up when wedding season isn't in full swing. If you haven't taken a look at Nate's AMAZING work, PLEASE do! It's romantic and beautiful! Such an inspiration.
Nate is a total goof and is so much fun, so you can imagine what this session was like. I mean his wife, first of all, is STUNNING and so fun! You could tell that they let their cares melt away and really allowed their love for their kids show through. It's a beautiful thing to let someone come into your family's life and document it as it is...I mean of course they don't always go up into the foothills and play way past bedtime but you get it. It was exactly what I envisioned.
Thank you Nate and Luisa for allowing me to document your first official family photos (does this count for official lol) You were absolutely perfect!
