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!
