Newborn Sneak Peek! - Boise Newborn Photographer

I told everyone that I was a busy chica! mmm hmmm, and I love it. Here's my sweet 8 day old from today, what a sweetie!

{too precious for words]


{squish plus smile}

{let me sleep}

{mommy's favorite flower}

In the last photo, these are actually Mom's favorite flowers - I picked them at my Mom's house before going on to the session - I must be clairvoyant! :-D

Thanks you guys for allowing me to photograph her - she's so cute!

Fairy Sneak Peek!

I just love doing fairytale sessions, and Miss R was a very sweet Fairy indeed!

{peek! a! boo!}

{absolute sweetness}


Isn't she the cutest?? Many thanks to my Assistant Rachel, and Mom and Grandma for keeping the little one in check! :-D

I have a newborn AND an adult session (a friend who is moving to England for 5 months!! I've already begged her to take me with her!) tomorrow, and a family on Monday - so stay tuned for more!

Sneak Peek! - Boise Child Photographer

(I actually had this all ready to go yesterday, but google was being weird, sorry!)

I've been looking forward to this session for a while - you see, I took this little man's Newborn portraits (and Mom's maternity photos too!) way back when, and Mom and I got back in touch when I did sister's Fairy Tale Session! He's 2 now, and such a cutie. He walked all over the train depot with me, holding my hand! awww!

{hmmm..should I smile or not?}


{walk the line}

{looooook! TWAIN!}

{gimme five!}

I have a few days "off" from taking photos, which is good because now I get to spend time in the glorious AC playing with all the photos from last week.

Sneak Peek!

I know, I am a busy chickie! I was honored to photograph my lovely assistant Rachel today with her honey for their engagement photos! They are so awesome, and fun :-)

I will be adding these today and tomorrow!

{i need you}

I love this one (er..both of these) We were up in the Bride's Room at the Train Depot!

I actually did 2 sessions today, so the other peek will up tomorrow!

Sneak Peek

In spite of the heat, I had a great time today with this little Miss,and her gorgeous Mommy and Auntie!

{time for a snuggle]

Attack Mom!

{pretty lady!}


{sweet flower sniffing requires concentration!}

{pensive fairy}

{blowing in the wind}

I know, this is a alot of photos for a peek! But they were such troopers in the heat, and I just had the best time! I didn't include any of Auntie, since we did some headshots for her Med school app, but I'll add those to your gallery asap!

also, I've given Mom a special challenge, she needs to get a certain amount of comments by July 5 to win a free enlargement! She knows how many she needs!

Mommy Training

I'm not a mother yet, but I've sure learned alot about kids this past week - I've been a nanny before, and have spent tons of time with the boys, but it's just different when you are with them 24/7! We have had fun though, I haven't been able to so any sessions, but the parents will be home tomorrow, and I have Sessions all weekend to get my fix! I'll be doing a 4 year old (and fairy too!), a family, and an engagement session! woo!

Here's some of my favorite photos from the week:

We took the boys to Rockie's Diner. They were in "love" with the "Skatetresses"!


Banana Split!


We finished it, all right!
banana split, literally.

We went to the "water fountain park" in Eagle, only to find out that the fountains were OFF! So we went to Ann Morrison Park


gonna get you!

We also went to another park earlier in the week to let the boys right their scooters, I only have photos of Luke since Daniel decided to go find a girl to play with in the playground! (Such a ladies man!)


Stay tuned for a NEW Newborn Special and some more photos of my baby "Venus"!

Happy Father's Day!

My Daddy is out of town, but we will be honoring him when he returns!

Here is a photo from my wedding in 2006

Walking down the aisle

My husband is also a father, he's off visiting right now while I hang out with Luke and Daniel.

Love My Men

We're about to head out to Eagle to play in the "Waterpark where there are those fountain thingys" at the boys request - It should be fun, and I'll post some photos later. Here's some from a few years back -

Another of my favorite baby in the world!

How fast can I crawl away from the camera?

Some sad news on the homefront - My grandfather died early this morning at the age of 92. My parents were already in California visting with him, and are staying another several days for the funeral. I've had to postpone some things, but will be back to work next weekend.

I also have two small boys in my charge, and we have a case of the icky tummies, so our day was filled with watching the Robots movie four times, drinking pedialyte and eating applesauce and graham crackers...ah, this is the life?

This is sort of a sneak peek, but I only have one done right now. This little one is one of my best friends babies...and one of my favorite models. We did her 6 month photos today, and she was a trooper even though she was hungry, tired, and teething!


Afterwards, we got to go to Burger King with our friends, play and eat out! and tonight, we are going to see "Horton Hears a Who!" I can't wait, I think I might enjoy it more than the kids...

Free Time?

Is there such a thing? My session for today rescheduled, so I am having a lazy day. It's so much fun! I'm not working, just puttering around on the computer, got to go to about 10 yard sales, but I didn't buy anything (i have to be choosy because I have too much stuff already!), took my hunny out to lunch, and now we're out for coffee and internet!

I hope everyone else is having a good weekend too!

I just love maternity sessions - I have another one on Monday, and I can't wait!
Here's another from last weeks:

{at the gate}

I am a busy girl with several sessions this week - In additon to the maternity I'm doing a 6 month session (of one of my favorite bebes EVER), an engagement session, and a family session. I'm also going to go shopping for some new props too!
