Sneak Peek - Boise Baby Portraits

You might recognize this little sweetie - her fall portraits were on my splash page for quite a while! Today, we did some Valentine's Portraits and some Birthday portraits since she just celebrated her 1st Birthday!

My Funny Valentine


She calls everything a "puppy" - even Balloons. hehe.


This one makes me laff.


Mmm. Caaaaake.


I just think she's the cutest!

In other news, I have a newborn session tomorrow that I am SUPER excited about, and plus I am doing some other "things" later that could possibly take my business and photography to another level! I've been offered an unique opportunity and will share details (if there are any!) as soon as I can! Cross your fingers for me :-)

Still being Dazzled - Boise Pet Portrait

I can't believe that we've had our kitten, Twilight, for a whole month already! I wanted to take a photo of her today to document how big she has gotten, but no, she wasn't having any of it! It took maybe an hour of trying on and off, a handful of cat treats, and my husband playing "cat fishing" with her from the side to get her to do ONE shot, but I got it, and that makes me happy!


Still Dazzled....One Month Later

1 month ago:

She dazzles me...

Isn't she getting BIG? She is trained to know her name, where to sleep (she has a variety of baskets with pink blankets in them!) and to use her litterbox.She loves her meow mix kitten food, cat treats, catnip, her mousie and to play "cat fishing". I think we will keep her!!
