Boise Portrait Photographer: Self Portrait

I read an article on how to do self portraits and was intrigued.  I decided that since I am always the one behind the camera, I should probably take a few pics of me in front of the camera.  So, here is one of my self portraits....

Boise Family Photographer: B. Family

I was so happy to be able to take pictures for this family.  The Mom is my daughter's preschool teacher and the Dad is our Bishop at church and I taught their oldest daughter in one of my classes at church.  They are a really great family!

Boise Family Photographer: S. Family

When I took these pictures, I was one of about 5 other photographers at this location.  And it is a great location!  I love the warm colors of the leaves and the fall feeling in these photos.  I was so happy I got a cute one of their little boy.  He kept me running for it but had such a sweet smile and personality I had to try to get a good closeup!

Boise Family Photographer: M. Family

I was able to check out a new place with this fun family.  We drove to some orchards out in Nampa and I love the look the bright red apples give the pictures.  You know you are in the boonies when there is a tractor crossing sign and every truck you pass has a boy driving with the girl sitting right next to him.  Ha ha ha.  I laugh because I live in Idaho and this is the country life I love.  Enjoy the pictures and thanks again for asking me to try out this new place!

Boise Photographer: Eyelashes

We were at Linder Farms the other weekend and went to see the petting zoo animals.  I couldn't believe how long the eyelashes were on this Zebra and thought I would take a pic.  I would love longer eyelashes.  Maybe not this long, but more would be nice :)

Boise Family Photographer: F. Family

I took this family's pictures when I first started out.  It is crazy how fast time flies and how much their kids have grown!  They let me try out a new location that I had been eyeing for some time now.  So glad it worked out!  I love the rustic/urban look of the trains and weeds.  Thanks for a great time guys!

Boise Family Photography: T. Family

This family was not unusual in the fact that when I photograph families and kids, the kids always give me a run for my money.  They keep me on my toes, but I still try to get shots of their personalities amongst all the running.  Little A. showed me her personality and liked to sing a song about a dinosaur, or was it a monster?  Hmm... it was a cute song nonetheless and it made her smile and show her personality.  That's all that matters, right?  So, here's some of my favorites from this shoot.....

Boise Senior Photographer; Ashley's Senior Pictures!

I was able to take these pictures for a beautiful senior. She made my job SO EASY and fun! I got to explore and try out a couple of different places/poses. The whole time I was editing, I kept saying, "Oh I like that one!", and "Oooh! The sun is perfect in this one!" I was pretty excited so many turned out so great for her. Thanks for the fun time!

Color Palette Generator

Are you great at picking contrasting colors to wear or colors to paint/decorate your house?  I am NOT.  Call me "Plain Jane" because I have a hard time mixing bright colors.  But, pictures are so fun to look at and so much more interesting if there are bright colors, right?  So, if you are like me and can't figure out what colors to wear for your family photo shoot... well, here is a great thing for you .  It is a color palette generator!  If you have a color you like, find a picture on the internet with that color, right click and copy the image location or URL and paste it onto this site.  It will generate colors for you that will work well together!  Problem solved!

I Heart Faces Photo Challenge- {A Touch of Sun}

There are so many photo challenges going around right now.  I decided to bite the bullet and do this one.  I took this senior out last week for some shots and was completely giddy while I was taking them.  You know when you are taking a picture of a beautiful person, the lighting is just right and you find some great places to take the pics?  Well, it happened this time.  It was probably one of the easiest shoots I have done because she has so much personality and it showed through in the pictures and I didn't even have to tell her how to pose or when to smile or look serious!  It was great!  To view more touch of sun photos, click the link below!

I love McCall, ID.  It is so beautiful and I am in heaven as we drive and see all the dilapidated barns and fences with barbed wire.  Call me weird, but I love those things.  Guess I was meant to be married to an Idaho boy all along.
