Happy New Year

How can it be the end of 2016 already? I’m not sure about you all, but sometimes it seems the days are long, but the years fly by! 2016 was no exception. I am thankful for the clients I captured in front of my camera this year. I purposely took less sessions in order to finish a large project I had committed to for the Idaho Cattle Association. I admit my portrait business took a back seat to other work. While there may have been fewer sessions, they were each unique and special.

Thanks to all my past and present clients. While I had been a photographer prior to this, I officially launched my portrait business in 2008. It has definitely been a journey. One thing I am sure of is I have absolutely enjoyed each and every client through the years. I have learned something new from each session. I have struggled in some ways. I have succeeded in others. I definitely have grown as an artist. And I am so, so thankful to have the opportunity to continue capturing  your lifestyle and telling YOURStories! God bless and Happy New Year!

I’ve enjoyed photographing this family for a few years now, watching them welcome their first son, then their second. They both own small businesses, and I was thrilled when they first contacted me to schedule a newborn session. They had never had a family session and it worked out perfectly to schedule one for the end of fall.

Enjoy the preview and leave this family some love by commenting below.

Aww, such a sweet family. It’s always fun getting them in front of my camera, capturing the girls’ personalities and the love they have for each other.

As a Nampa, Idaho, family photographer, I find out what kind of session my clients want during our initial consultation. We spend time visiting about what the family (usually mom) wants out of their session. Are we capturing a special milestone, annual family session, etc.? We talk about location, which I always suggest happens at their home or a place that means something to them. I have found through the years families and children are the most relaxed when we capture them where they live, love, play or work. We discuss what to wear and also what time of day will be best for the session. We talk about the final products clients want to create from their session, which is one of the most important things.

As a full-service, professional photographer, providing you with tangible products to enjoy as the end of your session is part of the experience you have with me. Whether it be a YOURStory Album, Wall Gallery, Image Display Box or a special product we create together, you will be able to enjoy your images for years to come.
