Mr. & Mrs. Kober|Boise Wedding Photographer



I love shooting at The Bishops’ House!  It’s one of my favorite wedding venues here in Boise.  I had so much fun working with these two on their wedding day and had forgotten how adorable they are together!!  Such a fun, special day.  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Kober!  Here are some of my favorite memories from your beautiful day!

Little Mena|Boise Family Photographer



  This beautiful family is moving out of state very soon so mom wanted to do a mommy and me session with Boise as the backdrop.   Heaven is the only word coming to mind as I swoon over these photos!  I just love them so much!!  I had such a blast with these beauties and am happy as can be they chose me to take their last photos here.

Chantel|Boise Maternity Photographer



I am just soooo in love with this session!!!  This gorgeous mama to be makes the morning light even more bright.  I shot her lovely wedding in McCall just last year and was so excited she wanted to work with me again! I can’t wait to see what her wee one will look like!  If I’m lucky enough I’ll get to meet him. :)

Baby Grayson|Boise Family Photographer



I introduce with complete excitement and love my handsome little nephew!  The most adorable, sweet, smart, and beautiful baby boy I’ve ever known.  I just love him so much and can’t get over the fact that I’m an aunt and that these two are parents!!  Feeling old over here, but in a good way. :)  I’m so amazed at the patience and love for this little man that my brother and sister in law have.  They have been parents for 17 days and are just so good that I get teary eyed thinking about it!  Ahhh ok enough already with that!  Go on and “awwweeee” over this precious boy.

Fitzgerald Family|Boise Family Photographer



If you’ve been following my work for any length of time you’ve likely seen these faces before!  They’re one of my favorite families!  Not just to work with, favorite ever!!  Grandma and grandpa were visiting from Florida so we had to do some photos with them.  These kids just amaze me with how smart, funny, and beautiful they are!  I wonder where they get that from? ;)

E Family|Boise Family Photographer



People ask me all the time “what’s your favorite thing to shoot?”  THIS!!!!  This. is. my. favorite.  Those little faces and squishy legs!!  Mom and dad are just the best.  Such great sports and you can see it all over their faces.  This is real, this is fun, this is in no way perfect, but yet it is.  I love capturing moments like these with families.  The pure joy, the laughter, the meltdowns… I love it all.  How beautiful is this family?!

New Zealand!|Boise Photographer



Did you know I went to New Zealand a few months ago?!  Well, I did!  I’m going to try to keep this short and sweet but I had an amazing time!  I’ve been out of the country before right after graduating high school (we won’t discuss how long ago that was).  This was the first time for my husband.  I think if you’ve never been to another country NZ is a great first place to go.  The culture is very similar to ours.  No crazy foods, accents, or climate.  Very easy to get acclimated within a day or two.

We left Boise Thursday March 27th, and landed in Auckland Saturday March 29th.  Skipping Friday and not getting much sleep on the plane was a bit rough.  If you get the chance to go to NZ, or anywhere that’s a 12 hour flight and are able to fly business class DO IT!  It was amaaaaaazing being able to actually lay down and sleep for a few hours.  I was totally impressed with the food, wine, and service.  We were seriously spoiled really.

My husband and I were on this trip with my dad.  For him is was a bit of a business trip, but he had a lot of down time to hang with us.  One of his friends (Steve) lives in Wellington and drove up to Auckland to show us the city.  I LOVED Auckland.  It’s so beautiful and has a great night life.  We had some really good food there and just walked around the harbor mainly.  We didn’t spend much time downtown, I wasn’t really interested in seeing tall buildings and tourists.  I wanted to experience more of the local culture… the food, the water, the boats, the docks.  We don’t have that here, and it’s what I miss most about CA & FL and don’t get to see the ocean often enough.  We stayed in Auckland for a couple days and then we headed South with Steve.  We just took our time driving to Wellington, stopping along the way in some really cool towns and little fishing communities.  Steve has a beautiful farm in Wellington with horses.  I forget how many he has now but it’s somewhere around 50!  We also met up with two other friends of my dads.  One welcomed us to their home for a wonderful dinner after taking us out on their beautiful yacht for the day.  The other also had us to their amazing home for the best dinner I’ve ever had.  You’ll see photos of that dinner below with a big prawn on my plate!

 Here’s a list all of my favorite places we visited with links so this post is’t a mile long. :)   We visit Huka Falls, Huka Prawn Park where we went prawn fishing for dinner!  The Waitomo Glowworm Caves which were absolutely amazing!  Although you can’t take photos so that was sad.  We stayed in Taupo for a few days which might have been my favorite place we stayed.  We took a fishing charter on Lake Taupo.  You’ll see some photos below that look smokey, it’s actually smoke from the volcano there that is spewing!  We stopped at Ngarunui Beach lookout which was so beautiful.  A popular surf area.  We took a ferry over to Devonport, a historic victorian village just across the harbor from Auckland.  We stayed at the Museum Hotel in Wellington which was interesting.  Very cool hotel with really crazy art everywhere.  We also ate at their restaurant the Hippopotamus.  It’s super fancy, super French, and super amazing!  We had an incredible 6 course wine pairing meal that I want right now!!

Below are some photos I took.  Some are just from my phone, I took my camera along but tried to enjoy the experience of NZ without that thing in my face so much.  Sometime it’s nice just to take it all in and not worry about getting great photos.  At least for me anyway.  I hope when you see these you feel like you’re on a vacation too!  Enjoy!

Mr. & Mrs. Calixtro



Last weekend I shot another wonderful wedding!!  It was my first time shooting out in Wilder at Wild Heart Springs and I fell in love!  Such a beautiful venue, with the nicest owners.

I loved soooo many moments from this wedding!  A few that top my list… the fact that we had perfect weather (pretty much always my favorite thing),  Delila was there with me getting the girls all gussied up.  I just love watching her do her magic!  The bride and grooms adorable little girl wanted NOTHING to do with photos… except for taking her own with her pink camera.  During the ceremony there was a hilarious moment when a ring was lost in the grass (pictures below crack me up).  The bride and her father surprised everyone with a crazy fun dance mash up that included booty shaking, kung foo fighting, and tons o’ laughs.  There was also a surprise Hawaiian dance performance.  The reception had a total Dirty Dancing feel too it which I must say I LOVED.  I don’t think it was intentional, but I had so much fun pretending it was. :)

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Calixtro!!!  Enjoy reliving your special day!
