Dream Clients {Southeast Idaho Family Photographer}

I have had a lot of amazing clients since I started this business...

...however, one of the biggest obstacles I run into is trying to find pretty, unique locations in Southeast Idaho, especially Rexburg. You either have to hike the Tetons or trespass onto someone's gorgeous farm to get a unique shot. Or, of course, have connections...

...which this family GAVE me! I believe the conversation went something like this:

"Hi, I'm interested in having you take our family pictures? We live about 10-15 minutes outside of Rexburg."

"Great! Did you have a location in mind?"

"Well, actually, we live on this gorgeous farm with a barn, lots of fences and fields, and several streams and creeks running through it."

Are you kidding!? This really never happens.

If anyone else has out there lives on gorgeous private property, let me know! You won't even have to leave your yard for family portraits!!

I had SO much fun with this family! You can see how cheerful and willing they were in every picture! Which is saying something, because my memory card was full by the end of the session, and it holds over 600 files!

It was all worth it, though, to get a cd with well over 100 finished files on it! I just keep shooting forever with little ones like this!

Enjoy this preview! Summertime is so gorgeous in SE Idaho and it doesn't last long; 
let's book some sessions!

How sweet are their matching plaids? Check out that little guy's bright baby blues!

My favorite family photo of the day

Little Miss T was so helpful with her little brother the whole time!

He wanted that hat the whole session!

Love this :o)

I know Miss T's eyes are closed, but I just love that she's hugging him so tight she closed her eyes :o) He's so content with his sister!

COLD creek water!

Let Them Be Little {Southeast Idaho Family Photographer}

Every once in awhile I get a really good "let kids be kids" shoot...that's exactly what these two adorable boys provided! Their parents let them play and wiggle and explore like the boys they are, the oldest not much older than a toddler, and we'd snapped away. Their goal was a family portrait and mama's college graduation portraits. We achieved both, along with tons of really fun pictures that captures their energy and personalities! It was so much fun--and a challenge, at times--to try and be as active as a toddler. Not to mention trying to be one step ahead of these guys with a camera and the right settings for the area they were running to!

There were pools and fountains everywhere...just heaven for little boys, a bit of chaos for mom!

I love good sun-soaked portraits...I didn't even have to swap a face here; they all stopped and smiled!

Swapped 2 heads, Photoshopped out one sucker stick and one Buzz Lightyear gun. It was good practice and well worth it to get the results!

He decided to pause and pose for the camera...then was off like a rocket!

Both in school, working, and juggling 2 kids...they are my heroes!

We combined the family shoot with senior pictures for a VERY well-deserved graduation celebration!

Love it :o) Trying to convince him to stop and smell the roses wasn't in his plans, but he cooperated anyway!

Patchy sun is fun sometimes!

Thank you, K + M for helping your boys through this shoot; you guys are very hard-working parents and I could just eat up these little redheads of yours!

The Prettiest Pink {Southeast Idaho Family Photographer}

This little Baby M was ALL girl! We had SO much fun with her little dress and pearls...and so did she!

This was her six month old photo shoot, but we made sure to get some updated family pictures as well.

We were lucky enough to have great light at a great location with a baby in a great mood! Score!

Enjoy; I had a hard time picking just a few favorites; this little girl was just such a ham!
Mom and dad were such great sports!

Hello, Vogue!

Complete with painted toes :o)
Love this one!
Little Miss M not only SMILED and was in a great mood, but she smiled right at me (or at least in my general direction) for most of the shoot!

The sky/light in the background might be distracting, but I LOVE that face, so I'm calling it a keeper!

What a HAM!
