This girl was so much fun! I met Rachel on a FaceBook group and she needed some new headshots. It was an amazing blogger/lifestyle photography session. We had some extra time so she dressed up in some cute outfits and we had a lot of fun at a local Burbank coffee shop!

This little family makes me feel under-accomplished. Faith and her husband are restoring a 100-year-old farmhouse, raise goats, chickens, vegetables. They’ll take in most animals in need. They’re also raising two very busy young girls. So when I got a chance to photograph them all at sunset, I was very excited. They put on some dresses, brought out a blanket, and family photos started.

This little family was such a joy to work with! Look at their new family photos!!! I met Bre through my sister and she has those delicate, doe-eyes and such a kind personality. Although I love doing family pictures in Los Angeles, the scenery around my native state is very hard to beat. This was an old country road I walked or rode many times with my horse and family.

As you can probably tell from these photos, this girl was absolutely delightful! We took her graduation pictures in Boise at the Boise State University campus, where she was about to earn her degree in Education. All the best to you, Amber!

This girl is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. She’s compassionate, intelligent, has an amazing eye for design and photography, and is just fun to be around. So I was very honored when she asked me to do her senior pictures. This was one of many shoots we did, for fun, as we traded the camera back and forth. Although I frequently do graduation pictures in Los Angeles, these were done back home in Idaho.

I love doing Christmas mini-sessions. A mini-session is basically a temporary studio where I set up in a pretty place and families/couples come to me. It’s cheaper for them, and it’s worth it for me. I love giving families and couples affordable photography, and this is one way to do it! This mini-session I set up with an amazing Idaho winery, Hell’s Canyon, last Christmas.

I can’t claim to be an expert. But throughout my photography career I’ve amassed a bag of tricks I use to get kids to cooperate with photos. I grew up in a large family and my mom was also a very good photographer. So I learned some from her, some from hanging with my nieces and nephews, and some from just plain old remembering what it was like to be a kid. So here’s my top advice to parents and photographers.

Kat is such a beautiful person, inside and out. I loved this opportunity to give her some new modeling headshots. We did these in a local studio with a simple, dark background.

This little family is so gorgeous! I got to photograph them for Eagle Life, an Idaho lifestyle magazine. At first these three beautiful girls didn’t want to be photographed. But I take it as part of my job as a family photographer to try my best to get kids (both young and old) involved and happy. So they ended up participating and they are all SO CUTE!! This was the back porch of their family home.

This baby was so dynamic! Her different faces were hilarious! I love doing newborn photography in Los Angeles. I typically do in-home sessions because it’s easier for parents, but I also take portraits in my studio. This session brought tears to my eyes, because I photographed the parents getting engaged, their wedding, maternity photos, and now it’s come full circle and I got to photograph this little new life!
