meridian idaho photographer // family photos on the boise river

We’re at the end of a gorgeous autumn right now, but I’m trying to sneak in a few more summer sessions before I’ve really waited a ridiculously long time to post them. ;) This mama and her boys… well, all I can really say is that boys who love their mamas are one of my favorite things to photograph. I probably make that statement about everything I photograph, because I am in love with this whole job of course, but truly, seeing boys who love and respect their mothers is something that makes me feel all the feelings. Here’s to strong, tender women raising strong, tender boys. Enjoy all the love and that golden light and the cottonwood fluff falling like summertime snow.

These photos are a mix of digital and Fuji400h scanned and developed by TheFINDlab.

boise family photographer // a dear friend's maternity photos

I photographed this dear, sweet friend of mine not long before we moved to Boise. We’ve been friends since college, and both of us ended up moving out of San Diego around the same time - and just before her first darling babe was born. I SO wish I had been able to meet Fiona in person, but photographing her beautiful parents was still incredibly special, as I’ve known them since they were dating long, LONG distance halfway across the world.
