boise film photographer // growing up

I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy seeing the same families year after year and watching their children grow. My sessions with this mother are always so special to me because her boys aren’t all that young anymore, and so many families stop prioritizing photos once their children are past their littlest years. But the thing is that they’re still changing, the memories are still being made, and they’re still our ‘babies’ even if they are even in fact teenagers. Don’t stop documenting these years with your children. Sure, it might not look like airplanes and kisses and snuggles like it did when they were babies or toddlers, but it’s tender glances, heads on shoulders, and portraits that give a glimpse of the men and women they’re quickly becoming.

I nearly died of happiness when I saw the colors in the scans from PhotoVision! Fuji400h as always.

boise newborn photographer // the seeley family

I photographed this family of seven while on a trip through northern CA, and gosh I had a wonderful time! Five siblings is just magic. Kelli (the mother) is a fantastic photographer herself, and her children did so wonderfully. Most of these are shot on Fuji400h, processed by PhotoVision, my fave. This session was also featured on Haven! Enjoy!

our summer // boise fine art photographer

Summer vacation is just about over, and I definitely wasn’t ready for it to come so soon. We’ve had the best summer, simply spending time with friends, playing at the park and in the splash pads, being unstructured and spontaneous, and spending as much time outside as possible. While we’re all ready for it too cool off a few degrees (Adelaide says she’s ready for winter - I’m not!), I think that diving back into homeschool in a couple weeks is going to feel like a little bit of a shock. ;)

These are a handful of my favorite photos from this summer. We went cherry picking up in Emmett one Sunday afternoon, and it was quiet and peaceful (and delicious) and perfect. I brought a roll of very expired Polaroid film, and while I honestly don’t love the colors of it, I do love these photos and that I could just bring my film camera and be fully present during our family time and not looking through pictures I’d taken or worrying too much about them. It was just for fun, and for memories.
