Falls sessions open!

Yay! I’m opening a few sessions up for the fall. Not so yay. Only a few. Up for grabs are 3 sessions, one in September, October, and November. They can be senior, family, or engagement. I really do wish I could accommodate everyone who has contacted me about pictures, but . . . I can’t. First come, first serve. You can either call and set up arrangements for payment, or you can pay through paypal on my website, here. Can’t wait to hear from you and plan out some amazing fall shoots!

At home with the Bradleys

I literally get teary when I see great images of families and kids. I guess because it’s dawning on me that those times don’t last forever. In some ways that’s good. I mean, you REALLY don’t want to wake up at 2 am every night or be stepping on legos for the rest of your life. Or maybe you do. . .   I am sure that one day, others with kids and I will wake up and wish for legos, and middle of the night cries, and snotty faces, and snuggles, and tickles, and all the beautiful, heart-wrenching parts of parenthood and childhood. For now, we will just soak it all in.

Brown eyed girls

It is definitely the middle of July. Hot. Dry. Hot. So glad Geri and her family met me bright and early before we melted in the blazing sun. We started out with a bee sting, but the girls were troopers and pretty darn tough. Geri, you have such a beautiful family and some sweet, sweet girls. I know you’re enjoying this fleeting time with them! Hope these pictures help cement the memories in your mind.

Sweet blondie

So while we were up camping with my sister and her family, we planned some pictures for my sweet little niece. I mean, why not take advantage of the glorious mountains and idyllic fields! I had thought about this the last time we were camping, when aforementioned mountains and fields were the background for MY kids’ grubby faces and mismatched camping clothes. So this time, we came prepared! In between digging in the dirt and gobbling up sticky s’mores, we scrubbed her up good and put sparkling clean clothes on her. Lucky girl! With promises of more dirt and more s’mores, we went in search of mountains and fields and were not disappointed. Ahhhh, I do love Idaho!

A super cool family at The Village – Meridian Family Photographer

Aggggghhhhh, this was such a fun shoot! Honestly, I think it helps when I know the people so well. I don’t feel weird asking them to do funny things, and they don’t feel weird when I ask them to do funny things. Well, maybe they do, but they still oblige. Marcie and Mike, you are becoming regulars on my blog, but that’s a good thing! Feel free to revisit their engagement photos here and their wedding here. Seriously, you guys have an amazing family and I’m so glad we could have some fun together and capture some pictures along the way. I love them, I hope you do too!!!
