Friends from South America – Meridian family photographer

Who would have thought they would come all the way from South America just to get their pictures taken in frigid Idaho weather? Well, perhaps there were other reasons for visiting as well. It’s been so nice catching up with them and it will be so hard to see them leave again in a few weeks! Katie, my dear friend, we worked so hard to find the perfect time for pictures and ended up on a freezing day with snow and rain. All I have to say, is you and your family are such troopers! Such perfect smiles in between all the shivering, hand warmers, and raindrop dodging. No one will even be able to tell! It was definitely a memory we will refer back to for years to come. Love you guys!meridian-family-photographer-downtown-2meridian-family-photographer-downtown-1meridian-family-photographer-downtown-5meridian-childrens-photographer-downtown-1meridian-family-photographer-downtown-4meridian-family-photographer-downtown-6meridian-childrens-photographer-downtown-2

Me and mine – Meridian family photographer

So this was definitely a collaborative effort with my sister.  We always help each other out with family pictures, but we always seem to wait until it’s bitterly cold outside. Brilliant idea with toddlers. Anyways, thank you Linda for making sure I have a few pictures of my own family on this blog. Although I never really planned on this whole crazy-motherhood-thing-with-4-kids, it’s turned out to be just what I wanted. Aghhh. Love them so much it hurts.

A walk through the lavender – Meridian Children’s Photographer

So I took these back in July but never had a chance to blog them. I drive by these lavender fields almost every day and knew that someday I would take Josie’s pictures there. Or Jason’s. But somehow the idea of Jason holding a bunch of lavender near his face didn’t have quite the same appeal. Anyways, Josie is my dream model. She sits and smiles and wants me to take her picture all day long. Only requirement is that I show her each one in the camera after I take it. Indeed, I sometimes have trouble getting more candid shots of her because she is so aware of the camera. Quite precocious that one. Last week she looked in the mirror and whispered to herself, “adorable.” What’s a mom to do?

And so the sun sets – Meridian Family Photographer

Well. Officially, this is my last session. Of course, you KNOW I will still take pictures of my own kids, so I’m not shutting this blog down completely. I have to say I could not have ended on a better note. Kristy and I have been planning this shoot for ages, ever since she won a gift certificate at a school auction. I think it all worked out for the best, because we ended up with a perfect evening. Perfect. I love this family and I’m so glad we had this chance. Thank you for making it so easy and fun. And thank you for climbing that hill for a look at the sunset. It was so worth it! Enjoy!
