Boise family photographer
This past summer, the Treasure Valley spent weeks covered in smoke from wildfires in our neighboring states. I was heavily pregnant, feeling terrible, and migraine-prone, so add all of that to the fact that my sunshine was gone for weeks on end, and it was a bit of a sad couple months photo-wise. (And yes, the wildfires were terribly destructive on their own and that was much more awful in its own right!)
This family lives several hours away from me and had planned a day trip for their session. We’d already had to reschedule once, and the time we had left to shoot before my rapidly approaching due date was dwindling. When our session date arrived, the valley got completely covered in thick smoke again, much to my frustration – but there was no other opportunity to push back their session.
But what seemed like a drawback at the time ended up creating some of the softest and loveliest photos I’ve ever taken. It wasn’t like shooting on an overcast day – the light was orange and odd – but it was beautiful in its own way, and worked perfectly.
Photography is always an adventure – sometimes higher stakes than others – and I’m so grateful for work that is never repetitive or predictable!
This session was featured on The Motherhood Anthology.
