Boise River Family Photos

Boise River Family Photos | by Hannah Mann Photography

I met Krista, a wonderful family photographer based in Minnesota, when she joined my coaching program, Unbasic Creatives. She was part of my very first round, and I still look back so fondly on the incredible group of women who I had the privilege of working with and who had faith in me from the very beginning.

After our mastermind was over, she traveled to Boise so that she could shoot and learn alongside me in person. She also brought her family along for a vacation in some of Idaho’s best mountain spots, and I got to photograph them together!

This session had the potential to be extremely challenging: not only had this family had quite a long drive into town for photos, but the kids were running on a timezone two hours different than ours, and it ended up being one of the hottest days of the entire year. Summers here are hot, yes, but also they tend to be dry and are very tolerable by the river. However, we received what felt like our hottest and most humid day by far (it reminded me of my years in Pennsylvania and southeast Texas!), just in time for pictures. When I say that we were dripping, I am not exaggerating at all. I was absolutely shocked at how disgusting our weather was for my out of town visitors.

All in all, however, it was everything I could have hoped for. Yes, the weather was awful, but the river was cool and soothing, the kids held it together wonderfully, and I walked away with too many favorite images.

Nearly every summer, at least one student travels to visit me in Boise, and family photos for my students are always a highlight. If you’re interested in setting up an in-person styled shoot, or if you’re traveling through the area and would like photos done, send me a message!

Wardrobe notes: The outfits in these photos belonged to my client, but I offer the same (or nearly the same) pieces in my own wardrobe! Mom’s and daughter’s dresses are both available from me in similar sizes, and I offer nearly the same pieces that these boys are wearing. Everyone who books a full session with me gets free access to my wardrobe, which includes dozens and dozens of gorgeous options for women, children, and babies. I’ve curated this intentionally over time so that busy mothers of all stages have flattering, stylish options that photograph beautifully, at no additional cost. I save families who use my wardrobe hours of time shopping and hundreds of dollars on unnecessary new clothes. After booking a session with me, clients can set up a private wardrobe appointment to try on clothing, and I also work with any pieces my clients own and want to use as well. This service is wonderful, and also always optional.

I’m Hannah. I’m a photographer and educator based in Boise, Idaho, where I live with my favorite guy ever and our four little ones.

I’m obsessed with photographing families and celebrating the legacy that they are building – the one that is more important than anything else they will ever build in this life. I love capturing my clients at their beautiful best, yet never abandoning the raw and real. Neither is better than the other, and a great session is the perfect mix of both.

Say goodbye to stressful family sessions, underwhelming images, and wasted time. Instead, get ready for a seamless experience, plus photos you want to hang all over your walls – because they capture the heart of your family, and the beauty of the legacy that you’re building… and you all look amazing, too.

It’s so much more than taking pictures – it’s a celebration of the biggest treasures that life has to offer: loving, and being loved.
