I have known Melissa for over half of our lives – she became one of my sister’s best friends waaaay back in the day and she’s been a really special person (along with her family) to my entire family. She is one of the few people in the world whose wedding I would happily photograph […]

This motherhood studio session was a part of a giveaway I teamed up with some amazing ladies for, and I couldn’t love these images more! This mother-son duo was just the sweetest, and these images will forever show the bond that they share with each other and the tenderness of this stage in their lives […]

My favorite photos I take of my family are quite different than what I take for my clients. They’re just… fun. And us. And really imperfect and relaxed. They’re exactly what I want them to be though: memories made with these precious children of mine, and reminders of the immense ways my husband and I […]

We know that family is hard, often every day, but gosh, it’s good too. It’s really, really good. And there’s no untangling the good from the hard – they’re just stuck together, at least as long as we’re living these earthly lives. But so much of the hard is exactly what makes the good all […]

But even then, it is beautiful in the most profound sense. This instinct to create love and multiply through it – the way we are filled by […]

We’re at the end of a gorgeous autumn right now, but I’m trying to sneak in a few more summer sessions before I’ve really waited a ridiculously long time to post them. 😉 This mama and her boys… well, all I can really say is that boys who love their mamas are one of my […]

I wanted to write some pretty words about these mama + daughter images, but it’s been a week of a stomach bug going through our family so… my brain isn’t functioning enough. 😉 These images were photographed on a mix of digital and Fuji400h film, and I hope you enjoy this sunshiney pair as much […]

I am so overdue sharing this sweet newborn session. I first met Ashley and Joe when I photographed their maternity session, which was recently featured on The Fount Collective, alongside the story of their journey through infertility. Of course, knowing how much these two had been through to get their sweet boy here, and how […]

Every time I’ve shot at the location in this session, a wonderful, quiet spot in the foothills above Boise, it has stormed in the late afternoon and then given way to the most glorious light I’ve ever seen – the bright golden sun setting below dark post-thunder clouds, bathing us and the mountainsides in a […]
