Sometimes that image that you dream of capturing doesn't happen in a studio. This image was captured at a family dinner but the "moment" was so pure and perfect and thats what makes this picture beautiful. Meet my wonderful sister-in-law Alison, and her baby boy.

Troy + Jennifer ~ Engaged

It was one of those unusually sunny evenings in March, following a worrisom cloudy day, when I met up wtih Troy and Jennifer at Boise's Hyde Park--a quaint and charming "small town" neighborhood complete with striped awnings shadowing storefronts of mom and pop businesses, inviting benches, and just urbanesque enough to make it a tempting stop for anyone. This couple rocked their engagement session!

One of my favorite shots of the night!

Favorite shot...

Little Lady

Photographing girls is a completely different from photographing boys and since I've got a little boy and am surrounded by mostly nephews, I jump at the chance to photograph a girl when I am offered the opportunity. Contrasting the rough and tumble, catch-me-if-you-can photo mentality of my little boy, this young lady was all girl and on her best behavior in her favorite dress (its a gorgeous chocolate brown--you can tell she'll have stellar fashion sense when she's grown!). Her mom wanted some formal shots to capture lost last, fleeting "baby" looks before her little lady loses them forever. I hope I captured them.

I call this textured antique. Its a process I'm working on and felt worked really well for this shot. The process gives an image a deeper, more intetesting, almost old world feeling; timeless. This young lady's serious, verging on sad, expression really adds to the mood of the image. I love it!

Troy + Jennifer ~ Teaser

Gorgeous couple. Beautiful night. Awesome location. I'm in the midst of proofing Troy & Jennifer's e-session and wanted to post a teaser shot, until I get the rest of the session proofed.
