A Very Special Family Generation Photo {Idaho Falls, Idaho Photographer}

I L.O.V.E. this idea of a creative and different family generation type photo. My aunt wanted to have this done with her mom and her girls, so when we got together a month ago for my Grandma’s 80th birthday party, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take this photo. I wish my great-grandma was alive. . . how cool would an even more wrinkly hand have been at the bottom of the pile? I just cannot stop staring at it! Is it just me who is obsessed with this style of photography?  :)


Custom Graduation Announcements

Did you know that if you purchase a Senior Portrait Package from me you will get CUSTOM designed graduation announcements? That’s right, no templates found here! This is part of my job that I L.O.V.E. Each person is has a unique personality, and what better way to let yours shine by putting it into your graduation announcement. Oh, and I also do the same for Christmas cards, baby shower invites, baptism cards, wedding invitations, etc. etc. I think you get the idea. Contact me today if you are interested in having a card customized for your event. And yes, I will also design you something if you had your photos taken elsewhere! That’s just how I roll!:)

So here are the announcements for Olyvia-She was the first Senior I took pictures for this spring. I just love her sense of style and bright personality. . .



Congratulations Olyvia on 12 years of dedication and hard work. I hope your graduation day is special and fantastic, just like you are!:)


Jesten 2012 Senior Pictures | Idaho Falls, Idaho Photographer

Can I just say how awesome it is to live here? East Idaho is wonderful, but every time I see THIS PICTURE it just takes my breathe away- I live just around the corner from this view and get to enjoy it every day as I drive my preschooler to school. I love my life and feel so blessed, grateful and lucky to get to enjoy the beauty of the west!

Now, back to the real reason for this post: Jesten. This is THE QUIETEST boy I know! However, once you get him out of his shell, he has a great laugh, and once he gets to giggling, that twinkle in his eye just makes me smile! He is such a good kid-I know that his parents are very proud of him, as they should be. Congrats Jesten and good luck at college!


Happy Birthday Car Car

This is one loved little boy. He is full of energy, quick to pick up on things, and a fast learner. Such a smart boy. And I know his granny loves him. She had me make this photo collage to send him for his birthday. The big 5 years old. The age that is full of wonder.

I hope you had a fantastic birthday today Carson!:)


Sneak Peak: Shaylee, All Smiles and Glam {Idaho Falls, Idaho Photographer}

Shaylee is a very special girl. She showed up along with BOTH her mom and dad for her senior portraits. And her dad organized the entire event so it was pretty impressive. I could tell just from being around them that she means the world to them! They definitely let me know that she is one spoiled girl since she is the only child, and I say let them spoil you Shaylee!:)She was super lucky and got to go get some new outfits for her Senior pics. . . can’t you tell she found some way cute ones!

There are a TON of photos to go through and choose. It’s gonna be tough to just pick a few. . . but here is what I have so far.
