Model Head Shots / {Boise Portrait Photographer}

This young lady is an incredibly sweet and ambitious 12 year old.  She aspires to be a model and is hoping her dream will come true in the very near future.  
She came to me a few days ago in need of a new “snapshot” to hand out at her upcoming modeling interview.  Since, it’s January and cold outside we arranged to meet each other in the portrait studio to capture some classic head shots.  With the help of her mom we chose a few images which we feel will turn the judges heads.
Good Luck!  I know you’ll Knock em’ Dead! 

Rittenger Family / {Boise Portrait Photographer}

It’s not often that a session I shoot is previewed as a “sneak peek” on this blog.  This family is the rare exception.  I actually photographed this family a few days after Thanksgiving.  They had gathered together for an 80th Birthday party and decided it was time to have an updated portrait taken of the clan.
Although this family has already seen and ordered their photos I thought it might be time to reveal the Rittenger Family portrait session to everyone else.  
Thanks Rittenger family!  I enjoyed catching up and I’m glad I could capture your family portrait on such a special day.

The makings of my bridal show booth / {Boise Wedding Photographer}

The past four years I have participated in the biggest wedding show in the Treasure Valley …. The Wedding Party Show.  A little over a 100 vendors come together to offer couples a one stop shop for all of their wedding needs.

In past years I’ve shown photos of my completed space but this year I thought it might be fun to show you what really goes into the production of getting ready for the show.

My husband and I walk into a space like this.  
I’m given a 10′ x 10′ space to work with and just a few tables.
Once we’ve found my specific space, our first order of business is to unload the truck.    Everything is thrown into a pile in the center of the space.
STEP 1 & 2.
Get the rug down & the walls up.
Alright … now it’s starting to look like something respectable.

 Finally, I space I can call my own!
I really enjoyed talking to all the brides, grooms, and their friends and family this year. Many beautiful couples are about to embark on a wonderful journey. I hope I can help document those early blissful moments for your children and grandchildren to view in the years to come.
