Family Portraits: Rising Family | Boise Family Portrait Studio

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!  I hope you are spending your day surrounded by family and the ones you love.  With that in mind… I thought today would be a good day to share the Rising family portraits.

How I met the Rising family

I’ve known Dawn, the momma of this family, for a number of years now.  I believe we initially met at the Wedding Party Show. It’s a bridal show for engaged couples looking for wedding resources such as Dj’s, catering and photogrphy.  Over the years, the two of us kept running into each other at wedding industry events and weddings. A friendship was formed.  So much so that we even kept in contact when the Rising family moved to Japan for a year and a half.

When the family moved back to Idaho, Dawn decided to signup for something she’d been thinking about for some time.   The Mrs. Idaho competition.  Her girls were now older and she had the time needed to commit to the challenge. She jumped into the competition and didn’t look back.  It was her way of volunteering time to the community and meeting new like minded friends.

Family Portraits

During her year as a Mrs. Idaho contestant, Dawn came to me on two occasions to update portraits. The first time was last spring.  She came into the portrait studio to have her headshot updated (will be debuted in a later blog post).  The second time was this past summer.  She and the family met me at Scentsy Commons to have their family portrait updated.  This blog post features a few of the Rising family’s favorite photos from their portrait session.
