Event Photographer | Festival Of Trees 2019

Leap Photography is proud to have been an official event photographer for the 2019, Boise Festival Of Trees! This was the 36th year St. Alphonsus hosted this charitable event. Over the years the festival has raised more than $10 million dollars to improve healthcare in the Treasure Valley.

Our photographer, Brenda Leap spent a little time behind the scenes of the annual fashion show. This year, Brenda photographed Santa, volunteers and the fashion show models.

We thought we’d share a little of our holiday fun with you. Here are just a few of Brenda’s favorite photos from backstage of the fashion show.

OH… and don’t forget, if you’re in need of an event photographer, give Leap Photography a call. We photograph events of all sizes.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Community Baby Shower | Boise Photographer

It was an honor to be the Boise Photographer asked to capture photos for promotion of great non-profit event… Community Baby Shower. In June I had the pleasure of volunteering my photography skills to this non-profit. The photographs I created were used in print, web and TV promotions to help raise awareness about the item drive.

What Is The “Community Baby Shower”?

This community-wide event was designed to collect much needed baby supplies to help at-risk mothers give their babies a healthy start. Donation bins are located in various business locations throughout the Treasure Valley. Items such as diapers, wipes and formula can be left in any one of the donation bins. I know these basic baby items may not seem like much of a donation to some of us… but these donations mean the world to the mother’s on the receiving end. These families are not only struggling to make ends meet, they’re often overwhelmed with the new baby in their life.

How Leap Photography Was Involved

I’ve donated items to the donation bins in the past for this event, so when I was approached about helping create images for marketing purposes my answer was YES!

I met up with a few team members from KIVI TV to brainstorm ideas for the photo shoot. After a lengthly discussion, we decided to photograph one of the families who had recently been a “Community Baby Shower” recipient.

The Photo Shoot

The family and the KIVI TV crew met me in the photo studio to capture the images. I total we 10 people running around my tiny studio. Although it was a little chaotic, and somewhat crowded at times, it was so much fun to photograph.

These little ones brought so much energy and excitement to the photo shoot. They were excited to photographed and to be a part of this promotional campaign. Honestly, It’s not often I have little ones who are so excited and ready for a photo session. These kids felt like starts and it shines through in their smiles.

All in all I feel we captured some great promotional shots! This post highlights just a few of my favorites from the day. There were so many good ones that it was honestly hard to narrow down to these images.

So… if you’re looking for a non-profit to donate your time or money to… Consider Community Baby Shower. It not only helps educate the mothers and provide much needed baby supplies, it also helps the mother’s set up a healthy environment for the children.
