Sweet Little Esther

My girls are getting so big (middle school and second grade!), and while this stage is amazing, it is ever so fun to get a little newborn fix every once in a while– getting to hold, play with and photograph sweet little babies not long after they are born! Little Esther definitely is a cute one and was a joy to photograph. Thank you Kaitana and Daniel for sharing her with me for a couple of hours!

 

The Wiggins Family

Throughout the year, but especially in the summer, I do lots of portraits of extended families. It’s alway so fun to see everyone together having a great time– cousins, grandparents, grown siblings. Thanks to the Wiggins family for a fun session this summer!

Exciting new print products!

We are so excited to announce a whole new line of print products! We spent some time last winter at trade shows, scouring the industry for great new products, and have settled on some fantastic items. We think you will be excited about them! Here’s a little preview for you!

Some great new WALL ART options.

WOOD PRINTS:

Modern and rustic at the same time, our Wood Prints feature your image on a wooden surface with warm tones and natural grain. These come with the option to let the wood grain show through for a more rustic look, or with a white base (as shown below) so that the grain does not show through.

CLASSIC METAL PRINTS:

Brighten up any workspace with sleek, contemporary Metal Prints that have great depth and dimension. Images are printed directly onto high quality aluminum for a clean and lasting finish, which shows off vibrant colors in a way no other medium can. We offer metal prints in a variety of surfaces, from high gloss to low glare matte finish.

 

METAL COLLECTIONS:

Our metal collections are a more contemporary take on our ever popular canvas collections. With our Metal Collections, a group of metal prints hang together, playing off each other and allowing you to display lots of great little moments from your session. The metal prints are crisp and vibrant, and have a more contemporary feel with their clean edges.

 

FINE ART METAL PRINTS:

A more edgy take on our classic metal prints. With our Fine Art Metals, your image is printed on the face of a brushed aluminum box, for a stylish display. As with our wood prints, you can go with a clear base to let the texture of the metal show through, or with a white base (as shown below) so that the texture does not show through.

 

FRAMED TORN-EDGE PRINTS:

For a real fine art and tactile finish, check out our Framed Torn-Edge Prints. Your image is printed on beautiful fine art watercolor paper with hand-torn edges, and then framed floating in your choice of frame. We offer several different sizes and configurations of torn edge prints, which of course can all be printed in either black & white or color!

We are so excited about adding a new IMAGE BOX AND BOOK to our collection.

THE LEGACY IMAGE BOX:

The Legacy Box makes a wonderful, versatile presentation for your images. Ten 8×10 fine art prints are matted in thick 11×14 museum quality mattes, and placed inside this beautiful image box with a printed cover.  The images can be stored in the box or can be framed individually, with the option to switch out a featured one or given as gifts.

THE PRESENTATION BOOK:

Another innovative piece that we are super excited about– this book doubles as a display piece for a shelf or mantel, as it can placed on a table top or displayed standing up. Like our popular portrait albums, these albums are printed on beautiful paper with 30 pages of fun layouts to feature images from your session.

And some great new TABLE TOP & GIFT ITEMS:

We wanted to add some fun new table top options to our product line (both for your home and for gifts), and are so excited with the ones we found! Check them out!

MATTE FINISH PRINTS ON BAMBOO PANELS:

We love these beautiful, tactile pieces. Images are printed on a stunning smooth surface and permanently mounted to a solid piece of a sustainably harvested bamboo.  The distinctive pattern of the bamboo is exposed along the edge of the panel with a smooth finish. They are ready to display with a carved out keyhole on the back for easy hanging, or can be placed onto a shelf or mantel.

TABLE TOP METAL PRINTS

Our table top Metal Print come with easel backs or curved to stand on their own. They are beautiful, durable pieces that come ready to display– no need for a matte or frame!

Ashley + CJ got married at Galena!

I love that Ashley and CJ describe their relationship as ‘loyal, goofy, supportive, adventurous and committed,’ and said that they make each other laugh.

I simply adore them and had such a great time photographing their wedding. The two of them are such a joy to be around– they could not be sweeter together– their happiness was contagious, so that it seemed everyone at the wedding  thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the day. Surrounded by a wonderful group of friends and family, they were married in Senate Meadows and ate, drank and danced the night away at Galena Lodge afterwards.

Thanks to the team who helped make it all possible!

Alexis + Aaron’s beautiful Redfish Lake Wedding

 

Alexis grew up in Boise and spent much of her childhood visiting the Sawtooths. She and Aaron now live in California, but wanted an intimate wedding in a place that was special to them, and Redfish Lake was the obvious choice. They had a sweet ceremony on the beach, where they were married by Aaron’s best friend, followed by dinner in the lodge. Surrounded by all of their closest friends and family, they had the weekend that they dreamed of!

Blake + Ryan got married!

Blake and Ryan got married on the 10th anniversary of their first date. Though Ryan got harassed endlessly at the wedding for taking so long to propose, watching the two of them, you can see a deep level of friendship that only comes from so much time spent together. They wanted to have a great big fun party with all of the closest people in their lives, and after a sweet ceremony overlooking Bald Mountain, they succeeded in doing just that! Thanks to the great team of vendors that put on such a wonderful celebration– great to work with you all!

All about honey bees!

I love editorial work– the documentary photographer in me loves heading out on a shoot, not quite knowing what the day has in store for me. I love learning about something new through the eyes of my subject. So it’s always fun when one of the magazines calls with an interesting story in mind. This spring I got to do a really unique shoot for Sun Valley Magazine – honey bees! I had the rare opportunity to spend some time with Tom Harned, owner of 5B honey as he worked. It was my first time wearing a bee mask– which made it a little tricky to hold the camera to my face and get close to the bees, but it was quite an adventure!

The Wall Twins

Oh how I love a portrait session where I just get to go spend some time at a clients’ home, capturing them and their kids just hanging out, being themselves. The images are always so fun and so real. These little twins have their one year session coming up, which reminded me of our session with them a couple of months ago, so I thought I would share. Thanks Amy and Andrew for the great shoot! Can’t wait for the next one!
