This is one of my favorite families at one of my favorite new locations in Boise. The leaves are changing and we still have just a few days left to be able to shoot these pics outside. Love this time of year!
Underhill Garden is a very special place where you can have weddings, parties, or any sort of event. It's the perfect distance from downtown just sitting right on 55 in Eagle.
I can't wait to shoot more events there.
Mommy and me sessions are fun, but this might be the most fun I've had in a while. 1 year old Gigi and her mommy Lauren were awesome. We had to cut the session short due to weather, but I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of good pics we got regardless. And the clouds... well, spectacular. They look photoshopped in some of the pics, but they aren't! Just got lucky. :)

Stella came to the studio and did nothing but WOW me.
It's been a long time now since I was pregnant, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. Back when I was pregnant, I was so sick the whole time I barely felt like putting shoes on. The idea of having my picture taken, or even taking some of myself, was one of the last things I wanted to do. However, after my son was born and I went to look back on my time being pregnant, I could only find one cell phone photo of myself. I don't know what my skin or hair looked like. I don't know how far my belly stuck out past my boobs. I remember what it felt like, as if it were yesterday, but I don't have anything to look at. If you know me, you know that is pretty devastating at this point. That's one thing that got me into photography. I love having an accurate visual of all my memories. Eventually, things fade away, and that's very sad. Anyhow, I was explaining this to Alex (pictured below) about how I regret not having some photos taken. If I were to turn back the clock, I would definitely force myself to do more photos, even if it was just more cell phone pics or documentation. The pregnancy glow is real. Pregnant women are so beautiful. Alex has the glow and was an absolute joy to shoot. She may not have felt up to this at first, but I think she will look back and be very glad she did it. Thank you Alex for allowing me to document your glow. <3
