Rejoice with your family ~ Boise Family Photographer

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life!  ~ Albert Einstein

I love all my sessions. I really do. Each one is so different. Each family shares something with me that makes me a better photographer as well as a better person. However, I knew as soon as I start shooting this session, there was going to be something special about it. Everything just clicked. I think part of it was mom and I spent time beforehand on the phone visiting about clothing choices, the style of their family session and about the location.

I offer complimentary pre-session consultations to clients and it has been such a great experience. I learn more about the clients wants, needs and likes/dislikes about photographs they've had in the past. They get to ask all their questions and learn more about me and my style. These are really vital to new clients as there is so much more time and resource investment for both photographer and client when you're working with a custom lifestyle photographer. I want my clients to come prepared, be relaxed and ready to have fun. Because we always have fun!

Mom did an awesome job choosing clothing that coordinated together, but wasn't all matchy-matchy. The location was spot on as well. We knew they were looking for some wall art pieces from this session, but also wanted to capture candid moments with each other and their sweet little boy. He just turned two and is full of wonder about everything. We were able to capture all of that in this session.

Mom cried when she saw the last one of her little boy with his hands behind his back. Not that I want to see my clients crying, but I knew that I had created an image that evoked a lot of emotion for her. She told me after her gallery viewing that he's done that since he started walking. They've tried to take pictures of it, but never got it just right. I was able to do that. Some day Little H will be all grown up, but when his mom looks back at that image, she'll remember that little boy. That's why I do this. I want to capture those memories-those little things-for the families I photograph so they can remember them forever.

I absolutely love this one. I kept coming back to it. It was as if I wasn't even there and was just catching a close-up glimpse of a family moment that happens with them every day.

Thank you H family for letting me capture these families memories for you. And for letting me see your little guy grow up through the lens of my camera!

If this post receives 10 or more comments, I will gift a complimentary 5X7 to the family.
