Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm a natural light photographer living in the Boise, Idaho area with my husband and 5 kids. I enjoy capturing images of all kinds, but I am truly in love with photographing newborn babies. The first days of life are precious and magical and so very fleeting. Feel free to email me with any questions you may have at Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web :)

About me

I'm a 31 year old stay at home mom to 3 great kids. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Ross for almost 9 years. Since having our first child, preserving life's memories has been very important to me. I write in journals, I scrapbook and I love capturing our everyday life on video. My favorite way to preserve our memories, is to photograph them. I've always liked to take pictures. But, it's just been in the last couple of years that I've developed a love for it. I've never given too much thought to starting a photography business. However, I've had so many people over this past year ask me to take their pictures. That has prompted me to take the big plunge. I decided that the easiest way to go about it, would be to start with a blog. That way, when someone is interested in using me, they can go online and view my work to get a feel for the type of photography I do. I can also update things so easily on here. It's great! This first month, I'm going to be showing lots of examples of my work. There will be tons of posts. After that, I'll mainly be adding some favorites from my sessions. I'll be posting more processing options too. Before and afters are always fun, so look for those.

I use natural light for all my portraits. While I love the look and softness of natural light, it can be a bit restricting at times. For lighting purposes, I prefer to work outdoors whenever possible. Sadly, I don't have a studio in my home (we have no room!) Therefore, I cannot take large group shots indoors. The maximum number of people I can accommodate well indoors is usually three. Someday, hopefully soon, I'll be able to offer studio portraits and won't be so limited.

Because I have three little kiddos that keep me very busy, I only have enough extra time to schedule a few appointments a month. I wish I had time to do more, but because I take so much time editing and perfecting my photos, I just don't have enough time to take on more appointments.
