Cambree Turns 6! | Boise Children Photographer

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you may remember Cambree.  I’ve done birthday portraits for her for a few years. Here she’s  four. And here she’s the big 0-5.

This year she’s SIX and she has a new baby brother (we snuck in a few shots of Andrew in his stroller).

Cambree has always come to her birthday photo sessions equipped with plenty of poses, expressions and nutty ideas. This year we got a little more theatrical as we wandered around the greenbelt and the Boise State campus. I suggest keeping your eye out for the impromptu mourning session at what looked like a gravestone and for the run-in with the bronco statute.

Hard to believe the years have gone by so quickly…

The Anderson Fam at the Laundromat! | Boise Family Photographer

This family is incredibly fun to photograph! Get ready to meet AJ, Andrea, K’Bree and Taylor.

One thing I love to do is split sessions up. Spend about an hour in the morning at one location. Then break. Then reconvene with different hairstyles, different outfits, and a rad attitude (the break makes everyone a little less burned out!) in the evening for the second half of the session.

With the Andersons, we spent the morning part of our session at the 12th Street Laundromat (near Hyde Park). Here’s a quick sneak peek of some of the fun we had.

In another blog post I will share part two of our session, where we invaded The Shabby House later that evening…

Cycling Time Trials | Boise Photographer

On a toasty August evening I watched cyclist after cyclist fly past me as they launched into their Thursday Night Time Trial out in South Boise. These cyclists get together to track their times and training progress by going all out on a 10 mile loop that starts at the corner of Cloverdale and Ten Mile. I don’t know all the details of their efforts, but Sarah does.

The Taphouse | Boise Photographer

Nick and I met for lunch a couple of weeks ago at the Taphouse and ordered a couple of dishes. Since we were on a lunch break we stayed away from the taps (so responsible!). While sitting on the patio getting some quality people watching in, I witnessed one of my most memorable Boise people-watching moments. Around noon a good looking, fit guy (in young twenties?) got off the bus wearing NOTHING but a thong, shoes and a messenger bag. As he strutted down the sidewalk, people tried to sneak cell phone pics of him. It was an amazing moment. As for the food, our review was split.

Thumbs down: the pulled pork sandwich. Just like Josh mentions in his article, it was soggy and fell apart.

Thumbs up: the bacon and pear bruschetta. Fun flavors paired together with nothing being too overpowering. The bread was crisp but not hard, which is always a bruschetta deal breaker for me. I’d order it again.
