A Spooky Halloween Birthday Party | Boise Photographer

Earlier this month, K’bree turned 12. Her party was an awesome Halloween themed bash. With the disgusting cake, the haunted house and treats, spooky dress-up, a pumpkin relay and spider pinata I was definitely in the Halloween spirit by the time I left. Not to mention, I was utterly impressed with her parents’ party planning skills…

Happy Halloween!! …and belated Happy Birthday to K’bree!!

 

Hannah’s Peacock Costume | Boise Photographer

My office is the same building as Three Oaks Academy and Integrative Therapy Clinic. If you are in need of massage, this is quite possibly the very best place you could come in Boise. The therapists and students here are extremely knowledgeable and capable of helping treat a wide array of ailments. One of their focuses is on helping breast cancer patients.

Since Three Oaks is very involved with the fight against breast cancer, they sponsored a piece for Bras For A Cause. Heard of it? If not, google it!

Hannah Sterling imagined and created this intricate peacock “bra” made entirely of real peacock feathers. Not only did it turn out gorgeous as is, but the movement of the costume is beautiful as well. Using loops around the wrists and dowels, the tail feathers can sweep back or be pulled up to fan across the wearer’s shoulders. Quite simply this is an utterly impressive design, especially considering this was Hannah’s first attempt at any sort of costume of this sort. (Um….costume designing might be in her blood…)

To be sure this piece was captured in its original state (before the fashion show), we did a quick morning photo shoot.

Our model, Julie, suggested the home of her boyfriend, which had unfortunately burned down the week before. The contrast of the bright, pretty costume and the dark, ugly house worked really well for our subject of an awful disease and hope for survival.

Leave a little love for Hannah’s handywork…. And if you ever need a fabulous Halloween costume….she just might be your gal…

Bruce Green, Whole Foods | Boise Photographer

Awhile ago I had the pleasure of photographing the Whole Foods Store Team Leader for the Boise branch, Bruce Green. Below are a handful of portraits.

Looking forward to checking out the store when it opens in mid-November. You can check out info on the Boise store here. Oh — and they’re hiring…

All About Games | Boise Photographer

Downtown near the 8th Street escalator you’ll find this little shop — All About Games. Inside is a colorful array of games and puzzles galore. If you’re lucky you’ll get to meet the adorable polo-wearing shop dog.

Here’s a cool little factoid: All About Games does game rental…for CHEAP. So instead of dropping $30 on a game you’ve never played (and then having buyer’s remorse) you can just rent it and try it out for a few bucks. Pretty sweet idea.

Idaho Poster & Letterpress | Boise Photographer

Idaho Poster & Letterpress might be the coolest ‘workshop’ I’ve ever spied. These shots were taken for Boise Weekly awhile back.

I have a creative eye, but not the best control over a pen, or paintbrush, or well, most anything that isn’t a camera. However, I think I would love working with letterpress printing and design.

Planning to sign up for a class this winter. Who’s with me?
