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!!


A Natural Home | Boise Photographer

A couple of weeks ago I posted some photos of a home that I deemed (keep in mind I have no qualifications to be allowed to deem it anything at all) to be “whimsical.” On that note, I suppose I would call this home natural + modern.

I love how open this home feels — very airy, but still cozy. I also love the outlet on the floor next to the couch. Brilliant!

This beautiful home was designed and built by Seidl Home Company.

Baby Stella | Boise Family Photographer

When I do blog posts of photo sessions with friends, I often have a hard time writing the intro. I think it is because I want to do justice to who I know them to be without getting too personal or rambling for too long.

So I will say this: Sean and Hannah are a great couple and great friends to have. When I heard Hannah was pregnant, I knew they would be nothing shy of great parents. When Stella was born two months early, I knew they were a couple that could handle the pressures of a premature baby much better than most.

We took Stella’s photos about a week after her due date — which actually put her at just over 2 months old. I must admit that I was blown away by Hannah’s honesty about parenting (the ups AND the downs) and by her focus on what was going on in my life (not much by comparison!), all the while keeping a watchful eye on her new tiny daughter. I can see that I’ll be taking parenting notes from her and Sean for years to come.

Congrats to Sean and Hannah and Herrley (the handsome dog at the end of the post) on the addition of lovely Stella to their family!

Treefort Music Fest….Owyhee Afterparty | Boise Photographer

Alright people. If you haven’t heard of Treefort by now then I hate to be the one to tell you this….but you’re living under a rock. It’s the best new thing to hit Boise! (Although I AM looking forward to Nordstorm Rack and Whole Foods….)

The good news is that it isn’t too late for you to partake in the joys of live music. Here is the schedule for Saturday (TODAY!) and Sunday. So get on down to the Main Stage (12th and Grove) for the first show today at 2:30. The sun is out, the music will be fantastic and the people watching won’t disappoint!

Here’s from last night’s Afterparty set at the Owyhee Hotel.

Starting with Owlright….

Next up is QP from Seattle…

Then we’ve got Sepalcure…


Last but not least, Pictureplane…
