Early Summer Maternity Photoshoot

If you want to see what young love looks like after almost 10 years of being together, this is it. I photographed their engagement shoot, their wedding, and, on their one-year wedding anniversary, we had fun with a maternity photoshoot at Military Reserve in Boise. Each time I love seeing how they look at each other and each photoshoot has been more special than the last.

Quite a few months back, the wonderful couple/photography super-team Dylan and Sara of Dylan & Sara Photography put on a lovely workshop at The Arcade here in Boise, ID. The workshop was **very good**, and I definitely learned a few things that I have continued to apply ever since. They are great teachers with lots of insight, and I’d recommend going to a workshop from them, or hitting them up for a mentor session if you have the chance.

At the end of the workshop, when the sun was setting, we went up by Table Rock and snapped a few images of models who were there for the workshop. Caitlin was one of the models. She is so stunning, the light was perfect, and the location was amazing. I ended up snapping a few images that I was really proud of, and wanted to share. Better late than never, right?

Thanks again for the workshop, Dylan and Sara, and thanks for being an amazing model, Caitlin!

McCormick Home Ranch

Erica and Robbie’s wedding at McCormick Home Ranch in Camarillo, California was nothing less than perfect. I happened to have met them a couple of years ago when they first began dating, and was over the moon when they asked me to come to California to photograph their wedding a little over a year later. The weather was perfect (I mean, it is California!) and everyone was kind and sweet. But, to truly sum up the wedding, Erica said it best when she said that the wedding was “a perfect mix of laughter and tears.”

Taylor and I have been friends for many years, and the moment I met Beth I knew she was awesome. Seeing them together is so beautiful. They fit together like puzzle pieces, and I am so happy for them. They’ve been married for about three months now, but I had to share these images because they are THE CUTEST EVER. Maybe I’m biased, but I had a lot of warm fuzzies editing these pics of these two cutie pies. Their session was a dream because they were just laughing and holding each other the entire time – so in love. My favorite.

Love you two!

Emily and Jason are two of my very closest friends. To shoot their maternity session was something very special.

It’s mind blowing that little Charlotte will be here any week now. I cannot wait to meet her, but I know, of course, that even my excited anticipation is silly compared to Emily and Jason’s. The funny thing is, they were prepared to wait months, years, but Charlotte was ready to come into this world as soon as they were ready to have her. Perhaps she is just as excited.

The light at Swan Falls was a dream, and the location itself is gorgeous. We photographed and laughed and marveled at the beauty around us, but, eventually, the world grew quiet, and it was just the three of them and I felt like an outsider looking in on something personal and special.

Emily, Jason – I love you two so much. And Charlotte, you are so lucky to have such wonderful parents. I can’t wait for you to meet them.
