jonnathan, heidi, and jagger’s sunday morning shoot | boise, idaho lifestyle photographer

you may have noticed a few changes in the blog lately.  i’m simplifying things. stripping away the excess fluff and trying to show you more of what really matters.

and i’d like to kick off the new, simplified blog with this post. because when you’re talking about what really matters-this is it.  family and love and being there for one another no matter what.  and can i also say that i am so in love with the fact that this entire session took place in their heidi and jonnathan’s bedroom?  i love it when a family trusts me enough to do a lifestyle session like this one.

i understand the appeal and the tendency to choose to go to a park or an outdoor space for family pictures, but i hope this session makes a few of you consider doing a lifestyle session.  you don’t need a fancy house or awesome decorations. all that doesn’t matter. what matters is capturing your family in your lives-right now.  these are the moments that you are going to want to remember for the rest of your lives.  an added bonus of lifestyle sessions? kiddos tend to feel more comfortable at home and smiles tend to come more easily and more naturally.

but enough about all that.  on to the pictures!  i hope you love them as much as i do.

oh-one more thing!  i absolutely love that this little boy’s name is jagger. and what a rock star he was! now for the pictures!

by the way, heidi is the co-owner of a super awesome company called Ira and Lucy.  check them out!

The Puente Family at the Boise Train Depot | Boise, Idaho Family Photographer

Get ready for cuteness overload.  This little guy smiled on cue.  Really. I’ve never seen a child in that age range (15 months) actually pose for the camera.  But this little guy was working it.  At least for the first 15 minutes. After that, he found better things to do 🙂

I loved this session.  Courtney and I actually lived together in teh same house in my Junior year of college.  I remember her husband John (her boyfriend at that time) coming over all the time, and I remember thinking that they were so in love and were so good together.  And I thought the same thing during this session.  They are obviously so in love with one another and in so in love with their sweet little boy, Josh.

And here are the pictures to prove it.



Moving | Boise, Idaho Photographer

We are moving for the third time in just over a month. And I am a little tired today. I keep mixing up French and English and saying things that don’t make sense to anyone except maybe Lamine.

 I know I’m behind on blogging.  And I know this is an older shot. But I love it. Because….Well, just look at him. He’s gorgeous. I love his ruddy cheeks, love the way his hand is lying on his chubby belly, and I love knowing that he’s mine to hug and kiss and love on.
