Boise Family Photographs

Boise Family Photographer | Hulls Gulch

I had a blast with the L family, exploring the Hulls Gulch Foothills area on a beautiful Saturday morning in Boise. This is such a sweet family and it was so much fun to capture the joy and connection that they have with each other. The photos of Weston (the little boy) with the stick are some of my favorite photos ever, I think they really capture the joy of little boys with sticks (and whacking people with sticks :))

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, this is the shoot that I rode the lime scooter home (over 7 miles, 70 minutes) from with all of my gear, which was such a blast, I felt like I must’ve looked so hilarious, in nice clothes, with a huge backpack on and a cowboy hat, on a lime scooter :).

I’ve said this before, but photographing families is extremely rewarding for me. As a dad I know how much the photos of your kids mean to parents, and how quickly kids change and grow up. Every time I post a blog post and share the final gallery with parents, I’m so excited for them to see the photos of their family and kids just being themselves. I hope it helps people see the beauty in their family and relationships.

Thank you for hiring me L family and for the wonderful morning. Happy Friday, hope everyone’s weekend is great.

The weather is getting nicer in Boise and I’m so excited to get out there and start shooting some family shoots. As a dad, I’ve seen how quickly life passes with children (Pearl is 6 and Wellington is 8, YIKES!) and it means a lot to me to get to take photographs of families, to pause these moments in time so that they’ll never forget them. I love that being a family photographer can combine my journey as a dad and a photographer, and make something meaningful for the families that I work with.

This is one of my favorite family shoots in Boise, we spent a couple of hours roaming the foothills, and watching the sun finally sink below the horizon. The light was warm and beautiful and so inspiring for capturing this family and showing the beauty of each person and their relationships.

This was a special shoot for me, a merging of worlds that I much appreciated.  Stephanie and I have been friends and worked together for many years on weddings, and she's also the only person I've done a inspiration shoot with that she based on my wardrobe, Leather + Plaid.  She and her family came to Boise recently, and I photographed them in the foothills.  Moving is a weird thing, it takes a long time to arrive in a new place, I still feel like I'm arriving, and it's been over a year now.  So seeing these friends from Portland was helpful in integrating my new home with my old, and bringing my worlds together.
