You’re resilient. You’ve persevered. You’ve emerged stronger. How will you remember this time in your life?

A bunch of iPhone photos that are badly lit and blurry, getting buried on your Facebook feed? You deserve to be pampered and to feel like a total Hollywood starlet or stud! This is a high-end portrait photography session that will leave you feeling empowered, alluring and attractive.

Fair Warning: You’ll look and feel so glamorous, you’ll never want the portrait session to end!

Contemporary Portraits to be Treasured for Generations.

You might think you aren’t deserving of a portrait session. You might think you need to lose that elusive 10 lbs. or that you’re not photogenic. I’m here to assure you that the time is actually now.

Are you a couple celebrating an engagement or years of marriage? Are you a mom- or grandma-to-be? Do you have children on the cusp of adulthood and you want a photo session to memorialize this moment in time? Are you newly single and want to celebrate the next chapter of your life? Are you over 50 or under 50?

Life has key moments that will sometimes be forgotten if not for photography to be treasured for generations. Everyone deserves the chance to capture themselves in ways they didn’t think was possible. And given what life is throwing at us these days, it’s never been a better time to pamper yourself and create museum-quality wall art.

During each portrait session, you will feel totally glam no matter if you get dolled up in a sparkling or flowing gown, tuxedo or even just some nice classic jeans and an Oxford shirt. You will feel empowered, elegant and glamorous. You deserve to celebrate you at this very moment with images that are timeless, creative and soulful.

Studio portrait sessions are perfect for couples, singles, moms-to-be, seniors or just best friends throughout the Treasure Valley communities of Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Nampa, Star and Caldwell, plus spots far and near throughout Idaho and the Pacific Northwest.

Check out these other frequently asked questions to ease your mind that you are exactly at the right time and place to create a photoshoot of your choosing.

Step 1: Free Consultation

The first step in any portrait session is to book a free, no-pressure consultation. We will use that time to go over the type of portrait session that calls to you, what you hope to accomplish and how we can create the very best experience you’ve ever had in front of a camera. We can meet in my Boise photography studio, or we can chat over the phone. I’ll walk you through exactly what to expect from a portrait photography session, what prints and products I provide and what they look like, and we can figure out what kind of photography style you’d like to experience, from contemporary to Vanity Fair portraiture. The possibilities are endless.

Step 2: The Photoshoot

We’ll hold your portrait session in my Boise photography studio, conveniently located at the Lakeharbor complex off W. State Street. We’ll have on hand a variety of beverages to ensure you remain refreshed throughout. Each session lasts about two hours and includes a makeover by one of my trusted professional hair and makeup artists (for up to two people) AND a $200 voucher toward the purchase of any prints or products. If you haven’t held your consultation in the studio, you’ll also be able to see and touch some of the products that are available: from folio boxes handcrafted in Europe to large matted prints that are made using museum-quality legacy materials.

Step 3: The Photo Reveal

Approximately 2 weeks after your session, we will meet again to show you a collection of edited images from your session. You’ll be able to decide which images you would like to purchase, what size prints, what products you might want to have made. Each print comes with a high-resolution digital version.

You buy only what you love!

Who Should Get a Portrait Session?

Black and white photography evokes a simpler a time but also one that meant glamour, mystery, class. Our portrait sessions will include a set where we create high-end black and white portraits that make you feel — and look — like a Hollywood celebrity. Think jewelry with bling, black and white cocktail dresses, or even a sporty jacket and shirt. These sessions are great for any age or gender. We can use clothing from your own closet or make use of the studio’s expanding array of glamorous gowns and jewelry.

Are you ready for your closeup?

Boise portrait photography isn’t just for the ladies! If you’re a man, you’re just as deserving to get yourself in the spotlight and get in front of my camera. Celebrate a milestone, a new engagement or an athletic feat, or just yourself!

It’s never too soon to invest in yourself and create the type of contemporary portrait photography that captures you as you are and in ways you never dreamed possible. You juggle a lot: family, career, friends. You’re never too young or too old to invest in a portrait session. It’s time to pamper yourself!

Moms-to-be: Let this be your time to capture that special glow as you prepare to bring a child into this world. Before you know it, you’ll be consumed by diapers and feedings and juggling all that you do. So take this moment to pamper yourself and create memories of these months.  Maternity portraits for Boise-area moms-to-be are filled with joy!

If you’re on the cusp of adulthood — about to graduate from high school or college — a senior portrait photography session at my Boise studio or even at some of the fab outdoor spots around the Treasure Valley is the perfect way to celebrate the person you’re becoming.

Relationships can be tough. But at the end of the day, your love continues to grow and evolve. You are each other’s cheerleader through thick and thin. Our couples portrait photography sessions capture a bit of your personality and a whole lotta love.
