here's shelby! class of 2011

back to the city! shelby is SOOOOO photogenic.... and she came prepared with a small entourage of cheerleaders/supporters. we had lots of fun capturing the awesome colors & textures of downtown boise. she loved the rustic look out at eagle island too. check out the COLORS we found there!

shelby is one of those fun, happy personalities so i LOVED her smiles and playful attitude, but i think i liked her "serious" face the best. and those EYES! gorgeous!

the mahan family

i think this session will hold the record for the most shots i've taken. i think we were over 500! (yikes) i had SO much fun at eagle island again.... i get to see lots of the mahans. they endure many smiles for me because they're our camping buddies. this year we went to yellowstone, the tetons, mccall, stanley, glenn's ferry, & last but not least c'oeur d'alene. it was really fun for me to capture some fabulous family moments on a little more of a "formal" note :)

it's really fun having a friend who looks a little like carrie underwood! (doesn't she??)

baby presley

wait til you see this baby girl! mom and dad have FOUR boys and along came PRESLEY :) mom came very prepared with lots of frills to dress her up. i was worried about not getting those sleepy baby shots since she was 2 weeks old.... but surprisingly we changed backgrounds, tutus & bows several times and she didn't even STIR!

there's something very magical about brand new babies!

the butterfield family

so everybody loves the rustic look this year! i know some of these spots will be familiar since many families have just loved eagle island this year.... but these faces are new :)

i did portraits of the butterfields a couple of years ago so i was very surprised to see how TALL all the children have grown. lots of blondes too! can you tell dad is a dentist? very nice smiles!
