tawni....... class of 2012

well you know that saying, "blondes have more fun?" i just don't know about that.....  this gal was a hoot!  her complexion is flawless - i didn't photoshop ONE blemish anywhere!  when does that ever happen to a teenager?  and her red hair really is this amazing in person...  we had SO much fun and she was game for anything and had lots of ideas.  mom was awesome too :)  thanks for such a fun and colorful shoot!

happy trails :0) summer 2011 comes to an end......

we took the opportunity to drag these four beauties around all over boise this summer!  this is my daughter and a handful of her adorable friends.  i don't know who was more pooped after the shoot, me or them??  they were great sports though and we had lots of fun!  (special thanks to the owner of the cute old yellow ford truck...  if it looks familiar to you - it's probably yours!)

grandma's visit :)

we just spent a nice long week with my mom from sunny HOT phoenix... first we took her up to gorgeous mccall to spend most of the week camping. the weather was perfect! we rode waverunners, played on the beach, ate LOTS of yummy food, played games, watched movies, went for walks - even had several deer come by to visit our little campsite.













































i just love food network...  one of my favorite shows is "cupcake wars."  have you seen that show?  you will want to make cupcakes all the time.  i've been wanting to visit our cupcake shop here for a while now so we did!  SUCH a fun, adorable little store!  it's in eagle, idaho and it's called Lily Jane Cupcakes.  here's the link.  if you live in the area you have to stop in.  YUM!  http://lillyjanescupcakes.com










another favorite pasttime of ours is the boise farmers market.  we stop at the kettle korn stand first (and buy a jumbo bag) then we try everything else we can find!  local produce, homemade pies, hot donuts w/ chocolate dipping sauce, beautiful sunflowers, toffee, fresh breads of ALL kinds, homemade rootbeer, i could go on and on.....  if you haven't been you have to go!  9:30-1:30 downtown.  take lots of cash and enjoy the fantastic local vendors!

trevor...... class of 2012

i love senior pics! trevor and his mom were great to work with.... he was a little bit on the serious side -  definately had a great "cool guy" pose.  every now and then his mom could get him to really smile though :)  back to one of my favorite locations - the boise depot.  it sure is beautiful in the summer! hope you have a fabulous senior year trevor!
