the blood family

brrrrrrrrrrr!  this was a chilly, windy day and i am constantly amazed by how happy and willing families are to tromp around in the wintery weather.  i of course can always bundle up and be ugly, but these guys have to look presentable :o) which they did - cute, cute family!

look at this cute little guy... he kinda looks like that adorable, spunky kid on the blind side!  he does huh?  anyway - downtown boise is always great and i think we got some great shots despite the weather!

the vansickel family

i just thought this was the cutest family!  everyone loves this beautiful downtown boise park....  it's always fun to take portraits of big kids.  there's usually less drama :)  and be sure to catch the cute picture of the squirrel.  it doesn't happen to be related to the vansickels but it was very interested in what i was doing!

the price family

love the fun colors and textures of the urban look :)  fall is a really fun time for me as a photographer because i get many of the same families year after year!  i've lost track but i think this is my fourth fall doing their family portraits and they are so fun to work with.  their handsome boys are growing up fast!  i love the black too.  somehow their boys stayed clean even though we were down in the dirt.

the riddoch family

CUTE WARNING........... & because of the cuteness factor i had a hard time narrowing it down.

let me first say that we all FROZE to death during this session.  this was by FAR the coldest and windiest it has been and i was amazed how well these adorable children did!  (not to mention their brave and dedicated parents??)

absolutely gorgeous mom and dad along with five very young kiddos all did fabulously and we captured some great pics in spite of the weather!  check out the way cute twins too!  i always thought it would be fun to have twins.  by the time i finished editing these portraits i think i figured out how to tell them apart!  great job all of you riddochs  :o)

the jones family

this session was fun!  these boys were SOOOOOO cute with their DOG......  i love big dogs.  people rarely do portraits with pets.  i think it adds another stress factor that sometimes families just aren't up for, but this dog was awesome and so was his family :o)

absolutely gorgeous fall season at merrill park!

the wallace family

the wallace family was new for me this year!  i love meeting new families and look at the seriously cute little person in this family........  our session was a bit lopsided but i don't think they'll mind :o)  little people are just too fun to capture in pictures - and look at her awesome curly hair!  love it!

you can't tell but it was COLD and they were all so great about it.  the colors were FABULOUS!!  sad to see the leaves fall off.  mom and dad should be proud of this great looking family.

the brown family

there sure are a lot of beautiful gals in these pics.... one guy and all these beautiful gals. he's a lucky guy ;) their gorgeous brunette mom and i go way way back to college days (20+ years) and i look forward to their family portraits every single year!  i can hardly believe their girls are so grown up.  it's hardly fair that this many big, round eyes and all these beautiful manes are all part of one family....
