The Chain Lakes, Idaho

Definitely one of my most favorite places in all the world – the Chain Lakes. This series of lakes is rich with wildlife and killer scenery! We took my dad and stepmom here for a weekend of camping and boating last week, and aside from the poison oak, it was one stunning trip! If you…

The Driggars

My favorite little second cousins spent some time with me at the Sandpoint, Idaho beach the other day. As cold as it was, they all plunged in with reckless abandon! Glad I had my camera to catch these sunny, summer moments of their childhood.  

Tom and Jan’s Wedding

This beautiful backyard wedding took place this summer in the mountains of North Idaho. Although simple and small, it was absolutely overflowing with deep and precious love between these two precious people. I haven’t shot many weddings, but I was blessed to be present for this one!

The Palouse

Hands down one of my most favorite drives in all the world.

Baby Hope

Sweet, little six pound baby Hope Palmer made her entrance into the world a little over a week ago! Renee and Cody, some of my dearest friends, are elated to welcome this precious lady into their home. Among many other distinctives, she has the longest fingers of any baby I have ever seen! Harper, her…

The Birdsall Family

It is always a joy to take photos with Nate, Bri and Carter! A year ago we did family photos together, and now with a baby on the way, they needed some new ones that included her adorable bump! We are so excited to meet their sweet little girl this fall!

The Reed Kiddos

Grandma Raylene is one of my mother in-law’s closest friends and she is downright obsessed with her four, beautiful grandkiddos! Can you blame her? She did such a good job getting them all dressed up in nautical themes for our photoshoot in downtown CDA a few weeks ago. Such a precious little family with a…

The Benoit Family

The Benoits have recently become some very precious friends to my husband and I. They  had all their family in town for a lake weekend in Harrison, Idaho, where we shot some pictures of their whole clan. I especially love the grandparents! This was certainly a family of big personalities and lots of laughter!

The Dirks Family

Driving out to this location was quite a feat, but it was so worth it! This incredible family, who serve as medical missionaries yearly in Honduras, were gathering together with the many generations of their family for a “shooting party,” which, if you’re not from North Idaho, basically entails food, fun, and firearms! Michelle, the…

Thompson Family Photos

I would say I am not biased about how beautiful this family is, but it is my family, so it would just not be true! As subjective as my opinion is, I just love this family so much! We had a reunion in Sandpoint Idaho a few weeks ago, and as I am redoing my…

Palmer Maternity Shoot

You don’t have to convince me to take pictures of Harper and her adorable parents! I have the pleasure of being Harper’s auntie and a good friend of Renee and Cody. I know I have said this before, but this may be my favorite shoot I have ever done! I may be slightly obsessed with…

Alsager and Leas Family

As a parting gift for my grandparents as we prepare to move to London, I am re-doing their family photo wall at their house! Here are a few of some of my cousins and their families!
