Taylor & Tricia | Family Photographer | Eagle Idaho

I truly believe some girls walk into your life that are just meant to stick around for a lifetime. I have had the honor of doing Tricias photos since she was in high school as a rodeo queen. Meridian Lions Rodeo Queen,  and Miss Rodeo Idaho.  For the 6 months she  traveled with Lauren as MRI, we got to know each other pretty well on an entirely different level  –  hanging as “friends” and you know me, the all so famous queen mom AKA  ” Lauren’s mom”   I’m sure Tricia’s momma knows this one all to well :).  I learned so quickly their families are absolutely priceless. both Tricia’s and Taylors. and I am beyond blessed to count them as a part of my clan.

I love that I got to not only do her wedding, but her first baby and family trio. It literally makes m heart melt with so much happiness.

I hope you enjoy this little peak at our early morning Sunrise shoot last Sunday. the weather was perfect and the help was even better, thanks Dee and Shirly for all the ranch and baby hands! your both rockstars.

Erin & Jake | Engaged | Boise Engagement Photographer

You may be thinking “Wow, do you  live  in some sort of  magic land, because your images have been so lush and green lately!”,  NO, but that’s just because it’s a crazy and weird summer here in Idaho, this one location was beautiful!

Erin & Jake were so easy to talk to and get to know. As soon as I introduced myself, it felt like we had known them forever! As we walked around Barber Park, I heard about their Jobs, their wedding planning, Nursing school, and some about Jakes Diesel Mechanic shop.

It’s sessions like these that make me so thankful for clients who could be our everyday friends in normal life outside of work! I am so excited for their wedding this September  at Harmony Ranch. After 5 years of shooting weddings, I have yet to photograph a wedding there, and I’m so excited to finally get a chance to! It’s a gorgeous location!

I love how dreamy these feel. Maybe it was Erin’s  stunning smile or amazing dress… maybe it was the lush green meadow in the background… or maybe it was just a great day because I get to work with such great people!! I know this, I can’t wait to see them again! Enjoy getting to know Erin and Jake via their engagement pictures!

Freya & Colton | Couer D’ Alene, ID | Family Photographer

I have always believed it’s the friends we meet along the way that help us appreciate life’ journey.  Freya is  one of those friends, she walked into our home/life several years ago when Lauren was queening and she was competing for Miss Rodeo Idaho. This girl is not only a beautiful momma, wife and incredible business owner. She has rocked all of the  challenges that life has tossed her way with grace. She loves people,  Jesus and she adores her Husband Colton! He’s one lucky man. Her children are her world, and they love their mom. Sterling is so smart and full of personality our little  Princess Verity, well I got to meet her and she was as sweet as pie… and growing up too fast already.   I know this any one who gets to meet this beautiful family will go home better for it! If only they lived closer to me, I always miss them dearly…  Good friends are hard to come by these days  so when you find them treat them right always be a blessing and go the extra mile. You will be glad you did 🙂

This is Us: The Johnson’s | Utah Photographer

As Lauren, MiKayla and I headed down the freeway  Utah bound for a fun filled weekend  with this beautiful, fun, and amazing family of mine whom I adore like crazy and absolutely would not trade for anything in the whole world!!! You might be thinking what could possibly go wrong?  Everything? Based on the look in Mikes eyes;)  or maybe it just might have went perfectly right! Well not so much, LOL.  However, let me just give you a little disclaimer. You just can’t make this stuff up in the Johnson home….  So thank you AnnMarie for going along with my crazy ideas, Mike for putting up with them and for letting me torture you.  We got through it, had a little more fun that we planned for and made some great memories. And I am sure they all Love their Auntie Kris!

Yes this is my favorite !2018-02-05_00012018-02-05_0016

Sara & Brandon | Engaged | McCall wedding photographer

As I headed up the hill to McCall the weather and roads just happen to be perfect for this weekend enagement session for Sara and Brandon! Sometimes with our crazy winter weather you just don’t know what you are going to get in the dead of winter, but we were prepared! Warm blankets, hand warmers & treats for the kids. There was only one small series of unfortunate events that took place;)   The road into the cabin was so slushy and icy we couldn’t actually get in. Hey but, it was fun trying! And I did leave early so no worries there.   The Holiday Inn it was for the night. No worries!

Sara & Brandon wanted to shoot in their favorite little town of McCall, Idaho and can I say they nailed it! I mean this girl was not feeling well at all and by the look of these photos, you wouldn’t even know it. I was so proud of them! The kids were amazing!

Here are a few of my favorites from their McCall engagement session. I can’t wait for their June wedding at Sandstone Vineyards. You won’t want to miss this one, so keep your eyes out on the blog for the rest of their story!

Jaymie is one of the funnest and brightest girls I know.  One thing is for sure this sweet thing is going places, while Disney is always on the list I think she just might have what it takes to run this place one day. I mean it is the happiest place on earth and Jaymie is always a happy! I can’t wait to see her dreams unfold as God takes her  into this next part of life’s story I just bet it has a good ending!
