Sneak Peek - Boise Baby Photographer

This little cutie made me smile - she likes Elvis! She laughed when she heard Elvis music..and when I put a bear on my head.

This pose cracked me up


and of course, we had to be a bunny!


I love closeups


and this face was so funny - I have no idea what made her make that face, other than my whackiness.

Thanks for coming in - it was great meeting you!

Shade Photography---Boise Family Photographer

Hello! My name is Shane and I am a family photographer based in Boise,Idaho. Love of family and photography makes Shady Lane Studios my dream job. Capturing those candid moments that families cherish for a lifetime is what drives me. My wonderful wife Tammy and sons Caleb and Jacob are my inspiration.

Outside of photography I enjoy all outdoor activities. I love calling Idaho my home and think we are blessed to have a state full of such natural wonder and good people. Reading is something I really enjoy...especially good history. Strategy gaming and watching the NFL are a couple of my interests.

I can be reached at my website
Working with Lauren is a pleasure! She has great talent and a unique vision
