Time to VOTE in the Everyday Adorable Contest! 2012 - VOTING OVER!

It's time for the Everyday Adorable Contest! Here are our Finalists!

 To vote: Scroll down and READ THE RULES - then vote via the POLL at the bottom. thank you!

 Entry #1 - Adellyn

 Adellyn is pure joy! She LOVES jumping in puddles and feeding her duck neighbors Fred and Wilma right after a storm. Nothing is more precious than seeing life through her eyes. Watching her play "mommy" to her new little brother, whom she nicknamed Baby Bacon, fills our hearts with love. Each morning and night she asks "Can I see his cute wittle eyes?" Its her way of showing love to her baby brother as she oooos and awwws over him. We love her more than words could ever express and are blessed to be her parents! adellyn

Entry #2 - Kinlee

 From the moment I found out Kinlee was growing, my life changed completely. Then, the first moment she was laid on my chest, screaming her little tiny self red, I was head over heels in love. In fact, I feel like I didn't really know what love was, until I felt this overwhelming love that came with her. To me, she has always been the most amazing baby, now as she grows, she is becoming the most amazing toddler. iIhad to make a collage to show so many of the things that make her special, and it still doesn't show it all! she adores animals, always trying to hug and kiss the cats and dogs here (thank god they are so very very tolerant!) She has the sweetest heart, wanting to hug and kiss her baby cousins and even trying to pick them up when they cry (they are already almost bigger than her!) She seems to always be smiling and laughing and dancing. I almost sent her booty shake video in for submission! I call her my "yeah" girl. "Yeah" was one of her first words and she still says it to everything. She even answers "yeah" when you ask her if she needs to go to the corner and then puts herself into it, lol! To find just one thing that makes Kinlee special would be impossible. My Kinlee monster has the sweetest, funniest, happiest most loving personality ever. :) Kinlee

 Entry #3 - Claire

 Claire is a 2 and a half and an aspiring cowgirl. She loves her horse Kruzer and he loves her. She is fearless on the back of her steed, and is always smiling and giggling when she is riding. Claire helps take great care of Kruzer, her favorite activity being doling out the horse treats! Claire credits her amazing Aunt Kim for taking the time to ride with her and introduce her to the importance of being responsible for her animals. Claire is our little cowgirl. Claire 

Entry #4 - Natalie

 This is Natalie.She is the sunshine in our days. She loves playing in the water and would take 3 baths a day if allowed. She is 2 yrs old and is curious about everything this world has to offer. We get to see the world thru her eyes. She loves water( of course), bubbles and her bestfriend lola( our cat). These are just a few of her favorite things... Natalie

Entry #5 - Jaxson

 Jaxson comes from a family that has generations of farmers..including his Daddy and his Papa. So ever since he was about 2 tractors and anything farming has become one of his many passions. He can tell you what every part of a tractor is, even when you try and trick him he knows better. We get certain farming magazines and catalogs in the mail and this is what he needs to look at while he eats his breakfast/lunch/dinner. He even has brochures of all different types of farm equipment that he likes to read as bedtime stories. I think that makes him a special little future farmer :) jaxson

Entry #6 - Madisyn

 In this photo you see Madisyn playing dress-up with her cousin Brianna. Madisyn loves to play with her cousins, as she has many of them. Madisyn is a kind, playful soul that already knows how to not take life too seriously. She is constantly acting goofy just to make people laugh and her laughter is simply contagious. She is a kind-hearted child that feels that all people need love, and she absolutely loves to pretend to be a little Mommy with her baby dolls and even her younger cousins. My little goofball is a ray of sunshine on any day you meet her. madisyn

Spring Newborn Session 2012

My absolute favorite thing to photograph is a new, fresh newborn baby and their loving family!


This is for a NEWBORN (1-2 weeks old) Session with their parents and siblings to be held at my studio in Boise, ID. Newborn sessions focus on their sweet littlness and interacting with family.

Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours in studio to complete (this time is included in your package fee)

Expect about 15-20 poses/images of your precious little one - alone, all snuggled up.
In props or "set ups" - How many depends on baby's happiness
With Mom and Dad (together and separate)
All of the family
With Siblings

If you choose NOT to have Baby photographed with parents/siblings, you will have less images to choose from. This does not change the price of your package. I suggest doing sibling poses on a different day than doing the newborn alone (no extra charge!!)

This special does not include any Maternity Portraits or Extended Family portraits. (see below for Maternity Newborn Packages)

$399 due at the time of booking. We will send you an invoice via PayPal - If it is more than 4 months til your due date you may pay 1 half at the time of booking and 1/2 when baby arrives.
