Lily at 18 Months

I may have set up the shots but Gramma Gloria set up the smiles! These were taken at my friend Gloria’s house where she babysits her 18 month old granddaughter, Lily. She woke up from her nap, got on her pretty dress, and let the smiles flow for Gramma. Such love between these two — […]

Your baby girl is soooooo adorable. I just find her irresistible and can’t believe how long and beautiful her hair has gotten since I last saw her. It was fun to hang out with her and see her little personality. And I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a more exact clone of someone than her of you … both beautiful. Thanks for the sweet comment. Mary

Violet, you little piece of sweetness pie you, with your rosey red lips, delicate perfect skin, and those long thin eyelashes ready to swoon your Daddy over at any second. He called you “Baby” … “it’s okay Baby … don’t cry Baby … are you all right Baby? … ahh, Baby, you’re so cute.” What […]

She is just perfect, and her eyes are beautiful! I love the one of Jp kissing her foot, and Ashleigh looks amazing. Wish I looked that good 7 days after delivery!

5 Years, 2 Boys, and the Wedding Dress Still Fits!

For most of you ladies, you¬†have probably only ever worn your wedding dress once. My always beautiful daughter-in-law,¬†Danielle,¬†came up with a plan to get to wear hers more than once while married to the same man¬†… on their anniversary every five years! They married in April¬†2008, and yes, while¬†we’re¬†a few months late, it was¬†a perfect […]

I may or may not have woken up in the middle of the night to see if these were posted yet ūüėČ Where to even start…I absolutely LOVE these pictures. I love the lighting, and how you captured how much love Matt and I still have for each other after a whirlwind 5 years, crazy dog and 2 rambunctious boys. You are one amazing photographer, and we are so blessed to have you. Now I can actually have wedding pictures I like hanging on the wall!! You said it best…Can’t wait for 2018! Love you, and thank you again!

Well if that comment didn’t make my eyes water, I don’t know what would. Happy Anniversary ‚Ķ a few months late. ūüôā

I’m tempted to put one of these up in MY house! They are beyond gorgeous!!! What an awesome job, but that job was probably made easier by the natural love that flows between them.

Love you all!

Tracey - August 13, 2013 - 7:52 AM

it shows. God Bless you all, and may the years be good to each and everyone of you!

I think she’s even more beautiful than the day she got married. That Matt’s pretty easy on the eyes, too.

LoraLee - August 15, 2013 - 12:55 PM

Oh my gosh Mary. These are the most beautiful pictures!! Those kids are both so darling, and their boys are the cutest ever! What a precious family. I am always blown away by your talent as a photographer! God bless you Honey for giving your sweet kids such a wonderful gift of pictures they will treasure forever. The 50th Anniversary book you made for Lee and me always sits on the end table. We love picking it up often to relive precious memories of past joys. Thank you, thank you for such a thoughtful gift. Love to everyone!

Kathy - August 18, 2013 - 5:54 PM

Wow! Is all I can say. Beautiful photos, beautiful subjects. Matt and Danielle you are an inspiration – here’s to another 50+ years!!!

lsj4157 - August 20, 2013 - 11:19 AM

These photos are beautiful! I see the love behind the camera as well as in front of it. I think you should start taking lots of anniversary pictures!! What a lovely idea Danielle, wish I’d thought of it 33 years ago. It will be a beautiful record of how you two grow and change over time. Stunning. (By the way, Mary, Danielle’s post brought a little moisture to my eyes too and I was already misty looking at those beautiful pictures.)

A Family of FIve

I love urban shoots! And as a bonus? … having older kids that I can place in a¬†pose and have themactually¬†stay there! Ha!:-) ¬†This was a really nice family and the kids were so fun and polite¬† at ages 11 (Olie), 10 (Blake), and 8 (Lexis) and I loved Katie’s laugh throughout the session. Her […]

Take me to the River

“Take me to the river, let me wash my sins away.” There’s a number of songs that say it, and a number of people (40+ in fact) who did it when they were baptized in the Boise River on Sunday, July 28. It’s become a yearly event for First Baptist Church where I’ve attended for […]
