The Busacker’s: 50 Years Later

What a beautiful couple Bill and Brenda were, and I know that if I hadn’t titled this blog post the way I did, you would have never guessed these two were in their 70’s! They look amazing! I drove out to the countryside of Nampa for this session, to the 5-acre home of Bill and […]

How cute is that?!?! I love that you’ll make it to 50, we’ll make it to 50 and hopefully our kids make it that far too. How special to find a love that lasts.

Oh, and their backyard is KILLER.

Oh, this family is one of my all time favorites, and you capture their adorableness so well! Love all the couple pics between the two love birds and the ones of Carter on the bridge…be still my heart. Could that hair be any more curly and perfect??? They all sure well blue well. I think she’ll have a say in my next wardrobe choice!

Little Lila Sunshine

I was excited to get the chance to photograph Lila, a newly turned three year old, but having never met her or her mom didn’t know what to expect. She was a little ray of sunshine in her sparkly new sunshine dress with a giggle at everything I said. I’m not sure I ever hear but […]
