The Johnston’s

It’s hard to even know where to start with this family — they are very dear to my husband and I — and the son and daughter-in-law of dear friends as well. This is James and Cassi, parents to their beautiful 15 month old twins, Cooper and Paige who wore. me. out. Ok, I think they wore their […]

Beautiful and fun!

Oh Mary, they are such good pictures. Sorry for not being the best helper. I kind of distracted them away from the camera. With my help I’m not sure how you got so many good ones! Of course they are some of my very most favorite people on the earth–as is the amazing photographer. I sure do love this little family.

Hi Mary,

We LOVE the pictures! ALL OF THEM!
Thank you so much for taking our pictures. We do have some busy little munchkins, but you managed to capture some super AWESOME pictures!

Megan - November 1, 2014 - 2:42 PM

Oh the lips on Paige in that picture with Mama, I just want to smooch them! And Cooper has the most beautiful stare into the camera. Gorgeous kids!!!

Good job on capturing twins! It is nice to be asked by a photographer who knows her art.

The Schneider’s [Family Mini-Session]

The Schneider’s bought a raffle for photography through me a while back through a function of my daughter’s friends. Having met Matt, Christen, and Carter at Sydney’s birthday party last year, I looked forward to getting to know more about them. Matt, a police officer, had a vision to see more defense training in the State of Idaho, and […]

Love this adorable family!!! They turned out great, and honestly- Carter is going to have women LINED up. He’s the handsomest fellow I’ve ever seen.

The Gerichs

It’s always fun to get to photograph my kids and g-babes even when we do get in trouble like we did on this shoot. We went to the Scentsy Common Grounds to take in the beautiful scenery early Saturday morning. I admit to taking the girls into the dirt then saying “they probably don’t want […]

Beautiful family pics

Megan - October 26, 2014 - 3:35 PM

I love them! Love, love, love them. My favorite family one was the first one and all the ones of the girls alone and together will be hung for certain. You have an amazing ability to get everyone smiling at once. Thanks for taking time out of your busiest season for us. Love you!

Thank you Mary! Wonderful job! Love them all, but the two with Mone’s hands on her chin just entrigue me. I can’t figure out what it is, but it’s great.

Linda J. - October 27, 2014 - 9:05 AM

A beautiful, happy little family. Such sweet pictures. Love them.

Kathy G - October 27, 2014 - 11:14 AM

There was some kind of up-close-and-personal interaction with that tree! I am not surprised the vegetation police came out, but I have to say, it was worth it, I’m glad you did it. Those pictures just made my heart sing.

Hi Mary: Great news about Megan expecting in May. Corey’s birthday is May 29 and since you have grandchildren’s birthdays on both of my children’s birthday, this one needs to share Corey’s! lol

Urban Priebe’s

This is the fourth lucky year I have gotten to take snapshots of the Priebe’s.

Beautiful family–terrific pictures.

Happy Birthday Cowboy! [MJ at 5]

October 20 celebrates the 5th birthday of my oldest g-babe, MJ (Matthew Jr.). A week ago his folks and Grampa went hunting for Danielle’s first bull elk (she got a nice 6 by 5), and I got the joy of watching MJ and Jayden for 48 hours. Our time was filled with all things fun, but […]

Love the surprise shoot. I sure do have two little men and you are great at capturing moments like this

Fairly Candid - October 19, 2014 - 8:48 PM

Thank you for commenting Matt. It was a joy-filled 48 hours for me and MJ kept me laughing on this photo shoot. He’s quite the poser. Love, MOM

Danielle - October 19, 2014 - 9:23 PM

Love these so much! I sent this to my sister and she texted me saying she was crying. When I asked her why she said “because he has grown so much in the past 2 months! I miss seeing him :(” Thank you so much for watching them and taking such cute 5 year pictures.

Fairly Candid - October 19, 2014 - 9:49 PM

Oh, that blesses my heart Danielle. Thank you for sharing that. I’m sure Auntie could use a good dose of nephew hugs right now.

dad - October 19, 2014 - 9:57 PM

Great pics babe. Well it looks like MJ is ready for a horse. He sure has grown up. Good cowboys make good men.

Becky - October 20, 2014 - 8:38 AM

Great pictures. MJ has turned the corner from toddler to boy. Looks like you had a fun day.

Linda J. - October 20, 2014 - 9:09 AM

Oh my, he has the cowboy stance down pat!! Looks like those cute little boys had as much fun as you did. Good job, Gramma, especially for letting MJ take control of the camera and you didn’t even look nervous in the pictures!

Sheila Clark - October 20, 2014 - 1:39 PM

Great pics, love the cowboy outfits! Can’t wait to see our sneak peak!! 🙂

Auntie Megan - October 20, 2014 - 3:33 PM

Well done, Gramma. Well done. He’s always been a cute little man, but WOW…he’s sure turning into a handsome little devil. He’s got the no-smile down just as pat as the smile poses. Before we know it you’ll be posting his senior pics and linking to this post when he first started his Cowboy getup.

Happy Birthday, sweet Nephew!!!

Mary - October 20, 2014 - 3:59 PM

That first picture is one where MJ looks like he really does have a horse tied up at the hitching post. Great looking grand sons.

Fairly Candid - October 21, 2014 - 10:31 AM

Thanks everyone! And just so you know, it WON’T be Grampa and I buying him a horse!!!

Aubrey - October 22, 2014 - 6:58 AM

I love your work but the time spent with grandkids and that special connection makes it even better. The light and colors this time of year just add to your talent. Great pictures of the lil dudes!

Trent [2015 Senior]

If you know much about my photography you probably know I absolutely LOVE photographing high school seniors! They are so much fun and it’s exciting to hear about their school activities and what they have planned after high school. Trent did not disappoint and was just as handsome, easy to work with, and as fun as his big […]

Where was Fairly Candid when I was a senior in High School? I want a senior portrait session do over.
