The Rauenhorst Family

Micky works in the same department with the mom’s of Matthew and Dylan — both 2016 seniors that I got to photograph recently — so needless to say I was thrilled when she called to say she wanted some images of their family taken. (A big shout out thank you to Linda, Jen, and Melissa!) Micky even suggested this location so […]

Barns, fences — apart from nature itself, I think wood makes the best background. You use it really well here.

Fairly Candid - July 6, 2016 - 7:28 AM

I so agree Vince. Barn wood is my favorite for sure. They tore my last barn down without even telling me! I could have made a backdrop out of it. What were they thinking?

Father’s Day Family

Big sisters Gail and Ella came to Boise from LA and the Seattle area to visit little brother Greg over the past week. I’d like to introduce you to the whole gang –13 in all. Gail has been married to Ivan for 36 years and Ella has been married to Dan for 46 years. They have […]

That is such a good site for pictures.

Addi is Four

You want a good laugh? Go on a photo shoot with a four-year old. Addi is all personality and she doesn’t stop moving and doesn’t stop talking. From the moment she hit the pavement she was a joy box. Miss Mary, you can’t call me three any more cause now I’m FOUR! Oh look, water … […]

Thank you Mary! We love them! Great to see you again and fabulous work as always!

Fairly Candid - June 20, 2016 - 4:18 PM

Thank you Kari. I find myself looking at these over and over. This little girl of yours just cracks me up. So sweet and funny. Congratulations on the new baby and let me know when she arrives. Mary

Oh, she’s a doll! How on earth is that sweet mama supposed to choose which one to put on her wall?!?

Vince - June 25, 2016 - 1:26 PM

These are very nice.

[…] her big sister, Addi — a new four-year-old that I recently photographed (you can see her here) — couldn’t be more proud of her “Sylv.” She met me at the door in her […]

From Baby to Boy – Cole at 1 Year

Cole was born May 17, 2015 and now he is one … I can hardly believe it. He weighed 8.11 lbs then and weighs 24 lbs now and he’s 31.5″ tall which is at 96% — so like his dad and sisters before him, he’ll going to be tall! He has 8 teeth (and since these […]

You’re so sweet, Mom. You always write the nicest, most complimentary things about your little people, and not so little people. Thank you for that.

And oh, this boy of mine already one…sniff sniff. I love how you captured his “I’m gonna getcha” face! I LOVE the one of him looking down with the fabric banner and the one where he’s got a pouty lip eating watermelon.

You work wonders with that lens, lady! Thank you and I love you!

What cute pictures, Mary, they really seem to catch his sweet little personality. He is adorable!

Vince - June 9, 2016 - 3:30 PM

That is one happy little camper. (You threw the ducks in just for me, admit it.)

Fairly Candid - June 9, 2016 - 4:42 PM

I totally admit throwing the cardboard ducks in for you Vince, duh.

Mary - June 9, 2016 - 7:09 PM

Once again you knocked out of the ball park. He is so adorable. But so is Simone about to eat that watermelon .
Aren’t grand babies the best thing ever!?

Cody - June 13, 2016 - 1:45 PM

How beautiful Mary!!!

Fairly Candid - June 13, 2016 - 9:21 PM

It’s always fun to get to photograph the grandkids like a client session even though I love candids of them. Thank you Mary K and Cody for the nice comments. I love sharing my g-babes with everyone. 🙂 Mary

Aubrey Archuleta - June 21, 2016 - 10:06 AM

What a doll. The perfect age to bottle up all that sweetness and curiosity. Of course he want to “surf” on that wagon. BOYS! Love it.

Fairly Candid - June 24, 2016 - 1:59 PM

Hi Aubrey, thanks for leaving your comment. It’s always the best hearing from you girl! Mary

[…] you didn’t catch Cole’s ONE YEAR photo session you can see it here. He is a momma’s boy right now, but Sydney is a close second when she isn’t around. […]

Rob - August 3, 2016 - 11:40 AM

Great job Mary! I finally got around to looking… only a couple months late. :o) Thank you for capturing all those wonderful moments!

Daniel Judson

I have shared this many times before — both on my blog and in person — that one of my favorite things about photography is getting to know more about the person on the other end of my camera. Many families have become very dear to me through this process. This family … Craig, Lori, their 5-1/2 year old […]

Oh, Lori and Craig, he is beautiful. I can’t wait to meet this precious little boy. I can envision that this child will bring untold joy to all who meet him.

Lori - June 6, 2016 - 10:21 AM

Mary, these are completely stunning! We love them, and we love you so much! Your work is absolute perfection!! Linda, thank you so much for your sweet words! We love you too!

Vince - June 6, 2016 - 12:30 PM

❤️❤️❤️ these!

Barbara Severns - June 6, 2016 - 7:34 PM

Mary, Again, you captured my grandchildren beautifully! How I appreciate you, your love for my family, your expert skills in bringing the beauty and capturing everyone at the exact moment when they are themselves! I love these pictures, thank you once again! You have provided more memories for me than I can ever count. Love you tons …

Kari - June 6, 2016 - 8:12 PM

Love these and love this family!

Fairly Candid - June 6, 2016 - 8:14 PM

Thank you everyone for the kind loving comments to each other. They lifted me for sure and little Daniel will be the ultimate benefactor. 🙂 Mary

Liz Grissom - June 6, 2016 - 8:34 PM

He is so beautiful! Congratulations Craig, Lori, & Ella!

Megan - June 6, 2016 - 9:04 PM

Oh my, you hit the cuteness jackpot. He is sweet as all get out. Ella looks like she is already an amazing big sis. Congratulations!

Kathy Martin - June 10, 2016 - 12:06 PM

This blog was just forwarded to me by a church friend and I’m so grateful as these pictures are fantastic! Of course the photographer had some pretty amazing subjects to work with. I feel blessed to live across the street from this family and it is apparent to me that God has been paving the way for this special and precious little boy for a long time. I can’t imagine a more perfect big sister than Ella, better parents than Lori and Craig, or a more involved grandmother than Barb. Daniel will always be one loved little guy!!!

Fairly Candid - June 15, 2016 - 11:49 AM

Kathy, I couldn’t agree with your comment more. There is no luck involved when it comes to matters such as this. God always has a thought out plan. I’m so glad you stumbled across my website and thank you for sharing. Mary

Aubrey Archuleta - June 21, 2016 - 10:06 AM

What a joy! He is beautiful! Congratulations Lori!
