The Archambo’s

Here’s another awesome family with an adorable little one and what a great time I had with Justin, Shari, and 11 month old Ruby — yes, named after a beloved family member. We were constantly moving to keep me warm (they were obviously much tougher than I) and to take in as many beautiful backgrounds as possible. […]

Those two need to have eight more children. ADORABLE.

The Owsley Family

Meet Dean, Mindy, and Grace, another fun family I had the joy of photographing on a beautiful Boise day. Grace, being almost three, was so cute and proper and definitely loved — thus the shirt pronouncing it 🙂 — and can you believe we found flowers to match her outfit in this first picture! And […]

Great pics of the Owsleys!! What a beautiful family!

The Reed Family

I have two great jobs … one as a part time photographer of families and high school seniors, and one as a part time receptionist at Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley, LLP where I meet some of the nicest people on the planet. Sarah, as others before her, is one of those people. She’s an […]

[…] of the kindest women you’d have the pleasure of meeting. Her and Greg were last on my blog two years ago when they just had Ellie, but they are now blessed with Oliver who turns one in December as Ellie […]

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.

Cassi - November 1, 2014 - 9:55 AM

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!

Rob - October 26, 2014 - 8:05 PM

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. To update you, there is Patriarch and Matriarch, Ron and Bev; Patriarch and Matriarch Jr., Matt and Andrea; and the underlings, Madelyn who is 10 and in 5th grade, Brennan, 8 and in second grade, and Autumn, 6 and in […]

Beautiful family–terrific pictures.

The Johnstone’s

I photographed Nick and Olivia two years ago, and now they’re back with a new little baby in tow! Small world that it is, this family moved into the neighborhood I now live in — just around the block practically — so we stayed close to home for this session. Claire is now 6, and little […]

Oh Mary what a darling family. The girls are beautiful and Emmett is such a cutey. Really makes me want to hold him. Lovely family. Hope they will keep coming back for you to photograph them. Fun to watch families grow and change.

Megan - October 14, 2014 - 2:22 PM

First off, I think I’ll just go knock on their door and borrow their wardrobes for my session. Secondly, I’ll take one order of the Emmett special. ♥♥♥

The Lee Family

We are moving into our new house this week (Yay! We’re so excited — thanks Tresidio Homes!), so this will be my last post and photo session until September. Because of that I am going all out and making this a BIG one! Sharon booked a longer session than normal and we did all kinds of combinations, […]
