Maren Busacker

This photo session was a long time coming because it was years ago that I made Siri promise me I could take Maven’s senior photos! She’s the oldest of 5 kids and from that first year, the three older girls loved having their photos taken and I loved taking them. The day was finally here […]

What a special young lady. She is so Photogenic. Non Smiling pictures are as pretty as the smiling. I hope she has a great Senior year and a Great life.

Becky - November 2, 2017 - 11:14 AM

Great pictures. You use the best locations.

Fairly Candid - November 3, 2017 - 4:37 PM

Thanks so much Tracey and Becky. It always a challenge to never repeat a location for a client over the years – good thing there are so many nice choices in this great town. 🙂 Mary

Beau Neuroth

Here’s Beau, handsome, quiet, and a bit shy with a Zac Efron smile (says me) and a serious James Dean look (says his mom). His mom, Patti, is one of the people who help keep me in shape so I can still keep up with these young people! She’s an instructor at Gold’s Gym teaching […]

Mary these are wonderful. The only problem is I think it takes more effort to not smile. He is quite handsome and looks relaxed when he smiles. He doesn’t look like a serious person. Love the areas you chose to take the shots. Great scenery and great person to work with. Parents take great pictures also.

Dakota Hunt-Split Session

Dakota is a senior at Mountain View High School and while he hasn’t quite decided what career path he’s going to take just yet, he is very interested in the software part of computers and the video game industry. I did a split session with his big sis, Sierra, a few years back so that’s […]

Mary, do you have a preference between black & white and color? All of your work is excellent, of course, but these black and white portraits are just marvelous.

Fairly Candid - October 14, 2017 - 11:50 AM

Yes and yes, I prefer black/white AND color. 🙂 Some images lend themselves better to b/w especially if there is a lot of contrast in the image such as bright lights and dark shadows or dark and light clothing, etc. I really love the timelessness of b/w. Thanks Vince. I appreciate you looking in.

Tracey - October 16, 2017 - 8:31 AM

My goodness what a handsome young Tall man. He looks so sure of himself. I hope he goes far and is happy in the choice he makes. Can’t wait to see more in the Spring.

Tracy Hildebrandt - October 17, 2017 - 9:44 PM

That is my handsome “little” nephew!!! Awesome pictures! Can’t wait to see more!!

Becca Mehl

Yay! It’s senior season. Becca started the fall off right with her energy, beauty, cute fashion sense, and athleticism. And she’s smart too wanting to go into the medical field to one day become a nurse. I got the fun of photographing her sister Rachael last fall and their mom says the two couldn’t be […]

Great shots. That’s my favorite spot for your sessions, definitely the prettiest.

John - October 4, 2017 - 8:21 AM

Love the gravity defying over the head kick!

Fairly Candid - October 9, 2017 - 4:02 PM

I know, right? Crazy impressive. Mary

Christopher [2017 Senior]

Meet Chris, a Lacrosse playing senior at Skyview High who wants to be a commercial pilot! Now that’s not something you hear every day. While on our session he teased his mom, Jami, that she might want to give him a plane for his graduation gift but her laugh pretty much gave it away that that […]

Fairly Candid - October 8, 2016 - 12:54 PM

Thank you Charly and it was so fun seeing you again and having you there to get Chris laughing! There are more images on the DVD so be sure you see those next time you are home. Best of everything in your schooling. 🙂 Mary

Jesse [2017 Senior]

It’s always an honor for me to get to photograph someone I’ve been acquainted with for a long time – in this case Jesse, a handsome young man who attends Bishop Kelly who is as nice as his smile is big. His family has been intertwined with ours over the years through First Baptist, hunting, doctoring, […]

[…] our session they went to some graduation celebrations for Jesse, Nic’s son, who you can see here. Thank you both for the fun and it was so great getting to know you better, Stephanie. Hugs to you […]

Dylan [Senior 2016]

There’s something extra special about getting to photograph high school seniors and Dylan was no exception. It’s fun to hear their plans for the future and some of the places and experiences that helped shape their life. For Dylan he grew up near the river and attended Adams Elementary so that’s one of the places […]

I never would have guessed the deer was cardboard, too!

Fairly Candid - May 27, 2016 - 10:46 AM

Oh yea, I take cardboard set ups to all my sessions Vince. (You crack me up!)

Matthew [2016 Senior]

Meet Matthew, a nice young senior from Rocky Mountain High who is thinking about continuing education in the information technology field. I certainly wish I had more computer skills in this day and age and Matthew could probably teach me a thing or two! We bounced around south Boise and he was a great sport with a […]

Welcome back! I see you haven’t lost your amazing touch. But seriously, a barn full of cigarettes?

Melissa - April 27, 2016 - 6:40 PM

Your work is absolutely amazing, Mary! I have already shared this with a number of people of work that liked your work and will be calling or emailing you. Thank you for these beautiful memories!

Fairly Candid - April 28, 2016 - 8:00 AM

Melissa, thank you so much and you are so welcome. Your son, however, gets the most credit. 🙂

Thank you as well Vince. I always enjoy your comments even when you don’t know the subjects.

Kathy G - April 28, 2016 - 7:50 PM

What a great looking guy and superlative photography. Good luck in the future to Matthew.

Jan and Gordie - April 29, 2016 - 7:55 PM

Mathew! We both love these pictures! They are awesome and you are so very handsome. Can’t believe you will be graduating soon…wonderful! Love you!!
