Models: Carli

Posted in Models, Portraits on September 27th, 2014

Boise model Carli was so much fun to work with last October!  We hit the Boise River during peak fall foliage for a colorful and seasonal photoshoot lit solely by natural light and a giant reflector, and I love the results.  Take a look at some favorites below!

It’s never too early to start thinking ahead for senior photos!  Autumn may be the last thing on your mind right now with the beautiful late spring temperatures, but autumn is classic senior portrait season for a reason: the fall colors especially in Boise are spectacular, and it’s right on schedule for yearbook photos and graduation announcements.  Take a look at some favorites from 2013 senior Josh below!

Seniors: Noah

Sometimes you’ve just got to get off the beaten path for a photoshoot.  For avid backpacker Noah’s senior session, typical downtown Boise locations seemed too manicured, so instead we headed a little out of the heart of Boise to the Military Reserve Park.  Catching the autumn leaves in peak season was a definite plus, too!  Take a look at some favorites.

How to choose a Boise portrait location

Posted in Engagements, Families, Know-how, Portraits, Seniors on January 25th, 2013

As an on-location portrait photographer, one of the most common questions I get asked is how to pick a good portrait spot.  At the end of the day, it’s all about what sort of portraits you’re looking for–do you want a classic elegant look, a grungy hip style, a serene natural vibe?–but if you’re looking for more specific ideas, this is the blog entry for you – newly updated as of August 2015!

portrait location?

You can find a good portrait location anywhere, and I’m not just saying that!  If you look at portraits shot from the waist or neck up, you’ll realize that in most cases, you can’t even tell where the portrait was shot.  We shot the photo at left by the Boise River in Eagle, but since the focus is on the model, the background blurs into the background – it could have been anywhere.

Light is usually a far more important factor than location when it comes to getting beautiful results, so if you’re concerned about picking a location that’s just right, don’t be!  As long as you pick a good time of day for your session (usually starting a couple hours before sunset, or shortly after sunrise if you’re an early bird), a spot that will give you a few options for shade (locations out in the open with no shady areas can be difficult), and a variety of textures (brick walls, trees, bushes), you’re bound to get great photos.

Want to make sure your full-length portraits have a stunning background?  Read on for four whole pages on my favorite spots in the Treasure Valley!
