Happy Mother's Day!

Celebrating all the wonderful mother's I have been honored to photograph:

Head Shots and Personal Branding / Boise Idaho Portrait Photographer

Head shots.  Personal branding.  Presenting yourself accurately, attractively and authentically.  

Our presence in social media, advertising and in online content is ever-increasing.  Do no underestimate the value of a first impression.  It makes a difference.  Often our first contact is virtual.  What kind of image is your first impression?  A snap shot?  An outdated picture?

I am so happy to be able to create beautiful, confident, quality images for my clients to represent themselves to the world with.  It matters.  It is worth it.

Senior Portrait Glam Shoot // Boise Idaho Portrait Photographer

I could not have asked for more perfect clients for this dreamy senior shoot.  These lovely and talented twin sisters are dancers (a guaranteed way to my heart) and loved to dress up in tulle glamorous wardrobe... And could they ever pose!  

This is such a special time their lives, as a mother myself, I see this time both from their eyes -- their whole lives, full of possibilities ahead of them, and from their mother's perspective who sees the little girls who have blossomed before her eyes and are spreading their wings.  

Capturing beauty and grace during a fun senior session is not only a fun and fulfilling experience for seniors, excited to celebrate this phase of their lives, but it is also a celebration for parents --a moment to honor the adult their child has grown into and hold onto the memory and moments created in their portraits that they will treasure forever.


Christmas came early for Liz's lucky husband.  She was so excited to keep her beautiful album a complete surprise -- and it was worth the wait!  He loved it.  And best of all, she had a fun, pampering, and absolutely perfect session.  

The Glamour Boudoir Photoshoot Experience is designed to reconnect you with your feminine - and powerful side.  It is a validating moment when you see yourself in a way you never have before -- or maybe forgot existed.  It is there.  For all of us.  

I am so glad Liz did this for her husband... and for HER.  

Vintage Glam Boudoir // Abilene Texas Portrait Photographer

From the moment I first saw Tabetha, I knew she would photograph like a dream - and I told her so!  Little did I know that she is also a talented makeup artist and budding photographer!  This shoot was so much fun.  This girl knows how to move in front of the camera -- I think she should add "model" to her resume!  This was the perfect opportunity to try new angles, new lighting set ups and have her create her own interpretation of vintage glam makeup.  It all came together:

Jana / Abilene Texas Modern Glamour Boudoir Photography

When Jana was looking for a Glamor Photographer, she searched...And found me!  Horray!  She is my first client that has not been a direct referral!  Yay for internet search terms like "Glamour" "Boudoir" and "Beauty" and "Modern"... Those keywords should lead you to me!  

Jana planned this shoot as a wonderful surprise birthday gift for her man ... And a gift to herself.  Every woman deserves a day to celebrate her beauty, femininity and sexiness!  Though the process of a shoot like this is more dress up fun and laughter.... And a few sore muscles from posing... The results are always beyond her dreams.  

Tracy - Modern Glamour Professional Head Shot // Abilene, Texas Portrait Photographer

Tracy came in for ONE headshot for her website.  But with a little conversation, we both found that the glamour experience was exactly what she was looking for - - even if she only "needed" one image, the Glamour Experience is one that EVERY woman should have.  And the results:  Perfection.  She was very well prepared, had an amazing wardrobe and absolutely rocked her session.  In the end, she had more images that she loved than she ever expected -- which means, job well done on my end :)  I love surpassing my clients expectations!  Now she not only has a stunning image for her website, she also has an elegantly beautiful album that will be treasured by her young daughter - and someday, her grandchildren.  And while creating these images, she had a morning to be herself.  To celebrate the beautiful strong professional woman who loves and cares for her family.  For one day, to be the star of the show.

Beautiful Modern Head Shots: Elegant, Professional and Timeless // Abilene, Texas Portrait Photographer

There are SO many businesses out there, thriving wonderful businesses, that deserve to be represented well in an attractive, accurate and inviting way by the people who create, nurture and make their business thrive.  If you are in doubt about the image you are putting out there -- you are probably due for a modern update.  Gone are the stuffy "old" head shots of yesterday.  Breath new life into how you put yourself out there for the world to see.  It should be breathtaking:

Elizabeth: Boudoir Beauty // Texas Modern Glamour Photographer

Elizabeth planned the BEST surprise for her husband for their 5th anniversary.  She had a heck of a time keeping it a secret --- for weeks after the shoot!  Such a day of nerves, makeup, girlfriends there to support her, and absolutely breathtaking images that celebrated her sexiness and feminine beauty in a way that made her feel empowered and completely knocked the socks off her husband!

Photographing a Photographer // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

What an awesome experience to get to create a day of beauty celebrating this talented photographer, dear friend and gorgeous woman! 

I knew from the moment I met Andrea that she would be a dream to photograph - and boy was I right.  She is beautiful inside and out and seriously the most deserving of women to have a day of pampering and beauty all to herself.  She somehow manages to homeschool 4 children, run her home, and a photography business, help other photographers (me) with her mad Photoshop skills, and look sweet, refreshed and fabulous at the same time!

Glamorous Portraits // Abilene, TX Portrait Photographer

This lovely lady took the time out of her busy schedule  - which is a juggling act of work, home, mothering 3 sons, and being a wife, oh and having a social life... To do something for herself.  To celebrate, be pampered and to completely step out of her comfort zone.

She knew that she'd love these portraits.  But like all my clients, actually SEEING the gorgeous feminine side of yourself that you KNOW is in there, but rarely is captured in an amazing portrait is an experience in itself.
