I’m here to capture all of the joy-filled moments

As a people-centered photographer, I’m intentionally passionate about giving all of my clients the very best experience possible and capturing tangible memories for every season of their lives. I specialize in seniors, weddings and portraits. I’m often asked what kind of photography is my favorite, and truly, it depends on the day! I’m so passionate about getting to know my clients, and my favorites are those that I build a connection with. We will become the best of friends!

01. Details + Booking

After I receive your inquiry, I will be in touch to reserve a photoshoot date! I will also email you a questionnaire that helps me best serve you in during your session and will help me make location decisions for your shoot, along with a contract and invoice to hold your reservation. All dates are at a first come, first serve basis, and all pieces are due back to reserve your spot. 

I will be in touch about 1-2 weeks before your session to set your time & meeting place. 

02. your session day!

Let’s do it! Most all sessions take place in the evening, just before sunset. Don’t worry about any modeling experience, as I will teach you everything I know about being in front of the camera, including posing, facial expressions, and hand placement. I’ll probably ask you to do all sorts of silly things like touch noses with your partner or walk slowly toward me. It might feel nerve racking prior to your session, but I promise it’ll be a blast!

03. my editing process

After your session, I will carefully work through your session’s images to find the best of the bunch, and adjust lighting to add my joyful, timeless style

I do offer some lighting adjustments and some photoshop retouches including removing minor blemishes and redness. I do not heavily retouch images, as one of the best compliments I can receive from someone is that the images that I provide to them are exactly as they remember the subject – joyful, natural and glowing. 

04. the Gallery reveal

Within 3 weeks following your session, you will receive an email with your beautifully edited online gallery with all of the images that turned out from your session. If you follow me on social media, you may see a sneak peak or two of your images too! 

This gallery allows you to view, share and download your high resolution images all within the gallery site. You can purchase a variety of prints and print products within the site, if you choose, and sharing with family & friends is made easy!

Book your

Portrait Session


I’m totally here for helping style you for pictures! Once you book with me, you will receive a guide helping you prepare for your session, including my favorite tips and tricks for making great outfit decisions.

Seniors, portraits and boudoir photography have a 3 week turn around time for most all sessions and time of the year. Weddings have a few more pictures to edit, and are often in the height of the busiest time, so they have a 6 week turnaround time. However, you will receive sneak peaks before receiving your full gallery!

I use an online gallery site to deliver your high resolution digital images. This gallery beautifully sorts, displays and shares your images, with the option of purchasing products directly from the site for an affordable price. It’s a one stop shop!

As a natural light photographer, I rely heavily on sun placement and lighting to give me these bright, glowy images that I’m well known for. For this reason, I shoot a majority of my work during the time of day referred to as “golden hour”, which starts around 2 hours before sunset. This time provides the most flattering light and Kali loves!

Rain and inclement weather are just part of the photography game, unfortunately. The phrase “no rain, no flowers” is very true, so we do need some rain days in the mix. For this reason, I schedule in rain days into my schedule, in case it does rain and I need to move your session. My goal is always to keep the session planned until right up until a couple hours before, in case the weather decides to turn out in our favor. I only want the best for my clients, so trust me that I will do what it takes to get the perfect session day for you!

YES YES YES! Most people do not pose in front of the camera for a living, and need direction for what to do – I will not leave you without! I use a unique combination of directions and pose prompting to get a variety of effortless portraits and fun candids for your gallery. I promise, it’s not as bad as it seems!

I currently serve the Lewiston and Boise Idaho markets with no travel fee, and everywhere in between! I love traveling and would love to come to you. If you would like me to come to you, just ask and I’ll send you over a customized travel charge for your location!

I have spent years perfecting a shooting style that allows me to seamlessly and beautifully alter your images to reflect my popular bright and bold style. I love it and I hope you do too! I do not deliver RAW files from any session, main reasons being that it would not be a good representation of my work and it would require a full copyright release.

Every image you receive is individually edited for colour, contrast, exposure and style. Some images occasionally require a little more finessing for temporary things like blemishes, acne and bruises, but things like heavy facial retouching, wrinkle removal or body reshaping are not included with any of my packages and are available for an additional fee.

My gallery delivery site allows you a seamless ordering process, whether you choose individual prints or greeting cards and heirloom albums. The printing system is easy to use and affordable, so your experience with me can be a one-stop-shop!
