Amanda Allard Photography 2011 Rewind

I know it’s almost March, but it’s never too late for a little love.  A big beautiful thank you to my amazing 2011 clients!  I traveled through 5 states to snap this year’s round up…and enjoyed every minute capturing these wonderful moments.


Class of 2012: Gabe

Next up, another pre-vaction session!  I met up with Gabe, a senior from Capital High, the evening before we flew out to California.  To say that his session was memorable is an understatement!  We started Gabe’s shoot at the Idaho State Capitol building in downtown Boise.  Gabe volunteered as a campaign intern for Governor Otter…so the Capitol building is a place near and dear to him.  Just as we were setting up to start the shoot, we heard a large protest rounding the corner.  It ended up being the first Occupy Wall Street rally in Boise.  Despite the noise and chaos, Gabe did a great job of staying focused on the shoot.  After snapping our shots at the Capitol, we headed Downtown to capture a few urban-themed shots.  We wrapped up the evening at Kathryn Albertson Park where we actually saw a red fox hunting right by the park’s entrance.  You don’t see that every day!  Gabe, you were beyond wonderful to work with!  I look forward to sharing more of your pics with you in the near future.   


Class of 2012: Bailey

We’ve got spirit, yes we do!  We’ve got spirit, how about you?  Does anyone else remember the cheers from their high school football games?  After meeting up with Bailey, a senior cheerleader from Capitol High, last week…I got to thinking about how much I used to enjoy screaming my lungs out on chilly Friday nights.  Speaking of which…Bailey officially wins my Senior Trooper award for braving a particularly cold and dreary session.  However, thanks to the cloud cover, the lighting was absolutely amazing.  We started off Bailey’s session in Kathryn Albertson Park, where some of the Fall colors are just starting to emerge.  Then, we headed down to Hyde Park to capture a few urban/retro inspired shots right along the historic district’s main drag.  Towards the end of the shoot, a couple of Bailey’s friends joined us for some girlfriend shots.  (Made me miss my besties!)  Bailey, you were so fantastic to work with!  Thank you for putting up with the wind and cold…and all of my crazy antics.  I’d also like to thank Bailey’s mom, Chris, for helping out with the shoot.  (Due to rescheduling, my fabulous assistants were unavailable.)  I can’t wait to get started on the rest of your pics!


Class of 2012: Reid

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of meeting up with Reid, a stunning senior from Capitol High School.  When we spoke prior to her session, Reid mentioned that she really wanted some photos with her two Yellow Labs, Jackson & Zoe.  So we kicked off the shoot down by the Boise River with her two favorite goofballs.  Reid loves hanging out down by the water, so it was the perfect place to get things started.  Reid is also a country girl at heart.  She absolutely loves wide open spaces and old barns!  So, it seemed fitting that we capture her in her boots and cowboy hat in front of one of Eagle’s finest.   We ended Reid’s session at Wood River Cellars.  Despite a few clouds, we were able to capture some beautiful shots in the vineyard.  Reid, you were so fantastic to work with!   I know you’ll accomplish whatever you set out to do in life…whether it be that 4.0+ GPA…or Med School.  Enjoy your senior year!
