Family Portraits

The Bluth Family

Eeeek…I’m behind on my posts!  I met up with the wonderful Bluth Family several weeks ago and have been so eager to share their images.  Photographing this family was such an amazing experience!  They were reuniting for a quick weekend together (some of the kids live as far away as Connecticut & Arizona)…so the session was truly meant capture a very special gathering.  Thank you for asking me to document your time together as a family, Bluths.  I truly felt privileged to capture your love for one another.


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.


Happy Holidays: The Bluth Family

Meet the Bluth family!  I met up with this wonderful family last weekend to snap a few holiday photos for them.  They were such a joy to work with!  Especially little Josh, who kept me laughing with his funny jokes and facial expressions.  I was incredibly honored to capture this family together as their oldest son, Taylor, will be departing for his 2 year mission in just a few weeks.  Something tells me that this charismatic young man will be greatly missed by his family.  (Best of luck, Taylor, as you prepare for your travels in the Philippines!)   I’m looking forward to sharing your full gallery of images with you in the next few days…


Happy Holidays: The Kirsch Family

Another familiar face from Synchronicity Counseling.  (Catching up with these beautiful ladies has been awesome!)  Kristine booked a holiday session for her family shortly after I snapped her new head shots in August.  I was so excited to meet her two little munchkins, especially after hearing about them during our first shoot.  (I mean…come on…have you ever seen such perfect cheeks?)  And I must say, for little ones, they are they did an absolutely amazing job cooperating for the camera.  Thank you so much for introducing me to your adorable family, Kristine.  I can’t wait to share more pics with you! 


Happy Holidays: The Barowsky Family

It’s November, so you know what that means?  It’s time for my annual holiday rush!  This year I kicked off my holiday season with a familiar and very pretty face.  Some of you may remember Denae from a business shoot I did last summer (with the ladies from Synchronicity Counseling).  I was absolutely thrilled when Denae contacted me in October to schedule a holiday session for her family.  We decided to meet down by the Boise River so her three adorable boys could be photographed in one of their favorite play spots.  Despite the fact that the river bank was bustling with photographers, we were able to capture some beautiful  shots of this good lookin’ family.  


Playdate: Anthony, Julie, Lauren & Lucas

Wow…is it really November?  Where has time gone?  My grad season is finally winding down, so I’m jumping feet first into family holiday portraits.  I’ve been so excited to share these pictures with you!  These adorable kids live right down the street from us!  How lucky am I?  I met their mom shortly after we moved to Idaho, when she warmly welcomed us to the neighborhood with some freshly baked zucchini bread.  She then advised me that I had the LARGEST spider she’d ever seen crawling on the front of our house!  (Seriously still gives me the Heebie Jeebies.)  Kris and I can’t wait to get to know this wonderful family better as we continue to settle into our new home and neighborhood.  And as for Anthony, Julie, Lauren & Lucas…I can’t wait to watch you cuties grow!   


Meet My Team: Ashley & Michelle

This post is long overdue!  But I have a good excuse…I promise.  I’ve been unexpectedly busy since moving my photography business to Idaho!  I’m loving the fact that I’m finally a full-time photographer.  It’s something that I’ve been dreaming about since my portrait business took off in Minnesota!  It has been so fun getting to know the Boise area and finding new places to shoot.  I have to say…living in a larger city definitely has its advantages!  Including…an awesome college (go BSU!) which has a Photography program.  I was completely overwhelmed by the response that I received last June when I placed an ad for a Photography Assistant on the campus website!  I received approximately 35 resumes…and slowly but surely narrowed down the candidates to two! Meet Ashley and Michelle…my new go-to gals.  I’m so excited to have you girls helping me out!
