Holiday Pictures

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!   


Maya Turns Two

Last week I met up with Maya to celebrate her 2nd birthday!   The last time I saw this little one was last Spring.  She has grown SO much since then!  She’s a busy toddler now who’s on the move and loves to talk. 

Capturing the growth of children is one of the most rewarding parts of my job!  And Maya is no exception.  She was such a little trooper!  She had a blast playing in the snow and really enjoyed parading around with her new umbrella from Gymboree!  Maya’s mom and dad did a fabulous job of producing some smiles for me, and even joined in for some family photos at the end of the shoot. 

Happy Birthday to one of the cutest little girls I know!

   


5 Days and Counting…

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just 5 days away!  Last week, the Clay Family learned that it’s never too late for a Holiday Mini Session.  We met up at Tischer Creek to capture some portraits for their 2010 holiday cards.  Buddy the dog joined in and created some wonderful candid moments!  Thanks for contacting me, Christy!  It was such a pleasure meeting you and your family!
