On a stunning spring morning at sunrise, I captured this sweet family's Boise Foothills Family photos. To celebrate River turning one years old, we woke up early to drive up to Bogus Basin to capture family memories together. Lifestyle family sessions are one of my favorite types of shoots. As a Boise photographer, there are so many stunning mountains and foothills locations I love bringing families to!

I first met this amazing family at a fundraiser I hosted one year prior. I was lucky enough to document their maternity photos when sweet baby River was still hanging out with her mama in the womb. It was so special when Tori reached out to inquire about capturing her first birthday with a lifestyle family photo session in one of their favorite places. As an active Boise family, these three love adventuring in the mountains of Idaho. It was fitting to spend a morning hanging out among the blooming sunflowers with green foothills all around.

A lot of families ask me when the best time of day for capturing family photos is. In Idaho, the summer months can be so hard because sunset often isn't until hours past kids' bed times. Mornings can be easier for a lot of kids who wake up early and still have that golden sunrise look to them. I was grateful this sweet family was willing to wake up at 5:30am for sunrise. River was completely happy taking photos in the early morning. We brought blankets and simply wrapped her up when it got a little cold.

Spring might be my favorite season for Boise Foothills Family Photos! It's rare to capture the Boise foothills when the hills are lush and green. Boise almost feels like Ireland ;). I had the best time with this sweet family!
