{Family Photo Shoot}

When Jaden was younger and after Cooper was born, I was adamant about family photos. I scheduled professional photos at least twice a year. It was important to me to capture our family and the boys while they're growing since their looks change and they grow up so fast. After Jaden left for Utah, I felt guilty about having family pictures taken without him. It took some time, but I realized that life doesn't stop just because he is there and I didn't want to miss out on capturing these moments with Cooper.

When I worked in morning radio, we had a listener, Elaine Farris, who had lived in Boise and was a fan of the show. She had moved to Utah and still listened to us by streaming our show on the app. We became friends and followed each other on social media. Elaine is a professional photographer and I had admired her work for awhile. She posted online that she was going to be in town visiting and scheduling just a few mini photo sessions. I jumped on the chance to have her take our family photos! We met in the Rose Garden in downtown Boise and had so much fun. I don't think we stopped laughing the entire time!
