Boise Family Photographer

Real. Relaxed. Natural.

Hi, I’m Tamara

(Yes, appropriately, my name rhymes with camera.)

I live in a cozy pocket of Boise’s Northend in a quaint 1950’s home.
I specialize in lifestyle family photography because I want to capture your family as you really are – but at your best.

My Services

Boise Family Photo Locations

I’ve made a list of my favorite family photo locations in Boise and the greater Treasure Valley.

Why Work With Me


I strive to create a relaxed atmosphere where my clients can truly be themselves. With a friendly demeanor and easygoing nature, I foster genuine connections and capture authentic moments with ease. Laughter is encouraged, making the session feel more like a fun adventure than a formal photo shoot.


I am dedicated to tailoring each session to reflect your individuality and style. I love collaborating with clients and brainstorming ideas together to create something truly special. With me, you can expect a session filled with creativity, excitement, and a commitment to making your vision come to life.


While I’ll offer direction, I leave plenty of room for spontaneity and life to unfold organically, precisely like it should. My sessions delicately balance guided poses and raw, organic moments to reveal your true self. Together, we’ll capture unique and imaginative shots that reflect your personality and individual spirit.

Frequently Asked Questions

This simply means less formal and more movement. There is still some staging involved, but we are still able to create a little more of a natural look. I want to capture your family as you really are – but at your best.

After booking, I will ask you a series of questions to determine the best place based on your vision.

Location is not as important as you think, lighting is. A lot of people get really stressed out about finding a new place to shoot every year. Sometimes we can shoot in the same places but different times of year and have a totally new look. As long as we are looking for good lighting, we can shoot almost anywhere.

This is totally a personal preference. I personally love late summer sessions, but a lot of people love spring and fall. If you don’t care about fall colors, I suggest shooting in the summer. The weather is way more predictable. We tend to shoot early in the morning or later in the evening for these sessions. This helps beat the heat and we often have beautiful lighting.

Why I Became A Family Photographer in Boise

Boise is home: It’s where I attended college, launched my professional photography career more than a decade ago, and became a mother. It is here–in our foothills, beside our river, throughout our vibrant neighborhoods–that my personal life unfolds. In turn, it’s where I raise my camera and capture the moments, people, and places that are important to you.
