This session was so much fun! We did this family of four at Kathryn Albertson Park here in Boise, Idaho. This park is a gorgeous setting with lots of wildlife. I've seen many rabbits and geese other birds here. There have been deer sightings at this Boise park as well. According to Boise Parks and Recreation, "The park is named for Kathryn McCurry Albertson, a Boise native who met her future husband, Joe Albertson, at the College of Idaho. Joe Albertson was the founder of Albertsons Inc." The park map shows the extensive paved trails throughout the park.
Here are 3 links to older articles, but they give a wonderful background about Kathryn Albertson Park here in Boise, Idaho:
This park is wonderful for outdoor Boise, Idaho portrait sessions because of the variety of backdrops available. There are ponds, bridges, beautiful foliage, and gorgeous pathways. In the spring and summer, there are fields of gorgeous flowers. There is also an amazing water fountain in the middle of one of the ponds that runs in the summer that makes a pretty backdrop. Stokes Photography in Boise, Idaho has had many wonderful sessions at this park.
This family of four had two cute adorable boys. We started out in superhero costumes to get the boys at ease. They gave us wonderful super hero poses and ran around in their capes and masks. It was so much fun! Mom and dad were the sweetest ever and we were able to capture genuine moments of fun and laughter during our session. The weather was perfect for this session and we had beautiful Boise sun shining down on us. This is part 1 of this session. I promise to post more in a later blog!
The weather out there is not too bad, Boiseans. We can definitely get gorgeous family portraits in this season. There are so many nice winter outfits that photograph well, like scarves, hats, and boots. Contact me today to schedule your session!

Here is part 2 of the amazing portrait session with Mrs. Idaho, Naomi Gibbs, here in our Boise, Idaho Stokes Photography studio! Check out Part 1 in case you missed it.
Naomi Gibbs is Mrs. Idaho International 2017. Here's a quote from Naomi about her story:
"I grew up as a shy and over-weight homeschooler. I began a modeling career in NYC as a plus size model at age 18. Years later I fulfilled a dream of mine: becoming a talent manager and developer, overseeing the careers of numerous published models and actors at a national level. I also attended the Fashion Institute of Technology where I became certified as an Image Consultant. As I look back, I realize how hard these goals were to achieve, but I reached these goals because of my passion and believing in myself. It was in that process, I found the beauty in my struggle. Everyone faces challenges at some point in his or her lifetime. I have faced heartache and trauma that would have brought most to their knees. In truth, it brought me to mine, in prayer. Through perseverance, I triumphed over those obstacles and defined the memory they would be, not letting them define me or my future. Everyone has the ability to find the beauty in life’s challenges. I have been living this message for more than 20 years, not knowing that this has been my message my entire life. Each person’s challenge varies. It could be anything from the loss of a loved one, to a health crisis, to even a natural disaster. Some are short term fixes, and others are not, making one question: Why Me? I know that in my heart I was born to inspire, to teach, and to encourage women that one is only bound by his or her own limits, and to make the most out of everything in your life. This has led me to share the message and reach people with a book I'm writing, titled, 'Beauty of Success.'"
I'm so appreciative that I got to work with Naomi and that she shared her personal story with me.
Naomi got this gorgeous raspberry dress with a bow was from Something Old, Something New in Eagle, Idaho. It is a beautiful, vibrant color that photographed well. Naomi's nails were done by Two Rivers Salon and Spa in Eagle, Idaho. Naomi did her own beautiful makeup.

We had little baby Gerardo in the studio in Boise, Idaho recently. He was the most adorable little baby. Gerardo had gorgeous features and beautiful skin and slept like a dream. We were able to have multiple setups, including the custom made bed prop, basket, and multiple backdrops as well. At the end of the session, we took some sibling images and then family images with beautiful back lighting. The family was dressed to the nines! They looked perfect in their black and white coordinating outfits. After the formal portraits, they changed into their baseball team shirts and we got more amazing shots!
His family members are super baseball fans and play baseball as well and we incorporated some baseball props in the session. We used a ball and glove and had a cute baseball beanie as well. We are always so excited to incorporate any props that you may have in mind for a session! Please let us know your ideas and we can create a setup to achieve your vision!
