I've been a photographer since 2014. It took a long time for my business to become official, family always came first. I am now in a place where I can really put my heart and soul into my art.

I was a young first time mom and I remember time started to escape me. My baby was born, then he was 4, now he’s almost 11 with two younger siblings. But I blinked and he became a pre-teen. 10 years ago, I didn’t invest into photos. Let me tell you how tight I’m holding on to all those non professional camera and cell phone shots of my then baby. I took picture after picture after picture. I wanted to freeze every second, every milestone.

Hey! I’m Lisa!

let’s do this together

view my work

my people. my heart.

Motherhood is such a huge part of my life, so it's important to me to help document those moments for you.

From my personal experience, I know how fast kids grow and at this point, I’m sure you do too. I know each and every milestone is so special, but it comes and goes in a blink. Time is truly a thief, so being able to hire a photographer is your opportunity to freeze time. To have those memories of your growing belly, fresh baby, or family story…forever.

My hope is that I get to grow with you, as your family continues to grow! Those memories, my friends, is what you'll be able to pass on to your kids.

"Lisa has such a huge heart and loves what she does. It shows in her photos. She works with you throughout the whole process to make the perfect memories. She goes out of her way to do so."

my wants for you

I want you to have these memories. I want you to be able to see yourself the way others see you. I don’t want you to be perfect. That doesn’t exist. I want the real, the messy, and fun. I want to capture those hugs that squeeze you tight, the eskimo kisses that will be soon outgrown, and the love. I want to share your story.

1. I was born in Germany & moved around my whole life. Specifically, 19 times in my 32 years! I do love packing and unpacking. But I’ve finally found home in Idaho.

2. I've been married to my husband for 9 years and we have three beautiful babes together, who are eleven, nine, and four. He truly is my biggest supporter, my number one fan, and my main squeeze!

3. Before I became a photographer, I was a licensed phlebotomist on my way to becoming a RN.

4. I'm a huge book junkie. By huge, I mean I read 100+ books a year!

5. The mountains call frequently and I go often.

6. I've become a huge lover of plants & water color painting.

7. I don’t drink coffee. But trust, I do still drink a lot of caffeine.

8. Summer is my favorite. 

9. I love to workout. Running is my therapy.

10. But I also love pizza and nutella. It’s called balance right?
