Portraits by Cynthi bio picture
  • Hi! I'm Cynthi (yep, it's short for Cynthia). I'm a wedding and portrait photographer serving the Treasure Valley in Southwest Idaho. I'm a lover of beautiful light, sweet glass (nerdy photographer lingo for camera lenses), and the whole creative process that each and every session brings!

    I have a casual and relaxed approach to sessions. I'm a pretty mellow kind of girl...until I nail a really killer shot...at which point I've been known to squeal and/or scream. :) Have a look around and if you have any questions or are ready to book a session, just click on the "Contact Me" form above!

Fun Children’s Photo Shoot {Caldwell Idaho Children’s Photographer}

I photographed this little cutie and her family last year, and I was so excited that they came back to me when her uncles came into town (yep, those little guys are actually her uncles).  :)
Oh, this funny girl just kills me!  She seemed shy at first, but once we got singing, she totally loosened up.
Such handsome little studs they are!

Alison Moulton - I am looking for a photographer for a fun event! For the last two years, Caldwell Fine Arts has sponsored Clara’s Tea Party in conjunction with the Nutcracker Ballet to raise money for our Educational Outreach in the public schools. The storytellers, puppet shows, drama productions, brass quintets, and ethnic performances we present to students are usually their only opportunities to see live artistic performances. We serve over 9,000 children each year in the Treasure Valley, and have been reaching out to schools for 52 years!

Clara’s Tea Party is such a fun event, where the dancers from the Nutcracker come to interact and dance with the children. We have treats, face-painting, crafts, and photographs. The kids all dress up and from their entrance on the red carpet, is a pretty amazing party. Clara’s Tea Party is on December 11 at 6pm and December 12 at 11am. It lasts about an hour. It is held at the beautiful Langroise Center on the College of Idaho campus, complete with marble floors and white pillars. The party costs $5 for adults and children.

We would like to offer photographs at the party and would invite photographers to send in a proposition to cover the event. Here are some details:

Families would opt to have their pictures taken for an additional cost.
We would like to offer a 5×7 at a very reasonable price. Please let us know what you can do it for. We would add a dollar or two to the price for our fundraiser, and you would keep the rest.
When you send the picture to the family, you can include information to have them order more prints, Christmas cards, etc. All the profits would be yours. This is where I’d imagine you’d make most of the money, and the 5×7 would be the example of what a great photographer you are.
At the photo shoot, you can also have flyers, promo picture albums, or whatever you would like to do to promote your business. We have about 300 at the parties last year, up from 150 the year before. We are planning on 400 this year. We will also list your business in the flyer for the Nutcracker Ballet. This will reach over a thousand people.
The photographer would be responsible for setting up their own photo station in Langroise, with a backdrop or scene, props, etc.
The photographer would mail out the pictures to the families. This could be done by having the family write their address on an envelope and keeping track of the picture number.
Alternatively, you could give us the information and the pics on a CD, and we can get them printed at Walgreens or wherever for $1.99. You would still advertise at the party, but not have to send them out.

So, any questions? If you’d like to participate, please send me an email this week, with the pricing on what you can do a 5×7 for. I’ve looked at your site, and I think that you’d be a great addition to a great party.

Thanks so much!
