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!

Nicole and Natalie | Sisters Portraits

About 4 years ago, these beautiful girls were some of my very first “real” clients. You know, the kind that aren’t friends or family but actually found me organically and liked my work enough to pay me for it. Their dad had contacted me about getting some portraits of them done as a mother’s day present for their mom. I was super excited and super nervous, but their calm demeanor in front of my camera eased my nerves.

So when Nicole contacted me that she’d be home from college for Christmas and asked if they could get pictures done for their mom again, I was thrilled!! While I was all bundled up in my winter coat and scarf for the 35 degree day, these girls were rockin’ their short sleeves and don’t even appear cold! These girls are so sweet and smart and really are just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Nicole and Natalie were fantastic to photograph (and their mom loved the photos too!).

I’ll Be Home For Christmas | Nampa Idaho Family Photographer

Yes, it was below freezing…

…but when all seven children (and two grandkids) are home for Christmas…

…family portraits are happening!

These portraits took quite a bit of organizing after all. Everyone is growing and has a lot going on. You’ve got the oldest with feisty little twins, one newly married and soon off to law school, one newly off a church mission and returning to school, another college student, and three kids still at home but very active in sports and activities. So…nonetheless, it was quite a feat to get everyone’s schedules to mesh up.

But I think this proud mom and dad would say that it was all worth it to be able to catch this one moment where their busy, growing lives all paused for a time during this lovely Christmas season to capture these images they’ll have to cherish for years.

Wow…that sounded really cliché……but I totally mean it.
