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!

Hartog Family Photos | Nampa Family Photographer

I am so excited to finally get to introduce to you the Hartog family.  See, I’ve had to keep this session a bit of a secret for a couple weeks until Lori could make her official announcement.  So here it is…

Lori Den Hartog has begun her run for the Idaho State Senate in District 22.

I was happy to help her out with the photography for her new website and campaign material, and am so excited for the adventure ahead for her and her family!

If you are in the Meridian, Nampa, or Kuna areas and are interested in what Lori has to offer your district, you can find out more on her website and stay up to date with her campaign on her Facebook page.

Jamie + Kevin | Engagement Portraits in Boise Idaho

This first photo of Jamie and Kevin is my absolute favorite because in my mind it is just so them!  They are fun and adorable and just so perfect for each other!

One of the best things about being able to take a couple’s engagement pictures is getting to know them before the (often stressful) wedding day.  I get to see what poses and looks work best for them, and they get a feel for my shooting style, all during a relaxed and fun session months before their big day.  While shooting Jamie and Kevin, I quickly realized that this beautiful, joyful smile of hers is definitely Jamie’s signature look and trying to get her to do a serious, vogue-like face was going to just look awkward.  This is her.  And she’s gorgeous!

I’m so glad they braved the cold January weather with me and I can’t wait for their (warm!) summer wedding!

Military Discounts for Photography | Boise Idaho

I just received another wedding inquiry (and believe me, I get excited about each and every one!).  This one was from a sweet bride in Boise who is planning her summer wedding.  It will be a military wedding because her fiancé is a Marine Corps Corporal.

It was just after I read that that I realized that I have neglected to publically announce my utter respect, appreciation, and gratitude to our military!

Offering a military discount of 10% is the very least I can do to show that.

Just to be clear, that’s 10% off any wedding package or session (for families, couples, newborns, anything).

And again, THANK YOU for protecting our freedoms!

Wedding at Kathryn Albertson Park26

The fine print:  For wedding packages, this offer extends only to the bride and groom. For another type of session, serviceman or woman needs to be present at the time of session.  Either in portraits (for family sessions or as a parent to children in a photography session).  ID of service status, current or retired will be asked for at the time of session.
