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!

Nampa Idaho Senior Portaits | Taylor | Class of 2015

This was a fun one! Taylor lives all the way out in Kansas, but would be visiting family here in Idaho for a couple weeks this summer and luckily we were able to work her into the schedule while she was here. The fact that she sought me out rather than a photographer in Kansas was super flattering!

In our email consultations beforehand, she kept saying she was so unsure of what to wear and was nervous about being in front of the camera, but seriously…she was a rock star! We had so much fun and I was squealing at the back of my camera half the time because she was just looking so gosh darn gorgeous! Merrill Park in Eagle was beautiful too, and is always one of my favorite places to shoot.

Her wardrobe choices were great. The yellow flowy dress is so feminine and soft, and then we got a little more casual with the denim and blue cotton shirt. And since it was so hot on the day of her shoot, she didn’t even mind wading into the Boise River a bit to cool off. But her dad may have gotten a little more cooling off than he had bargained for–she got a little splash happy! It was the perfect way to finish up her senior portrait photo shoot!

Congratulations Taylor and the rest of the class of 2015!

Diana + Jason | Bogus Basin Idaho Wedding

Diana is just bursting with a kind of inner grace that this clumsy, often awkward photographer dreams of. And Jason’s face just beams when he is around her. Truly, I’m not sure I ever saw him not smiling.

This was one of the most relaxing, joyful weddings I have ever photographed. Diana and Jason created their wedding day timeline with plenty of time for getting ready, photographs, and mingling with guests, so that even the minor hiccup here and there were brushed off with a laugh. They were surrounded by their closest family and friends who drove all the way up into the beautiful Idaho mountains at the Bogus Basin ski resort to watch and support them as they said vows of love and commitment to each other….and then danced the night away with them! I was so glad they were up for heading outside for a few sunset pictures too. The mountains are such an amazing backdrop for this gorgeous couple! You must scroll all the way down because the very last photo has got to be one of my all time favorites! Getting a sun burst silhouette picture has kind of always been on my photography bucket list and this was just the perfect setting and perfect couple for it! So, yeah, when I saw that on the back of my camera I just may have squealed like a little girl. :)

Congratulations, Diana and Jason! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
