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!

Introducing…Gracie! | Boise Idaho Newborn Photographer

When I met Gracie she was just 2 weeks old and milk-drunk sleepy…it was love at first sight!  And then there’s her hair!  It’s wild and crazy in such an adorable way.  Only a baby can rock hair like that.  She seemed to love her first photo shoot and happily slept through almost the whole thing.  She was a dream to work with and made my job so easy.  Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how I get to snuggle and play with babies and I call this a “job.”  :)

Caldwell Idaho Childrens Photographer | Ethan’s 3 year pictures

Boise Childrens Photographer Affordable 01Literally 5 minutes before these photos were taken he was being so shy, he was hiding behind his mom and wouldn’t even look at me.

Cindy had warned me that Ethan is often timid around new people, which is certainly not unusual. Most kids at least go through a phase where they are very shy around strangers and only want to cling to mom.  But I have never let that get in the way of creating a fun session and capturing great images of these wonderful kids!

As Ethan clung to his mama, I quickly snapped an image and let him see it on the back of my camera. Now he was starting to think that the big-camera-lady wasn’t quite so scary after all.  We “went on a walk” down the path and his mom helped him walk into the tall grass here where I wanted him to stand.  He was beginning to warm up to me, and as soon as Mr. Monkey came out of my bag he was all giggles!  Being able to win over the trust of kids is not always this easy or as quick, but it sure is rewarding when I get that first smile…and then giggle…and then big belly laugh. :)

And after that initial laugh, Ethan was feeling assured that this was not going to be scary at all but that in fact we were here to have FUN!  And we certainly did!  There was some chasing and jumping, peek-a-boo games, tickling with the soft weeds, and even a pretend picnic on his special blanket.  Happy birthday, Ethan! 3 years old is a great age to be!

If you’d like to schedule your own session…don’t be shy…go ahead and click that “Contact Me” tab at the top.  I promise it won’t be scary! :)
