There is nothing quite like pure joy!! My little man Jax making it happen in a wheelbarrow full of water - with wild abadon. 💞
Never hold back my sweet child....even though I know that sometimes this mama can get too "mommy like" and want to calm you down or make sure you're not disturbing anyone 🙈 I want more than anything for you to be free, full of life, giving, inquisitive, passionate, and wild.
I love you always💝
Congratulations to the sweetest Leavenworth couple, Chris & Hillary!! From the handmade wood vases, to the farm to table food, and the locally foraged floral, this wedding was uniquely & wonderfully Leavenworth. 📷: @maijakarinphotography
These two 😍💕 I'm in love with this session. They were stunning, the light was perfection and to top it all off Holli is a sweet friend of mine. We met trying to beat each other out in a boot camp class and we still challenge each other today 💪
My new favorite thing... upbeat first dance songs! So fun and it totally gets the party started off on the right foot! P.S. I love that I caught people oohing and aahing over this bride's dress! ☺️ it really was stunning!
Happy Birthday @mrsstanbury! Bryn is a creative genius and is behind many of the styled photos on this page. She's a momma of 3 under 3 so her dedication to Balancing Balloons is always appreciated. Help me wish her a happy birthday! Comment on this picture to earn an entry into our giveaway (a $100 gift certificate!) saying Happy Birthday!
Hair pulled back in a very non-fancified (yep that's a word in my dictionary🙊) but effective bun, so that I can be in the moment without distraction.
I LOVE when I get to move with my couples - I'm always telling them how much the camera loves movement. It's how you get the authentic feeling, the real moment, and I'll do what's needed to capture that!
It was so fun exploring the downtown streets of Boise with Heather and Rex...stopping traffic and even them getting stopped by a few people who were on a scavenger hunt and asked them how they met. You just never know what can happen on your wedding day.😉 Thanks to my fabulous second shooter (and friend!) Debbie Brown for capturing me in my element!
I can't get enough😍 THIS boquet!!
Besides the fact that it's gorgeous, I think I love it so much because it had extra special hands that put it together, it was Hillary's 21 year old sister who worked the magic. She stayed up until the wee hours of the night putting all the flowers together. I think she might have a future career in the making 😉
What ceremony arbor dreams are made of. My second favorite element to this #ceremonybackdrop is how the natural growth below feels like it's part of the design. So good @pattibosket!

It's Friday!!! I'm excited, but not in the traditional sense. I don't work a Monday-Friday (blessed 👐), I GET to "work" this weekend, I GET to celebrate with fantastic people on one of their most joy filled days of their life, I GET to create lasting authentic images for these people. This is my J.O.B.! You BET I'm excited it's Friday!!💥 Happy Wedding Eve to Hillary & Chris!!💕😁
It may be grey outside today but this grey place setting brightens up our day. Honestly cannot get over the beauty of our marble chargers! We purchased these awhile back because marble has been our biggest obsession over the year. We wanted to bring a touch of marble to Balancing Balloons... and, well, we think we hit it out of the park with these. Hopefully the cloud cover disappears for another semi sunny evening. Happy Thursday 🌧

At the end of the night Amanda let her hair down. It couldn't have been more beautiful. It was almost like a summation of the day: they were husband and wife, the forecasted 4pm thunderstorms held off until dinner and then cleared up during toasts, everything was perfect. She let her hair down and danced, and then walked through the wildflowers with her husband while their guests continued to celebrate. She let her hair down. It was perfect. #evariebcouple#soccerhousedoesmarriage#evariebbride
We swear this table was made for two things: 1. A welcome table with guest book, room for gifts, cards, and pretty flowers. 2. Piled high with mud pies, cakes, treats, and antique dessert plates! What would you use this piece for? Available now.
This couple was so fun to work with! All the small details made their day so unique! Including a delicious s'mores bar... who doesn't love a mallow toasted to perfection 😋@heidimichellephotography @brownfamilyhomestead @sonofabrisketcatering @bridalhairbylucy
When @photosedge_weddings told me about this photo I found myself getting choked up. Andrea and Roger, both active duty, got married at Fort Leavenworth. While taking photos on their wedding, the whistle went off and Roger said it felt odd to not salute. So he did and this moment was captured. For me it beautifully showcases the depth of love so many have for this country. For all those that have fought for our freedom, thank you!
Hey pretty party people! It has been way too long since I've shared something newish on here about myself or my business. So here we go....
1️⃣ I love personality tests and I think everyone should take them. Not to be put in a box but to learn how to make relationships flourish. I am an ENFP and my husband is an INFJ. Once we understood each other's personalities we learned how to support one another.
2️⃣ I'm a firm believer that EVERY person's story deserves to be told and listened to. I know sharing something about yourself that no one else knows is scary and you feel vulnerable and naked but that's how God created us. With a story to tell and embrace! And that's what I love to do not only through my photographs but also with my words. I want to share your story. Your story of love, life and victories.
3️⃣ If you want a party girl photographing your wedding I'm your girl. I can be found dancing right along with your guests once that music gets turned on!💃🏻
