Boise, Idaho Professional Photographer & Graphic Design

Untitled photo

      I am Desiree, Professional Portrait Photographer and Graphic Designer in the Treasure Valley, Idaho. I specialize in Portrait Photography (Family, Seniors, Engagement, Maternity, Newborns, Boudoir, Corporate Headshots and Personal and Business Branding) and Graphic Design. When I am not working on editing, on graphic designs, or on location sessions with clients; you will find me traveling, hiking, spending time with family, and doing Landscape Photography. I truly enjoy experiencing and seeing this phenomenal world we live in. God is an amazing artist. 


      I have been a Professional Photographer for 10 years and a year as a Graphic Designer (I Just Graduated! Yippee!). Photography and Graphic Design is my God given callings and I am grateful to call them my professions. I love to be able to utilize the tools and experience I have gained to capture amazing photos and to help businesses and entrepreneurs flourish with their marketing needs. I strive for perfection with every photograph and design I undertake.  I take my time with one photograph and design at a time because each individual image and design has a specific story and/or feel screaming to come out. I assume perfection is possible and I want to bring it out of every photograph and design.

      When it comes to photography, I don’t just photograph subjects; I photograph the way they make me feel. Admittedly, it’s a bit of a strange thought, but it’s honest and it’s the best way to describe my approach to photography. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very, very well. I love to photograph my portraits in the heart of Idaho (Treasure Valley) with its amazing parks and scenery. Photography is to discover, it is to capture, to stir up feelings, and emotions from that individual moment. Photography is the experience, understanding, learning, and essentially practicing the freedom of being you, loving you, the world, and the people in it. 

I have invested A LOT time and money into my education and craft. I have mentored under Sue Bryce, taken several webinars/workshops, online classes, and certification courses.  I am continually searching for the best way to photograph, pose, design, create, organize, and treat my clients the BEST, so that I can give the optimal experience possible!

I can't wait to be of assistance to you.


A little more about me! (:

There are only 5 things that are the most important to me in life: Jesus/God, family, my fur babes, friends, and continual growth in all aspects of life. Life is short and passes by quickly, so I like to cultivate all the most important parts of it. A few other things about me...I love being an aunty to my precious babe Emiliano. I am a cat whisperer LOL. I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. I am a go-getter, I love to have a good time and laugh, I am goofy and truly enjoy connecting and learning about people. I love people. <3
