The Cates Family

I met Ashley when I was 14 years old and we were both trying out to be freshman cheerleaders where we later shared a dorm for our cheer camp at UC Davis. However, it's been 9 years since I last saw her (eeek, next year marks 10 years since I graduated high school!) We have kept in contact through Facebook, bonding over the fact that we both got married at the ripe old age of 20 :) Ashley, Nick, and their 1 year old Ben live outside of Boise, Idaho so although Ashley and I had talked about doing a session, it was hard to make happen because of the distance. They eventually decided to just fly me out to Boise, so off I went! I love visiting new places and I enjoyed an afternoon in the 90 degree heat by the pool at my hotel before we went out to take their photos. Hey, no shame in finding time to relax between work, haha. I did a two part session with them over two days. Little Ben is sweet, calm, and so well behaved! Thanks again for a fun trip you guys!

Ben on his wobbly legs!
