Maternity & Newborn Photography

Having a baby is a very important decision. You go through so many changes and emotions.  Maternity photos give you a chance to share your joy and remember how you felt forever.  After the baby has arrived we give you the opportunity to introduce your baby to world in a comfortable warm studio environment. Your baby changes so much the first year. You cherish every milestone from laughing and smiling to sitting up and crawling.

Capture it all with our “Baby’s First Year” package. This package includes 4 sessions maternity, newborn, six months and one year.  Our package makes it easy for you to share with family and friends. You receive photos from every session and to make it even better we put them all in a hard cover album that will be cherished forever. You receive a 16×24 gallery wrapped canvas and three mini albums. The mini albums have pictures from all four sessions and are great brag books for purses or gifting to grandparents. An option you have for that special first birthday is a smash the cake session.  We provide a birthday cake and take lots of fun photos of your baby interacting with a whole lot of frosting. These pictures are great for invitations. We also offer any of these sessions or products ala carte.

We want to help you capture all the moments life has to offer, as your photographer and your friend. Crane Studio Imaging can be there with you every step of the way.

Family Photography

My favorite two places to shoot family pictures are the Idaho Botanical Gardens and the MK Nature Center.  So many parents have told me how much their kids don’t like having their pictures taken or how it’s difficult to get them to smile. We usually start at one end of the garden and work our way through stopping to take some relaxed pictures along the way. It gives everyone time to relax and interact with the beautiful picturesque surroundings.  This method works for families of all ages.  Because we pick such beautiful places to take your family photos the finished product is full of rich vibrant colors that translate amazingly to every media imaginable such as holiday cards, canvas, calendars and albums. Photos are a reflection of our lives past and present let us help you document that journey.

We are also available for special events in your families lives such as first communions, baptisms, graduations, quinceanera, wedding showers, baby showers, birthdays, and family reunions.

Let us fill your wall with treasured memories.

Senior Photography

Senior photos should be an expression of you. They should show your personality and your individual style.

We think senior pictures are so important that we have given them their own dedicated website at and created a senior rep program. Our senior rep program gives you the opportunity to represent our studio with your friends.  As you refer friends to us you can earn gift cards and photo credit towards your final senior session in the fall.  Refer to our senior website for more information.

We offer the most current announcements and invitations in a variety of shapes and colors. We also are able to offer two sided wallet prints so you can share more than one of you favorite poses.  Our mini albums and folios make a great gift for your family members to showcase your senior style.

Spring and summer are great times to book your senior photo sessions. Most seniors get pictures done in the fall right before the year book deadline.  Because of that our schedule fills up quickly. If you really want those fall pictures I would recommend booking early to make sure we can get you in.  Don’t miss the opportunity to get amazing senior photos.

We believe so much in our senior program that we have created a dedicated website for Boise and Treasure Valley high school seniors.  Our deciated website is at  Don’t forget to mention your senior in their yearbook.  We have customized dedications ads for your senior to ad to their yearbook and its a great way to support their school and yearbook staff.

Couple Photography / Engagement Photography

Most people equate couple photography to engagement and wedding photos. All of our wedding packages come with a “Get To Know You Session”.  We call it that because it gives us an opportunity to get to know the couple and see how they interact together.

These sessions have been so successful that we want to encourage couples at any stage in their life and relationship to take advantage of the opportunity to capture their love and friendship forever.

If for some reason you have to spend time apart, pictures can help keep you connected when you are missing the one you love. These pictures can also be used to create unique personalized canvas prints, photo cards for the holidays, anniversaries or birthdays.
