You are cordially invited to celebrate with us on November 5, 2015 for the GRAND OPENING of The 8th Street Studio!  After 16 years in the 8th Street Marketplace, we moved just one block south and now have a new home!  Ribbon cutting with the Boise Chamber of Commerce will be at 12pm and then we will have refreshments, music & studio tours on during Downtown Boise's First Thursday from 5-9pm.  Please come join us for the festivities!  Call 208-331-2288 for more information.

A quick shout out to our vendors...

Vendors don't get a lot of love... and being a "vendor", from time to time, it's nice to get a little recognition.  Here's a shout out to our favorite packaging supplier... Rice Studio Supply and their sister company Dazo Packaging.  We love what you do, you help us make our product look pretty!  :)

Santa Claus is coming to town...

Save the Date! November 14, 2015 Santa is bringing his workshop back to Boise in this exclusive limited edition photography event!

Santa will not only spend time getting to know your children, but they will even get to look over (and find!) their name on the "naughty and nice list" after he shows them around the workshop and fills their hands with a special treat! All the while, nationally award winning photographers capture the gleam in their eyes as your heart melts to the floor. The Santa Experience makes childhood memories to be held for the ages! Book your experience today as availability is extremely limited. Visit the website at The Santa Experience and then call the studio schedule 208-331-2288.

Drum roll please.... Here's the BIG news... after 16 years I think it warrants a celebration!! :D

Cherished Images is MOVING

We're moving!!!  And it's happening FAST!  We will be moving our 404 S. 8th Street Studio in the 8th Street Marketplace at BoDo into our brand new urban loft studio at 521 8th Street.  The ball is now rolling and there is lots of hustle and bustle going on around here.  We appreciate your patience as we expand our professional photography studio space.  We will have authentic wood floors and a giant natural light window along with more space... it's gorgeous!  Look for a grand opening at some point in the semi-near future!  Cherished Images Fine Art Portrait Photography and CsiPhotoDesign will be operating out of the new 8th Street Studio space beginning September 1st!

Boise Photographer Named Silver Medalist at International Photographic Competition

Boise Photographer Named Silver Medalist at International Photographic Competition
Kelly Zimmerman of Cherished Images Fine Art Portrait Photography & CsiPhotoDesign is honored by peers and jurors for high-quality photography

Boise, ID – Kelly Zimmerman of Cherished Images Fine Art Portrait Photography & CsiPhotoDesign in Boise, Idaho was named a Silver Medalist during Professional Photographers of America's 2015 International Photographic Competition. Zimmerman’s work will be on display at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, Jan. 10-12, 2016. This International Photographic Exhibit is held in conjunction with Imaging USA, an annual convention and expo for professional photographers and several photographic associations

A panel of 43 eminent jurors from across the United States selected the top photographs from nearly 5,200 total submitted entries at Gwinnett Technical College in Georgia. The level of the award is determined by how many of those four images receive the highest possible honor: acceptance into the PPA Loan Collection, which is displayed at photographic exhibitions, conventions and other photography events. Zimmerman was named a Silver Medalist, meaning that one of her four merited images entered the PPA Loan Collection. In 2015, she was one of only 115 Silver Medalists.

About PPA:
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international nonprofit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA's roots date back to 1869. It assists more than 28,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success.
