We are so excited to announce that our very own photographic artist, Kelly Zimmerman, has been awarded "Idaho Photographer of the Year" by Professional Photographers of Idaho!

With a print scoring a perfect 100, and an average case score of 94, her showings helped to gain this prestigious title for the 2nd year in a row. 3 judges choice ribbons and multiple trophies now adorn The 8th Street Studio along with other high honors from her 20 year career.

Associate Master Photographer, Phil White, swept the Master Senior Photographer category, along with pulling in various other awards given to some of the best photographers in Idaho.

Boise represented as a key player in the professional photography industry, and we are lucky enough to have some of the top artists in the Northwest right here at Cherished Images and CsiPhotoDesign!

Looking for Rainbows and Sunshine at the end of this storm... A Note from Kelly & Phil-

Imagine us singing the song, "The sun will come out... tomorrow... so ya gotta hang on 'til tomorrow..." (Can you hear it now? Sorry if we got the song stuck in your head! Hope it wasn't in our voices! Eek!)

You are our sunshine and rainbows during COVID-19

 

We just wanted to reach out and tell each and every one of you, just how much we appreciate your love and support during this time of unprecedented, ever changing, craziness!

We are doing the very best that we can to make sure that we are meeting your needs and looking towards the future of brighter tomorrows.

The 8th Street Studio had to temporarily shut the front doors to make sure we are in compliance with all local and recommended CDC guidelines, however please know... As your resident memory making, time-keeping, artists at CsiPhotoDesign and professional family photographers at Cherished Images , we are still HERE for you!  And we insist on making lemonade outta lemons by not getting swept up into the dreary days, as we keep our chins held high and continue to pray for health and peace of mind for all our clients, families, and friends.

We are still taking appointments, and rest assured, if you were on our list of local businesses to be photographed, we will honor those commitments, just as soon as the precautionary safety measures have been lifted.

Luckily the internet has allowed us to do a fair amount of work, and we are still answering The 8th Street Studio phone (208-996-6922) to address any of your questions or concerns, book future photography sessions and appointments, set online Reveal and Orders, and print whatever photos we can for YOU!

If you haven't already read Kelly's long winded blog post from the other day, take a minute to skim through it to see some of the ways we are working to make sure your needs are taken care of.

With the exception of the "doors being open" part... we will still give you a listening ear, hope, encouragement, and beautiful artwork during this down time.

Virtual Hugs and blessings to all!

Kelly Zimmerman & Phil White

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!

A professional business portrait makes ALL the difference...

Business Owner?  Professional looking to make business connections, climb the career ladder or market yourself?  Into networking for growth?  YOU need to read this.  A professional business portrait makes all the difference in people's perception.  It is worth FAR MORE than what it actually "costs" you.  Click here for more details... https://www.facebook.com/cherishedimagesphotography/photos/a.398850650162.178059.166967410162/10152341416745163/?type=1&theater

There are some really cool things happening around here...

As the summer has come and gone (I blinked) and the leaves start to change, I can not help but want to burst at the seams with some really fun changes happening around here!  I am super excited to introduce a new face that you might see either here, in the 8th Street Marketplace (BoDo) studio or soon, down at the 6th Street Studio.  Phil White, formerly of Phil White Photography has teamed up with me to get www.CsiPhotoDesign.com and the 6th Street Studio up and off the ground again!  Throughout the years, I have been managing (somewhat inadequately) the CsiPhotoDesign division all by myself, trying to balance that AND Cherished Images, and I am happy to say that maybe a portion of that will be taken off my plate and I will be able to focus on what and WHO I love.  My Cherished Images clients!!  Watching children, families and babies grow and change is my favorite thing about what I do, and I hope to be able to focus more on that in the very near future!!  Here's to the future.  Looking forward to showing off some of what we've done both with Cherished Images and CsiPhotoDesign.com!!
