Fill Your Home With What You Love!


From the exciting early stages of pregnancy and maternity pictures to the itty bitty newborn baby photos… Kids keep on growing! That infant stage doesn’t last long before they’re tumbling toddlers and then children waving goodbye in a school bus! What?! Where does the time go? Newborns, toddlers and children, oh my!! That’s why we take photos- so we won’t ever forget each amazing (and challenging!!) stage. Snap away on your phone but…

Never Forget!


Life is busy enough! At Cherished Images, we’ll never leave you hanging with more items on your “To Do” list. We all have good intentions, but prints and finished products are the best way to make sure that all these moments we swear we’ll never forget, don’t get lost in the sea of the “here today, gone tomorrow” world we live in. We can help! Take away the risk of mommy guilt and let us turn your “should dos” into, done and DONE!

Fleeting Moments, Ever Changing Technology...


Every moment is precious, priceless and once in a lifetime, much like the childhood that is fleeting before your eyes. In the digital age we live in, almost everyone takes lots of photos, but what happens to them next, is up to you! Technology changes daily. Where it will be 10 years from now, no one knows, but we do know that a properly cared for photographic print can last a lifetime and beyond! We specialize in products that won’t be a fleeting as time itself.

The Difference Is In The Details


Through experience, an eye for detail and impeccable service, Cherished Images has maintained a reputation for both quality and integrity in an ever changing profession. We continually seek to further our education and stay up to date on industry standards through associations like Professional Photographers of America and Professional Photographers of Idaho.  And further show our commitment to quality by being a member of the Boise Chamber of Commerce and maintaining an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.  Mix these ethics in with amazing artistry and you get why we have earned the status as one of Boise’s best photographers. Congratulations to Kelly for being named 2019 Idaho Photographer Of The Year by The Professional Photographers Of Idaho, this is her 3rd time holding this prestigious title!

Seniors, Business Headshots & Commercial Images



Life may begin with a baby, but it is certainly not the end! That’s when our sister company is around to take over as the more “grown up” side of Cherished Images. So when they (gasp…) hit the tween, teen and high school senior stage, we have you covered!! But we won’t go there yet. LOL ;) As a certified Master photographer with Professional Photographer’s of America, artist Phil White, formerly of Phil White Photography has come on board to help manage Csi Photo Design and help fill in when life gets a little “much” around here :) Congratulations to Phil for recently being named Master Photographer Of The Year for the state of Idaho!
