Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.

WPPI: The Perkes in Vegas…

Having Nate as a professional photographer has MANY perks. Going to the WPPI convention in Las Vegas once a year is DEFINITELY one of those perks. WPPI is Wedding & Portrait Photographers International and is a blast for photographers, and non-photographers alike. This year, Mom & Papa Perkes met us there, and having them there…

Oscar B. Morales - Wow!!! Nice shoot, I would love to know who took which picture. Also the models were outstanding, the lines, the curves, the wonderful body (body work) the yellow color, the Fernandez family color. What can I say, I love Moose-tangs.

He Went #1 and #2!!!

We’ve hoped that you all have been able to view the pictures that Nate and I have taken of Jace and posted in different places, both on Facebook and on Nate’s blog [Check them out here or here or here]. We have had SO much fun finding backdrops and props to showcase our little rockstar….

Andrew - I love the pictures, you are valiant for doing it all without a diaper!

Danella - Tu hijito está chinito!! -_- está bien bonito! =)

Oscar B. Morales - Hi Guys, Keep the pictures coming. I often wonder, what are this little Angels trying to tell us !!! I sometimes get lost in toughts of what it is that they remember before they totally forget and as you know me I always talk this is little ones as if they were little women and little men.

Love you,

Pappa Daddy

Linda Erickson - Darling pictures! I went to my mom’s yesterday and she was just dying to show me all of the beautiful pictures of Jace. They are adorable and she loves them. I’m sure she shows everyone who comes by!

Emily Brems - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the first picture with Nate and Jace is looking up at him. Beautiful!! And the last picture looks like something from a nativity scene!! Luisa’s pic made me laugh. He so obviously knows that mama is his food source and that she is currently holding him. HEHE. You guys are so going to appreciate having all these wonderful pictures of him when he gets older and looks nothing like he did in the beginning! Want to see more of how things are going and hear more about how the adjustment is and what you are thinking of this change in your lives!!

An Intriguing Notion…

For reasons STILL unbeknownst to me, Nate and I have been toying with the idea of me becoming his ‘back-up photographer’ or ‘second shooter’ [sounds like a sniper term in a Bourne movie]. It has been a very intimidating experience, considering the fact that, oh I don’t know… I’M NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER!! But Nate and…

Ken and Jen Perkes - You have really blown us away with your talent, Luisa. Wonderful eye! Something that is hard to teach. Almost every shoot you two have done together, my favorite photograph turns out to be one you shot. I hope you keep doing it.

You inspired me so much that I actually offered to second shoot for Mom. She–knowing my techno skills–wisely responded: "THANKS! But don't call us; we'll call you!"

Lisa, Danny, and Blake - Luisa you're great! These definitely look like a professional. Good job girl. I definitely think you should keep doing it, especially because you'll be taking so many of your new little guy. Good job!

Second Shooting…

When I was 15 years old, I got a job working at Papa Gino’s with my best friend, Briana. The job, overall, wasn’t the worst I’ve ever had, but only a best friend can turn the drudgery of a JOB into the MOST fun you’ve ever had. Nate just can’t seem to get enough of…
