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.

Family Foto Shoot…

You would think that having the talent and the resources that we have in this family to take amazing family pictures… it wouldn’t be so hard. I nearly dragged Nate out on this photo shoot by the ear. And sweet, sweet redemption… by the end, he was thanking me profusely for submitting him to such ‘AMAZING LIGHT’ and locations. Being the wife of a photographer, I’m always driving around looking at the world as potential shoot locations, for Nate’s clients OR for us. ┬áStar has locations in abundance. I’ve needed some pictures for Jace’s baby book, and so, for Family Night this Monday, we set up the trusty tripod, put it on a one second timer, and just a had a blast!

Nate has been more than generous as I have painstakingly been learning the editing techniques of the professional software that he uses. What he can do in 1 minute, I do in 7. We also have very different styles of editing. As you will see on the pictures that he is posting on his blog today, they are very different from the ones that I’ve posted here, even if the image is the same. I like to have a lot of fun with a variety of filters, while Nate aims for consistency of his brand. I like dark, sultry high contrasted tones, while Nate loves the warm, creamy, slightly washed out, sunny look. I hope that both blog posts are pleasing to your eye. Speaking of ‘easy on the eye’… ISNT JACE THE CUTEST? He was a little bit cold, and a big bit tired, but at least he didn’t have a big meltdown on our very first family photo shoot.

Bree - Great pics of your cute family!

Shannon - I love my beautiful little family. 45 minutes seems like just the right amount of time to get happy pictures without killing the fun.

Pops - Luisa-dearest: We LOVE your editing of the photos! And you have some different ones that we really treasure [like the new one of you kissing Jace]. It is fun to see your editing style and compare it to Nate’s–loving them both! You two are such a class act! WELL DONE!!!

Kelley - Oh Luisa! These are incredible! Were these on a self timer?! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!
