Bosie, Idaho’s Basque Cultural Center

Maite and her family have been a part of Boise’s Basque Cultural Center for years. She learned about her family’s traditions, dances, foods, and history here. As this has been a significant influence, Maite wanted to celebrate this aspect of her life during her Senior Session photoshoot. Maite changed into two outfits at this Boise location. The first look was a traditional Basque festival dress. The cultural architecture of the Basque Center made these images perfect. We also got a picture of her next to her family name, which is engraved on the street.

Lavender in Downtown Boise

Maite wanted to have some flowers in her Senior pictures. The lavender bushes downtown were in full bloom, and so that is precisely what we were able to do for her. She had no fear of the bees and jumped right in.

Books and Senior Pictures

Matie loves to read books and wanted to incorporate this into her Senior pictures. We know of a great little book-nook near Hyde Park, Boise that makes for great pictures and a sweet place to sit and read. Close by was a fantastic beat-up old pick-up that we knew Maite would love amazing next to. We were right!

Samuel Marvin Photography is an incredible company!! They made us feel so comfortable, special and important. They did such a great job explaining everything to us, kept in contact with us and made sure we knew what was next. The day out with my daughter for her senior pictures was such an amazing day full of laughter, tears and memories!! They made her feel like it was all about her and her day!! They listened to her and her thoughts on what she was wanting, they were fun to be around, and they didn’t make you feel rushed or that they had to move onto the next thing. They simply made the day UNIQUE AND PERFECT!
