"This was the best photoshoot I've ever had. I'm pleased with all my maternity photos. I loved shooting in the studio and got a huge variety of shots in different outfits. Katie is wonderful to work with. Thank you for helping create this memory."

Hi There!

Hey, I'm Katie-

I'm the passion and photographer behind Francelles Photography. My journey with photography started over 16 years ago. Boy does that make me feel old!


I'm a mother to three. My babies are no longer babies, we are getting into the teens here. It puts things in perspective once they are no longer little. You could say it's kind of the driving force behind what I do. I believe the saying is "The days are long but the years are short." I know, we may roll our eyes sometimes hearing that, especially when the days can be really, really long! When the word "Mom" is the last thing we want to hear again for the One Millionth Time. But now, having mourned my baby years I get it! The best things in life are happening now and before we know it, photographs are all we have.


My style is relaxed and natural. I love capturing images that are full of emotion, connection, and love. Finding the little things that bring light to our lives for us to remember and cherish forever.


If your style is like mine, you love what you see, and are looking for a photographer that is excited and passionate about what they do. Someone who is your ally in planning all the details, and who makes taking photos an enjoyable experience, then I am your gal! 


Photographer Katie Chavez of Francelles Photography, Boise Idaho photographer

Katie has been absolutely amazing to work with for both our maternity and newborn photoshoots. We took pictures on location at a local nature preserve and also at her studio- each experience was fantastic. She has been so sweet and easy-going, plus was a total baby whisperer as she got the perfect shots of our little one. We treasure our stunning photos from Katie and look forward to working with her again!

We will absolutely use Francelles photography again!
