Sarah Ledford, who co-owns her photography company ShutterHappy, lost her mother, a police officer, when she was only 8 years old.
Ledford remembers little about her mother except waiting for her, perched at a window, and watching her mother in uniform walking home.
She offered free family photos to officers from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday in Kathryn Albertson Park.

She never had a photo of her and her mom in uniform, and she wanted to make sure local children did.
More than 12 families showed up per hour in the morning, keeping Ledford busy.
Local businesses helped with Ledford’s salute to police families. Albertsons catered, offering free breakfast, lunch and dinner. Boise Parks and Recreation offered shuttling services. Tates Tents and Events provided tents and setup booths, among many other contributors..
