Well today definitely does not feel like a typical summer in Montana. It's chilly out there! I was freezing yesterday, but I was excited to see some sun this morning. Thankfully we've had some sunny days in Bozeman this past June, not many but enough to get in some beautiful family sessions for some sweet clients!
This family just makes me smile! From the first time I met their sweet girl celebrating her first birthday to now seeing them as a family of 4 with their handsome little boy.
We did get eaten alive by mosquitos, they were terrible! We have had so much rain that they have been terrible this summer.
But in between shots we were swatting them off of us (because I forgot bug spray, my camera bag is now stocked full!) We got some amazing images for this beautiful family to hang on the walls of their home to cherish forever!
So many clients ask for the beautiful backdrop of the Montana mountains in their portraits, but some clients want something different. I love finding new locations to give clients something different each year.
I love how these turned out! I spend hours driving around looking for new unique locations and this spot has become one of my favorites!
Gahh.....look at how cute these all turned out! One of the fun things about family portraits is all the fun combinations of shots you can get! I love capturing the unposed images, just having fun and interacting as a family.
One thing you will get from me when you book a session is a fun & relaxed session....yes we do some basic poses with everyone looking at the camera....but the fun is twirling, laughing, letting the kids run, lots of kissing and hugging and more laughing! I don't tell great jokes, so I fake laugh and then my clients laugh at me!
And then there are sibling pictures! Aren't these two just the sweetest!
And I had to share these...there are way more, but this little cutie pie I think may just be a future model....so many super cute modeling faces from her! These were some of my favorites!
This beautiful Montana family brought a smile to my face as I edited their images. This is why I do what I do and I stay up late at night to get images to my clients and book myself silly over the summer months....because of this....because if these images bring a smile to my face as I am editing through them....I know my clients are going to cherish them forever and when they look through them....they are going to smile again and again.
Thanks to this sweet family for allowing me to capture their forever portraits!
Love & Light,
