Laura and Corey 01.10.2015 A Snowy, Vintage-Inspired Montana Wedding

Montana will always be my home and I find every excuse to go back, visit and take in my beautiful mountains (although I’m not a huge fan of the snow). This January a long-time friend, Laura, got married in Missoula, MT allowing me to take a quick trip back to...
Tia and Connor's Ugly Christmas Sweater Session...with Pets!

Tia and Connor’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Session…with Pets!

Kids and animals (and the weather…) are the most unpredictable elements of a photographer’s job but I have so much fun when they’re included. Tia and Connor wanted some Tacky Christmas photos with their pets this year and although the weather and the light cooperated, the “kids” weren’t amused. We...

Fyneman, the Dapper French Bulldog

For my friend’s 30th birthday, I gave her a Dapper Dog session for her fur-baby, Fyneman, the French Bulldog. Most of Carrie and Dave’s pets are named after physicists – Fyneman, Doppler and Honestly, I’ve only photographed animals for fun and it was a challenge then – they move more than...

Parkhurst Family Session 10.26.2014

I cannot believe that Lukas has grown up SO much. I showed up at the Parkhurst residence and was instantly delighted by the spunky little man running around my feet showing me his toys. He’s 1 1/2 and soon to be a big brother! Lindsay and Cam are due with their second baby in May!...

Shy Senior Photos

When I was 17 I wish I would have been as sure about my future plans as this amazing woman: Shy! I am pretty sure the only thing I knew at that age (that pertained to my future) was a) I loved to travel and b) I loved to take pictures. And that I was...

I’m obviously a little behind on my blog posts and just now getting to Natalie Newberry’s second half of her senior portrait session.

This little cutie turned one this May and I got the joy of photographing him his entire first year! For his birthday he got to have the ultimate cake for smashing – carrot cake with cream cheese frosting all in the adorable shape of a lion (made by his wonderful mother, Lindsay).  The weather even...

I actually read a blog post about a photographer who recommends that their clients bring those hand warmer packets to put in their shoes and gloves....
