Back home from a fun and adventure filled family vacation to beautiful Montana, a place that I hope will be my second home one day. We are so lucky to have family to visit who take us to the most beautiful places in northern Montana - this time we boated on Holter Lake, hiked Slucie Boxes State Park and floated the Missouri River; and of course we set off a bunch of fireworks for 4th of July, much to the delight of my girls. Check out some of my favorite shots from our trip on Instagram. While there I was also lucky to do my cousin Katie’s senior portraits; Montana is such a pretty place you could get a great shot in the ditch, so the photos I got of her with the sunset and mountains and some horses as a backdrop are just gorgeous. The beautiful Katie will be featured on the blog soon or you could also see a few sneak peeks on IG.
My busy season is well underway, so many babies still on the way this month and lots of new families to meet and capture in the coming weeks. I can’t believe it but I am nearly fully booked for 2019 newborns, only 1-2 openings per month between August-December. If you are expecting this fall or winter, now is definitely the best time to book. Family session dates are also steadily filling up, a few last minute summer openings still available and fall is almost booked up. I am so thankful to all the families who have trusted me to photograph their family this year, I feel so blessed by the overwhelming support, especially for the families I see year after year and baby after baby - THANK YOU!
I’ve known Marisa for a few years now and have photographed her and her family and friends many times, so I was so excited to hear the news that she was expecting and wanted me to capture her baby boy’s first year. Sweet little Hendrix arrived a tiny bit earlier, as his mama expected he might. Luckily we snuck in a maternity session in the blossoms just in time as just a couple weeks later Hendrix arrived. I was so lucky to meet Hendrix when he was just over 12 hours old for a Fresh 48 session; 5 pounds of pure sweetness. Fresh 48 sessions capture those first days and moments in hospital that are so fleeting in the whirlwind of welcoming a new baby. I am always so honoured to capture these precious memories for families. Once everyone was home and settled we set up a time for me to come do Hendrix’s newborn photos. Big fur brother Cooper was the star of the show to start and then I was spoiled with the sleepiest most content little guy for Hendrix’s portraits. Marisa & Zack, thank you so much for choosing me to capture this special time, looking forward to see Hendrix grow up over the year. All the best. Enjoy.
