This was for Mom – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Monday, June 26, 2017

Dad was so thoughtful to come in and get a gift certificate for family pics for Mom for Mother’s Day. She had been wanting to do family pics forever. The boys were so cute, I love capturing these ages. They love to explore, the little guy was obsessed with picking flowers for Mom, it was the sweetest! Watching families interact is one of my favorite things, its so fun to see them play and laugh together. Then capture it as a memory to have on their wall as art for years to come makes my heart happy. Showing the connection and the little loves looks that are exchanged without even realizing it – it’s the best. xoxo






We have baby goats – want to come to our house? – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Friday, June 23, 2017

This family – I can’t even…..I haven’t shot at their home since Lauren was a newborn, we have done different locations since then. But when Mom told me they had baby lambs, goats and a calf this summer and they just started bee keeping. I mean really does it get any better? A gorgeous summer, golden evening with baby animals running around and a family laughing and cuddling, kids excited to show me all around. It was pure magic. I love this family anyway, but shooting at someones home, in their personal space is really where you can get the true gist of them and it gives me warm fuzzies. Climbing trees, trying out the very first strawberry of the summer in their amazing garden it was fabulous. The garden is Mom’s favorite place, its where she goes in the morning to have her coffee relax and drink in the fresh air, I have major garden envy, it is beautiful! My favorite images of all though are the ones showing the family connection. Dad wrestling and laughing with the boys, Mom’s face when Lauren is in her arms, and then Mom and Dad together, that is what this is all about. It’s why I love doing what I do. xoxo









Even though the mosquitos – Baby Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Thursday, June 22, 2017

The mosquitos chased us away from our first location – they were swarming like a million little vampires, we tried to go for a little walk but it was such a constant cloud with zero relief we had to head somewhere else safe from those yucky bugs. We were lucky enough to have a gorgeous option close by. We could relax and enjoy the most adorable 4 month old ever. She was so sweet and easy going. She was interested in everything we walked by, just taking it all in, I’m sureshe was inspecting every blade of grass. But then turn her toward Mom and it was all she could do to eat her face and cover her in slobbery baby kisses. I couldn’t help myself at the end, I had to grab her for snuggles all the way back to the car, she was the best!!! xoxo




Baby Love – Newborn Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

This was the sweetest baby! She is being welcomed by the nicest parents and two older furry siblings. Her Mom is a vet, obviously caring and nurturing – Dad is a policeman, so quite the protector. She hit the parent jackpot! I loved this cradle! Her grandfather made it and her mom and siblings had all slept in it which makes it super special. My kiddos slept in a cradle that my sister and I did as well, there is something about handing down and using things from generation to generation that is so heart warming, comforting and peaceful. xoxo





A Family of Ballers – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

I have known this family for years but it has been a few since we have done family pics and the kids have grown so much, like a foot or two :) So it was great to get together with them for pictures. We usually get to see them on the court, with Mom or Dad probably coaching, or at least cheering or carpooling. These kiddos are straight athletes. I think they play everything possible and are good at it all. So of course when Dad said he had been dreaming of basketball pics with them in their different jerseys we made it happen. They had a great court in their backyard for the perfect backdrop. I love they way they turned out, how fun will these be when they are all grown up to look back on? What a great memory!! They are such fun kids, and an awesome family. They are so comfortable with each other and so supportive, they like to mess around and have a good time. This session was full of lots of laughs and running around. love you guys! xo





Lots of Laughs – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

This Mom is the most patient ever, we had to reschedule twice due to weather, Montana can be so fun!! It ended up working out for the best with kid’s schedules etc at least that’s what she told me. She’s the nicest. We usually never reschedule because of weather but it was like downpour crazy rain. I’m so glad we waited, we had a perfect evening, not too hot, not too cold, it was amazing! The kids were so funny! The session started out like most do – kids wondering why they had to be there, totally polite but you could tell it was not the best day of their lives, by the end they were asking to take pics doing crazy things. That’s my favorite, I love it by then end of sessions when I have new kid friends and a happy mom! Always a win in my book, we had fun, captured some love, lots of laughter, Mom is happy to finally have images of her babies, its a good day! xoxo







This family – awwww…. – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Monday, June 12, 2017

So in love with this family, their girls are adorable and Mom is gorgeous! Our little friend is obsessed with chapstick, it is so funny! She wanted to carry it the whole time, she is hilarious. I was telling Mom when she came in the studio to go over the images, that I shoot and show differently now that my kids are older. When mine were little years ago I thought everything should look perfect. Now I love the little details that are quirky and fun and really show personalities at that time in your life. The chapstick obsession makes me smile whenever I think about it. Its one of those things that drives you crazy at the time but when they are older you pine for those days and all of those cute little idiosyncrasies. She is so fun, her crazy giggles and little baby sister with those bright blue eyes put me over the edge. We started off with Dad but then turned it into a Mom and girls shoot focusing on what a day during the week is like, putting on lipstick, reading books, playing outside, cuddling. It is no doubt a house filled with love. xoxo









All the heart eyes for this family! – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Monday, June 5, 2017

This darling family has my heart. I’ve known this Mom for quite awhile through working out early in the am, she goes all the time, I rarely go…..but we’re still friends. She is the best, she always has a smile on her face, is super funny and sweet, plus gorgeous – killer combo. I was so happy to finally meet her family. They were adorable, her kiddos were fabulous, they had great little personalities, they were up playing and cuddling and just about anything that I suggested. It is so fun to know women in different scenarios and then see them in their Mom roles. They adore her to the extreme, such a great family!! I love capturing families at all different times but this age is so fun – they are open and willing to be themselves without holding back at all. They show you exactly how they are feeling and give you all the emotions. So much love! xoxo







Swings, Shades, and an adorable Pup? – Family Photographer – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

Friday, May 26, 2017

I’m so head over heels with these girls and this family! I have been photographing them since they were newborns. I’ve loved watching them grow. They recently moved into their forever house and wanted to do a photo session there. It was perfect. It will be so fun to have pics of them in front of their house throughout the years and see how the girls are growing, they look so small now – what a treasure to look back on. I’m hoping they will adopt me, I’m in love! They are one of the most well traveled, jet setting families around, I love how adventurous they are, they go to the most fun places, but home is the most important place to them, where they want to create amazing memories and spend the bulk of their summers. We took pics capturing the everyday moments since those are the things that make up our home and a house full of love. We wanted to be sure to remember the girls favorite things, playing outside on the swings with Mom, cuddling on the couch, playing with their adorable puppy and coloring in the playroom. They are the sweetest girls and family and I am always so happy when we get to spend time together, they melt me. xoxo






Finding frogs makes us happy! – Family Photography – Billings, MT – Montana Photographer

He gave her the most thoughtful Mother’s Day gift! She had been dreaming of professional family photos and he made it happen. She was over the moon! I met him when I photographed his sister’s wedding in gorgeous Sheridan years ago so it was awesome to be reintroduced and meet his fabulous family!! The girls are adorable and all have such different personalities but adore each other and get along so well. It was so cool to see how they connected in their own way with one another. Of course we made Mom and daughter shots a must and they were gorgeous. Each of those relationships is unique as well, but all of them were loving and tender. They are such a loving, fun family! We were lucky to spot a toad along the path that entertained us and even got a kiss from one of the girls! Xoxo
