We recently took a family trip to Montana, and it was love at first sight. The mountains, the valleys, the rivers, lakes, streams, the trees, the green, the stars at night – I could go on and on. To make a long story short, we hope to relocate to Montana sometime in the next 1 to 2 years. We are heading back for another visit next week and it cannot get here soon enough. What a beautiful area! I, of course, have TONS of cell phone snap shots of our trip (which in reality, are my favorites), but I thought I would share a few of my favorite portraits that I took on our trip here on my blog. There will be more to come from our next visit, so please stay tuned. :)
I’ve been doing Rylie’s pictures since she was just 2 years old – it’s been so fun to get to know her family and watch it (and her) grow! I had such a wonderful time taking these colorful portraits of her in this massive field of wildflowers! I try to shoot in these wildflowers at least once or twice every spring, but I have NEVER seen a field so beautiful, lush, or massive. It stretched for miles in every direction – it was absolutely amazing! We had a great, wet winter and that resulted in the best spring flower bloom I’ve seen here since becoming a photographer 9 years ago. Not just these orange flowers, but wildflowers in so many beautiful colors (just scroll down a ways in my blog and you will see just a few of them). Anyways, enough talking – I hope that you enjoy these images! Thank you Shellie and Rylie for making the trek out to this field with me – I had so much fun!
I recently had the opportunity to work with a little sweetheart named Channing. Her mama and daddy brought her all the way from California to see me here in Arizona – what an honor! Channing is going to be a big sister soon, and mom and dad wanted to get some portraits taken of her before the newest little one arrives in June.
This age can be so hit or miss, but Channing couldn’t have done a better job on her big day. She was full of smiles and personality and we came away with some of my very favorite images ever from this session! Channing really loved my son, Damien who I brought along to help out with the shoot. She was so cute and totally won us all over with her charming personality and sweet, dimpled smile!
Thank you again Jacque and Lawrence for bringing your sweet little girl to see me – I had a wonderful time capturing these beautiful images of your sweet little lady and family. I would love to see you again when the new baby is here! :)
