Vision and Art- Avant Garde | Missoula Fashion Photographer

Katrina Weingart
VioletRay Photography
Lolo National Forest, Montana


Beauty, Passion, Fashion, and Art.

These are things that made up this session. A local makeup artist and I got together to brain storm on a fun session to get ourselves out of our wet wintertime blues. When we met to discuss it, we knew we wanted high fashion and couture. Then when I pulled out my stash of "GracyLu Original" hats and hair pieces, the puzzle came together.

Jennifer and I knew who our two models were going to be, and based on that, we chose the hair pieces that we wanted them to showcase. From there, we went clothes hunting, choosing very chic and edgy clothing to accent our "center pieces".

When it came to the day of the shoot, it was downpouring torrential buckets of sleet, so we drove up almost 4,200 ft above sea level to the Lolo National Forest and used the natural backdrop of the forest to accent our high fashion, couture style. SUCCESS! The haze of fog coming through the ravine of the mountains gave us a sense of mystery and romanticism that is hard to replicate!

Paige Senior Session | Missoula Senior Photographer

VioletRay Photography is an all natural lighting photography business out of Florence, MT. Serving all the greater Missoula areas, I get to partake in all the joys of being a photographer in Montana!!! There are many wonderful reasons to be a photographer in this Big Sky state, and I was fortunate enough to have a senior who wanted to showcase Montana at her finest!

First thing off, as a opening to this session, the first thing you have understand is that in Montana, you can any one of the 4 season at any given point in time of an average day. No jokes, it's snowed in July before! So when Paige, a High School Senior student from Sentinel High, chose to go to a remote location up Rock Creek, a wilderness area where he grew up on a ranch, I knew there would be a spark of "epic" to his session. 

The started off slightly blustery, when we met at Starbuck (yay for coffee!) and headed out for our spot, and by the time we got there the sun was showing its golden glory. We managed to find golden fields of wheat and a terrific old fashioned fence. As we moved down the back roads heading towards a swinging bridge the weather definately started to change towards the more "snowey" side giving us some great in-depth dimensional looks!
