Golfing Beauty | Missoula Child Portrait Photographer

I'm a little ashamed that I've been so MIA from my own blog. I'm not going to lie, April has been a whirlwind of events, and planning, and trying to stay on top of everything has been a little bit interesting! So I'm finally getting to share this amazing "fantasy and imagination" session with everyone.

This was a team effort between me and Jennifer at Skin Chic. We wanted something whimsical and full of bright beauty. Collaborating with a local floral shop, The Flower Bed in Missoula, we headed out to Larchmont Golf course on a true Montana spring day and enjoyed the finer things in life. 

Enjoy, and let your imagination take flight.

Brina | Hamilton HighSchool Class of 2013 | Montana Senior Photography

Brina is a HS Senior from the Class of 2013, Hamilton High School. She wanted something unique and different with a little urban and yet a country feel. So after thinking about it and doing a little scouting, we settled on the North side of Missoula. Just perfect for the fun accessories she brought with her!

Best Friends Session | Florence High School | Missoula Senior Portrait Photographer

This was kind of a "planned - impromptu" Best Friends session. I started
planning this session by doing concept pinning on Pinterest for a couple
months. Then, putting it all together using only props that I already had
and collaborating with the girls and what they had, we tried to focus on
recycling. Pulling from a "Hippie" vibe, we had planned to go shoot in one
of my favourite walking spots when a huge snow storm hit! Being natives of
Montana though, you work with what you're given and we stuck to our idea
and created our own hippie magic!
