Nicole - Loyola Sacred Heart High School | Montana Senior Portraiture

Here's a fun little behind the scenes of this AMAZINGLY bold, bright, and stylishly stunner HS Senior session that I had the honour of shooting for Nicole of Loyola Sacred Heart HS.

Where did this photo shoot take place?
This shoot took place in downtown Missoula. We had to do some REALLY quick thinking on where we wanted to go because as soon as we finished getting ready for the session, a gi-NORMOUS rain storm hit, so we had to dodge for cover to get out of the drenching rain! So while it rained buckets, we shot here:

Did you collaborate with this senior to come up with the clothing and/or concept for this shoot?
We worked together for this session via Pinterest. We created a "VRP Shoot Idea" board, where Nicole showed me the look she was going for, and then I collaborated with one of the local boutiques in town, One Eleven Boutique, to dress her in the style she wanted! 

What do you want this session to convey about this senior and about your senior photography style?
This session was meant to convey "Classy". My photography style is meant to be Classy and Unique. Edgy and Chic. I ALWAYS want Mum and Dad to be happy while giving the Senior the unique edge that teenagers crave. Always timeless... never aging.

Thank you Nicole for allowing VRP to be a part of the most amazing and important time in your life! Each of my seniors mean the world to me, and I love that I get to take the time to be there for them! Not just being that run-of-mill photographer who you set a date, shoot and disappear... I get to know my senior and their family! Giving that extra special touch, where it's needed and wanted the most.

VRP - Jenn, Rick, & their young Padawan | Montana Maternity Session

There isn't anything much more beautiful in this world than love. And with love comes family. (Okay, I'm gonna start crying now...) I love my own family to pieces, and when I did this session for these two, very amazing and in love, young people who are STARTING their own family... it hit very close to home.

Filled with passion of their relationship, loving and fun, this session embodied the spirit of "them". It isn't your typical maternity session. And that is what made it so amazing.  Jenn and Rick brought the things that that symbolize them and what they hope and dream for their wee lil bundle of Grace. The things that make them laugh, and the things that bring them joy and togetherness. And there was lots of laughs and good times during this session. And as you enjoy the images from this session,

"May the Force be with you"...

VRP - Mommy MakeOver Session - Tasha | Montana Portraiture Photography

Tasha is a wife, mommy of 3, holds down a 40 hour a week job, AND on top of it, actually just got a NEW job! *PHEW*!!! That's a lot going on in one woman's life! So it's obvious that it is a bit hard for that wife, mommy, & professional to make time for herself. 

That's why Mountain FM teamed up with VioletRay Photography, Skin Chic, Shear Art, One Eleven Boutique, and Tootsie's Nail Salon to create that special touch package for mum's like Tasha, who won the July giveaway! 

Here on the blog, is a look at the joy behind the "Mommy MakeOver". And after your done enjoying the fun images, follow the link MoClub to find out how YOU can enter if your a mommy in the Missoula area!
