Missoula, Montana photographer specializing in families, love stories, intimate weddings & elopements.
I'm a mother, photographer, and biz owner who loves used books and true crime podcasts. I capture love stories for couples and families in Montana and beyond. Their adventures are shared right here on this blog. Ready for your own adventure? Reach out to me here!
When Lyna contacted me for a family/maternity session, I was over the moon. Lyna is one of those people that has an incredibly upbeat personality with an infectious energy- just ask all of the students at her p90x classesJ
For this shoot we wanted a very specific look- wintery scenery, but very warm tones with a golden backlight. I loved that Lyna wanted me to have a vision for this shoot, but she also had a very specific look in mind.
When you have a very specific vision in mind for your shoot, here are a few tips to ensure bringing that vision to life:
– Share that vision with your photographer and make sure the technical details are mapped out. ( If you want a golden look to your images, that won’t be achieved by shooting during a cloudy grey day.)
– Coordinate the look and feel of the shoot- what you will wear, how your interactions will be- ( do you want a formal shoot with lots of posing? Or a natural shoot?)
– And finally, if you are working with a family that has little kids- make sure the mom has a snack bribe on board. When in doubt, bring all the snacks for your kiddos at a shoot.
I am so happy with how this session turned out and that we were able to do it in the nick of time- because 2 days later Lyna went into labor and delivered a beautiful and healthy baby!!!
I always feel so honored when people choose to work with me for a shoot. I am feeling very thankful to be able to capture such a wide gamut of life experiences and milestones for families and couples.
