Kamden – 9 Months :: {Billings, MT Baby Photographer}

Look who stopped by my house to show me how big he’s gotten! I can’t believe that Kamden is already 9 months and will be one before we know it! He is such a little hunk and has the sweetest demeanor. It took him a while to warm up to my camera, but I knew that he couldn’t hold back that cute smile forever! I love this guy!

Ben – One Year Old :: {Billings, MT Child & Family Photographer}

I first met this little guy when he was just one month old and he slept through the entire photo shoot. Well, he did quite the opposite during his one year session! Ben’s parents work at a gymnastics school, so it’s only natural that he loves to move. They said he’s happiest when he’s barefoot, flipping in the air or hanging upside down. He’s too cute for words and has the best facial expressions of any little tot I’ve seen. I can tell that he must keep his mommy & daddy on their toes, but I think they’re okay with it cause they love him so much. What a great family and an incredibly fun session! Check out the cake smash photos at the end!!

Matthew :: {Billings, MT Senior Portrait Photographer}

Matthew came all the way from Miles City for his senior portrait session and I’m so glad that he did! I took his sister’s senior portraits last year and I absolutely loved visiting with his mom, so I’m glad she tagged along with us. Matthew is definitely a triple threat! He plays golf & baseball and not only is he a good-looking kid, he has the best personality and witty sense of humor to go along with it. We had a blast during his session! I know that this kid has a lot of good things in store for him in the future!

Whitney + Chad :: {Montana Wedding Photographer}

Oh Red Lodge, you never seem to disappoint me! I would do a wedding there every weekend if I could. So of course I jumped at the opportunity to photograph Whitney & Chad’s wedding at Rock Creek Resort. They were an absolute dream to work with and are one of those couples that I feel like I’ve known my whole life. They both have the sweetest personalities and they appreciate my sarcastic humor… I’m glad that someone thinks I’m funny!

I always tell couples that if they have an outgoing bridal party they’re going to end up with a ton of photos, well, that was very true with this group. I had the hardest time narrowing photos down just to show some sneak peeks! Every person at this wedding was so entertaining and incredibly photogenic. We were laughing the whole day — even when it poured with rain and we were all stuck under a pine tree to wait it out. Nothing could rain out this parade! The sun came out just in time for the ceremony and lead way to an all night celebration. I didn’t ever want to leave because I was having so much fun photographing this crew!

Whitney & Chad, you are surrounded by some pretty awesome people who support you in everything you do. It’s evident in your smiles that your love is natural & sincere. You guys belong together and I’m so happy that I could capture the start of your life together as husband & wife. Congratulations!

J.J. + Jacki :: {Montana Wedding Photographer}

Don’t get me wrong, I love big weddings, but sometimes smaller weddings seem to be the way to go. Just a bunch of laid-back folks gathering together to celebrate the marriage two fun-loving people. Jacki & J.J. did it their way and I definitely think that was the right way! They were married at Rock Creek Resort in Red Lodge, MT and it was absolutely perfect!
