Runner-up | Bozeman Helena Montana Photographer

If you follow my photo of the day blog, (and if you don't, you should!) you'll notice this one is missing. I had a hard time deciding which to go with today. I just love all the barns throughout our great state -- there's something unique and special about every single one. I'm pretty sure this is the only yellow one I've seen since I've moved here (please correct me if I'm wrong -- I don't get out much.....)

Alas, I chose shadow over barn. Here's the runner up.

Cake Smash | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

As I book more first birthday sessions, I wanted to give folks an idea of a way to make some super fun memories out of this occasion! Of course we start the session with clothes on and some more *formal* (read: non-messy) shots, but then we break down to diaper and cake for a cake smash! This is one of my favorite things to do with little ones! They love it, mom loves it, I love it, and you get a freshly washed baby immediately after the session ;)

Keep this in mind for your baby's first year session, whether it's a stand-alone booking or the culmination of baby's first year program with me!

Storyboards are a great way to commemorate the experience from start to finish!

This square storyboard can be printed either as 16 or 20 inch.

Another popular size is 10x20 -- this can contain between two and four images from the session.

Happy Birthday Bryn! | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

I had another wonderful session with another birthday girl recently under my birthday special! YAY! This is such a fun age full of movement, smiles, and big eyes. Bryn was no exception, even though she was working on getting a new tooth through...

Happy Birthday, beautiful girl!

Though Bryn was mostly over it at this point, we had to snap a few family shots with the furry child, Ellie. Ellie was thrilled to be invited onto the bed (a first time for everything!)

Happy Birthday Ally! | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

Confession time: I have a new favorite all time photo, and it's not of my own daughter. {gasp!}

Miss Ally and I celebrated her birthday a little late after recovering from a cold, but as they say, good things come to those who wait! We spent the first half of the session getting some more formal shots, then stripped her down to her diaper and let her go to town with a cake smash! I have to apologize - I didn't even get a "before" shot of her with the cake! There was no holding her back --as soon as her mama put her down, she was on that cake - literally!

Sugar and spice and everything nice. That's what little Ally is made of!

Oh, for the record, this is the new favorite.

I say it a lot -- babies tell so much through their eyes. They may not have many words yet, but WOW. These eyes have a lot to say!

Happy Birthday Brooklyn! | Bozeman Helena Montana Child Photographer

Happy Birthday, Brooklyn!

Brooklyn recently turned three years old! I can't believe how fast time goes by -- it seems like just yesterday I met Brooklyn shortly before her second birthday... Then along came her beautiful sister whom I've had the pleasure of photographing every three months throughout her first year. Their wonderful mom has become a friend, and I am so grateful for the opportunities to capture these images of her babies.

Baby Ian | Bozeman Helena Montana Newborn Baby Photographer

It's my pleasure to introduce you to baby Ian, a total little sweetheart! I'm so glad I had the chance to meet him and his lovely parents. He gave me a bit of a marathon session, but it was totally worth every minute.

I can't not share this image. Besides the totally adorable wrinkles, I think the expression on his face is just as adorable as a smile! (I promise he didn't cry for long - it was just one of those quick fleeting moments!)


I'll be working feverishly this week to get through the rest of his images!

Lilly ~ 6 months | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

I truly adore watching my babies grow up! OK, they're not my babies, but given that I get to visit them every three months through their first year, I feel like I have some connection to them. It's so fun to anticipate each session and see how much they've grown and changed since last time I saw them.

Case in point, little Miss Lilly. Nothing but sweet. The same beautiful smile since the beginning. You'd never even know she was battling a cold this day, because every time I looked at her, she just smiled! See for yourself: Lilly at 3 months and as a newborn.

I try to always capture baby parts in addition to their beautiful eyes and faces. (Confession: baby belly buttons are my all time favorite baby part).

And of course, major props to Dad, a.k.a. baby wrangler. I couldn't do what I do without parents lending a helping hand along the way!
