Kringlie Family | Bozeman Helena Montana Family Photographer

I'm so excited to be sharing these images of a super fun, easy going family that I spent time with a few days ago. The Kringlie family and I headed downtown to explore the back alleys for their family photos, and came away with some great images showcasing some super fun colors, backdrops and attitudes! I'm looking forward to do more urban sessions in Bozeman and Helena.

Gotta love this one. I think it totally embodies everything that a 16-year-old girl carries inside her:

Fun times, Kringlie family! Thanks for the opportunity!

Short Family | Bozeman Helena Family Photographer

Here's another family that is close to my heart. I grew up with them, and have many fond memories from church plays, and various childhood activities. Now here we are, both grown up (although it felt like we were still 12 when we got together!) with beautiful girls of our own. Time sure flies.

Major thanks to Don, again, for being fully involved and really seeming to enjoy it. Its often hard to convince dads and grandpas to participate willingly in photo sessions, but this grandpa came around in a major way! Just look at that honest smile :)

Cooper is 1! | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

I love traveling back to Ithaca, NY (my hometown) and catching up with friends from my childhood. It's strange -- I left town right after I graduated college, and now almost 13 years later it's like no time has passed when we get together. Capturing memories of them with their children is just the icing on the cake! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of Cooper's first birthday! What a smart, determined little guy!!

Jackson - 9 months | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

I've learned through the time I've been doing Baby's First Year sessions that 9 months seems to be the one they have the least patience for. I was in and out in less than an hour with Jackson, but still came away with some completely adorable images!

He looks like such a little man in his argyle sweater vest -- and so serious to boot!

Jackson 9 months-9242

Love all the props this family has to incorporate in his photos. We tried to make the firetruck work for his 6 month session, but we had to be patient and let him grow into it a bit more. Sure enough, it's perfect now!

Jackson 9 months-9228

Take a look back on Jackson's first year: 6 months, 3 months and newborn. He seems to be one of those babies who looks like himself right from the start -- he hasn't changed much at all in his face that I can see -- other than it getting chubbier and cuter each time! See you again this summer for the big ONE!

I'm back! | Bozeman Helena Montana Familly and Baby Photographer

Phew! It's been a while! I'm currently living in limbo between Bozeman and Helena, but at least I have a place to hang my hat until we close on our new house, and a computer to get some work done! I did a couple sessions while I was in NY, and one here in Montana the day after I got back. Now that I'm back in the swing of things, (did I mention I came home to a completely wiped out hard drive? yuck!) I wanted to share a few images from what I'm working on now.

I can't even begin to explain how happy this first image makes my heart. I grew up with this family -- and was honored to take their photos while I was recently visiting my hometown. And for a Dad who *claimed* he wasn't interested in getting his picture taken, I tend to think otherwise when I see this one:

Meet Cooper (and his Mom, another childhood friend of mine), the adorable 1-year-old who braved 43 degrees and soggy ground for his birthday pictures:

And 9-month old Jackson, one of my baby's first year babies -- can't believe I have only one session left with him!

I'm looking forward to a super busy summer with sessions in Bozeman and in Helena - what an adventure this will be!

But before that happens, I better get finished with editing these three sessions!
