Castle Family | Helena Bozeman Montana Family Photographer

I've learned over time that sometimes the best photos come when people are at their most relaxed. Usually what that means is that some of the best images come from the last 20 minutes of a session, after everyone's had a chance to get used to me and my camera in their face. It can also mean that the best shot you'll get of a teenage boy just *happens* to be with his baseball cap on. Not off. Because that's how he's most comfortable with himself. Case in point, a couple of great looking teenage kids with a wonderful mom. She's Antoinette, of Antoinette's Hair and Make-Up Studio in Bozeman. Not only is she a great mom, but she does a mean cut and color. Oh, and she's the only place in town that stocks Bare Minerals (as far as I know).

Stop by and say hi! Tell her I sent you.

The final step | Bozeman Helena Photographer

It's finally here! The last chapter of our move from Bozeman to Helena! YAY!

As I prepare to unplug and pack my computer away, I'm overwhelmed with the excitement of a new beginning. I'm sad to leave all my awesome friends and clients behind in Bozeman, but remind myself that it's only a short ride away... In fact, I have bookings in Bozeman through 2012, so it's not like I'm really going to be *gone*.

So, Helena, here I come!! I will be without internet for a few days to a week, but you can always reach me on my cell -- 406.600.2879. I'd love to talk about booking a session and get you on the calendar!

To all my Bozeman peeps -- please tell your friends and family in the Helena area about Zo-Mak Photography! For every successful referral, you'll receive a free 8x12 print from a prior gallery of your choice!

Happy Trails :)

Hot Mama Handbags | Helena Bozeman Montana Product Commercial Photographer

I love surrounding myself with creative people. I also love surrounding myself with people who have followed their dreams and made their lives exactly what they want them to be. My friend, Maranda Lee is one of those people. We started our creative journeys at about the same time shortly after our youngest kids were born (my baby girl and her baby boy were born three days apart!) and have just blossomed into something we never imagined was possible.
Maranda is the brains and magic (she does it all, from design to sewing to marketing and sales...) behind maranda lee - the original Hot Mama Handbags. She started making bags that were functional and fun for new moms, but it's become so much more than that. All sorts of different bags and accessories, fun, flirty skirts for mom, sun hats for the kiddos... Every time I turn around, she's got something new and awesome.

So glad to be a part of your journey, Maranda!

Sarah and Chase are having a baby | Helena Bozeman Montana Maternity Family Photographer

Meet Sarah and Chase, who will be welcoming their first baby into the world this summer! I had a wonderful time with them up at Springhill Pavilion (SUCH a beautiful place!) a few nights ago. These two are very much in love with each other and their baby. I can't wait to meet the little one myself! I had a hard time choosing which images to highlight -- everything about our session was perfect, and it was hard to stop!
Thank you both for the wonderful evening -- your proofs will be finished for you shortly!

Lilly: 9 months | Bozeman Helena Montana Baby Photographer

I got to spend the morning last weekend with one of my baby's first year babies. Lilly is so sweet, curious and WIGGLY! She's been a little wiggle worm since her three month session, and it hasn't changed yet! We spent a couple beautiful hours up at Hyalite Reservoir, dodging snow piles left in shady spots, and soaking up the sun! I can't wait to see these guys again later this summer for Miss Lilly's birthday.

See Lilly grow through her previous sessions: 6 months, 3 months and newborn.

And while you're at it, check out the awesome (and slightly creepy) project that her mom and dad are working on -- the Fear Mine Haunted House!

Estella | Helena Bozeman Montana Newborn Baby Photographer

I'm pretty sure I've said it before... If I had my way, I would photograph newborns all day, every day, for the rest of forever. I just adore them! The love between parents and a new baby is enough to brighten up even the darkest day, and the opportunity to cuddle an itty bitty doesn't hurt, either. Meet Estella, 10 days young.
