Birthday girls! | Helena, Montana Child Photographer

As I'm sure you know, I have a special place in my heart for sisters. Especially sisters who are just about two years apart. Meet K&J -- two adorable little cuties celebrating their first and third birthdays within days of each other. They traveled from Butte to come see me for their birthday photos. I must say they gave me a run for my money -- they totally made me work for it! But it was awesome, and they're beautiful and I'm so happy with how the images turned out. I quickly gave up on the "is there a bug on my head????!!!!" to get them to look my way, and instead followed them around (a million miles an hour!) just snapping away and capturing *them* being *them*.

Happy birthday, girls!

Hope to see you again when you're 2 and 4 (or before - who knows!)

Sylar is One | Helena, MT Baby Photographer

Well, this past Sunday was a popular day for photos! I met Sylar and his Mama at Reeders Alley for his birthday session, and we ran into three other groups there doing photos as well! It's such a gem - so many great little spots for wonderful backdrops. Can't wait to do my family mini sessions there later this fall!

When I first started thinking about this session, I knew I wanted to have a few props. I generally don't do many props at all, but this little guy and this location... the antique typewriter all but jumped off the shelf at me when I was perusing the antique shop last week! did the phone, the tractor, the old coffee cans and books... And I have to admit - as cute as those shots were, I still just absolutely adore shots of him being himself.

Happy Birthday, little guy! Hope to see you and your beautiful mom again soon!

Lilly is One! | Helena, MT Baby Photographer

Another of my baby's first years comes to an end! I love having all these birthday kiddos this summer - it's so fun to watch them grow up and capture such special memories for their families.

The story from this session: The cake smash that wasn't. Cutest cake ever -- a 4 1/2" tall pink and purple panda bear sitting on top of a purple cake covered with balloons. Couldn't get her to touch it with a ten-foot pole! Oh, and the balloons... Who wants balloons when there is a perfectly exciting chunk of wood to check out?! Love this kid. Thank you, mom & dad, for allowing me to participate in this year with you guys!

Baby Gracelyn | Helena, Montana Newborn Photographer

Aaaaaaah, babies. Everyone knows I love the cuddly, sweet smelling, soft and cozy little ones...... Little Miss Gracelyn is no exception! She reminded me a lot of my oldest daughter - the round chubby face, the thick tummy and chunky legs. Aaaaaaah. So perfect.

Holiday Mini Session - Updates | Helena Mt Family Holiday Photographer

It's my favorite time of year!!!

I know, I know. It's only September. But Christmas really is right around the corner. Before you know it, we'll be building snowmen instead of forts, sledding instead of slip-n-sliding, and searching for the perfect gift for grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles. Trust me.
