Ashton's Senior Model Session | Helena, Montana Senior Photographer

I had such a great time downtown with Ashton and her Mom earlier this week! Ashton is one of Zo-Mak Photography's senior reps for Helena High Class of 2013 -- so this was the first of two sessions she'll have with me.  This first model session was just an opportunity for her to get used to the camera, strut her stuff and see how much fun we'll have at her full session later this Spring!  

As a rep, Ashton's already receiving great discounts on her session fees, and she'll earn free prints and products, have an opportunity to win an iPad (I don't even have one!), AND have tons of fun! (Did I mention that she'll come away with fun, modern, unique senior portraits?)  All this just for hanging out with me, making awesome senior portraits together, then telling her friends about her experience and sending them my way to see for themselves!  Not a bad gig, eh?

As you can see, she rocked this session, and I can't wait to get together with her again in the near future for even more.  What I love best is that she came with a great attitude, open for anything, and really gave it her all!  She told me in the beginning that she wasn't sure what to do; not really sure how to be a model.  That's what I love -- that anyone can do it!  

Sound like something you'd like to check out?  I still have opportunities available for senior reps -- if you or someone you know might be interested, send them my way!  I'd love to chat about the benefits and all the awesome free stuff you can get!  Email me at, or head over to my website to check out the senior gallery there, then complete the contact form.  (Or you're always welcome to do it the old fashioned way -- give me a buzz 406-600-2879).

Here you go, Ashton!  Enjoy this first round of pictures.  Can't wait to see you again for more.

Baker Family | Helena Montana Family Photographer

I recently traveled down to Bozeman for a family session that has been in the works for quite some time.  I'm so happy that the timing worked out the way it did; it was a beautiful evening, and such a special family.  We spent some time at their home to include grandma, then headed down to a beautiful outdoor spot with the dogs -- mountain vistas, beautiful evening light and a lovely family.  I couldn't have asked for more!!

Thank you, Baker family, for this opportunity.  It was so refreshing to spend time with you and spend some time in your lives with you.  What beautiful memories we have made.

The album from their session is coming together beautifully - I can't wait to see it in print!!

Spring and summer are the perfect time for lovely outdoor family sessions like this one. If you'd like to talk about making beautiful memories like these for your family, drop a note or give a call. ( ~ 406-600-2879). Hop on over to my website to peruse the family gallery and get an idea of what beautiful images you could come away with.  I look forward to hearing from you soon!

The Parrot Confectionery | Helena, Montana Commercial Photographer

As if just visiting The Parrot Confectionery wasn't enough... 

Now I've had the chance to photograph it!  Yay!

Next time you're downtown on the walking mall, be sure to stop by the Parrot (42 North Last Chance Gulch) to check out all their awesomely yummy Easter confections -- and don't forget to check out the window display - photos by Zo-Mak Photography!  Homemade ice cream, dozens of different chocolates and candies, sodas that will take you back in time, and chili that will warm your insides -- it's one of those places that you'll feel instantly at home.

I'm so excited to be a part of the marketing and advertising for The Parrot.  Owned by Kelly and Brian Ackerman, it's a super fun, laid back place to hang out with friends and family.  The best part is that it's just the same now as it was 90 years ago when it first opened.  It's a great piece of Helena history, and a spot that everyone should discover.

Stop by on a Friday evening from 6-8 for game night -- you'll find board games for the whole family supplied by Lasso The Moon (25 S Last Chance Gulch).  And don't forget to bring some quarters for the kiddos to choose songs all night from the jukebox as they gobble down the popcorn and ice cream.

Keep an eye out for news coming shortly about The Parrot's 90th birthday -- all sorts of fun stuff on the horizon!

Model Search! | Helena, Montana Photographer

Model Search!

I'm honored to be shooting product again for Maranda Lee Designs and the original Hot Mama Handbags!  

Check out Maranda's facebook page, like her stuff, then let me know if you'd be interested in participating in the photo session as a model.  I'm looking for fun, fashionable moms with babies (under a year -- older siblings OK) who would be available in the next couple weeks for a photoshoot in downtown Helena.  

Respond to this post on facebook or to this blog post then email a photo of you and your kids, along with a short explanation of why you'd make a good model to:

Ready, GO!  

Tell your friends about it and send them this way if you know someone who would rock this opportunity!

(Model search will go through March 30th, with the photo shoot taking place in the first half of April).
