Reuel | Bend, Oregon and Great Falls, Montana Newborn Photographer

The Kunz family have been in my life for many years now. They were one of my first clients and we've gone from engagement, wedding, bridal and now maternity and newborn pictures of their son Reuel Joseph. He is a winter baby, meaning Amanda's maternity were too. The Kunz family and I got together in the middle of winter at the park in freezing snow and blistering negative temperature winds. We all drank hot cocoa and laughed pretending we were at the beach. 
Next, little Reuel was born and we did a short and newborn session capture their love for their new family member.

Hockey Rink Engagement Session | Great Fall, MT | Christina + Cameron Engaged

An amazing backstory of this engagement session that was written by the bride -
"We picked the Great Falls Americans hockey rink to have our engagement photos because of how our engagement started. Cameron is a huge hockey fan (the Colorado Avalanche) and wanted to make his proposal something very special and unique. After the game, Cameron brought me down to the glass and said: "Now every time we watch an Avs game on tv we can see this spot and remember how amazing this moment is." He got down on one knee and said "I can't think of a more perfect place than my favorite my place to ask my favorite person in the world to be my wife. Will you marry me?" It was so unexpected coming from someone who never wanted to get married and that some how there was something about me that changed his mind. I was so surprised and excited of course I said yes!! We were extremely excited to find such a fantastic photographer to run with our idea and be able to include my som in our photos. Special thank you to Ariel Dawn photography and Jim and the guys at the Great Falls Americans Ice Plex for making the perfect engagement shoot possible!"

Shawn & Treyson | Family Portrait Session | Great Falls, Montana Portrait Photographer

Shawn and Treyson had a fun father and son portrait session in Black Eagle, Montana. Shawn and Treyson showed me some of their favorite spots to go on adventures together.  

I adore the matching converse these two are wearing! 

When your photographing a family session running is always involved. 

Treyson did an amazing job during the portrait session! 

piggyback rides and fall leaves are the best at family sessions.

Shawn and Treyson are huge fans of old cars, so we had to take some pictures with some! :D
