The earthy tones in this lifestyle newborn session fit the subjects. The first time I met Shelby and Cody was in their beautiful Helena home on the morning of their newborn shoot. They were the most down-to-earth people who made me feel instantly comfortable with their kind and relaxed demeanor. I teased them that they […]

Montana Spring Lifestyle Session

March 20, 2019


From their engagement shoot in the COLDEST temperatures I have EVER shot in, to their beautiful and romantic fall wedding ceremony, I felt like I had done it all with Courtney and Jeff. Until, I got the phone call that they were expecting a baby!! Like our previous past choices on shoots–I chose one of […]

Helena Newborn Lifestyle Shoot

February 27, 2019


Engagement sessions in winter can be interesting…and fairly painful… That’s why you have a car (running with the heater full-blast) about 10 feet away from you at all times. Then, winter engagement shoots are not only bearable, but OH so worth it! The light in winter is a soft even light due to the snow […]

Montana Lifestyle Newborn Shoot

January 28, 2019


We may or may not have frozen our buns off for this January maternity shoot in the wee morning hours. Frost covered every blade of grass and blanketed the hillside below Mt. Helena to make for the most stunning backdrop anyone could ask for. I waited in my pick up, heat blasting as high as […]

Montana is made for weddings. There are few places in the world as beautiful, serene, and peaceful as Montana. When I was asked to capture this wedding for a Missoula couple, I jumped on the chance because a winter wedding in this gorgeous state–what photographer could pass that up?! This couple shares a love not […]

Doubletree Hilton Missoula Wedding

2018 was a breakthrough year for me concerning shooting seniors…I never really thought I’d want to dive into the world of seniors, but after last year…senior photography is my jam! I think that I finally found what makes my heart flutter again and I am planning on diving in even deeper for 2020 seniors! I […]

Best of 2018: Seniors

December 27, 2018


I love going full circle with clients. It all started with Courtney and Jake’s wedding inquiry, which led to their bitter cold 6 degree engagement shoot that was about this time two years ago in downtown Helena. Fast forward to their beautiful fall cathedral wedding last October which was one of my FAVORITE weddings to […]

Montana Winter Maternity Shoot

I tried a new venture this year…seniors. And guess what… I LOVED it. I mean, like…really enjoyed it. Like Christmas morning enjoyed it! I genuinely loved getting to meet so many beautiful (and insanely talented) young ladies in our amazing community.  They filled my soul with hope and excitement–after the first senior shoot, I was […]

Montana Senior Spokesmodels–Kelly Van Dyke Photography

December 14, 2018


To be clear…this shoot was 34 degrees. In November. In Montana…And this mama-to-be showed up with a smile on her face and was ready to freeeeeeze. Should I add more ee’s on that one? If you were there…you’d agree that word needs at least three more. But can you tell from her beautiful smile? Nope. […]
