When I arrived at this newborn shoot, I was instantly intrigued with Beau and Madison’s historic Helena home. Built in the late 1800s, their home is nestled on a quiet street in Helena, where one can hear kids playing in the backyards and an occasional dog barking at a pesky squirrel.

Montana was showing off for this engagement session.
