When Erica messaged me about doing Jack’s pictures, I was taken aback at the thought that it was possible for Jack to be a senior already! I swear, years go by so fast that I don’t even realize it, and then it slaps me in the face! Nonetheless, we were super excited to get to […]

I don’t know why Denton and I get to be blessed with such wonderful couples, but all I can say is I’m so grateful! We first started communicating with Brittany last year around this same time when she had just began looking for a photographer. Boy, am I glad that we made that connection! At […]

I’m so happy to be writing this today! Denton and I photographed this family session the day before we left on a 18 day road trip to see our families and do some business. Usually my workflow is pretty spot on with a sneak peek, blog highlights, and gallery link, but this time I got […]

I’ve had the privilege and fun of photographing Scott + Jessica and their family for a couple years now, and we always look forward to it! It’s amazing to see how the kids grow year to year, and how fast changes happen! Because of that, Scott + Jessica have a wonderful goal- they said they […]

Congratulations to Jami! She will be graduating in the spring from Wolf Point High School! Woohoo! Jami’s mom was on the ball and reached out to me earlier in the spring about scheduling Jami’s senior session for the fall. We wanted some fall color and foliage, so we agreed to keep in touch and make […]

I am soooo excited to be able to share these- they’ve been a long time coming! Karesha and I have been in touch for over a year, trying to sync schedules and make it work to get together for a session- it’s crazy to believe that it’s been that long! This year, however, we were […]
