I was so very excited to be able to take the Richardson family photos while they were visiting BigFork. It was the first time they had taken photos together as a family since the kids were little and now that they’re grown and in college it was a perfect opportunity to capture this special time in their lives.
The day of their photo shoot there was a very eerie heaviness in the valley … The smoke had completely taken over which meant we had very beautiful even light for their pictures but I was worried. Since they had traveled here for vacation I really wanted to show off the amazing views in their photos but the mountains were completely missing and you could only see out a few feet from the lake shore. We made up for the mountains by going down by the river and getting some views of hanging rock and when we arrived at the lake it was still very beautiful from the shore. They were not bothered by our conditions at all…they were just so happy to be together on vacation and all that mattered to them was getting photos taken together.
There session was perfect and they were so fun to be around. What an amazing family. This was a great reminder for me that although we do have amazing views here, at the end of the day what we do is capture families, moments, create memories…that’s what is most important and I love that I get to be a part of it.
Thank you Richardson’s for choosing me to capture your sweet family while on vacation here. Please come back and see us soon!
