MCANALLY FAMILY | BIGFORK MONTANA FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

All boy, all blue and eyes for days with these five; I was so excited to spend a fall afternoon with this beautiful family to play among the leaves, be a little silly, and just capture them together.

Seems like not too long ago we were ripping up the basketball and volleyball courts at Bigfork High School together T.R.; I can’t believe we are all grown-up with kids of our own. It was such an honor and joy to capture your sweet family and you are the perfect Mom for those amazing boys. Your crew is feisty and sweet, thoughtful and fun, and I am so happy for you and Les.

Thanks McAnally family for being so very fun to hang out with and for choosing me… xoxo Shawna

ELIZABETH | POLSON SENIOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

My very first senior from Polson High School and I am so blessed this sweet girl found me. Elizabeth is stunning and really impressed me with her amazing attitude and kindness. These qualities I believe go hand in hand with being a part of a cheer squad. Seriously, cheerleaders are amazing athletes but the extra bonus you get from this sport is the great attitude and “cheerfulness” that you learn from being a part of a cheer team……Today, choose joy my friends…. oh and give a cheerleader a hug 😉

Elizabeth was such a joy to hang out with; beautiful inside and out. She came up to Bigfork for her session and although it was pretty windy we had such beautiful light the whole time. So thankful our crazy weather held out for her and we didn’t get rained out.

Elizabeth, I wish you all the best for your senior year and beyond……keep shining that amazing light you have, it does not go unnoticed.

xoxo Shawna

HARRISON | GLACIER HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

I have not had a senior session this season that I have not left feeling excited and in awe of how amazing the senior was. The talent, drive, goals, and life outlook of the young people in our community is insanely inspiring.

I absolutely felt this way about my session with this amazing young man. Spending just a few hours with Harrison only gave me a small insight into what a great guy he is but I know he is going places and God has huge plans for him.

Harrison is pretty chill and super go with the flow but also an amazing leader serving as student body president at Glacier High School as well as part of the debate team. Just talking about his classes, student body ideas, and plans for the future had my head reeling.

Harrison, I am so very impressed. Wishing you an amazing senior year and thanks for being you.

MINAE | BIGFORK MONTANA SENIOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

Remember fall? The season that we love so very much and always seems to get cut WAYYYY too short?

I am trying to stop complaining over here but it might take me a bit to adjust to our new winter wonderland. I do so love winter portraits I just haven’t mentally made that switch yet. For now I am just going to keep closing myself in the office, with no windows, and stare at all the fall portrait sessions I have had the last few weeks.

Minae’s senior portrait session was one of the most colorful I had this season. It was perfect timing and I am so glad the fall colors were in full view for this sweet girl. She is silly, and sweet and I could hang out with her all the time; what an amazing young person. We had so much fun touring around Bigfork and even got her adorable puppy and her little brothers in on a few.

Thank you Minae for trusting me with your portraits and I hope you have an amazing senior year!

xoxo Shawna

SLITER FAMILY | GLACIER NATIONAL PARK FAMILY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

The Sliter family and I have been talking about family portraits in Glacier for the last few years and we finally did it!

I have loved every location we have been to but was so excited to escape the valley with them and go to a place that we all love so very much. This time of year the water at the river is low enough that we were able to adventure out onto the rocks, throw rocks into the water, and enjoy all the beautiful fall colors in the background. We even made it up to Lake Mcdonald to conclude our session and were so surprised to see the fire still smoldering on the distant ridge….I thought for sure it would be out by now. But we were also surprised to be greeted by a huge storm rolling across the Lake, it was not suppose to rain! But we waited it out and although it was pretty darn windy after that we were able to soak in a few views from the lakeshore before heading back home.

These three kiddos are so fun and it has been amazing being a part of their lives. Watching them grow in height of course is apparent but each year I spend time with them individually I love to see their every changing personalities. The oldest really shook me this year…I was so shocked to see that she is no longer the little girl I remember her as from last year. It kinda seems like she changed overnight (insert mixed feelings about this). The middle kiddo, he just cracks me up, so smart and so silly, love spending time with him. Then Mr. personality himself, the baby of the family, he was extra fun to photograph this year…so many expressions and so very much to say. Silly stories and concerns about the dangers of being on rocks…he is adorable.

I love being able to capture these important years of growth for families, especially for those that have been such close friends for so many years. The friendship that has grown with this sweet family is very near to my heart and I look forward to the next 10 years.

Sliter family thank you for making the trek to Glacier this year, for allowing me to be a part of your yearly family portrait adventure, and for being so very much fun to photograph. I cherish our time together every year and love watching everyone grow leaps and bounds.

xoxo, Shawna
