Cameron – Kalispell Senior Portrait Photography

Such an honor to take senior portraits for Cameron.

I have known his family for a long time now and they are ALL very near and dear to my heart. Because I know them so well I also know how much Cameron does not enjoy getting his photo taken. In fact, he was the first senior of mine to say “I only need 1 shirt because all I need is 1 photo”. Fortunately, Cameron knows that is not how I roll and allowed me to take much more than 1 shot. I think he was just giving me, and his Mom, a hard time.

You certainly wouldn’t know his dislike of photos by looking through his session; he rocked it.

Thanks Cameron for having me take your senior portraits. Here are a few of my favs:







Kaitlyn – Kalispell Senior Portrait Photography

You know how you meet those kind of people that just make you smile even when you are having a crummy day? The type of person that you know is going to have a positive impact on the world no matter where they are or who they are with. That is the type of person Kaitlyn is. She is so sweet and so inspiring and there is no doubt she is going to do amazing things. I was honored to get to take her senior photos and feel very blessed to have her in my life. Excited to see what the next chapter brings…..




Chana is 2

I can’t believe Chana is already 2! Not to sound cliche but it really does seem like yesterday when she was in the studio as a tiny little baby:

Now she is 2 and oh so busy. As always I had a great time hanging out with her and her Mommy; we had a bunch of laughs and took a ton of photos. Here are a few of my favs:


I can’t help it, I love this one. Chana decided she had enough photos so she turned her back to me, crossed her arms, and said “NO” in the cutest voice ever.
