It was a beautiful but chilly evening, much colder than I had anticipated when I met up with this darling girl and her mother. All of the days leading up to this one had been warm and sunny, calling for short sleeves and flip-flops. But true to its nature, Montana showed us that spring here is a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs with regard to the temperature and sunshine. Sure enough, the afternoon had grown chillier and the mountains were shrouded in misty clouds, beautiful and gray and low, hiding all of the snow-covered peaks. So we got this sweet munchkin bundled up in a cozy cashmere sweater, fantastic tulle skirt, awesome brown boots, and a warm beanie hat. We were ready to go on a walk among the towering evergreens and silver sagebrush. So, walk we did, and I got to spend a lovely bit of an evening with this precious little girl and her stunning mama. xoxo
I had the great pleasure this past winter to work with an amazing calligraphic artist named Rachel Jacobson, who helped me design a new logo for my business. The process was fascinating to me, as she delved into why I wanted to bring a new look to my website. She asked many questions, and my own answers forced me to take a deep look at what I wish the blog to be and to become — a place not just to post sneak peeks, but to engage in conversation or to share what I’m thinking about, regardless of whether it has to do with photos or life in general. The resulting design she came up with couldn’t have been more perfect for me, and so here today, I’m introducing the new logo that will begin to infiltrate my work. The idea behind the new name for the blog “All The Little Wild Things” is that I want to encompass all of the crazy-beautiful-wild things about life; and in pictures, this covers everything in my mind from the tiniest littles to the high school seniors to the octogenarians I admire. I wanted a name for this other than my own name, as I feel that it gives me more freedom to express myself in a multitude of ways, so at some point in the very near future, you’ll begin to see the title “All The Little Wild Things” at the top of the blog page instead of my name alone.
Sun and snow, lens flares and big mountains — all as the backdrop for one incredibly beautiful young woman’s senior session. I loved this afternoon of shooting and look forward to showing the rest of the lovely images from this day’s session! xoxo
Had an awesome afternoon and great conversations with this handsome and funny young man! Love the way his senior pictures are coming along — too many good ones to choose from.
This was such a great session — we started out with what seemed to be decent weather, but the clouds quickly moved in and began to look serious. That picture up there in which this lovely young lady is laughing — well, she’s laughing at the rain. God I love her attitude! We had already had to reschedule once due to inclement weather, so I was hopeful that our weather would hold out on this day. And it did…..but juuuust barely. 😉 I don’t know when the last time was that I laughed so hard while hearing what a client has been up to, but this girl is pretty awesome and had a great story for me. Makes me smile right now just to think about it. I absolutely loved photographing this beautiful young woman and can’t wait to show her more of the images! Cheers, Pam
A simply stunning session with this beautiful young woman. I loved spending time with her — she’s soft spoken and kind and just a lovely person to be around. These are just a few of the wonderful images from our time together. Enjoy!
What a terrific session with this beautiful young woman! Once again, there were so many great images to choose from that I finally just had to narrow them down and post them! Many more to come….
(And yes, since I know people will ask me, that lens flare in the final image is real.)
Here are a few first looks at this incredibly gorgeous senior session a few days ago. These are just the tip of the iceberg — there are so many beautiful images of this young woman! Cheers, Pam
Sometimes there are no words to describe how much I love a session — this is one of those times. I love the natural beauty of this young woman, and her smile and her laugh and her kind spirit. Truly a wonderful afternoon. xo, Pam
I absolutely loved this session and had such a great time with this beautiful young woman! Cheers, Pam
