Tracy Moore Photography bio picture
  • There is never enough chocolate, red bull, or white cheddar popcorn.

    To me, a no trespassing sign means it’s probably an awesome location for a shoot.

    I also believe a roped off slope on the mountain means there’s more
    powder for me and I don’t have to share.

    There’s a really sneaky way to cut the whole line on the Pirates of the
    Caribbean ride at Disneyland. If you want to know it… come with me.

    My family is pretty into board games, that’s one of my favorite things to do when I go back and visit. Except for Monopoly… that always ends badly.

    One of my dreams is to cage dive with great white sharks.
    I want to look one straight in the eye.

    I’m notorious for starting random dance parties at stressful times to lighten the mood a little.

    So... there's a little about me. Now I want to know about you! So let's go grab coffee...
    or even better- a meal. And by meal I mean Sushi. :)

Hope everyone had an AMAZING summer!!

That’s all for now… I’ll update more soon, I promise!

{Miranda & Chris :: 10 Year Anniversary!} (Billings Montana Photographer)

Miranda is one of my favorite girls on this planet. She is so sweet, so talented, always makes everyone laugh and is just a pure joy to be around. I have known her for years now, and we see a lot of each other since we share an office space, we both love our jobs as photographers, and we hang with the same crazy crowd. She and her hubby, Chris just celebrated their 10 year anniversary and to make it extra special… she came up with a great plan. We were to meet to do an “Anniversary Photoshoot” and afterwards, they were going to a nice dinner to celebrate. At least, that’s what Miranda let Chris to believe. After our first location, she asked if we could take pictures at Pioneer Park, I played along and said that sounds like a wonderful idea. Well… when they pulled up to the park, there waited tons of their family and friends for a surprise Anniversary party. They had a band, they danced under sparkly lights, and Chris had no idea that Miranda had been planning this. It was so adorable, and so well thought out. Good job, Miranda. No wonder you guys are still madly in love after 10 years… you guys inspire me!

Here is a sneak peek at some of the images:

Love you, Miranda! Thanks for being such an amazing friend.

 

{Baby Fever :: Arielle & Richard Maternity Shoot} (Billings Montana Photographer)

I normally don’t shoot maternity pictures anymore… but Arielle is a very close friend of mine, and I knew she’d be the most adorable pregnant girl ever.

Matt and I have known Arielle & Richard for a couple years now and we love them to pieces.

They love to fish with us, hangout, watch movies, go to amusement parks, road trip, go wakeboarding, and so much more.

I met them after they called to meet with me about shooting their wedding. I was a wreck when they came to my house to meet me. I can’t really remember what happened… either I just pulled a Tracy and forgot about the meeting somehow, or I made up an excuse that my calender wasn’t working… or maybe I blamed it on my poor studio manager, Steph. Either way, they sat there with me while I looked like a frazzled hobo, and proceeded to book me for their big day. I was a little surprised, but soooo grateful. I knew we’d become great friends, and I am so thankful for them.

Arielle is due this September and I cannot wait to meet their little girl. She is by far the biggest push I have to start a family of my own… Matt is totally on board.

Once your friends start having kids, something just triggers in you… your ovaries start screaming out “You need a baby! Now!”… woah… calm down ovaries… it’s a big decision.

But, thanks to these two… we are thinking about it more and more.

We shot their maternity shoot out at Wildflower Gardens, my favorite wedding venue! Arielle works there, and the owner,

Janine is a great friend of mine. So I was very lucky to have a such an amazing location to shoot at.

Enjoy your sneak peek, you two!! Love you guys!!!

Richard was helping her pose…

 

Brittney’s Senior Pictures :: Paddle Board Fun! {Billings Montana Senior Photographers}

Brittney is such a doll. She is outgoing, fun, always smiling, and loves adventure. One of her hobbies is paddle boarding… well actually… doing YOGA on a paddle board. Crazy, right?! I’m taking one of their classes this September and I can’t wait! Her mother and her and a friend teach the classes at Lake Elmo, I think there are a couple spots left if you want to check it out here!

I had so much fun hanging with Brittney, her mom and her friend (and another one of my amazing clients), Holly. These girls are a blast and we had so much fun running all around downtown, some beautiful locations near the Heights, and ended it at Lake Elmo on the paddle board!

Enjoy your sneak peek, Brittney. You are an amazing, kind & beautiful girl and I am so glad I got to take these pictures for you!!! Can’t wait to go paddle boarding together!!

One more thing!

Chance Robinson :: Painting with Passion {Billings Montana Photographer}

Chance is one of those people that just draws you in the second you meet him. He is one of the nicest guys I have ever met, and once he starts talking about his passion for art, you are lost in his stories and never want to return to reality. Matt and I recently got to spend an evening with Chance at his amazing studio. He showed us lots of his work, told us stories of how he first started on this journey, and opened our eyes to his magical world of art & passion.

Many of you here in Billings (and now, all over the country!), have heard of him. Chances are, you have seen his work somewhere, and were in awe like the rest of us. He has worked so hard to get to where he is, and I am so impressed with what he has already accomplished. He sold a single painting at a live auction for $22,000. He  has donated over $70,000 to charity since he started selling his art. He has attended one of the most prestigious art schools in the country. With all this adventure, success, and drive, I am so amazed at how kind, humble & sincere he remains.

Chance, you are one of a kind. You have been so blessed to find your passion so young in life, and I know you will follow your dreams, and keep blowing us all away with your passion, your art, and your love.

Here are some images we shot last week of him working at his studio and a few portrait shots as well. Now that he’s getting requests to have his art sold all over the country… he needed some updated images for his website. I was happy to do that for him!:)

Go check out his website to see some of his incredible work here: http://www.chanceart.net/
