    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. :)

Sunday {Church & Football}

It’s Sunday… for some of you that means sleeping in and heading to brunch then watching TV all day. Some of you may be outdoors enjoying a fun adventure. For us, it’s usually church then football. We haven’t been the best at having a great attendance record at church… but we try.

Today, while sitting in church listening to Vern talk about Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well, I noticed a few things… most churches share the following traits:

- The worship lead singers always have great hair. Spiked/Styled/Hair-sprayed to perfection. 

- The pastors always seem to have really nice, expensive jeans with a washed out style. They usually also have great hair. 

- There are really nice people standing by every door opening them for you with a huge smile. I think they drink redbull and take happy pills before service starts. 

- Usually, there is a sweet old lady that sings WAY too loud and you try not to be distracted but you can’t help it. You go, old lady… sing your heart out. 

- There are always those people who play candy crush on their cell phones but try to hide it from everyone. We see you… we always see you. I have to admit, this is sometimes me. 

I’m sure there are many more common things that churches have in common… please add yours in the comments!!

Also… GO BRONCOS!

 

 

There’s a New Store in Town! {Francesca’s Rimrock Mall Billings Montana}

Happy Friday!

A few months ago, I was in Colorado shopping with a friend and came across Francesca’s in Briargate. I fell in love with the store and found tons of goodies. Adorable, fashionable clothes, awesome jewelry, tons of headbands (which ya’ll know I am obsessed with) and lots of great little gifts for friends.

I was SO excited when I heard that they had just opened a store right here in Billings at the Rimrock Mall! It’s such a fun little boutique and the Manager, Alona is super sweet! Go in, check it out, and tell her hello! If you say I sent you in there, they will give you 10% off your purchase! Pretty sweet, huh?!

I am LOVING what my senior girls have found there and worn to their photo shoots. Such cute stuff. I want it all!;)

Another fun fact… they only carry a very limited number of each style and size, so you know you are getting something not everyone will have. I promise you are going to love it.

Here is a shot from a recent senior shoot I had with Kera, she is rocking a dress, kimono &  headband (in the 2nd image) from Francesca’s! How cute is she?!

Cassie got her cute earrings from there, too. Adorbs.

Welcome to Billings, Francesca’s. We are so excited to have you and can’t wait to find more great goodies there!!

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…
