G & G – Twin Newborn Pictures – Helena, MT Photographer

Posted by on in Baby Pictures

Once upon a time (in 2012) Scott and I photographed a gorgeous wedding at Lakeside Ranch.  It was an amazing day filled with love and laughter and we had so much fun working with James & Ashley and their family and friends.

Soooooo when I got the call from Ashley this fall telling me that she and James were PREGNANT – with TWINS – after a long journey to become parents…!!!!  Ya’ll – I’m not going to lie.  I got a little teary-eyed!  We too know what it’s like to wait and wait for the blessing of a baby, and we too know the joy of TWINS!  Eeeeeeek!

And then Ashley told me that they wanted ME to take their newborn pictures {and I *may* have done a little hop for excitement}.  Thank goodness I had done my own boys’ newborn session when we brought them home – because, let me tell ya, twin newborn sessions are not for the faint of heart!

But these two cuties came to the MLP studio and ROCKED their session.  Legit – rocked it.

While Mr. G was awake and loving life, Miss G was sleeeeeeephy and squishy.  And then when Miss G woke up for a snack, Mr. G was most accommodating and fell into a deep sleep.

This photog was NOT going to complain about that;)

And now, it is my distinct honor to present G & G in their worldwide debut {cue alllllllll the up-tilting “awwww’s”}.

 

I truly don’t know what I love most about this photo – Miss G’s peeeeerfectly round tiny tummy, her little hands laying *just so*, or the negative space that emphasizes her sweet newborn tiny-ness.

Jared & Elizabeth – Elegant New Year’s Eve Wedding – Big Fork & Kalispell Wedding Photographers

Posted by on in Wedding Photography

I am lucky to know Jared & Elizabeth not only through a year and half of wedding dreaming and planning, but also on a much more personal level.  Jared took over my classroom when our twins were born in the spring of 2015 and he did an AMAZING job with my students (and he did super thoughtful things like leaving a “Welcome Back” balloon for me when I came back to school to teach for a couple days – I mean, seriously?! – so amazing!).  He was then hired to teach biology in the classroom right next door to me, so now we are teaching partners (he’s also my life saver when I’ve had to take a couple emergency sick days over these past two years!).  Needless to say I was SO excited when they picked us for their wedding photographers. !!  And as Elizabeth and I talked and texted and worked on details – and after their ahhhhhhmazing “haute couture” Engagement Session – which you can check out HERE) – I just got more and more ridiculously excited for this wedding.

These guys picked New Year’s Eve because they wanted to throw an elegant black-tie bash.  And it was definitely elegant.  And definitely a bash!  But what I love love LOVED most about their wedding was that after allllllll of that planning, Jared & Elizabeth showed up on their wedding day and they fully immersed themselves in the moment.  There was no stressing.  No angst.  No worrying about the details.

There was just love.

Love and relationships and laughter.

I have goosebumps right now just thinking about it…!

Because it’s those days that we love to capture.

 

And I’m not ashamed to admit that as Jared & Elizabeth exchanged vows on that cold cold New Year’s Eve night, I had tears in my eyes.  Happy happy tears for this awesome awesome couple.

And the pictures.

Well.

Those.

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Enjoy!

Then there was this one time that the bouquet got stuck in the balloon drop…. So a quick rescue lift was organized.

And no one died.

And then there was this OTHER time that the garter toss involved a football.  And Scott captured every moment behind the group of jostling guys, right up until he caught the football….

With his camera.

No one can say we don’t go all-in for the shot! Ahahaaaa!!

{{{and thankfully our cameras are tough, so no camera died capturing this moment – #doublewinning}}}

Jared & Elizabeth had given us a heads-up that there would be a balloon drop at midnight.  So we set up a long exposure shot with a little off-camera flash to capture this magical moment for our New Year’s Eve couple.

My other favorite shot of the day was the happy couple in front of the church.

Cause our couples are cool enough to trust us when we say “Soooo…do you guys wanna go out in the sub-zero weather for some church shots? We think they will turn out ahhhhhmazing!!!!”

And – they did.

Yaaaaaasssss!!!!

Josh & Allison – Winter Engagement Pictures – Helena, MT Wedding Photographers

Posted by on in Engagement Pictures

Josh and Allison asked if we could do their engagement pictures where Josh proposed to Allison – and of course I looooved that idea.  Little did I know that when we arrived I would love the location even MORE (it’s Allison’s parent’s property and the barns and outbuildings are original to the property, **swoon**).  With all of this crazy below-zero weather and snow snow snow we’ve been having in Helena lately we were all crossing our fingers {and toes and eyeballs} that the weather would cooperate (i.e. that we wouldn’t lose the aforementioned finger & toes &/or freeze to death during the shoot) and although it was a leetle bit chilly (ok, a lot bit chilly) I think it’s safe to say that it was DEFINITELY worth the numb fingers and snow down our shoes and freezing noses.

Cause, seriously.  These pics.

!!!

Love love love.
