Hellooooo! Welcome to MLP!

I’m so glad you love our work and want to know more about the “us” behind the lens:)

 

To start things off – things you should know about me:

  • I’m friendly and enthusiastic and I honestly forget that I’m really short (I round *up* to say I’m 5’3″…doesn’t it sound so better than 5’2.5″?). 
  • I love laughter. 
  • I love to gently tease smiles out of shy kiddos. 
  • I’m endlessly patient during photo sessions and at weddings. 
  • I understand that not everyone is suuuuuuper excited about getting their pictures taken and I know how to work around that (your hubby who is currently groaning about pictures *might* even say “that was actually fun” by the end.  True story:)
  • Plus, I pride myself on being readily available as you prepare for your session or wedding day AND after your session—phone calls, emails, &/or text messages, I’m your girl!

 

I’m an expert with babies and kiddos.  I’ve been a mommy since 2008 (yep – those are our 3 munchkins in the pics above showing you just how, ermmm, *easy & simple* it is to take perfect family pictures;).  And on the career front I’ve a professional photographer since 2009 and a teacher since 2003 so I can honestly say I’ve worked with hundreds of kids. 

I have all kinds of tricks (and patience) up my sleeve to make sure we get gorgeous photos—no matter the personality or the, *ahem*, mood of your child:)  I guarantee {yep, I seriously promise} that you are going to be absolutely thrilled with your images.  If you’re not, we’ll re-do it until it’s right.

 

And now for the images: I love to create vibrant images with clean and classic edits.  I love to tell the story of the moment.  I love to showcase the relationships and love in your family.  I love to make things relaxed and fun (“relaxed” = this photog has been there, done that.  Nooooothing your kids do can shock or upset me.  Refer to image above.  I feel ya sista). 

The images we create from your session or wedding—spontaneous, joyful, beautiful pictures—will be the result of my unique skill set as a photographer and my passion for people.

 

The bottom line is this: extraordinary pictures are created when photography skill is combined with patience, humor, and great relationships.  And that’s what you’ll find at all MLP sessions & weddings: patience, lots of laughter, and my ability to establish genuine relationships with my clients.

 

Oh, and one more thing: I’m a leetle *tiny* bit addicted to smiley faces and exclamation points.  I’m sorry, but every email or text we exchange will pretty much be filled with them….  If that’s a deal breaker I completely understand.  But at least we know now so we can part as friends:)

 

On the other hand, if you don’t mind an abundance of smiley faces and if you think we could be a good fit for your photography needs I would looove to chat.  If you need to know a little more about pricing before you commit to a phone call or an email (I completely understand) click here for portrait pricing or click here for wedding pricing.

 

I would love to hear from you and get started on YOUR fabulous photo session or wedding!  Please call or email any time:

If you were wondering a little bit more about “Us” in MLP, here’s the thirty-second rundown:

  • My hubby Scott (who’s the 2nd photographer for all MLP weddings) loves hunting, scouting for hunting, scouring Google Earth for new hunting spots, and fishing (especially bow fishing, and if it’s bow hunting for paddlefish then he’s doubly happy).
  • Our daughter Claire loves playing playing playing playing with her huuuuuge collection of miniature toys, composing songs on the piano, and anything and everything related to hunting
  • Our boys David & Jake (yep! twins:) love snuggles, playing hide & go seek, tickles with their big sissy, and BOOKS (they’re obsessed. with. books!).
  • As for me, I love reading, bargain shopping, drinking wine with girlfriends, and designing massive house renovations.  And, of course, I love LOVE love photography.  Looooooove.  It.  Yes I do!

Lastly, I should probably throw in some of the “traditional” About Us stuff:

Megan Lane Photography is based out of Helena, MT and we serve all of western Montana including Bozeman, Great Falls, Missoula, Butte, and surrounding areas.  We specialize in wedding photography, newborn pictures, baby & child portraits, Senior pictures, and maternity photography.

We have a big, beautiful studio that’s perfect for all of our snowy Montana months, and we also love to take advantage of all of the fabulous outdoor spaces in Helena and the greater Helena valley so we do lots of our summer & fall sessions outside.

I think that’s a pretty good start to who we are and what we do.  The Megan Lane Photography business/journey/adventure has been such an incredible blessing in our lives–and it’s even more special because we get to share it with all of you!

 

Thanks for stopping by–I hope we get to work on some fabulous pictures together SOON!!:)
