Studio Portrait Headshots for Tracy McDowell

I met Tracy through my work with Alpine Theatre Project here in Whitefish, having photographed her performing in multiple productions from the annual "Yuletide Affair," and tributes to big band era music, the queens of country music, and well, "Queen."

It was a pleasure to get to work with her on some updated headshots for her portfolio. Largely because she's just awesome to work with, but also because it gave me a chance to exercise some photo skills I don't necessarily use on a day-to-day basis. That being of a studio portrait setup. I broke out my backdrops, my studio flash setup, and we cleared some space at ATP's rehearsal space to make some magic. Hair and makeup were done by Sieh Beauty.

You can see her on stage next month in ATP's production of "Million Dollar Quartet."

Elope Montana Portraits, your all-woman-owned business elopement specialists

Some of my friends and fellow wedding-industry colleagues started an all-woman-owned business collective to provide all-inclusive elopements here in Northwest Montana. It's simply and effectively called Elope Montana.

One day Lindsey asked if I'd be open to doing some updated portraits for the growing team, and I of course jumped at the opportunity. As stressful as it may be working with other photographers, it was a blast to turn the champaign-popping shenanigans on those that often make others do so.
