I know I must sound like a broken record with these blog posts, especially for family portraits, but I try to speak only the truth! I may be an introvert at heart, but I truly enjoy getting to meet families from other parts of the country, particularly when it is multiple generations of said families. Being able to see them all together and documenting their time here in Montana through photography really is lots of fun and I am fortunate to be able to do so. The Schneiders were no different, and they were all spending time together at a lovely rental in Lakeside. Smoke unfortunately mostly obscured any views of Flathead Lake we may have had otherwise, but we made do with the surrounding area and I'd say the results speak for themselves. Also, puppies! I will never discourage anyone from bringing their dogs with them for family portraits because after all, they are part of the family. As long as it is legal to do so of course, there are places inside National Parks you are not allowed to bring your four-legged friends.
