Whitefish Family Photographer, The Oaks

I've had the pleasure of working with Nikki in the past through her son's involvement with Alpine Theater Project, and through school district fundraisers so it was an honor to be asked to do a family portrait session with them this summer. We made a quick trip to Whitefish City Beach on a beautiful summer day here in Northwest Montana for a mini-session and it couldn't have been more pleasant.

Whitefish Family Photographer, The Feinbergs

Like the majority of my family portrait clients, each summer the Feinbergs were visiting our amazing corner of the country and wanted to be sure to sneak in some family photos in order to document the occasion. We actually split their portrait session into basically two portrait sessions, with the first being focused just on the children in and around downtown Whitefish, and then family photos—sneaking grandma into some—at Whitefish City Beach at sunset. As you can tell, Montana was showing off on this amazing mid-summer evening.

Whitefish Family Photographer, Debbie’s Family Reunion

Debbie contacted me through my Instagram page in hopes of getting just a handful of photos of her family's spring visit to Whitefish. It was the first time they'd all been together in several years and was especially important to her parents. Multi-generational family sessions are always such a pleasure to do because there are always special moments whether it's between a dad and his daughters, some sibling tomfoolery, or grandparents and their grandchildren. Because of the toddlers and their diminutive attention spans to match their size, and the fact that Debbie is a pretty great photographer herself, I created a custom 'multi-generational family session' and we knocked these out in just 30 minutes.

Whitefish Family Photographer, The Ahmad Family

I was fortunate to spend this chilly morning with the Ahmad family at Depot Park and Whitefish City Beach documenting their late-summer family getaway to Northwest Montana. Little A. wasn't super comfortable in front of the camera for a lot of the session, but once she saw the water at City Beach and got to take a little walk with her brother and grandmother she perked right up and started grinning from ear-to-ear. They mentioned that they are planning a potential permanent move to Montana, and I can't wait to welcome them if they're able to make that happen.
