Montana Baby | outdoor newborn photography

To me, combining baby and earth together is one of the most pure and organic art-forms imaginable. The possibilities created within this combination is immensly inspiring to me. I went into this session ready to continue my journey photographing newborns amongst the pure beauty of nature. It was a 32 hour round trip drive to Montana and then an additional 9 hour round trip to Glacier National Park. It was worth every minute of the drive, though. Photographing a newborn baby in front of a scene like this was an opportunity of a lifetime for me. I am immensely grateful for Lylee’s family for being so willing to drive their one week new baby 9 hours for just a 2 hour session. They were so helpful in assisting me in any way I needed as well. Together, we created some amazing pictures. I must also thank the most beautiful model, little Lylee. She was as sleepy as can be and even shared a few of those fleeting smiles that make all of our hearts swell with love. Photographing newborns outdoors has opened a whole new world to me and I hope this year has kicked off only the first in many more destination sessions to come! The yellow and grey headbands were made by the most wonderful Melanie Disbrow and can be purchased at her Etsy Shop! Lots more pictures due here on the blog. Lately we have been…. very busy!!!!:)
