Summer Stylized Maternity : Missoula, Montana Artistic Photography
The year of 2012 brought a lot of fun and excitement. this summer I reconnected with a long time family friend, Jessa. I knew we both lived in Missoula, but one lost cell phone later we lost touch. It was so nice to randomly run into her at the Dollar Tree. I knew she was married, but I quickly learned she was expecting her first baby! What an exciting time in her life and a perfect time for us to capture. Before I knew it we were giggling it up and being dorks as cars drove by watching us shoot this session. It was almost as if we’d never lost touch, our connection is that strong. We sang songs we made up in our “secret club” and talked about our past babysitting adventures, and our trip to Miss Montana when I was in 7th grade. There are fewer things in life more valuable than a true, lifelong friend. I not only got to capture these maternity moments, but eventually captured baby Genevieve’s birth. How fleeting those moments are. Becoming a parent for the first time is scary and magical all at once. To be able to have a document of the raw emotion of literally seeing and holding your child for the first time is nothing short of breathtaking. Baby Genevieve is on the Baby’s First Year plan, so you will be seeing a lot of her and her family in the months to come! Here is a highlight of Jessa’s maternity session.
