A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of photographing the Phillipsburg Montana Family Portraits of the Johnston family.
Months back while traveling en route to Mexico, I met and struck up a conversation with Robi in the Missoula airport.
We talked about her life, what she loved about each of her children, and how fast they seemed to grow up. She wanted to celebrate each of them at this time of their lives.
While they live in Washington, as it turns out, she grew up spending her summers in Montana, a place near and dear to her heart. She decided that this was the year to celebrate her upcoming vacation with her two kids at the family ranch in Phillipsburg, Montana with a family portrait session.
We explored the rolling grass hills of her ranch making fun family portraits and candid photos of her kids being themselves. Despite both of them not feeling well, I was able to tease out some smiles and create some great, meaningful photographs for them.
Here are some of my favorite photographs from our Phillipsburg Montana Family Portraits session together. -M
