Last week I had so much fun creating a Big Sky Montana family fashion portrait experience for the Jones family during their vacation to Southwest Montana. I always love it when a client comes to me with a unique photo request. This family lives in Georgia and the ladies – Ashley (a professional barrel racer), Sloan, Alexis, & Dawn wanted to do a fun Big Sky Montana family fashion photo shoot in the snow with all of their favorite ball gown dresses. As a bonus, Alexis wanted to do a maternity photo session with her husband who are expecting their first child.

I loved the idea and we decided to explore snowy spots along the Gallatin River around Big Sky, Montana to make interesting and elligant winter environmental fashion portraits. These ladies had style. I loved the enthusiasm and positive attitudes each one brought to our chilly January photo session. The negative space of the fresh snowfall on the river scene created a really cool environment to play in.

Here are a few favorite photos from our time together. Thanks for playing in MT with me, Jones Family! It was a pleasure creating with you guys. -M
