The other day I photographed the Paradise Valley Family Portraits of the Young Family at their ranch along the Yellowstone River.
The Young Family ranch rests on the edge of the Yellowstone River. It’s a timeless and beautiful Montana property tucked away in Paradise Valley and a place that holds special sentiment for this family.
The old dairy farm was purchased by their great-grandfather in the 1980s and was his pride and joy home. Over the years, it has served as an anchor point for many wonderful Montana memories for their family.
A sanctuary where they can fish, ride ATVs, and spend uninteruped time together as a family.
For a family of twelve, they, unfortunately, don’t all get together as much as they would want to. Usually family gatherings happen only around the holidays.
The upcoming 4th of July weekend would be their family reunion. The Young family were celebrating having everyone together for the first time in two years. They wanted to remember it with Paradise Valley Family Portraits.
I had a wonderful time with the Young Family exploring their family farm and making fun portraits and candid photographs.
It was such a pleasure getting to know this family and finding out what they cherish most about each other and their relationships.
There is a lot of love in this family.
Here are some favorite photographs from our time together.-M
