mentor session | kalispell montana photographer

a while back i was contacted by a lovely girl from california about doing a mentor session with me. she said that she would love to fly to montana and spend the day with me. WHAT?! i’m not gonna lie….it made my year. it’s such a wonderful feeling to know that people out there really do love what i do!! i love teaching about photographing and sharing what i know. i may not know the right way to do it or the best way to do it, but i am happy to teach what i do know—or even what i know doesn’t work ๐Ÿ™‚

it really meant the world to me to know that Phoebe was willing to travel to the big state of montana. it’s not an easy place to get too (but so worth it!!). i appreciate it so much….and i hope she had as much fun as i did!!!

we had a great time photographing my favorite best friend duo. i’ve known these girls for years and i adore them to the moon! they are the kind, loving, sincere, caring…and gorgeous!! they have hearts of gold, just like their mamas ๐Ÿ™‚

i don’t have a ton of photos, because lets me honest…i talk a lot—-but i wanted to share a few.

thank you SO MUCH, Phoebe, for your adventures in montana!!! i loved meeting you and spending the day with you!! and a huge thank you to Ahna and Maya for being the best! xoxo
