A real life snow globe – Big Sky Maternity Photographer

Did you know Big Sky is part of my local area?  What does that mean?  There is never a travel fee for photo sessions in Big Sky, Moonlight, Rainbow Ranch, Yellowstone Club and the surrounding area.  I feel so blessed to be able to offer maternity and other photography sessions to families in Big Sky.  You can’t ask for better views!

This sweet couple splits their time between Austin and Big Sky and wanted maternity pictures in both locations.  It was an honor that I was able to photograph them in Big Sky right before they headed back south.  I am excited to see their other maternity photos among the bluebonnets of Texas!  I headed up to Big Sky early for our session since you never know if you’ll be delayed in the canyon.  The clouds and snow started to roll into Big Sky as I pulled into town and that is when I realized that I had forgotten my coat at home.  Thankfully I was early and could stimulate the Big Sky economy and thankfully catch an end of season sale.  We decided to try and get views of Lone Peak first since it seemed like the clouds were opening up a little.  We were able to find a great spot in Big Sky with Lone Peak as our backdrop.  We were pretty limited with space.  I tried to step off the trail a few times and ended up in waist deep snow.  Getting wet for a good shot is worth it though!Big Sky MaternityMountain maternity photoBig Sky Montana Maternity session

After getting views of Lone Peak we went to another of their favorite spots in Big Sky the Ousel falls trail.  It started to snow on our way there and Dad looked at me and asked if it was going to be OK.  “Oh yeah this stuff is little it will be just fine, its the big flakes that make things difficult”  HA!  Its like mother nature heard me and said hold my beer and watch this.  As we started walking down the trail the skies opened up and it started dumping snow.  There were so many giant wet snowflakes.  It is annoying in post-processing these photos because I try to remove as many flakes as possible from my clients’ faces, but this snow was so amazing it was worth it.
When you think it can’t possibly snow harder and the snowflakes start to double you go with the flow and just throw your arms up in the air and enjoy it!Big Sky snow Maternity photographerWinter Montana maternity photographerIf I were to use one word to describe the last few moments of the session it would be peaceful.  I’m not sure what it is but when it snows this hard the surrounding nature gets so quiet.
