What's your favorite weather? Perfectly clear day, a bit of overcast, rain pattering on your windows, a nice snowfall? Growing up in Seattle gave me a love for the fog, misty mornings, and clean fresh air. Living in AZ gave me an appreciation for beautiful warm mornings and the sun shining down. #montana #bigsky #montanaphotographer #billingsphotography #billings #billingsmontana #billingsphotographer #sunrise #goodmorning #instagood #fanda #fall #autumn #seasons #river #eastrosebud #ig_northamerica #west #westbysouthwest #visitmt

Those of you that have followed me long enough know that in addition to landscape and wildlife I love portrait work. Every now and then I'll share a few here. These are from an awesome senior portrait session I had this fall. Senior pics are absolutely my favorite portraits to take... I mean what 17/18 yr old doesn't want to look awesome?

So much excitement over the new engagement! Congratulations 🍾🎊🎉 I’m so excited for you 😍 Jeff & Tiara got engaged recently over a campfire 🔥 in WY with what originally was a fish hook bent to look like a ring.

I loved coming across this young buck during one of my early fall hikes outside of Bozeman Mt. He was away off, so I quickly put my Tamron 150-600 on and upped my iso to get the shot. I was happy he stayed posing for me. Hope you all had a great and safe New Year's! #montana #bigsky #montanaphotographer #billingsphotography #billings #earthfocus #mycanonstory #canon #canon6d #canon_official #fanda #backroads #ig_northamerica #allnatureshots #idsnapthat #wildlife #deer #tamron #wow_america #mood

If shooting sunrises and sunsets has taught me one thing, it's that's you can never expect things to go as planned, but you can plan... and hope... and when those plans hit the right timing, then perfection can be achieved. @packtography can attest, when you rise at 2 A.M. to catch a brilliant sunrise, you're doing so, only with hope. You can not guarantee that the clouds, the sun, and the other factors will cooperate. When they don't, you don't scrap your gear and say you're done and never shooting again... you learn and hope the next time will be better. I hope that as you begin 2019, you can plan for perfection, but be prepared for the days that will be struggles. The magnificent days will be worth it. This is my final post of 2018. I can't say I'm sad to see 2018 go... Not sure if I could survive another like this. But as hard as it's been, I couldn't be more grateful for the amazing people I've met that will always be a part of my life. Cheers to 2019! #happynewyear #journey #explore #equanimity #montanaphotographer #billingsphotography #billingsphotographer #sky #clouds #goodmorning #canon6d #canon_official #mycanonstory #yourshotphotographer #canon #positivity #bestrong #fanda #backroads #rsa_rural #rsa_outdoors #sceniclocations #roadtrip #travel #sunset #roads #trying #behappy

“The time just before dawn contains the most energy of all hours of the day. This has helped me become an early riser and an early doer…. When I wake to see that it’s light out already, I feel the world has started without me.” ~Terri Guillemets On Jekyll Island there is a beautiful place named Driftwood Beach. Rising early and arriving here before the first light has touched the shores is absolutely worth it and she be on your bucket list. These beautiful fallen trees which have made three home here evoke wonderful emotions and imagination and the sun begins to make its way across our beautiful country. #georgia #beach #atlantic #ocean #sunrise #goodmorning #eastcoast #firstlight #canon #canon6d #canon_official #mycanonstory #yourshotphotographer #instagood10k #ig_underdogz #hidden_igers #fanda #backroads #earthfocus #montanaphotographer #billingsphotography #billingsphotographer #sky #clouds
