The Sears Family came with 14 family members on our large-family session in the Elkhorn Mountains. They were a joy to photograph and it was the first time in four years that the family had been together as a whole. I feel blessed to have been chosen to document this special occasion and create these beautiful images for them to remember the trip by. The little ones braved the cool mountain air and we only got rained on a little bit. I found this location thanks to my friend Laura who had posted a photo on Facebook of her son running through this meadow. I messaged her and she gladly gave me directions. This breathtaking location is up a windy dirt road near the Strawberry Butte Lookout in the Elkhorn Mountains between Montana City and Clancy. If you live in the Helena area, this drive is well worth it.
