Carissa | Senior 2019

Carissa and I had an absolute blast at her senior session! She really wanted the fall leaves, so we waited for the first couple weeks of October when the leaves and colors are perfect. She absolutely killed it with every photo! Carissa is such an amazing young lady and I’m beyond proud to have her […]

Brittany | Senior 2019

Brittany is such a beautiful young lady on the inside and out.  I’ve had the absolute pleasure to get to know her this year since she’s been on the PMP Spokesmodel team, and she’s so sweet, kind, and considerate.  We were anxiously awaiting for fall colors for her senior session, and despite the cold weather […]

Peyton Smith | Senior 2019

Peyton is graduating from Sentinel High School and is one of my Paige Marie Photography Spokesmodels this year.  She has been a true joy to get to know over the course of our spokesmodel events, and I couldn’t wait to take her senior pics.  She’s a true beauty in every way! . Peyton brought along […]

Mary Minster | Senior 2019

I don’t have sweatshirts incorporated very often into senior sessions, but Mary wanted to ensure she got some shots that really showed off […]

Totally rocking my alma matter. (….um….my ten year class reunion is NEXT YEAR! Does that date me?!) Abby’s strawberry blonde hair and […]

Morgan Hall Senior Session

Morgan was my first Class of 2019 Senior and her session was awesome! We went to Fort Missoula and then caught the last sunset lighting on the Blue Mountain. She’s a total ray of sunshine and her bright blue eyes are killer! See all the sneak peaks from her session below.

Paityn McLean Senior Session

Meet Paityn!  She’s a Class of 2019 Sentinel High School grad and also a PMP Spokesmodel!  She’s also on the Sentinel Dance Team and enjoys hanging out with all her dance girls. I absolutely LOVED hanging out with Paityn for her senior session.  We danced in fields, chased puppies around, and even dunked in the […]
