Thank You for a fantastic 2014…

Thank you so much for choosing Little Bear Photography. It has been a great year and I am very much looking forward to new and exciting things in 2015! I was fortunate enough to sell Adventure Lifestyle images to Five Valleys Land Trust this year as well as Cliff Bar. Excited to take a little more time this year to shoot those kind of images. I worked with Cold Springs Elementary to do school photos for the students this year. It was a great experience and I look forward to working with them in the future. I have had a blast taking portraits of families, kiddos, and newborns. Thank you all for the referrals this year. Below is a little review of the past year! My it goes by so fast! All the more reason to get images taken often! Valentine Mini’s are so much fun and I have to say one of my favorite sessions of the year!!! Here is sweet Lennon!

Go Griz!Little Lennon…I have taken pictures of Lennon since he was a newborn. He’s getting so big!He brought his little cousin in to get her holiday photo too…This image was taken in the summer of 2010. I had just graduated from the Summer Intensive part of Rocky Mountain School of Photography. We hiked in to Granite Park Chalet for two days with our girls. It was quite the adventure. I hadn’t realized that the reservations fell on the anniversary of “Night of the Grizzlies”. For those of you who don’t know I was stalked by a grizzly while camped at Trout Lake years ago. It was the scariest night of my life and no doubt I am lucky to be alive. I had no idea until hiking out about the night of the grizzlies documentary. Needless to say I was contemplating canceling our reservations. We decided to go ahead and as we headed into the park the weather got worse and worse. Our plan was to hike in via the Highline Trail. However we decided that was a long exposed trail to be on with kids and bad weather. We changed the plan and hiked in through the Loop Trail. Madison was pretty little back then and still in the backpack. It was cold and rainy. Part way up the trail we realized she was becoming hypothermic. Right on the middle of the steep trail trying to keep the rain off of her we had to change all her clothes, get her long underwear on her and luckily that , feeding her, and having her walk for a while worked. I was so thankful when we got there that we were sleeping inside that night. It rained so much it was pouring in the walls of our room! Luckily the next few days were great and the hike out the Highline Trail was bright and sunny. This is the image Cliff Bar purchased. One of my favorites and it is now hanging up in my home. We take at least one trip to Glacier National Park every year. I just love the adventure, beauty, animals, and all the memories that are made there! Happy New Year! Here is to an adventurous 2015!!!
