One of the top questions I get asked about is what location you should choose for your session. I compiled all my favorite Billings locations and what I like about each one. Of course, I’m always up for a new or cool location, too!
Great outdoor location
Lots of trees, greenery (or fall colors in the Fall), trails, and a small lake with a small bridge
Near the Yellowstone River on the other side of the Park d and want to make your session super personal and unique? I can come to you- this is, after all, where you are most comfortable and your one of a kind images will be a treasure for years to come.
Great outdoor location
Has both options of outdoorsy backgrounds with trails and great colors in the Fall
Has an old wooden boxcar for an added option for backgrounds
Outdoor location that has lots of greenery
Near a small stream.
Two Moon Park (Heights)
Great outdoor location, lots of trees, right next to the Yellowstone River
Beautiful for Golden Hour sessions
Dover Park (Heights)
Beautiful outdoor location
Must be able to walk on a trail to get to the needed location
Not recommended for clients that need assistance walking or are unsteady on their feet
Zimmerman Park (On the Rims)
Outdoor location on the top of the Rims
Overlooking the city, has the potential for beautiful skylines
Backgrounds are more rocky/shaley
Beautiful during Golden Hour
Swords Park (On the Rims)
Outdoor location on top of the Rims
Closer to the Heights and Downtown
Can be a little more tricky depending on the cloud cover/lighting
One of my favorite locations for Senior Sessions
Oscar’s Park (Off of the Frontage Road on the way to Laurel)
Super fun and quirky location
There are lots of old buildings on the property as if it was an old town- this lends itself to many different background choices
This is private property, so I need to get prior permission from the owners to be able to use this location
Sundance Park (Off of Thiel Road out towards Laurel)
Beautiful outdoor location near the Yellowstone River
Lots of variety of backgrounds and is very peaceful and serene
What can I say? I love downtown sessions, there’s just so much variety and endless options. Every time I do a downtown session, I find new backgrounds and architecture. The light is hitting something in a new way I never saw before, or something jumps out at me.
This option is great for all types of sessions
Really cool little spot on the campus that I love to use
Really cool fountain area with greenery as well as an awesome architectural area with bricks and a staircase
Billings Open Studio
Great indoor option for those cold days that being outdoors is just not an option
Works great, especially for those extended family sessions when family is in town for the holidays
Your Own Backyard
Have a great backyard and want to make your session super personal and unique? I can come to you- this is, after all, where you are most comfortable and your one of a kind images will be a treasure for years to come.
Red Lodge Locations
There are so many amazing spots in Red Lodge, but I wanted to highlight just two of my favorites:
The Beartooth Pass
This amazing location gives you breathtaking mountain views. You have to be willing to spend a bit of time driving to the location, but it’s totally worth it. The pass is usually open May through October, depending on snowfall.
Rock Creek Resort
A great option for mountain views if you don’t want to spend extra time driving up the pass or if the pass is closed for the season. We do need to get prior permission to use this location.
