Family portrait sessions in the winter can be so much fun! We were blessed with the perfect combo of above freezing weather, fresh snow and a beautiful backdrop. The Scheidt family travels to a ski destination from Illinois every year and Big Sky has become one of their favorites. I was so excited to workout my schedule so I could go be a Big Sky photographer for a day! I love an excuse to make the quick 45-minute drive through the canyon and up to one of the most glorious places. What a great idea to plan a photoshoot while you are on vacation with your whole family in a winter wonderland environment!
If you are reading this and have never made a trip out to Big Sky, Montana, you gotta go! It is certainly one of my favorite ski destinations with no lift lines, tons of terrain for all levels (coined “The Biggest Skiing in America”), and you can ski off the very tip-top of the mountain, Lone Peak. I should probably mention that it’s where Roy and I got married so my opinion may be a little biased. ;)
