I have lived here in Billings, Montana since June of 2018 and I have grown to love it more and more but when I first moved here, I had absolutely no clue where to take my dear clients. Now that I have more experience under my belt, I wanted to put a quick blog for you guys to show you where I like to take my clients to shoot their portraits! Here we go!
1. DOWNTOWN BILLINGS
If you love colorful wall murals, brick walls, old buildings, alley ways, rugged stairways, then Downtown Billings is a the location for you! You can never go wrong with a casual, Downtown look for your Senior Portraits.
2. NORM'S ISLAND
This is actually right across the street from Riverfront Park! I love the bridge there and there is a nice body of water here too! During the summer, it is pretty brutal with the amount of mosquitos and bugs flying around. If you love pretty bridges and you're equipped with bug spray or even go during the year when there aren't a ton of bugs, then this is the place for you!
3. ZIMMERMAN PARK
Located at that top of the rims, Zimmerman Park is a beautiful nature trail that looks over beautiful Billings, Montana. There are a ton of beautiful, tan boulders for a neutral colored backdrop and perfect for making you stand out! Highly recommend this place at golden hour!
4. PHIPPS PARK
Phipps park has been a go-to recently. Like Zimmerman Park, there are a lot of cool boulders but there is also a lot of greenery surrounding you and the hike is also a very short and easy one to get to this awesome spot! Whenever I go, it just doesn't feel like you're in Billings anymore!
5. RIVERFRONT PARK
This place is perfect if you want a cute, little mountain and a lake in the background and if you don't want to travel too far! In the summer months, it is very green and full of life. In the fall, the leaves turn golden yellow and orange and is perfect for that October feel!
6. A STUDIO OR YOUR PLACE!
I recently took up studio type work with lighting and backdrops. This would be perfect for any headshots or branding for your business! Bonus if you love crazy bright vivd colors as much as I do ;)
