Some of the most beautiful images of models, children and everyday people are not designed to highlight them. Rather, it is to shine the lens on the clothing and accessories adorning them and to convey information about lifestyle and mood. That is the essence of the genre of photography known as fashion photography. At Crackle Photography, Missoula's fashion photography studio, we enjoy creating images like those you see in fashion magazines such as Vogue and Vanity Fair. Our images are striking, not only because of the beautiful clothing and accessories, but also because of how they are displayed by the model, the physical elements of the setting, and the overall layout and composition of the photo.
A strong sense of fashion and influence from fashion magazines are definitely prevalent in both our senior portrait photography and in our Beauty sessions.
Fashion photography is more than just positioning your subject and taking a portrait. Considerations regarding hair, makeup, accessories, background, lighting and more must be carefully incorporated to produce the desired effect. Therefore, a professional fashion photographer must have expertise in many different aspects that contribute to ideal composition for each and every project.
For this reason I strongly believe in a collaborative team approach to these sessions. I work closely with a number of local makeup artists, hairstylists and stylists who help translate our vision board and ideas to a cohesive reality.
Fashion photography can occur either in the controlled setting of a studio or set, or the more spontaneous setting in the field. There are advantages for each; in the studio, for example, you can create dramatic lighting effects anytime and in a controlled setting. However, in the field, you have the elements of nature, opportunities for use of natural light and shadows, and greater flexibility to pair the clothing and accessories with a sense of place.
Many fashion photographers will tell you that this genre of photography is really less about the clothes, shoes and accessories and more about the lifestyle depicted by the models and captured in the photos. At Crackle Photography, we work with you to ensure that your fashion photography portfolio beautifully portrays the essence of the lifestyle you wish to show in your images. Whether its a carefree riverside shoot or a reenactment of a vintage theme, we will work together to plan out a detailed shoot that will show the story of our collaboration of creative minds!
You can decide how your shoot will be set up. Fashion images bring every element into perspective: the setting, mood, and the story are brought forward in every aspect of the photo shoot. Often, the models in fashion photography are dramatically styled. Women might have dramatic eye makeup or another characteristic prominently featured. The setting might be paradoxical - a man in a tuxedo deliberately placed in a casual setting. This juxtaposition creates mood and vibe for the viewer. They sense emotion and verve from the interaction of each element in a photograph.
What appeals to you and what you are drawn to are things we talk about together so we are able to create a portfolio unique to you.
One of the greatest things about fashion photography is that it's not limited to high fashion, supermodels or advertising. Maternity photos, Senior Portraits, sports photos, boudoir photos and pinups are all genres that can include a strong Fashion photography element.
Whether you're a professional model, clothier or advertising agency - or simply someone looking to create amazing fashion photos Crackle Photography in Missoula, MT will work with you to bring your aesthetic vision to fruition.

Summer is officially here!! Missoula Schools got out at 11.30 am today and my kids are overjoyed!! Though I think my husband is more happy than anyone today was his final day of teaching after 15 years with Missoula County Public Schools - congratulations Don and I know you will thrive in your new ventures.
Here is Leah Catherine's new venture!! Meet baby Asher - a little peanut who charms everyone!
Got her eyes on dad!
Congratulations to you all!! Enjoy the new addition to your growing clan!!
And have a happy and safe summer everyone!!
Meet lovely Connie who is just the warmest most beautiful person inside and out. As we all know beauty comes from the inside and with this lovely lady it just radiates.
We celebrated who she is, we channeled the Mario Testino
look of the late Princess Diana. We also photographed her in a number of outfits that she has been given from various countries where she has done missionary work.
I believe that everyone deserves to have the experience of feeling like a supermodel! Our beauty sessions are a Girls Day Out! We do your hair and make up and you will feel absolutely amazing, stunning and beautiful!! Your inner glow will shine out like a gigantic spotlight!!!! This is not a boudoir session - this is about your inner beauty, this is about making you feel wonderful about you. Beauty sessions are about celebrating you, they are to make you feel stunning, confident and know that everything about you is special. Come and celebrate who you are - whether you are 50 plus or struggling with your confidence levels in your teens and twenties, or your just needing a pick me up - a day away from being "MOM" this is a way to find your source of light and power, and the images you will have after will reignite that feeling for you for years to come.
Connie thank you for such a wonderful afternoon! I look forward to meeting the rest of your family and photographing them later this summer.
Meet the talented Kali Lindner the founder and creator of Oula
Although she is 6 months pregnant Kali is still moving it and enthusing everyone with a passion for dance and exercise to try Oula. This was a fun commercial shoot for First Interstate bank who have been business partners with Kali.
Here are Kali and Sue from First Interstate... though they tried hard they still have not got me out there on the Oula dance floor!!
Powerful moves, and fun dancing - its seems a really great workout and fun way to blow off steam... I just need to get over myself and being two steps left of the right everyone else just took!
Thanks Kali - one day before the end of 2014 I swear I will be in class!!
The twins are getting so big, here they are at 9 months. I really think the nine months outside the womb goes 10x faster than the 9 months it takes to hatch a baby!! Here the monkeys are contained for just a few seconds. Looking so adorable in Coo Baby
scarves that wipe up drool and keep clothes clean, plus look super dapper and cute!!
Little miss sunshine happy!!
And the eyelashes just get longer!!
Had to add this in just to show that whatever you buy them, the kids prefer the packaging to the toy!!
