Thank you to all my clients, supporters and loved ones for voting Jaela B. Photography Bitterroot's Best 2019!

Jaela B. Photography

those may be the specialties but I provide so much more! Weddings are another passion and something I invest my heart and soul into. What I love most about capturing your I do's is the opportunity to witness and be a part of your families growth through the wedding, to the birth of your first born, to capturing you as a family of 3 (or 4, or 5, or if you are crazy enough more! haha). Predominately providing portrait services through the Bitterroot and Missoula valleys, serving Missoula Montana and Hamilton Montana I am more than willing to travel longer distances and even out of state for elopements too! My fully stocked studio is located in Hamilton Montana. This is where I cater to you and offer breathtaking products that are exclusive to my studio and my studio only. I take pride in my work and providing your family and loved ones with beautiful portraits and wall art of heirloom quality to pass on through all generations and family members to come!

Hi Friends! A portrait of my family and a few things about me? Well... I'm a mother, a lover of children, a creative, and some might say slightly photography addicted!

I love chai tea lattes, hobby lobby and snuggling my babies. I am a Hamilton Montana Photographer, a Missoula Montana Photographer and I love to travel too.

"Jaela is so unbelievably talented! We are going to reap the benefits of this talent for many years to come. Her work is a focal point in our home. She has an incredible artistic eye that embodies the focus in a manner that can only be described as the Jaela B style. She has captured the most important moments of our lives. For this I will always be thankful. I will also continue to be a repeat client! No one else will do now."

- Rachel kittel

"Patient. Professional. Passionate. 
We had a great time during our newborn session and the pictures turned out incredibly. Her studio and props are amazing and her ability to work with infants is impressive. We love Jaela B. Photography!"

- Brittany Hayes

"Did my maternity and newborn pictures with Jaela and what a wonderful experience! She's extremely easy to work and makes you feel so comfortable while doing your photos. Her daughter was also there and helped to keep my toddler entertained while doing my newborn shoot and was so sweet to her. I would recommend Jaela to anyone for any occasion. She is passionate about photography and it shows in her work." 

- Jessica Burton

"Jaela took our engagement pictures and we couldn't be happier with them. She is easy to work with, has fun ideas, and a great eye."

- Willow rosenbaum

"This lady knows her stuff when it comes to photos of infants! She is fabulous! I marvel at every new one she posts and appreciate what she can do. She did a beautiful job with my great-great grandchildren when they were newborns! I have shared the pictures of the twins that you took and have had so many compliments on the photos. Your work is magnificent!"

-Joan hansen

"Jaela recently took newborn pictures of my daughter and I couldn't be happier with the sneak peeks I've received. She's not only unbelievably talented, but great to work with as well. Very professional, friendly, and she was amazing with my baby. I can't wait to hang her work up in my home!"


"Jaela does not only do amazing work but she is an amazing person. She is patient, kind and it shows that she loves what she does. She did my daughters newborn and 6 month photos and each time I received the gallery, I was blown away! I cannot wait for her 1 year portraits! Being a photographer myself, I very highly recommend Jaela."

"Okay... I am ready to book a session. Now what?"

Together, we will find a date and time that will work best for your family. Your retainer fee is due at booking to guarantee the specified day and time we have agreed upon. The remaining amount can be paid in payments with the final amount being due no later than your scheduled session.

On the day of your photo session, I would like you to do two things . . . relax and have fun! The hard part is over, payment is made, wardrobe is selected (oh wait... did you need help with that? If so check out my pinterest inspiration board here). Your kids are ready and have had their naps, husband is pep-talked because he “hates pictures” (insert rolling eyes emoji) and now comes the fun part! Most photo sessions last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour (with the exception of a newborn session which can last up to 4 hours and weddings of course). Don’t worry if your kids act “weird” during the shoot, don’t worry if you woke up to a big zit smack dab in the middle of your face, or if the weather isn’t perfect . . . everything will work out!

Now, if this session was one that calls for a viewing then we will schedule that for 10-14 days after your session has been completed. We will meet in-studio for your viewing/ordering session. (If you are a Missoula client or further, don't worry I can come to you as well or we can do a virtual viewing if necessary. Please don't let this deter you from utilizing my services!!! We will figure it out, I promise). At the viewing/ordering session I will reveal all of your images to you.  This might be my favorite part of the job, I get to witness your smiles, your excitement and sometimes your tears... but don't worry, they are always happy tears! I will show you all my product samples, and together we will place a customized order to fit your wants and needs! This order can be digital product only or some of my fantastic wall art offerings. I want you to get exactly what you want. NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS!

I can’t wait to get started planning your next photo session!
