Spring weather in Glacier National Park can be unpredictable, but rain or shine you can almost always guarantee some amazing photos. Spring this year has had an abundance of rain and has made for some damp photo sessions. But the best part of spring, and all of the rain, is everything coming to life. Making the change from gray and brown, to lush green with a sprinkle of color from the beautiful wildflower blooms. The other perk to a heavy rain season of Spring is the lesser chance of a bad fire season (every Montanan is crossing their fingers right now).

Hikes in Glacier National Park

The amazing Pullig family traveled to Montana all the way from Louisiana to celebrate Mom, Micah, and son, Bronsen’s birthdays. They are so excited to experience Montana and everything the area has to offer. Among many things to see in Glacier National Park, there are some stunning hikes of varying difficulty. The day before their session the Pullig Family hiked a couple of favorite hikes in Glacier, Avalanche Lake, and Johns Lake Loop. Alltrails is a great resource for hikers to check trail conditions before they head out.  Spring can be the perfect time for them to come to Glacier National Park before the summer crowds make their way to the area. 

"We're here for the Mountain Views!"

We started off our session at Belton Stage Park. The fluffy clouds were just high enough to allow some of the mountain peaks to show through, we even got a peek of sunshine for some stunning golden hour photos! They even brought balloons in honor of their corresponding birthdays! Next, we moved to the shores of Lake Mcdonald. The calm waters, moody skies, and Glacier National Park Mountains made for a dazzling backdrop. This family was so fun to work with they even ended their session by dipping their toes in Lake Mcdonald. 

 We couldn’t have asked for a better spring day in Glacier National Park, the rain held off and the sun even peeked through the clouds for a gorgeous evening. The perfect end to a splendid day was the cotton candy sunset on our drive out of the park. Talk about picturesque!
