A little about Abigayle Ray Photography:

Abigayle Ray Photography is family run photography business located in Livingston, Montana. We enjoy seeing the beauty in life through a camera lens and bringing our vision to print.

We are often asked "why did you name your business Abigayle Ray Photography if your name is not "Abigayle"? We decided to name our business after our daughter "Abigayle"! She inspires us and our love for photos has been passed on to her, she loves to take photos herself, lol but does not really like them taken of her!

Now a little about us, we promise to keep it short!

Michael (Eric) is the Photographer and has always loved taking pictures, early on, taking pictures of his pets, family and the scenery around him and as an adult capturing stunning sunsets, cloudbursts, family moments and the beauty of nature. Michael is finally following his other dream, his first was being a Firefighter/EMT. Michael is now branching out and sharing his gift of photography with others. As a Father he knows what it takes to make your child giggle, laugh and find that perfect picture that when looked at brings you back to that moment in time.

Melody is the Creative Director. She has also always loved taking pictures of the world that surrounded her, her family, pets, horses, friends and whatever else she could capture. Melody does the posing, finding the perfect fuzzy blanket for your little one to compliment the outfit of choice, your child's skin tone, eye color etc. Being a mom and a woman capturing the nurturing look of a expectant mother gazing at her growing belly with a flower in her hair, finding that perfect picture to capture that moment for years to come.
