 Some words from past customers~


     The decision to schedule Stormy at Thunder Cloud Images from 2,000 miles away was without a doubt, a great decision. Our annual father and daughters two week gathering in Montana ended with our portrait session at Stormy's unique property at the end of a gravel road.  Her professional talents and guidance were complemented by her genuine, witty and friendly character.  Stormy's superb prints and our memories of our Montana trip now adorn the walls of our homes for us and others to admire for years.  If you are fortunate enough to schedule a photo session with Stormy, then you will discover a classy individual and photographer who you might well call your friend.  Stormy, thank you for letting us share in your love of photography, and my daughters and I spending an enjoyable early evening with you at Thunder Cloud Images.

Stormy's professionalism, combined with her sparkling personality, made for an enjoyable and successful afternoon filled with laughs, stories and many excellent photos.  I highly recommend her for any of your photographic needs.  My session left me wanting to come back for more, just to spend more time with her.  Her work is magical and meaningful.  The end result was more beautiful than I ever thought possible.  Thank you, Stormy!

     Stormy listened sensitively to what I wanted and created beautiful and professional images of my work delivering a presentation that I use to promote my business.  I was wowed by  her ability to capture just what I was looking for.  I highly recommend Thunder Cloud Images.

"Working with Stormy was wonderful! Her attention to detail and professionalism made the shoot easy for us and she captured the best attributes of our property and really made them shine. We were impressed by the quick turnaround time from shoot day to photos as well as the perfect images. From the first day our listing has had above average traffic and the photos do the work of selling the house. We’ve only been on the market for 11 days, but the response we’ve had has been great, and all positive. I’m so glad we went with Thunder Cloud Images and I’d recommend Stormy Barton to anyone looking for high quality real estate photography."

I am so thankful I contact Stormy to do my daughter's senior photos along with family photos for us. There are many great photographers here in Three Forks but I wanted to make sure my daughter had someone that not everyone in her class would be using so that her pictures would have a different look to them. Stormy went out of her way to make sure that she captured my daughter's personality and on many occasions encouraged her to be her goofy self which I love. Not only did Stormy get phenomenal pictures of my daughter that she will treasure forever Stormy also managed to get my younger two kids to truly smile and enjoy the process which is not an easy task. Stormy made my whole family feel very comfortable during the photoshoot and she truly cared that we got exactly what we were looking for. Stormy made the whole process awesome, from scheduling, to taking the pictures, ordering, and the delivery of the photos I purchased was so adorable. Anyone that works with Stormy will know right away how much passion she truly has for her profession. I would highly recommend Stormy to anyone that is looking to have professional photos taken, you will not be disappointed! I cannot wait until my next daughter is ready for her senior photos (she is a freshman this year) to see what awesome pictures we get with Stormy for her.

We have been so blessed to have Stormy take our family photos over the past few years. She is a fantastic photographer and always manages to capture each moment in a beautiful, natural manner. Every photo shoot has been relaxed and so much fun that my children commonly ask when Stormy will be photographing them again. We are so grateful for the lifetime of memories Stormy has provided us through her photography. We will cherish the photos she has taken forever, and we would highly recommend Stormy to anyone who is looking for a kind, personable, and highly qualified photographer to capture their lifetime memories as well!

Having moments captured in time of our loved ones is so important, and Stormy did just that for us perfectly.  Our Dad volunteered in Yellowstone for 15 years, and the park truly feeds his soul.  Seeing as how he is so dear to us and how much Yellowstone means to him, we wanted to have some images of him in the park as mementos.  Stormy worked with us on a long distance request (we live in Virginia) to set up a time with her subject to capture him in a few of his favorites places in the park.  The results were amazing.  Not only did Stormy provide us with many proofs of which to view and order prints, but each one seemed like a mini masterpiece.  She was able to show many facets of our Dad, including his connection to Yellowstone as she photographed him in multiple locations.  We are truly indebted to her for providing us with beautiful memories we will be able to cherish forever.  Anyone would be lucky to work with her and/or be her subject.  Thanks a million, Stormy!

Stormy does an amazing job. She has done our family portraits twice, and both turned out amazing. She makes the whole family feel at ease, no pressure with posing or orchestrating the event, and she captures some amazing candids that reflect each of the family members individuality and  personality.  My husband, who hates getting photographed, actually enjoys the event as she feels like one of the family and works with us on location and ideas. Our son, an active toddler to say the least, thinks she is funny and therefore follows along wonderfully. Stormy truly does an amazing job capturing the family in comfort, not rigid posing, her photos show tenderness and love, and her attention to detail in the process is outstanding. We easily and happily put our trust in her to photo our family. Looking forward to our next session!

Stormy Barton and Thunder Cloud Images are a class act. The quality, sensitivity, and creativity of photographs is in a league all its own. I needed some area-specific natural photographs and within 24 hours I received a wide selection of possible choices. Stormy is easy to work with and extraordinarily helpful.

Stormy Barton is an exceptionally talented professional photographer.  I have had the good fortune to work with her in two separate venues.  Stormy visited me in Yellowstone National Park to take personal photos of me one summer at the request of my daughters. My family has no photos of me as it is not a priority of mine.  Stormy worked with me for several hours in numerous places in the Park and showed great patience and skill in managing me throughout the exercise.  The results were of a quality and variety that I could not have imagined.  The photos met every goal that my daughters and I had and more.  While taking a number of pictures at a stunning spot in the Lamar Valley, a couple of folks, there to enjoy the evening, came over and complimented Stormy for how sensitively and carefully she had worked to insure that the photos were precisely what she wanted.

 I was so pleased with that experience I asked Stormy to take another set of photos at her studio outside of Bozeman.  These were made in the more formal setting of her studio as well as outside her studio to take full advantage of the beautiful scenery around her home and the distant views of the Spanish Peaks.  This time I wanted a few pictures of me but most of the photos included a long time friend of mine who also lives in Bozeman.  Again, the results were marvelous providing a priceless record of two old friends enjoying some time together and the experience of interacting with Stormy while doing so. 

Stormy's outstanding technical expertise is matched by her personal touch in getting her subjects to relax and be themselves.

Stormy has taken photos of our family three different times since we have known her. She did a wonderful job at capturing the love of our family and she truly wanted to tell a story with the pictures taken. She captured our family and showed the goofy, kind-hearted and sincerity that we have for each other. We greatly appreciated the time that she took to put her ‘all’ into taking our photos, spending extra time with us, and presenting the photos in a slide show for us to see all of the photos taken. The final photos were printed to perfection and we know that Stormy wants her customers and friends to be happy with the final product. Thank you Stormy for all of your time and for truly capturing our family.

Our three-generational family photos, consisting of eight adults, seven children and a dog, exceeded our hopes for cherished family mementos.  We will certainly use Thunder Cloud Images again in the future for photographic memories.
