Anchorage Family Photographer | Mother's Day Mini Sessions!

I am so excited for these sessions because, a little secret about me, I am TERRIBLE about getting in front of the camera with my kids. We probably have heaps of pictures of my husband with our kids, but I always prefer to spend my time behind the camera. I always encourage parents to get in pictures with their newborns and kiddos, so I really should get better about doing just that.

These sessions will take place May 6, 2018, and can include immediate family members per session (moms and kids only please!). I am happy to include a grandmother, kids, and grandkids as well. I want everyone to have these memories. If you have any questions about who can be included, please feel free to message me.

In case you haven't started thinking Mother's Day yet, this would be an AMAZING Mother's Day present! Pamper those moms, they deserve it! 

Sessions are $125 and I need a $50 nonrefundable retainer to book your spot. $75 will be due at the time of your session, and I can take cash, check, or card. I have not decided on a location yet, but it will be in the Eagle River/Chugiak/Peters Creek area. Emails will be sent out with information a week before your session with all the information you may need. Follow the link to book your spot!

Anchorage Maternity Photographer | "K" Maternity

I'm still swooning over this session. The light, the dresses, the clients, amazing. This was a VERY cold day in February, and when I saw that it was negative degree temperatures at our shoot location, I asked if they were still up for photos there, and they were. I'm so happy we were brave. 

When I constantly try to push golden hour on my clients, this session is why. It was -10 degrees, and that golden yellow light coming from the sun setting still gives everything a warm glow. I'm dreading the summer coming for that reason only, it gets really difficult to get that kind of light when the sun sets at 11:30pm. 

The gorgeous blue dress against the snow, and dad to be looking very classy, I love the session. Thank you Sew Trendy Accessories for another beautiful dress!

Anchorage Maternity Photographer | "G" Family Maternity

My clients are the bravest. They venture out in VERY cold weather in the snow and ice to capture such an amazing moment in their lives.

This momma and family were no exception. We chose a beautiful location on a snowy and cold night, and mom wore one of my gorgeous dresses from Sew Trendy Accessories, and she MADE a beautiful flower crown. I'm so impressed by this, I may need to start doing this for my other clients. Have I mentioned that mom is stunning? You have to check out the photos of her, she rocked this session, and little man was an absolute trooper, he did amazing.

I get to do this family's newborn soon, and I'm so excited to meet the newest member of this beautiful family.

Anchorage Wedding Photographer | "J" Wedding

Now that we're solidly in winter here in Alaska, let's have a little sunshine in our lives with a wedding I did back in July!

It was a hot, beautiful day. With a super fun wedding party, and some of my favorite clients, this wedding was so much fun. And their theme, is to die for. Rustic, neutral, yellows... I need to decorate my house like that. 

I've been doing photos for this couple since their son was a newborn and they were in a desperate search for a last minute photographer, and found me. I did little man's photos every 3 months for his first year, so as you can imagine, I got to know his parents as well. And they are SO much fun. Their personalities go together so well. So when they asked me to do their wedding photography, I was thrilled. I got to come hang out with them, and their venue, Gloryview Farm in Wasilla, was amazing. Every detail was thought of, and I'm honored I was able to be a part of their  day. 

Thank you again, M and A! You guys are the best!

Anchorage Senior Photographer | "C" Senior

You guys. It's been so cooooooold. I'm talking so cold that the other day I walked out my front door and thought Oh! It feels warmer today! It was 6 degrees. SIX. DEGREES. So just the fact that I thought that was warm tells you how its been for the last couple weeks. But I'm really hoping this is a precursor to what our summer looks like, because although its been way too cold, it's been nonstop clear and sunny. As I'm typing this, it's 2 degrees outside. Hurry up (sunny) Alaskan summer! 

I've been dreaming about warmth so I thought I would post a session that I did in the fall with fall colors, and it was clearly warm enough that we were all comfortable in long sleeves and no coat. 

I loved this session. Mom kept telling me that my girl here was not super into having her picture taken, but by the end of this session, we were laughing and having so much fun that it wasn't even work anymore. And look how gorgeous she is. Effortlessly, might I add. Because I do a lot of child portraits, every time I get someone in front of my camera that will follow directions and laugh with me, it's a good day.
