Eagle River Alaska Maternity Photography | "S" Family

I looooove this session. The photos all turned out beautiful. The lighting was perfect, the location was perfect, but most of all my beautiful pregnant momma was absolutely glowing and beautiful. 

Confession for this session: I was sick. For whatever reason, I always expect to not get sick in the summer and feel like I'm in the clear when it starts getting warm out, so when I do get sick, I'm just slightly offended that I didn't even catch the illness from my kiddos going to school, I managed to get sick all on my own. Does anyone else do this? We had already had to reschedule once for reasons out of our control, and I knew momma was thinking her little one was coming soon, so there was NO WAY I was letting my cold get in the way. So, armed with sore throat lozenges and hand sanitizer, off we went for this gorgeous session. All went well, although I tend to shoot pretty far away from my subjects, so yelling out directions was a little bit more of a challenge than usual. :)

I love this family. I've done a family shoot for them previously, back when I was building my portfolio, and they are all so sweet, and have I mentioned, GOOD LOOKING? Momma rocked this gorgeous blue dress from Sew Trendy Accessories, which I still have for any other mommas to be who want an amazing maternity dress to rock for a session. ;)

"S" Family Maternity Session!

The way this sweet girl is looking at her momma just melts my heart. <3

ANNOUNCING! Name change!

If you follow my page at all, you'll probably notice that something has changed. I've changed my name from Oh So Sweet Photography to Karen Travers Photography.

As I'm starting to get into different areas of photography, I started to feel a little limited by my previous name. 

I'm pretty excited about this name change, I've been wanting to do it for a while, but please hang in there while I get things changed around. You can still contact me in all the same ways, through the website, through my Facebook page, and phone number is still the same. The only contact information that is going to change is my direct email address. This will now be: 

karen@karentraversphotography.com

You'll still be able to reach me at the old email address while I get things changed around. :) Thanks for sticking with me through some exciting changes!

 

Eagle River Family Photography | "J" Mommy and Me Session

This is the cutest family. I was contacted before Mother's Day by Hannah's husband, asking for a Mommy and Me session to give as a gift for a Mother's Day present. SO thoughtful! Gifting sessions is such an awesome idea.

We have had a pretty rainy/cloudy summer. But somehow, the sun came out for this session and I swear, a storm rolled in right after we were finished. Whew.

These kids are so sweet, and Hannah is so much fun. We laughed and walked around the park, and even got to chase a few butterflies, and were able to capture some super sweet photos for Hannah to cherish forever.

Eagle River Twin Newborn Photography | "T" Family Twin Newborns

Remember back in January when I said I was going to be awesome sauce this year and keep up with blogging. Fail. This session happened back in March and here I finally am, leaves on the trees and wearing short sleeves instead of bundled up and shivering like I was in March when I did this shoot.

Yay for twins! As a newborn photographer in Eagle River, Alaska, newborn multiple sessions are rare. So I get super excited every time one books with me.

These are the busiest parents ever. Newborn twin boys, and a very active 2 year old big sister. Whew. I got sleep deprived just thinking about that. Their parents are so much fun, and we found out that we both have kiddos with the initials "TNT" so we knew we were going to get along. 

Already I could see the differences in their little personalities. So sweet!

Eagle River Newborn Photography | "P" Baby

"P" family continued (plus 1)!

How sweet is this little man? He is so loved by not only his excited parents, but mom came in with handmade things from both grandmothers to use as props in his photos. (Where's the crying face emoji when you need it?) 

I got so many sweet sleepy smiles which I LOVE, and had so much fun. Love this family!
