I've lived in Alaska for a long time now. I was born in Fairbanks, and although during high school I left for a while, and have finally come home as of 2.5 years ago, Alaska is home for me. So I like to think I know where things are located. (I don't.) When this awesome mom-and-dad-to-be asked for their session at Eklutna Tailrace, I thought I knew where it was. I've even had previous clients ask about that spot, and I've directed them somewhere completely different. (I'm sorry!)
This time I somehow managed to get it right, and I'm so glad I did. We got to do this session on one of our last semi warm nights of fall, and I'm in love. The only problem (or not problem) with this spot, is it is a hot spot for fishing, so we had to maneuver our way around everyone fishing without disturbing them, and somehow we managed. And if we had some strangers who managed to get in the background of photos, thank you Photoshop, you magical thing you.
This couple is so so much fun. I don't think we stopped laughing this entire time, and when I found out Dad had brought his fly fishing pole "just in case", I knew we needed to work that in. One of my very favorite maternity photos came from this session!
Since this session was at least 3 months ago, they have since had their gorgeous baby boy, and I got to meet him at his newborn session with me in December.
As always, a big huge thank you to Sew Trendy Accessories for your amazing maternity dress. I'm starting to get quite a collection of exclusively Sew Trendy dresses, and every one is impeccable.
