Anchorage Maternity Photographer | "W" Maternity

I love this session! We were coming up on summer here, so we still have a bit of breakup snow, BUT we hadn't lost our ability to shoot at my favorite time of day, during golden hour. The lighting in these photos are my favorite. Warm, and provides some depth to the photos without being too harsh. 

This couple was so much fun! They were up for everything, and a few of my all time favorite photos came from their session. This momma rocked this beautiful dress from Sew Trendy Accessories, which fit her perfectly and looked amazing. This was the most easy going session so we got to do some exploring at this location I had been to a few times before, but hadn't seen everything it had to offer. (Hello, beautiful mountain range!)

A few weeks after this shoot, I got to meet their amazing baby boy before I left for vacation, and I'm excited to share those photos as well. Big congratulations to this happy family, I am so happy you chose me for your photography!

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!

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 Maternity Photographer | "L" Maternity

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.

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
