Maternity Photography

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.

Anchorage Maternity Photographer | "K" Maternity

This session. THIS session. I'm fairly spoiled by this location that we had our session, my first time taking pictures in Hatcher's Pass. I've been up there before in the winter for sledding, but for maternity photos in the fall, I'm pretty sure sledding can't top that experience.

Quick confession about this session: I was sick. A couple of my other favorite maternity sessions were done while I was sick, so maybe germs = creativity for me. Here's the thing about being a photographer in the fall in Alaska though; you can't stop, you can't blink, or the fall will be gone and you'll have missed the colors. Last year I think I got 2 fall sessions in with the colors before a wind storm came through and I think our fall lasted less than a week. So germs aren't going to be able to stop me from going out and being able to capture this gorgeous time of year.

This couple was SO much fun. They took me to all their favorite spots up the Hatcher's pass road, and everything was breathtaking. Add in a couple of beautiful red dresses from Sew Trendy Accessories, and every image came out gorgeous.
