I had the pleasure of being able document this video profile for this lovely couple who is currently going through their adoption journey! They are so fun-loving, kind and caring and I know they will be amazing parents to whomever is lucky enough to be adopted by them! If you know of anyone who you think may be able to help them, please feel free to share!
I was so excited to be able to capture fellow photographer, Diane Peer of Luminance Photography and her adorable little family in Eagle River this past summer! I loved how easy going and fun they were! Isn’t their little guy just stinking adorable?!
Crystal and her babies were so stinking sweet! I adored (and envied) how calm and kind they were and you could just tell they adored their mama and each other to pieces!
Another one of my absolute favorite families and my first time capturing their newest addition for some first birthday shots! Folks, wrangling your family together for a family session isn’t always easy, and not every image is going to be pure perfection of everyone smiling and looking directly into the camera- but life isn’t perfect, and I don’t want to capture perfect…I want to capture real! Tara and Jake, I adore your little family!!
The Davis Family are my most loyal family, Ive been photographing them for YEARS! I love that I’ve been able to see the kids grow up, along with being able to see their little fur baby too! (I may have a soft spot for pugs) :) We had so much fun walking around beautiful Reflections Lake in the prime of Autumn!
This family was one of the most adventurous families I have had the pleasure of photographing! We hiked up a steep Alaskan mountain trail to get these views!!
The love you see in these images is about as genuine as it gets- cutest family ever!
I wil say it over and over again, now that I have a son- I have such a soft spot for little boys, they are just SO precious and snuggly and love their mamas!! :) You can tell these brothers are going to be best buds!
This fun and laid back family joined me up at Flattop Mountain, and their adorable dog tagged along!
If you are every hesitant about brining your dog, don’t be… they add so much to a session and I realize that even though it sometimes makes the chaos of a session even more chaotic, they are part of the family too… so I am totally up for families bringing their fur babies too!
This is my beautiful sister and her daughter and I am so lucky that I get to capture snippets of their relationship every year! Little Cedar is equal parts sweetheart and firecracker who wears her heart on her sleeve, she just loves her mama with all her heart! All it takes is 10 minutes to capture some gorgeous lifelong memories-we literally walked down to my parents backyard and snapped these in a few minutes! Don’t hesitate on whether or not to get in front of the camera with your loved ones, it is ALWAYS worth it!
Never take for granted the moments that we have with our kids while they are little- give them those big juicy kisses on the lips, squeeze them as tight as you can and throw them up in the air as high as you can!
It is just so bittersweet seeing them grow and change...but to fight against time stealing away these moments with our babies, we can take back the power by really BEING with them, looking into their eyes and seeing them, playing with them and loving them with all of our hearts.
