Chelsa & her little guy, Jackson

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.

How to capture your summer

Every year, I try to do a 100 days of summer project. Summer’s are crazy hectic, can sometimes feel stressful and always go by waaaay too quickly - but these personal projects are always a gift to be able to look back upon at the end of summer.

It never fails to make me realize all of the amazing memories we make, even on the most mundane of days! AND bonus...sometimes creating fun actives for the kids to do for the sake of a good shot, ends up being some of the most fun memories they will have throughout the summer!

My top rules on how to document your summer:

  • Bring your camera everywhere, commit to it...
  • Find activities that your kids enjoy doing, and they will be more willing to want their picture to be taken

sprinkler time = fun

  • Don’t wait for the weather to be good to capture memories, fun can be had in all of the elements!
  • Bring props, but make sure they are props that can flow well into the story of your day. If you are going to the beach, bring a fun hat, beach towel or blanket…if it is raining, have them use an umbrella… you get the picture!

summer hats create fun shadows

  • Try to make a list of things you want to remember about them and capture that! i.e.: My daughter loves to bring me flower and/or weed bouquets and I know she won’t be doing that for much longer, so I made a point to capture it!

  • Which brings me to next point, WRITE things down-make lists, it is the Only way I get anything accomplished in my life! :) 
  • Create a scavenger hunt of things you want to find or things for your kiddos to find and check them off as you go- you can make the list as small or as big as you want, but I can guarantee that fun will be had by all in trying to accomplish checking items off of your list!  
  • Create a grid or an album of all the pictures you took! Your kids will love to look back upon all of the amazing memories you made throughout summer as much as you! This app make it super easy! https://thelenslab.com/collect
  • If you feel like taking it to another level, print your favorites! I am a huge advocate of printing your images… my favorite consumer lab is: https://www.mpix.com

enjoy documenting your family! it is one of the most important things you can do! Be your  families storyteller!

I have been photographing the Turner family for a few years now and they are just the cutest! They are moving out of state and wanted one last photoshoot with our majestic views, so we decided upon Eklutna Lake... and of course, the weather was not cooperating! UGH! May in Alaska... they are a tough bunch though and we made do! I am so happy to have been able to capture some pictures of their last days here!

This family was up for a family vacation from the lower 48 and contacted me to capture some family pictures of them that had gorgeous Alaskan views... I feel pretty lucky that this spot is literally in the middle of suburbia, we didn't have to go far at all for this beauty!! I am so excited I was able to photograph them, they are as adorable in person as they look in their pictures, and can you tell I like to have fun during my photoshoots?! Laughter is a MUST!
