This family was so sweet and calm for having a three kids, including a newborn! That is one of the reasons I absolutely LOVE in home sessions, they are so much slower paced and everyone seems to be more natural and comfortable since they are in their own home and environment! If you are the on the fence about doing a session in your home because you don’t think your house if picture perfect enough, don’t be! I promise you all you will see when you are looking back at your pictures is the love and connection you have within your family!
I adore Shawna! I’ve known her since I was a kid and she is he sweetest person, not to mention a kick-ass athlete! She wanted to get a few pics of her with her doggies, who were hilarious frolicking in the snow!
P.S. I love it when people bring their dogs to their sessions! :)
Joan & Lloyd wanted to capture the amazing family that they created on their gorgeous Alaskan property. I have lived in Anchorage a long time and it’s rare to have a home that is on a beautiful creek with a meadow and a totem pole to boot! My goal was to capture their family and their love of Alaska, the outdoors, and fun family togetherness- I think I managed that, they were such a fun family!
You wouldn’t have known that it was an absolute ICE RINK outside during this session and we were slipping and sliding all over the place, but where there is a will there is a way and this family was determined to get a quick session in! We made it work and found some beautiful scenery in the process!
In Home Newborn Lifestyle Sessions are the best, I absolutely love the slower pace of them. There is something just so calming and serene about being in the presence of a tiny little newborn and their loving family. Even if you don’t think your house is “photo worthy”, that is the last thing that matters to me and hopefully will to you, my main goal is to capture the connection and love between you, your new bundle and your family.
I had the honor of photographing my stunning cousin, Amanda’s elopement at Pt. Waranzoff this past fall. There is something just so sacred and special about elopements- no bells or whistles, just the bride and groom and the people that mean the most to them! I absolutely loved being able to capture part of their love story, many congrats again to these two!

I have photographed The Swenor’s a few times now and I absolutely love their playful energy! We went over to Lake Hood and took some fun lifestyle portraits next to their plane, complete with aviators and all! :)
Tyler is in the process of getting his pilot’s license, so naturally we had to go get some pictures with his plane, and his rascally pup had to make a cameo for a few portraits as well! :)
I love it when seniors bring meaningful things along with them to their shoots- Nicholas brought his trusty pup to his session and I loved how much it relaxed him! He also brought along his hockey gear, which was fun to capture him in- he ended up getting the honor of getting ASAA High School Hockey Player of the Year! Congrats!
