Although Teri has her hands full with 5 children ranging from a 2-year old to a teenager and a hard working husband, she still managed to style her entire brood for their mini-session. And she even brought her own props! Talk about a prepared client! A fan of my work for some time now, Teri first discovered my photography when we both lived in Kodiak. Now that we both live on the mainland, I had the opportunity to create some wonderful wintery images for their Christmas cards. Because they wanted snowy mountains for a backdrop we chose the Eagle River Nature Center, which is tucked up right at the base of the Chugach Mountains.
Her family is just as warm and friendly as she is and each member brings a different personality to the mix. They were all so busy having fun with each other that they never once complained about the cold, although the littlest did shiver while investigating the freshly fallen snow. They were all so easy to work with too – each ready to take a turn or pair up in the blink of an eye! If I need models for future projects I know just who to call. 🙂
