Michael – Class of 2017

Michael first stood in front of my lens during his girlfriend’s senior session, so when it came time to do his own photos he already knew what to expect.  He’s definitely an Alaskan guy, so we used the rustic backdrops …

Abby – Class of 2017

Although the fireweed had already bloomed out for the season, it still made an amazing backdrop for Abby’s senior portraits.  I’m so glad I found this location just in time for her session and she was game to give it …

The Humphreys

The Olsons

The Olsons braved temps in the teens to get a few quick portraits done with the mountains in the background and even made sweet DIY Christmas signs!  Although their session went quickly, they were all smiles and had fun in …

Awaiting Miles

Although we scheduled a maternity session for the morning of the Carlsen’s baby shower, a change in work schedules meant dad wouldn’t be able to participate.  Our solution was to do photos at their home during their shower which allowed …

Ainsley’s family originally planned for her aunt to take her newborn pictures while visiting Alaska, but when travel plans changed they contacted me.   Although the effects of her breach birth limited our pose options, we made use of the large …

The Mothershead Family

When I met this adorable family at a local holiday bazaar they were interested in doing family photos since they had a young son who would soon turn 1 and had never got around to doing newborn photos.  I also later learned they …

The Callaway Family

Having always done typical family portraits in a small studio, the Callaways were super excited to do an outdoor family session. Although we chose the same location where I did ‘frosty’ pictures the week prior, there was no frost to …

Kylie – Class of 2015 (Fall)

We caught the last of the fall color in Kylie’s fall session before the wind shook all the leaves to the ground last week!  This was her second session with me after her summer session back in August, and yet …

The Fetterlys

The Fetterlys have never had family pictures before their session with me, so their almost 2 year-old son wasn’t too keen on the idea of sitting still and smiling for the camera.  Having worked with several young families, I’m used …

Garrett @ 6 Months

I’m so enjoying watching little Garrett grow, after photographing him as a newborn and 3 month old.  This time around we got a few giggles and some grins out of him, but he still showed his personality with a few …

Lily – Class of 2015

Lily was my third senior this season.  Although I’ve worked with her mom, who is a pastor, many times at weddings I hadn’t met Lily until the day of her shoot.  She had a wonderful quiet confidence that was immediately …

The Tigners

The Tigners came to me as a referral of a referral client, which is the best compliment I could ask for!  We selected a location I’ve been itching to use for a session since moving to the mainland, and with …
