A winter session…

The Lena family wanted a family session to have their son’s 2 year birthday photos taken. I’m so glad they were up for outdoor shots! On the way to the park, it was dense fog…but the clouds lifted and it was truly breath taking! Enjoy! And happy birthday Dennis!12691011754213

Just a walk…

It’s amazing what just a walk will do for the soul. I was out for under 20 min, and it improved my entire day. I have no clue why it’s so hard to remember this. We have beauty at our finger tips to view, soak in, enjoy…I will take another walk today. Enjoy yesterday’s view of Winner Creek Trail87463152

Mandy & Andrew

Mandy and Andrew were married in September of this year, but weren’t able to have a photographer there. Mandy recently contacted me to have their photos taken, and I suggested she get back in her dress and get those wedding portraits taken! Boy was it worth it! The day couldn’t have been more beautiful!

We chose Beluga Point, as it’s one of their favorite spots. The sun made it’s debut, but so did the wind! Mandy was a trooper!

Amber of COR Cosmetics did her makeup and Natasha with Alaska Knit Nat made her stunning bouquet and flower crown. Enjoy!!

Twins and fall leaves make for a great photo session!

4 year old twins, 30 minutes, and I was exhausted…GO MOM! I have mad respect for mom’s, especially single moms (and dads) that are doing it day in and day out…I have teenagers myself and vaguely remember the baby/toddler/grade school age – maybe it was the sleep deprivation?? Lol! I’m quickly reminded when I have kiddos running circles around me at sessions, how much patience and love it takes to raise beautiful little humans. Enjoy!brownblog-10

Alaska never ceases to amaze.

Sunday was one of those days that blew me away…the beauty was inspiring. I had never been to this part of Hatcher Pass. The Mystrom family followed me down a road we had never been and we were so glad we kept going! Enjoy!

“Life’s just one great journey. It’s a road we travel as we go from point A to point B. What makes that journey worthwhile is the people we choose to travel with, the people we hold close as we take steps into the darkness and blindly make our way through life. They’re the people who matter.” – Dr. Suess
