Lifestyle Sessions

I get asked a lot if I shoot Newborn Sessions, and I always respond with, “I can come to your home and shoot a “lifestyle session” for you. It will mean that you’re in the photos…” There are some incredible newborn photographers here in Anchorage, two of which I recommend always, AK Design Studio or Autumn Clarkson Photography .

Lifestyle Sessions are more organic in nature and capture your home, and the family dynamic as it is.

This is the gorgeous Shibe family. I met Emma via email first. I was searching for a real estate agent, and I wanted someone that was not pushy, and would listen and be honest and fair. When I read her bio, I knew she was the one! Her and her partner Michelle were God sends for us. They are The dynamic duo at Anchorage Home Real Estate  if you’re in the market!

So back to family…the tables were turned for providing a personal service. I was honored to first capture some sweet baby belly shots for them before their precious girl arrived.

Home Grown

I love that even though these two love birds are getting hitched in Tennessee this summer, Sydney & Adam wanted photos while they were in town over Christmas.

I also love that this was the first image taken at Beluga Point and it looks like it could have been the last. They look at each other with such sweetness and respect. God Bless you two!12345678

Fall.Family.Forever Images.

I’m always so happy for families that ‘do the work’ it takes to schedule a family session, find outfits that look great together and make it to their session in one piece! HA! Or at least it may seem that way. But I’m happy because, like most things in this life, if they’re good and worth it, they take effort and heart. This precious family arrived at 5:58pm and left at 6:44 pm. 46 minutes later they now have images they can treasure forever. 46 minutes. Enjoy the beautiful Sternicki Family!1345678910111213

We’ve been busy around here! Our son Shea was accepted to be a part of an Ecology based trip to the Galápagos Islands! A team of 12 students  and 2 science teachers from Goldenview  will leave over spring break in March.

Since Shea’s dad is super handy and I can manage a paint brush, we came up with an idea of making and selling Growler/Beer caddies…a little unconventional for a middle schooler, but hey, they’re selling!!img_4701

This is a Growler Caddy in the dark stain, it holds 2 growlers, 4 750ml bottles, (wine bottles) or 8 12oz beer bottles.img_4539

This is the Beer/Wine Caddy in the Chestnut stain, it holds 8 12 oz. beer bottles, 6 22oz bottles, or 6 750ml wine bottles.img_4540Here is a peek at the Red stain color, we will post a final product tomorrow.img_4713

The Wiseman Family at McHugh Creek

Last week, The Wiseman family met me and my son at McHugh creek for their family photo session. They hadn’t had their photos taken since the kids were toddler age, so it was time. It was a gorgeous evening and what a treat to hang out with such a sweet family! Enjoy the beauty, and let this be a great reminder to get those photos taken, you won’t regret it!
