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!
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!!
This is a Growler Caddy in the dark stain, it holds 2 growlers, 4 750ml bottles, (wine bottles) or 8 12oz beer bottles.
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.Here is a peek at the Red stain color, we will post a final product tomorrow.

It rained most of the day on July 25, 2016 at Raven Glacier Lodge. But it was a perfect day for Megan and Jared and all the friends and family who came out to witness their beautiful and intimate ceremony.
There were so many personal touches and hand made items in this wedding. Megan’s dad, Craig hand carved the chilly pepper ring holder “7-25-16 J & M”. And keep scrolling for the jaw dropping hand crafted arbor. Craig and his beautiful wife Conita designed and decorated the work of art!
Jared reads a journal entry Megan wrote to him…there may have been tears.
If Megan wants to quit her day job, she should most definitely look into becoming a floral designer…she purchased the peonies from P&M Gardens in Eagle River, and assembled this stunning bouquet herself.Megan patiently waits for her guy…
Yes, that’s right, Jared’s eyes are closed and Megan snuck a peek! He just couldn’t keep his eyes of his beautiful bride.Ok, what do you say we go say “I do”?
It’s so wonderful having my hubby, Tommy with me on wedding days…the behind the scenes shots are always my favorites.I had to…
John from Ondago DJ Entertainment is fun & energetic, and his songs are perfectly timed, and his choice of music is perfection!
The father/daughter and mother/son dances had all of us tearing up…it was so special.
Today I needed to get lost in personal work… I remembered images I had taken in Alabama recently and decided to pick a few to share with you.
Mobile is warm, and inviting, but it’s also heavy and stubborn. The humidity wraps around you without asking permission, but it’s also very comforting. The colors hide out until certain times of the day, then they pop out at you when least expected. Enjoy!
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!
On June 11, Laura & Tye tied the knot at Majestic Valley Wilderness Lodge. WHAT a view! It was meant to rain that day, 70% chance to be exact, but there were definitely a lot of prayers said. The clouds even opened up at the moment we tried round two of the bride and groom’s portraits. It just couldn’t have been a more perfect day for these two. Enjoy their memories!
