Drawn to soft, creamy goodness and beautiful natural light, I believe that photography is all about emotion and connection; bringing you back to the moment when you held your little one for the first time. Those heart-felt moments cannot be replicated or replaced, but they can be forever remembered and cherished through the images we create.

Whether you want digital files, love having artwork on the walls, or treasure an album that tells your story- our goal is put these memories in your hands in a tangible way that you can enjoy each and every day.

Our Anchorage portrait studio welcomes the dearest newborns and families from across Alaska. As a baby and family photographer, I love natural light, true joy, and documenting your most heartfelt moments.

I've been serving the Greater Anchorage area for over 14 years, including Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, and other communities across Alaska, and specialize in maternity, newborn, baby, milestone, family, and motherhood portraits (which is my absolute favorite!).

Megan Marlene Photography established the pure, light, and airy style in Alaska and I strive to create the most wonderful experience for my clients and their families.

for the sentimental heart

newborn & Family photography IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

helping alaskan families document life's most heart-felt moments for over 14 years

hey ya'll

With three littles of my own, I know first-hand what it feels like to have your children grow up too fast. You can't even blink before the months and years pass by and it makes me want to hold onto each precious memory with both hands. And I'm not the only parent to feel that way. Understanding and sharing that heart-pull to document each season and milestone is what drives my photography and makes my heart truly happy.

Mama to 3, Client since 2018

These are some of our favorite photos ever taken of our family and they really embodied the essence I was hoping for, given this season of life.

Megan's attention to detail was so great and her studio has so many personal touches that make the photography experience comfortable for the whole family!

2018 & 2021 Baby Plan Member

It was so fun to watch her work her magic. Megan does beautiful work-that's easy to see. What you can't see, but I can tell you, is that the whole process is beautiful.

2015 & 2018 Baby Plan Member

My maternity pictures turned out beautiful and I could not be happier. She makes you feel at ease in front of the camera and the whole experience is very relaxed. Her photography style is impeccable. The pictures are flattering and flawless.

Expecting Mama

"She has captured so many precious moments from the last year for our family and somehow managed to get great shots with all 3 of our little boys, which is no small feat. We've recommended her to friends and now have their baby announcements with her photos gracing our fridge."

Mama to 3, Multiples Mama

We love Megan Marlene! We've used her for all 3 of our baby's newborn and milestone pictures. She's very good with babies, very gentle, and very patient with older kiddos!

2014, 2015, and 2021 Baby Plan Member

Megan did a beautiful job of capturing our little one in a newborn session. The studio was lovely and relaxing. We will treasure the sweet photos for years to come!

New Mama

I searched for many, many months to find the photographer who was just right for us. We have children ranging from 16-newborn and I was nervous about how the photos would work but Megan blew it out of the water! We had such a phenomenal experience I can't recommend Megan Marlene Photography enough.

Mama to 3

Megan Marlene Photography is simply the best! Megan has been taking pictures for our family annually since 2014. Our kids love her and look forward to their pictures with Miss Megan. If you are looking for a natural light photographer, look no further!
