There are so many details that go into a session, I do my best to take care of all of them so you can simply enjoy making these memories with your family. We'll chat before our session, going over all the details from location to wardrobe. We'll find out what you envision for our session together, and then I'll make it happen.
My Studio is located in East Anchorage and is filled with beautiful light, minimalist styling, and everything we could possibly need for our session. The Wardrobe is available for your use, there's a play area for the kiddos, a comfy couch, and lots of snacks and drinks so nobody gets hangry.
Outdoor sessions take place during the golden hours when the sunlight is just right. There are so many beautiful spots in Alaska and sessions can take place at one of many my favorite (very picturesque) locations or we'll go on an adventure together!
There's nothing stiff or fake about the portraits we create, and there's no need to say "cheese!" My sessions are all about making you feel comfortable, relaxed, and at ease; enjoying the moment so completely that you forgot photo sessions were supposed to be stressful & boring. Instead, everyone is grinning and laughing (even Dad!) and your heart is about to burst because you love them so much.
That's the kind of experience that I want for all my families. A fun, special time that is full of meaningful moments and shared memories. Ten years from now when you're looking at the newborn pictures with your almost-preteen, you'll remember the soft morning light in the studio, what dress you wore, dad's laugh at big brother's silly joke, and how your eyes filled with the happiest of tears as you all leaned in for a family cuddle. All of those memories, forever documented in an image, and forever cherished in your heart.
The joy of motherhood begins long before you hold your little one for the first time. From the moment you first find out the good news, everything changes. This is a season that you will never forget but is often the one most overlooked. Maternity sessions ensure that you have this one beautiful moment to look back upon, where the shared love and anticipation is forever recorded.
Maternity Sessions take place towards the end of your pregnancy, usually 28-35 weeks.
We plan everything, taking care of all the details, ensuring that you look and feel absolutely radiant. The studio wardrobe is filled with gorgeous gowns and flattering outfits, ready to show off your baby bump to perfection.
As one of the leading Anchorage and MatSu Valley newborn photographers, I've photographed hundreds of babies over the last decade. And each one has been my favorite.
Newborn sessions are calm, relaxing, and focus on the tangible moments of new parenthood. When your little one is no longer little, you’re going to look back on these pictures and remember every moment and how you felt during this season of your life. Authentic moments captured in the most beautiful way.
Sessions take place in the first 15 days after birth, when baby is oh-so-sleepy. But my natural, baby-led approach to photography allows us to capture newborn style portraits up to six weeks old.
They're only a baby for twelve months. And only a child for twelve years. It goes by all too quickly and each milestone, each stage, is worth saving. Through photography we document life's most treasured moments, record all the precious, overlooked details, and slow time down just a bit.
My Anchorage studio is designed with the child in mind. Soft blankets for cuddling and a bed to jump on (with mom & dad close at hand, of course), and the prettiest vintage high chair.
Or, let's go play outside! Children and babies are often happiest when outdoors and there are few things sweeter than a child dancing among wildflowers in the final golden light of the day.
Milestones are for ages 2mo-12yrs
We take snapshots with our phones all the time but when was the last time the whole family was in the picture? Too often we'll realize that it's been years since we had a real family portrait- and everyone grew up when we weren't looking. No snapshot or selfie can replace a portrait of your whole family, aka the people you love most in the world.
While the occasional family session does take place in the studio, most of the time we are outside. An outdoor session instantly sets everyone at ease and allows us freedom to just relax and simply "be" - together.
Gone are the days of stiff, posed portraits. Enter all things natural, honest, authentic, organic, and genuine. We all want a family picture of everyone looking at the camera and smiling happily, but the really special ones are filled with sloppy kisses, gleeful laughter, and bear hugs. And we'll capture all of it - each beautiful moment, and everything in between.
