Just reminiscing about that one time I got to photograph Snow White...NBD 😍
Puppy Waylon was V excited to finally be brought out of the truck and allowed to join the photo shoot 🐶
The biggest, tiniest stretch of all. 😍 I’ve watched so many friends and clients welcome new babies this month. Needless to say, I’m extra-loving my newsfeed lately. Congratulations to all of the new parents!
In Spring of 2016 when we were just starting to talk about moving, Jamie (my property investment loving husband who surfs Zillow and Craigslist for fun) showed me a property online that was a total wreck. It had decks that were in total disrepair, walls boarded up with plywood, an interior that had been half-way gutted, burst pipes, a jungle for a ‘yard’ and views that didn’t lie. I dismissed it without much of a glance but he kept coming back to it because the location just seemed too good to be true. He kept talking about ‘outbuildings’, backing up to the state park and hiking trails. . In early 2017 we decided to just drive over and give it a chance. We met a driveway that hadn’t been plowed all winter long so we broke a trail and hiked on up! I remember walking in to the freezing cold living room stepping on dozens of dead flies to check out the view and knowing in my gut that we were going to live here someday. We had just literally seen nothing that compared to the view and location that was actually in our price range, and the house had great lines, even in that messed up state. . We may have seemed a little crazy at the time but now we feel like we’re on vacation every single day and are 100% confident that the insane amount of work that has been done and all of the work still undone is worth it. I always thought I might like home design, now I’d say I’m a head over heels. . Next time I’ll trust the instincts of my Zillow-surfing husband a little more quickly! (Not that we’re moving any time soon...)
Reminiscing about this drop dead gorgeous scene from early 2017. Corey & Tanisha hired @blommadesigns to dream up and design their event and it was heaven to photograph. Here’s to more like this in 2018!
UPDATE! The spot is filled! Wheeee that was quick! Thanks so much for the interest! Model Call! I need a couple to photograph this Saturday afternoon in Anchorage. 30-40 minute time commitment, between 1pm and 4pm. You don’t need to be fancy or have modeling experience, just two real people who want some fun wintry photos together. I’ll be teaching a new photographer while shooting. Payment is a gallery of edited photos from the shoot. Interested?!
Happy November! I think I’m finally ready for all the snow and cold, which is a good thing because...it’s definitely here.
This time of year always brings out the need to be crafty and decorate and do all the house projects and I LOVE it! I bought paint for four different projects yesterday and I’m itching to finally put things on the walls of our new house. 💃🏻🔨🖼 Anyone else feel this way as Winter approaches? (Image from a @blommadesigns wreath making workshop last year which was so incredibly fun!)
These two flew in from Seattle for their engagement session and totally embraced our First Snow. Somehow winter sessions bring their own kind of warmth, wouldn’t you say?
Clare told me that she first met Jamar at @anchorageyoga ...there has never been a better ‘how we met’ scenario and finding out that little detail made me love these two (and Anchorage Yoga) even more. ❤️
