She got married, had a baby, moved to Alaska for her husband’s new job, continues to work in a professional field, bought one home, sold it remodeled the new one, and then had baby #2. All within just a few years. What women can handle is beyond amazing, you guys. For real. And she makes it look like a piece of cake. I know what that kind of transition is like because I did it myself, and I know for a fact it isn’t always as easy as it might look on the outside. I loved being able to spend an hour in this sweet family’s home preserving some memories from their early days as a family of four. Because these moments of rocking your baby to sleep can get lost in a blur, but truly they are THE moments.
I have been MIA around here for a while, and I’m not gonna lie...not sure that I’m breaking the fast quiiiiite yet. It hasn’t been for lack of shooting or beautiful people to share (see these guys? Exhibit A) I’ve been taking a breather, finding some space and rest, and it’s been 👌🏼 I’m planning on sharing and blogging some things like: -a before and after post of our home remodel! (Which is still and might forever be ‘in process’) -a big life update -my approach to newborn photography...because I’ve encountered a lot of confusion about that lately. -alllll the shoots and weddings that I haven’t shared in the past few months. One main thing that has come out of taking time away is that I’m feeling very grateful for MY people. My faithful clients, the ones who I have worked with many times who keep coming back, and the ones who I click with from the first ‘hello’. It is you that keep me here and coming back for more, I wouldn’t do it without you! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️❤️❤️
That’s my sister and nephew - aren’t they the cutest? Henrik was THIS excited for about .5 seconds before he was totally over it. Thank goodness for quick shutters. 😅 Can’t wait to meet baby #2 in January. 💞
I was up at Summit Lake for 3 shoots in the past couple weeks and no snow...but something happened in the last few days because now it’s Winter up there! 💨❄️ So glad I snuck these in first because this place is a stunner in the Fall.
Sincerely enjoying spending time with the people I’m shooting (and vice-versa!) is vital to making good work, in my opinion. If there’s no ‘click’ in relationship between clients and the photographer, I think it totally shows in the end result. I’m thankful that most of the time I get to work with the right clients for me. I have to trust that when I put myself and my work out there on my site/blog/social that it will attract the right ones and that the rest will find someone who is right for them.
I’ve been shooting a lot but not taking the time to share. Sometimes the world of social media and the constant need to share kinda brings me down...does that happen to anyone else? (Actually, I know I does.) So, I’ve taken a little breather. But I’ll tell you - the fall colors and light have been blowing me away! I’m so thankful for our beautiful extended Fall this year. 🍂
When simple wrist corsages are displayed so beautifully they deserve a post all their own 🤩 (but I couldn’t resist sharing some of my other favorite details from this day too). I’ve always appreciated beauty and attention to detail - two things that I see in abundance when I get to work with @bloomsburyblooms and @blommadesigns
This was my final wedding of the year, in one of my favorite places to shoot on a stunning Fall night with the sweetest couple you could imagine. Perfect end to a fabulous season! I have so many that I can’t wait to share in depth on the blog this Winter🥂 I’ll tell you something...the end of wedding season doesn’t mean the work slows down! It’s album design/editing wrap up/blogging/back-end and PORTRAIT season now 🎊 (This wedding: @alaskadestinationweddings @bloomsburyblooms @hairbyjennak @rev.dorothy )
I am in complete awe of the glorious temps we’ve had for the last 2 weeks in Anchorage! On Rachel & Ian’s wedding day I wore short sleeves (no jacket) and sunglasses on the glacier! These two were a treat to photograph, what a stunning and truly sweet couple. 💓 @akbridalinspiration @hair.makeupbyamber @jeremiahcox @anchoragehelicoptertours @simplepetal
We got to hop off the helicopter to explore a new little mountain spot after the glacier elopement. @alaskadestinationweddings and I literally got to point out the window at a spot that looked extra stunning and the pilot said ‘yeah, we can make that happen’ ...and then I died and went to heaven 🤩
