Jake & Jessica… Alaskan Engagement Photography

Meet my beautiful cousin, Jessica and her fiancé Jake. In less than a year our family will be celebrating with this beautiful couple in Minnesota and welcoming Jake into the McIntyre family!
I’m so excited Jake and Jessica came to Alaska so I could capture these special images. It was a quick trip by well worth it!
Luckily it was perfect weather for their session and we were able to capture a bit of Alaska’s beauty!
Here is a peek from their engagement session….

7 days old Baby Riley… Anchorage newborn photographer

Riley was a great baby for her newborn session! She wasn’t too interested in a nap and I was surprised at how alert she was for only 7 days old!
Mom and dad were just smitten with little Riley. It’s so exciting to capture these moments for new families and to watch families that I love continue to grow.
Congratulations on your sweet baby girl! ♥ Laura
Enjoy your sneak peek… Look at her little cheeks

Sweet baby Blake… Anchorage newborn photographer

It’s so amazing to capture special memories for my clients! I love to watch their families grow. It’s so special to photograph engagement sessions, weddings and then a newborn baby boy! Little Blake is 10 days old when he came to the studio and I couldn’t believe how awake this little guy was the entire session. He was so calm and hardly fussed but definitely wasn’t interested in a nap.
Here’s a peek from this Blake’s newborn session and a special Congratulations to the Fox family!
