Fall is fast approaching… l Anchorage family photography l

It seems fall is quickly sneaking into the Anchorage area. The signs of all are all around us. There is even termination dust on the mountain tops! I LOVE FALL! I’ve been waiting for the crisp air, warm sweaters, and the gorgous colors! I am currently scheduling sessions in September and the space is very limited this year. So, please email me if you want to reserve a session time. My email is laura@laurastoddard (dot) com
I am so far behind on my own family pictures (isn’t that horrible, but true!). I wanted to share a beautiful picture of my favorite model from our session last fall…

Hemenway family… l Anchorage family photography l

As a photographer, it is exciting to truly captured the moment and give clients a snapshot into their lives to treasure forever. There was a lot of “oooohhhhh sweet” and “awwwwwe” when I was proofing the session! The family played and kept their little guy happy and I was able to catpure these “lifestyle” or “journalistic” images. I love this style because they truly capture the moment and the love this family shares for each other. Thank you Jocelyn and Ken for allowing me to photograph her sweet baby!
Here are a couple images from the session

Family photography… sneak peek for Badgley family

I’m so excited to share this sneak peek! I worked with this family a few years ago and the sweet, playful images of the girls are still on my site. So, when Jessica called a few weeks ago I knew it would be a great session. The girls were so sweet and just full of personality! The sihlouettes are my personal favorites but we also found the prettiest little patch of flowers that photographed beautifuly. We were fighting the bright sun and squinting eyes but I’m so happy with the images and excited to share! Enjoy Jessica…

Storybook Albums…

I am trying post more samples of boutique products that are available to clients. I am happy to show some sample pages from the VINTAGE CREAM album. This design is perfect for a baby boy or girl or a family session. I love the color palete! It has soft browns, greys and tans and the elements are simple with a vintage flair. Custom designed storybooks are $325 for an 8×8 hardcover book. The book includes approximatly 20 images. Here are a few sample pages from the album using images from a recent newborn session…

Brit & Nate l Anchorage Wedding Photography l

Brit and Nate were married at the rustic, truly Alaskan, Raven’s Nest in Girdwood. The home is nestled in the woods with a beautiful flowing glacier stream. As I began my drive down the Turnagain Arm the sun began to shine and it was a perfect evening for their outdoor ceremony. The bride looked stunning and the colors were so rich and fun! The ceremony was simple and focused on their love for each other with personal vows and a candle ceremony that included all their friends and family! The food was all homemade and simply delicious. The cake was being baked as the guest arrived and the smells that filled their air were spectacular. It truly was a wonderful meal and I would highly recommend the Raven’s Nest to any bride that is interested in a unique, truly Alaskan wedding with the most amazing hospitality. It was a special evening for Brit and Nate to begin their life together as husband and wife.

Life is full of beauty…

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind.”
