Patiently waiting for spring…

After a long week and lots of grey skies and snow in Anchorage I am in desperate needed some color! I’m wishing for bright greens of budding trees, the warm yellow sunshine and the blue of the rivers and lakes! I wanted to share a few of my favorites from Memorial Day a few years ago. We like to camp at lake on the Kenai Peninsula and there’s usually still some snow and mud but the trees are usually blossoming and lake is completely thawed (cold but at least thawed). Spring time… I’m patiently waiting for you to arrive!

ALL BOY… l Anchoarge family photographer l

There are a few things that just scream little boy to me… superman, camouflage, a little mischievious smile and of course hockey! Edward meets all those requirements and is 100% boy. He even pulled out a hammer out of a pocket in his camo pants. How cute is that? I love that mom was willing to photograph him in one of his favorite t-shirts and this is one of my favorites!

6 month session for Miss Charolette…

I can’t believe it was time for Miss Charolette’s 6 month session. You can see her newborn images here. I love this age. They have the best smiles and Charolette was no exception. My favorite images are almost always the black and white images where your eye really focuses on the emotion and love. It is so sweet to see the love in her little eyes! These are the moments as a photographer that I enjoy the most! Thank you Mark & Brooke for letting me photograph your sweet girl!

A few of my favorites…

I have been meaning to post some of my favorites from recent sessions for awhile now. So, here they are- ENJOY!

Sweet baby Elizabeth… l Anchorage newborn photographer l

Here are a few images from baby Elizabeth’s session! She was such a doll and I can’t wait to share the images with her family! Here are a few with daddy and his uniform. I just love these ones! I love the uniform that is proudly displayed and his sweet baby girl. I know she will grow up to be so proud of her daddy!

Baby Plan… 6 month old session l Anchorage Children’s Photographer l

I had so much fun with little Frederick! This age is my favorite and I was so excited to see baby Frederick again. Last time I saw his was for his newborn session and it’s truly amazing how they change in just a few months! He was so full of smiles and giggles, just as I expected! It was so hard to pick a favorite (or two) to put on the blog. I will definitely be posting more from his session, but here are a few for now…
