My desire is to breathe life into traditional portraiture, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
My photography sessions are artfully curated to produce beautiful, modern, Alaskan portraits. Designed and inspired by the movement, life, and energy our family and loved ones bring us. These sessions are all photographed outside in the beautiful, raw landscapes that I call home. I work with both local Alaskans and family’s visiting our great state on their trip of a lifetime. These sessions are all purposed with a vision to capture the love and connection that brings us so much meaning. These session are designed for both human and furry families.
Please contact me for more information on booking your Alaska photography session. These sessions should be booked as far in advance as possible, to take advantage of our fast and fleeting summers. Please also keep in mind that fall sessions can be chilly, so please plan accordingly when choosing the time of year that will be best suited to the age of your children.
All session are outdoors and on location. I live in Girdwood, Alaska (30 minutes South of Anchorage) and book all my client sessions in the nearby area. Most of the locations in my guide are between Potters Marsh (just outside Anchorage) and Turnagain Pass (20min South of Girdwood). I have a location guide that I send to all my clients, so we can choose the perfect spot for your Alaskan portraits. I will also book sessions outside of this travel area, but these sessions would incur an additional travel fee (Seward, Hatchers Pass, Homer).
What you wear on the day of your session is important. I help my clients select clothing that will work together and produce lovely movement within their photographs. I have a clothing guide that I send out to all my booked clients well in advance of their session, so they have plenty of time to make selections.
My photography sessions are a mix of directed portraits and candid moments. I provide gentle direction to all my clients, to create and shape moments that can be captured on digital film. I do not expect any of my clients to naturally know what to do in front of a camera, as none of us our models. Clients find my methods to be relaxed, while giving them the confidence to look their best. By the end of the session, we will be the best of friends.
