Flamingos in Alaska

I was asked to photograph some unusual clients a few weeks ago. Our local Young Life group wanted to advertise a fundraiser to help kids get to camp. Thus, I spent a Saturday afternoon in the company of several plastic pink friends and an awesome assistant, Heidi. We traveled around the Mat-Su Valley posing the birds in key locations. We had a lot of fun creating fun shots with them. Here are a few of my favorites.

An Ode to Snow

We knew you would come. You always come. But why did you wait so long this year? Do you hear all of the cheering for your appearance this morning? Now our world is frosted and so much more cheerful. My fireplace seems more cozy. My day seems filled with more hopes and dreams. I almost don't want to leave my house today... as it will surely mar the beautiful, sparkling landscape. Christmas seems somehow more tangible. Winter adventures are on their way. And oh, the photos that are waiting to be taken!

I am so glad you finally came, Snow!

I had such a blast with these ladies. Lots of laughter and beautiful smiles. They have been close friends since they were little girls and wanted to have photos together for their senior year.

Here are some favorites. You can check out the entire slideshow here.

Alaska Grown and proud of it!

They really should have a cd out... just so we can put this one on the cover

Check out all of their beautiful, blue eyes.

Thanks for the fun afternoon, girls!

Something New

I discovered these Mini Accordion Albums not too long ago. The more I looked into them the more I loved them! Yesterday, I got my first order and they look awesome.

They are 3x3 (square) or 2.5x3.5 (rectangle)... perfect to carry in a purse or have in your desk at work. Then there are the covers... lots to choose from AND they are magnetic so the book stays closed when you carry it around. They come in sets of 3 so they make great gifts, too.

I think my clients are going to love these Mini Accordion Albums as much as I do!
