Emily's Senior Session

It was one of those bright, spring afternoons when the snow sparkles and you have to squint more because of the reflection off the snow than the sun. Beautiful in every Alaskan way...

Emily and I met down by Matanuska River to take her senior portraits. Thanks for the honor of photographing you, Emily!

Here are some favorites. Click here for the entire slideshow.

Take a look at these! My first wedding albums from KISS Wedding Books arrived last week. I LOVE them!

A beautiful, sunny, spring day and four bright, cheerful faces... it doesn't get much better than that. These cousins were all together for the first time and we captured this moment in time for them. I have known most of the parents since they were all in high school. Kayaked and rafted with one of the grandma's and loved all of their extended family for a long time. So it was fun to get to know the next generation.

The Final Touches

June in Alaska. They had a great location and nearly perfect weather. And I had the honor of photographing it all. March in Alaska. A new house built for his bride. White walls in need of art. And I had the honor of helping Mayerly and Luke hang their photos from their beautiful wedding. It was so much fun to hang out with them again and see their walls transformed by art. I think their newly decorated walls look amazing!

Spring is Coming.

Spring is coming. How can I tell?

The sun is setting well past 6pm now.
The Iditarod starts tomorrow.
I feel the travel bug itching my feet daily, (too bad it is a frugal insect).
The snow is looking dingy from melting.
The words 'Spring Break' are said gleefully by young and old.
All things pastel and 'Easter' are seen in the stores.
Target thinks that we should all be buying sun dresses and tank tops(however, highs in the 30's discourage this practice unless you are one of the lucky ones going to warm places for Spring Break).
Alaskans can be seen wearing only light jackets and long sleeve shirts as they declare it to be a warm day (highs in the 30's can be deceiving with the sun warming us again).
Cars are showing the tell tale signs of 'break up'. A thick coat of road slime that disguises the actual color of all vehicles except the one just pulling out of the car wash.

So here is to the powerful hope of Spring. We are so glad that it comes each year.
