Kris and Alisa visited the studio for a family session with their little girl, Grace.
Grace was full of fun and adventure during the session. She LOVED to dance and insisted we play only the most bee-boppy music we could find.
I always enjoy my time with this sweet family!
It was a freezing cold afternoon when we bagan our journey into the Pass. The temperature hovered between 0ºF and 10ºF, depending on the location of the sun in relation to the mountain peaks. Standing in the shade during Alaska’s long winter can quickly cost you several degrees of warmth.
This family were troopers and took on the cold like true Alaskan champs! The pay-off for their intrepid nature shows in their images.
Another wonderful family I’ve had the privilege of getting to know since their wedding day (when Brandon forgot the wedding ring at the house… but everything turned out great and I *never* bring that story up. ever.)
Brandon and Kiri have 3 gorgeous kids who have become very familiar with The Picture Lady over the years and how we do things. I love it when they visit and I don’t mind at all that Leo the Great Dane has replaced me as their favorite person to see at the studio.
Happy holidays, guys, I’m so happy I get to watch your family grow!
One of my favorite ‘Picture Lady families are back for their annual family portrait session!
The oldest of this little family, Brody, is a big time hockey player. At 5 years old he’s already got more ice time than quite a few folks I know. It seemed fitting, since this WAS a session near his birthday, we took some extra time to get some shots of him in his gear.
Brody’s little sister, Blake, wanted in on the action as well… maybe next year.
I’m thinking Dad is going to have two hockey players on his hands.
Jason and Megan are building a new house. And they need images to put on the walls of that new home! I was delighted to spend some time with this sweet, young family. We played, ran, laughed and oh yeah, took some pictures as well. Their active little girls kept me in stitches the entire time. I love kids!
Rena called recently with a request; a 20x30 gallery wrap wall print of her husband and daughter with their shared passion; a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
I’ve worked with this sweet family a few times before and was all too happy to oblige Rena’s request. We scheduled the shoot and prepared ourselves to deal with the inclement weather Alaska has had most of this summer. Only, when the day arrived, we were surprised to enjoy a fantastic day with outstanding views of Pioneer Peak and Knik Glacier!
We definitely took advantage.
