Lions, Tigers, and Toddlers oh my! Anchorage Fall Family Photographer

anchorage fall family

With fall here in Alaska that means that family portrait sessions are in full swing! I love this time of year and absolutely love capturing Alaska’s families in Anchorage’s stunning fall colors. I know one of the biggest concerns for all parents when they book a session is, “How will by child act?”. ย Trust me when I say it is fine! I LOVE toddlers. The more personality the better! They aren’t misbehaving if they aren’t cooperating. Through all my sessions I try and do a mix of posed and candid shots. I know you need that shot that goes on the holiday card or the one that grandma wants with everyone’s smiling faces. I totally get that! I also try to capture the essence of their personality in THIS stage in their quickly growing life and in THIS stage of your quickly changing seasons! So if they give me a grumpy face, totally fine! I will also get the naughty smirk, the belly laugh, the hands as they hold treasures they have discovered, and those tiny feet as they explore new things. I will get an unruly lock of hair and that endearing dimple. I also have many many many other tricks up my sleeve ๐Ÿ˜‰ Moods for toddlers change quickly so I truly am not bothered by the occasional tantrum or defiant stare. I know that it will pass and we will find something they will be interested in soon. I always recommend lots of snacks, because lets face it, we all get hangry and snacks are never not a good idea ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am working on a new family prep guide that will help guide you and prepare you for your session, with things you CAN control. However, when it comes to your child or toddler and you are worrying if they are going to cooperate, trust me when I say we got this. Their personality is what I want to see and I want to capture them exploring and playing and doing the things that all toddlers and kids love to do. More importantly please don’t miss out on this amazing time to photograph your kiddo’s. This is a short season and quickly it will change too.

Happy Fall! Anchorage Child and Family Photographer

I LOVE meeting people. I enjoy making connections and meeting random people whenever/wherever. It is one of the reasons why I LOVE owning my photography business. I get to meet sooooooo many new people and connect with them over their kiddos and families. I am good at chatting on the phone/texting and especially in person face to face conversation. Here’s a little secret though, I am NOT so good at online social media or blogging! GAH! It is such a critical part of my business and such a wonderful opportunity to connect and share with a much wider audience, but I freeze. I stare blankly at my screen. ย There are so many bloggers and writer friends that I admire! So I have been challenged to blog for 30 days to help me get over my fears. To help me get the words out of my brain, off my tongue, and into my writing! September is a perfect time since I LOVE LOVE LOVE fall. There shouldn’t be a shortage of sharing or blog topics! So here we go! 30 days of blogging or bust!

Summer Sunshine | Anchorage Outdoor One Year Session

Oh this sweet sweet girl. She has such a sweet spirit and is just as adorable as her siblings! We took advantage of gorgeous evening summer light and let her play and explore and get a few cuddles from mama too <3 I love capturing all the moods and expressions. Even the serious ones at this age.

I am always soooo soooo sad when the baby plans end! I love following these little ones throughout the year! She was full of energy and smiles and I absolutely adored our session <3

Summertime Boys

I have loved this winter, but it is time for the spring and summer itch. Especially, as these days get longer and the sun graces us with her warmth! This was a session I did a few years ago for a project called The Beautiful Child Project that showcases children that are beautiful both inside and out. Joel battled Leukemia and won and his story is truly amazing, so are his parents. You can follow his mom’s blog HERE. She is hilariously funny and full of amazing recipe’s. I know because she feeds me and that is why we are friends ๐Ÿ˜‰ Her boys are pretty awesome too and this session couldn’t have been more perfect! Brothers. Sun. Gummy worms. Backyard forts. Sigh. Summer is on its way folks!


Arizona 2015!

Hello lovelies!!! I am so excited to announce that LMP is heading to bright and sunny AZ! We won’t mention that it could quite possibly be for my 20 year high school reunion, shhhhh. Coincidentally I have a family reunion that same weekend! I am so excited to see everyone and of course I couldn’t travel without offering a few sessions! I will be taking a very limited number of sessions from October 18th-25th. All sessions must be booked before September 15th so I can plan my trip accordingly and ensure planning time, errrrr shopping time, for styled sessions ๐Ÿ˜€ I know this is a crazy busy time with fall, back to school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, even Christmas right around the corner, and the excitement of a new year but it has been 4, yes FOUR years, since I have been back to AZ and I certainly don’t know when I will be back again ๐Ÿ˜€ I am looking forward to seeing all your pretty faces <3 Follow the link below for booking information and packages and as always PLEASE do not hesitate to email me with any questions!
