Featured: "Creative Newborn Photography" in Alaska Parent's Winter 2018-2019 Issue

A sequence of my photographs are featured in the current winter issue of Alaska Parent Magazine piece on creative newborn photography. You can see the whole article here.

The more important point of this post, however, is that my friend Ali is a genius.

She knew she wanted to do Catch Me If You Can sessions for her soon-to-be third baby, but then she had another thought. She asked if she could use the year-long CMIYC package (5 sessions) to document her pregnancy as it progressed - and my response was, WHY HAVE I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?

It was so much fun to document this special chapter. Of course, the sibs stole the show…but with that kind of cuteness, how could you go wrong?

Leah & Sam & Teddy in the Peonies | Fairbanks Mother + Child Photographer

I was so happy that I had not one, not two, but three clients who decided to use last summer's "Little Sessions" in the peony fields at Alaska Peony Flowers as Mother + Child Sessions.  Leah, Sam, and Teddy are first up.  I can't look at this session without smiling so much it hurts my face.  What about you?  

(Pssst!  This year's Little Sessions in the Peonies will be in July.  If you want the first heads up when it's time to book, make sure you join my mailing list!)

Brittany & Arianna | Fairbanks Mother + Child Photographer

I think every photographer in Alaska faces the gravitational pull of BLAH near the middle of winter, when the light wanes and it seems like day will never again last more than three hours.  

This session was the antidote: the perfect reminder that even on the shortest day of the year, all you need to truly light up a room is love.  (Well, that, and a window.  But you get my drift.)  

Booking Now: Milk Bath & Herbal Bath Sessions

I know the bathtub might seem like a weird place for a session, but seriously, it's magic every. time.

Hear me out.

Milk baths have been a "thing" since the time of Cleopatra, who was said to have bathed in "the milk of asses" (of the donkey variety) as part of her beauty regimen.  The lactic acid in the milk acts as a mild exfoliant for the skin; the fat makes a natural moisturizer; aaaaand it's just plain cool.  Add some epsom and essential oils (and perhaps a few flowers...) and it's a beautiful experience, inside and out.  

Herbal baths have long been a favorite of mine, first and foremost for their soothing, restorative properties so appreciated by the bodies of new mamas and new babies alike.  (I have more information about why herbal baths are so darn cool on my FAQ page.)

They're also really pretty.  

I am now offering stand-alone bath sessions for a special rate of $250 for those wanting a unique and beautiful maternity, newborn, or mother + child session.  Sessions include all bath supplies, up to 30 minutes of shooting in the tub, and a complete set of 15-25 high resolution finished images + print release. 

AND.  'Tis almost the season for outdoor milk baths (yes, it's possible!), so sign up to take advantage of the sun while you can!  

If you have any questions or would like to talk about booking your session, please drop me a line!
