I found that this last year was the year of portraits for me. It’s always interesting and a little surprising to go back through all the sessions and personal work, and find a common theme.
This is our son Shea, and below is his older sister, Kya. They spiffed up to tape their dad’s surprise birthday video, but meanwhile I snapped a few head shots by the window.
This was a January wedding in Kealakekua, Hawaii. Their wedding was held at the groom’s parent’s house just up the road. I love this photo, because these are the same steps my hubby and I posed on for our wedding portrait almost 18 years ago. It was so neat to be back at Kings Mansion to photograph this sweet couple!
Her look says so many things….but sometimes the best portraits taken are ones that aren’t planned…in an unfinished bedroom…next to a toilet. (LOL!)
Taken outside with a smoking tiki torch adding a little drama.
Window light, amazing eyes, and a beautiful lady.
No lights, just natural light spilling into this stinky alley way. But hey, in March, you take what you can get in downtown Anchorage.
Sibling love…the only moment these two were in perfect symmetry.
I couldn’t get over her hair! What a beauty! If I would have stepped back, you could then see that the concrete wall ends on either side of her. The downtown bus depot sure makes a pretty backdrop. 🙂
Little Archer really had no clue we were trying for an epic superhero portrait, but this shot wrapped it up!
Sometimes you have to tell mom to leave the bubbles, they are just too cute!
Our family made it to Homer again this year and we were able to have some family from Alabama join us! This is my cousin Aiden. A nice man let the boys pull in their own fish!
Sometime the light is so perfect I literally get teary eyed…just saying.
This was such a special and fun wedding. My hubby shoots weddings with me, so we both were able to capture his Captain’s big day for him and his lovely wife!
Point Woronzoff’s only tree…just kidding…. sort of. It made a great filter for the beautiful sunset.
Daddy’s girl. Back door window light in their living room. Who needs a studio! 🙂
I couldn’t pass up this face.
Pearl is my favorite little girl to photograph…I always get the same tragic, yet peaceful look from her.
I didn’t have to ask them to make these gestures…Money.
It’s a framer. Thankful I caught this.
Mom and Dad wanted this sweet shot, so glad it happened!
This mom and dad shot will be even more special when the kiddos are older. What a great family
