Hallifax Family | Mat-Su Photographer

Just catching up on blog posts…. and I had to share this lovely family with you.  They are some of the sweetest people I know, and taking photos on location (which I love) at their home was a blast!

Faelyn [Newborn] | Wasilla, AK photographer

Today I had the honor of taking photos of a darling little girl who is the sister her brother will protect and the daughter cherished by her parents.

Faelyn was born last month and was such a trooper during the session.  All she wanted to do was look for Mom and stay awake!

Donovan and Wendy [Engagement Session] – Hatcher Pass, Willow, Alaska

Donovan and Wendy were engaged a few weeks ago in Arizona, and are planning a June wedding.  I have known Donovan for 6 years, and I am so happy to see him with a wonderful woman like Wendy.  We had a great time up Hatcher Pass in Willow and got some great photos and alot of snow in our boots. 🙂  Looking forward to your wedding and seeing the personal touches you have in your big day.

Philip and Faith [Engagement]

Philip and Faith are dear friends that we met in ND who got married just two short weeks after we left…. I was sad to miss their wedding, but their engagement photos were a blast!  I am sure that you will be able to see the love and joy that was in their faces, in spite of the blasting wind!

Hernandez Family

After relocating to Alaska last month, I had been so busy with taking photos and moving that actually posting sessions on the blog and facebook became time consuming, so I am now catching up!

Jess and her family were precious to take photos of… and I wish them the best with their semi-new addition!

Corbin [Senior ’12]

This past week it has been really cloudy and dreary, and the afternoon of Corbin’s senior photos, I almost called and asked if they wanted to postpone, but I am so glad that I didn’t!  The clouds vanished and the light was so beautiful!  Perfect evening for photos.

Corbin is involved in track at his school and specializes in discus, which I have always liked watching.  Best wishes on your last year of high school Corbin!  Enjoy it, and have fun in your automotive technologies class!  Maybe one day you’ll be fixing my car!  🙂

Jake and Dawn

Jake and Dawn are a dear couple, and they don’t have many photos together, other than darling ones from their wedding and engagement, so right before Jake was heading off to Police Academy we got together and did a mini session.  I really love how these turned out with the warm sunlight.

 Hope you enjoy them guys!

 Thanks for training to become a police officer here in ND Jake!  Oh, doesn’t Dawn have gorgeous eyes?!?!
