"I Believe in Love at first sight, because I have loved my mom since I opened My Eye."
"A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way."
Now that fall has come and gone and winter is starting to fade away I was finally able to collect a few of my favorites from Fall 2015 mini sessions. <3 Looking over these again makes me look forward to fall 2016. Truly the most beautiful time of year.

Welcoming 2016 with open arms and a new logo! I have known what I wanted in my mind for a while but have failed to be able to translate it until now.
I really wanted something with my own pen strokes in it and something that represented Kodiak.
I'm in love.
I do believe Tom Petty said it best...
"You belong among the wildflowers, You belong in a boat out at sea, You belong with your love on your arm,You belong somewhere you feel free"

This shoot was wondrous and these girl were contagious.
Though soft spoken, something about their presence
makes you want to be part of their story.
Until next time lovely ladies...<3

This shoot really was an adventure, a long drive late in the evening with two cars full of kids. Our original destination was overtaken with buffalo so we took the next best thing.
After a short walk we passed a carcass of a large deceased animal. Then up a decently mild hill to a bluff littered with amazing Kodiak wildflowers overlooking the ocean.
It is most enjoyable
when people want their photos taken in locations that inspire them....as much as
they inspire me.
This client prefers black and white and sepia tones for her photos....
so despite my urges here are the more dramatic
colorless versions from the evening.
...because she is also my sister ;) , I get to take some artistic liberties...
...that I would not normally have the freedom to take.
Lately I love photographing the different bonds people have with one and other...
...the bond between mother and daughter is one of the most powerful to capture.
Thank you for letting me photograph part of your magical world.
Until next time ladies...<3
Today was more fun in the sun, this time with my amazing friend / co-photographer! We got to run around the KMXT's Kodiak Bear Crawl 2015, chasing after two very talented photographers as they braved the obstacle course!
They were a blast to watch, not only were they silly and energetic but they were also so caring and encouraging towards each other . They helped each other through out the tough parts and stayed together until the end.
Beautiful ladies inside and out...
...I took one photo I just HAD to share...
