When Alaska is at its greenest, color casts make for tricky skin tones. I love the colors and tones here, plus, my nephew is adorable.
The reflections and wintery morning pastels made this a favorite landscape shot.
This was another favorite shoot of the year -- in part because the client was on board for scheduling and rescheduling our shoot so we could get the best light!
My littlest is either non-stop action or fast asleep, nothing in between. I love this capture of the former.
I did fine art school portraits this year and this was one of my favorites.
I loved this entire shoot -- these three are a hoot and also always on the move. This was towards the end and I asked the oldest brother if he was too old or too young to give piggy back rides. He immediately got his littlest brother on his back. Mom said: They look like they like each other! :)
While searching for a Christmas tree, I made my husband pull over so I could shoot these trees.
Photographing the northern lights requires patience and timing. I loved that the big dipper also made the frame in this one.
Before moving to Alaska, I had no idea how photogenic glaciers could be!
My other son on the move. This time at the beach. After spending long winter months bundled up, he exudes the easy unencumbered freedom of running barefoot in the sand toward the ocean.
Sunset at the beach? Instant fave in my book.
My littlest's birthday is in January. He got first bike. Daddy took him indoors to learn to ride it .
Back light can be tricky for skin tones, but I like how it turned out here.
The aurora borealis tells stories in the night sky.
