Arne & Jessica met me at the Campbell Airstrip Trailhead for some engagement portrait photos. Arne’s from Norway, and Jessica isn’t, but they are a perfect match in Alaska, having met while working for the same oil company. This never would’ve happened 150 Years ago, but thankfully for Jessica & Arne, we live in the future.
About the session: It went incredibly easy (at least from my side of the camera), as it seemed every time I pressed the shutter, Jessica was ready for a new pose. Normally, I am trying to be a photographer, poser creator, coach, and a cross-checker (making sure nothing at all is out of place…). Halfway through the session I had to ask: “Have you ever modeled?” Jessica had a puzzled look on her face, and said “uhh…well, actually yes, but noone ever asks that…how’d you know?”
Well, I’ve got my ways… =)

We had a fun family portrait session with David & Holly’s Family. I have known David from my work as a teacher for about 3 years now, and have now become friends with his family over that time. When we took photos, the wind was blowing pretty good that day, but they were such sports about the wind and cold. They did their best to smile, pretend it was warm, and still have a fun portrait session. We had lots of fun taking photos on the east side of anchorage, Alaska.
