This mom and I crossed paths many times since we each moved to Alaska, and I always got excited when she expressed an interested in having new family photos taken. She had a go-to photographer back in New Orleans, but since moving, it had been several years since they’d had family photos taken. Because of the recent news that we were going to move back to Texas, her busy life with the three cute little ones below, and the crap conditions Mother Nature has presented Anchorage with this winter, I was afraid that it would never happen. But I’m VERY happy to be sharing their colorful family photos with you guys today, because clearly it did! We all know that life gets busy, and it’s SO easy to put things like getting new family photos taken put on the back burner. Completely understandable! But you also have to keep in mind that those cute little scrunchy noses grow up quickly, and the memories that pass can no longer be preserved. Though the conditions were not what either of us had in mind for their great “Alaskan” photo session, I think it turned out beyond perfect for them! We didn’t wait on the perfect moment, we MADE the moment perfect. Heck, I even found twenty dollars frozen in the thawing ice while checking out this spot for their session. This is actually a pretty popular spot to have photos taken here in Anchorage, and I’m so glad that I saved it for one of my final photo sessions. Seriously, I don’t think I could imagine a more perfect backdrop for all their fun colorful winter coats! During their session their mom also mentioned that because of the teal bridge, these photos will actually coordinate very well with the last family photos that they had taken in New Orleans! I just LOVE when a session works out perfectly for my clients. Their family session album will be the perfect way to show off those silly little laughs for years to come!
