Back in March, after we completed Mrs. Alaska’s outdoor Queen session, she let me know that she would be contacting me later in the year. April was dead set on taking fall photos with her family, which including two active fur babies! She said that she got even more excited about her fall family session after getting so many compliments on her previous session’s photos at Mrs. America Nationals. Clearly, that’s the best news ever for me! As expected, she contacted me as fall crept up on us. I’m SO glad that she did, and of course I did everything I could to make that happen for her. In fact, to make SURE that it happened well, we actually did TWO sessions. Now that was a first for me! Let me explain… The first time we met, was at a cute estuary center near the Savvy Images Studio. It was on the very tail end of the long rain, and the forecast still looked a bit questionable. Fall comes and goes with a quickness each year in Alaska, so we wanted to be sure we didn’t miss our small window of opportunity. Gorgeous Autumn colors were randomly scattered across Anchorage, but were not completely at their prime yet. We had a few things going against us already, and then we arrived to quickly discovered a HUGE moose. And he just happened to be hanging out RIGHT in the area that I had anticipated taking photos of them. We proceeded and improvised last minute, keeping an eye out for that big fella. BUT then shortly after that, it started sprinkling on us! It didn’t pour, but after everything else, it didn’t take long to call the shoot. It just wasn’t meant to happen for us that day! I always strive to deliver high quality images to exceed my clients expectations. The first session’s photos were great of HER, but by the time we got to the family photos, the wheels almost fell off our bus! We’re both really glad that we were able to get together again after that, because our second session was quick, magical and perfectly fall. I am really excited to have her display THESE snazzy family photos in their home for years to come! Their gallery wrapped canvas will be gorgeous!! Aren’t they such a beautiful little family?!
