Ashley & Alex

Were do I begin… Ash came to Nome over a year ago and ever since her first haircut in my kitchen we basically have been attached at the hip. When she’s gone I feel like I’m missing a limb. Anywho, Alex was the reason she migrated up North after he snatched her up in a school bus. Yes… a school bus. This is a typical Morgan chariot and Ashley was hooked ever since lol. These two crazies are perfectly inperfect for eachother and they each want one thing… happiness. They find that their happy… is together 🙂 We decided to get a little crazy and have fun with this shoot, so we brought some props. They really let their true selves shine! Happy Holidays and I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.1 2 3 4 5 6 7Al

Mike & Lauren Robertson

Micheal “Mike” was just about the most enthusiastic, inquiring client. He shot me an email over a month ago to reserve a date and time for this surprise photo shoot with his wife, Lauren for their first wedding anniversary. He elaborated on hes previous surprise attempts that failed miserably (not putting pressure on me or anything :P). Anyway, anyone who has lived in Nome long enough knows our unpredictable weather… so sticking to a specific date and time for an outside photo session was iffy. The morning of the shoot came and I was doubtful due to snow flurries and a pretty good breeze. Needless to say, it calmed down enough and we were able to sneak in a cold, yet fun shoot during the few hours of daylight that we had! Thanks for contacting me to do your photos, we executed the surprise session. Congrats Lauren on your newly acquired PHD and may you two celebrate many more anniversaries!!!  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

James and Erica

After several rescheduled sessions, due to weather, slow melt, availability and the fact that we live in different places, I was finally able to set a date and time for this very special photo shoot. My dear friend Erica snagged the luckiest guy in the world, James. These newly engaged friends of mine were also very blessed with the pregnancy of their little guy cooking in the oven. This pregnancy is nothing short of a miracle. Little baby Bolen will be the most spoiled baby in the world, I’m sure. Congratulations to both of you, I am truly honored to have done your photos. Love you guys :).  2 3 4 5 6 7 8 11 10 9 13 12 14

Aunt Barb & Uncle Mike.

These two.. My aunt Barb and uncle Mike are very familiar with Nome and the surrounding area. See this place used to be my aunt Barb’s old stomping grounds with my mother. She’s here working for the summer and uncle Mike came up from work in Arizona to visit and fish! These two mean so much to me and I love them dearly.

Made in pairs, Mike and Marsha.

Mike and Marsha, now that just flows 🙂 This has been a very long awaited photo shoot. We went through so many different ideas, but the beach and the dock just fit perfectly seeing as how this is practically their backyard. I have had the pleasure of working with both of these individuals and it has been a good one. God blessed us with this weather it seems just for this photo shoot. Enjoy your little preview Mike and Marsha, I had a blast!

Jake and Sarah Swann.

August 1st will mark the one year anniversary of the “I-do’s” for Jake and Sarah. I can’t believe it’s already been a year since they tied the knot. They came for a visit and despite the weather, we got some great shots 🙂

Simply stunning. Nikki and Darren.

So I teamed up with Jenny to fly our best-est of all friends Nikki and her fiance here to Nome. The second she told me that she was getting married I demanded to do her engagement photos. It was touch and go for a while on if I was actually going to get the chance, but we made it happen. It’s always a treat to see Nikki and catch up on “girl talk” 🙂 but now she has a partner in crime, Darren. It was somewhat shocking when she said the word “marriage” and I  wasn’t so sure. After meeting Darren I can say “I do”… I do approve that is 🙂 Here are a few previews of someone I consider a sister… and my new brother in-law to be!

And the leaves fell. The Walters.

Fall is almost over and winter is right around the corner. It is creeping in from the North. I realized that I had never photographed John and Trisha before. It was a quick call and they were ready in an instant. This photo shoot couldn’t wait for next week. That’s how fast the leaves are falling. Everything is shutting down in preparation for the wrath of winter. But not this family. For them, winter (or should I say spring) brings sledding and lots of time in the snow! I’m sure Haylen is excited for snowmachining and Kamylee ready to sled! But for now, the leaves are falling.
