Since I was up in Alaska working on a wedding with Erin, owner of Blomma Designs, we thought we might as well throw a family session in there too! Nevermind that Erin had a wedding the day before, and the day before THAT, and had flown to Minnesota and back that week as well…you know, just the average work week for a busy wedding planner!
When I arrived that evening for portraits, we threw anything that coordinated into her vehicle and headed for one of the Verlander family’s favorite spots along Turnagain Arm just south of Anchorage. The sun was still pretty high, so we found a cliff where we could backlight and get plenty of sun flare. Erin put this look together in minutes, it was amazing! It was like we planned a styled shoot for weeks. And her darling daughter K just loved having some play time while we took portraits!
Naturally, K had to explore the lantern we handed her!
Sweet sun drenched time with Dad!
One of the MANY things I love about Alaska is the abundance of natural beauty. Want a waterfall? Sure, lets take a little walk over here! A cliff? Just turn around! A moose? Well, I wasn’t THAT lucky, but we did have a beautiful stream and woodland clearing to take some family portraits.
Erin and Matt, it was such a joy getting to see you again and meeting K! She is amazing and so are you both! Enjoy your sneak peek!!!
