The Boys // Anchorage Family Photography

Lifestyle family photography is my jam. I was so excited after meeting with these boys, to create some family photographs with them! I especially loved how honest they were with me. Our conversation went something like this:

dad: “We love your work. It’s beautiful. But… we’re just not the sort of people who are traipsing around in a field somewhere with scenic vistas of Alaska in the background…”

me: (laughing) “yeah. I get that. So let’s talk about what kind of family you ARE.”

We planned out a super fun session that was perfect for them. They wanted to try a few things they had never done before together¬† (go karting and mini golf at Roadrunner!) and end with something they do every week together (hang out time at our local Anchorage Barnes and Noble.) After all that I did make them stand in an alley so that I could capture a couple of scenic urban Anchorage vistas… or whatever. But they still brought their own personality to those – ‘let’s do action shots!’ and I LOVED it!

What made their session so special to me was that they WERE so honest! Every family wants to be seen in their best light – i get it! I do the same! But there is something so refreshing about just being yourself – and allowing your family photography to reflect that.

I got to do my job in the way I love to do it most. Allow a family to follow their joy – while I just hang out and capture it.

And also – the photographs are great!
