This family was so, SO lovely! They just recently moved to Alaska, so I was super excited when they contacted me to book a session. From the minute I started chatting with Sheena I knew we would be a great match for working together! The day we went out to shoot it was pretty windy, and her littles got pretty cold! Luckily, the studio was right around the corner. We headed there, played a bit, and got to shoot a little bit in some great light! The kids were MUCH happier being warm and we caught some ever so sweet smiles! The camera LOVED her kiddos killer eyes and curls. Such a beautiful family, and such a pleasure working with them!    Thank you, Chattam family, for your flexibility! I had a great time with you, and look forward to working with you in the future! -Kayla-

I LOVE when families contact me for winter sessions! Even in the winter cold, nothing beats natural light and the beautiful outdoors! And let me tell you, this day was COLD! I was pretty worried when I got up that morning, because my weather app was reading -13. Up until this day the coldest I had shot in was -10, and that was a VERY short session and my fingers almost froze off! I knew that this family had wanted to shoot with jackets off and I was just praying that the temp would go up, even just a few degrees! By the time we got downtown to shoot we were at a balmy 1 degree! Their little miss was a ROCK. STAR. She didn't complain or whine about the cold even when she was shivering and her little teeth were chattering! Don't worry, we took a car break or two to warm up and had jackets in between shots! This family handled the cold so well, and I got to shoot in downtown Fairbanks for the first time, which I am kind of falling in love with! It is such a great area to shoot, and has so much potential for light, especially as our days get longer again! I can't wait to get down there some more, both inside the studio and out to shoot some more in more different areas!          Thanks for sharing a beautiful, wintry Alaska afternoon with me, Jackson family! You guys were fantastic! -Kayla-

I always adore maternity sessions--especially when it is a couple's first child! There are such sweet interactions and so much love and emotion! Add the snow and a sweet puppy, what else could you ask for? This couple was so great, and waded through some SUPER deep snow for our photos! It was definitely worth it, and they were beyond photogenic. So happy to work with them, and capture such a special time for them! Can't wait to meet their baby boy when he arrives!        Thank you for such an amazing afternoon, and session! You guys are simply beautiful! -Kayla-
