Love the way these turned out! She's a cutie!
Had the great opportunity to shoot some maternity photos of my lovely wife Lindee with my little baby who will come to live with us sometime next month! We're so excited, and really happy to be able to capture these fleeting moments. I don't do a lot of maternity photography, but I loved the lighting coming through the window and how these turned out.
Alaska Event Photography, june 7/8, Cuddy Park, Anchorage Alaska
This past weekend, I had the honor to get to be a part of the Love Alaska festival with Luis Palau. I was asked by media guru and friend Adam Legg to help out with media for the event, building a buzz in the community through instagram and Facebook.
first, a side note. If you need any social media help, Adam is your guy! go to www.adamlegg.com
Anchorage doesn't often have big events like this, so I was looking for a way to get involved. It was approaching quickly and I still hadn't found my niche when Adam asked me to help out. I was really stoked to do photography at this huge alaskan event. Admitedly, event photography at live music and shows isn't my normal thing but hey, I love shooting people and showing expressive moments, so this was right up my alley after all. I had tons of fun and will hopefully get a chance to do something like this next time, or maybe be in the band next time! Either way, this event was awesome for our city, and it was so much fun getting to be a part of it! Also, if you're not sure what it was all about, leave a comment at the bottom with your question. The short answer, is that many people left that place changed, with hope and excitement, all while having a blast and enjoying free concerts.
You can see all of my pictures from saturday and sunday on the Luis Palau Love Alaska Facebook page.
Go tag yourself and your friends!
Now on to some of my favorites!
Sunday was a blast too. I got there while it was still the calm before the storm. Before it even officially started at 3pm, the park was getting packed. A lot of people came back with tents and camp chairs to hang out all evening and listen to the main stage events. Of course, again, there was lots to do for the kids, and even more awesome live music and speaking, culminating with an extended concert by toby mac. Special thanks to all the hard working volunteers who kept the sound running and helped the artists perform well.
I covered the children's events first, and then headed over to the bmx and motocross demos.
If you're wondering what's next, find a church to get involved in. There is so much to do and more exciting things happening around our state daily! Get involved!
Cory and Cathy's Engagement session at Beluga Point and Girdwood.
I recently met Cory and Cathy at Beluga Point for their engagement session, wanting to take advantage of some of our great weather we had been having. We then planned to head down to Girdwood to get some photos with a different feel and mood. I had in mind to create a vintage feel with some of their pictures and the lighting was great! We started out at the windy point and then found some purple flowers to shoot around.
I love hearing people's stories, and i'm excited for Cory and Cathy as they plan their life together!
After Beluga point we headed down to Girdwood to the ice cream shop before going to the ski area. I always make it my goal to show couples as they react with one another and to represent their relationship and love through my images. These two made it so easy to capture their love and to show the fun they have together.
Next we headed down toward the Winner Creek hiking trail for some engagement photos in the woods for a more moody feel but I got a little side-tracked for a moment at the chairlift that was shut down for the summer.
