Krupa Maternity Session

I had the pleasure of shooting the Krupa Family Maternity session recently. Since this session, Candice has welcomed her second baby girl to the world; no doubt a sweet baby girl, who I will have the pleasure of photographing this weekend. Krupa Maternity Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, Alaska

When approaching a session, I like to mentally prepare myself for the shots I’d like to take, and where. Knowing that we’d have a toddler included in this session, and that the temperatures weren’t particularly warm (that’s our reality in Alaska!) I was particularly glad to have the downtown studio location to fall back on. For that reason I picked the Chena River to shoot at. The sweet big sister in the session wasn’t feeling so good, so I turned this into a hybrid session, shooting the second half in-studio. It worked out quite well. After our littlest participant warmed up inside, she was absolutely ready to show some love to Mama Candice for the camera.

They are the fleeting moments before a family literally brings new life home, forever changing the family dynamic. An invite into a client’s home for a newborn session is the ultimate honor, so I’m truly proud to be chosen as a part of this special time for the Krupa family.

What a show last week! The lights came out in true glory. These were photographed on Fort Wainwright, at the golf course. There were a number of people out enjoying the show, away from the street lights of the neighborhoods. Locals, be sure to check the aurora forecasts and have your thermoses of hot cocoa ready to go! This season should be great!

Fillmore Family Session

Their sweet girl Elyza was my first newborn subject. Megan is a dear friend of mine, so watching Elyza grow from a tiny newborn, to a sassy toddler has been very rewarding. I mean, check her out! Fillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AKFillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AKIt’s unfair that I get to see the Fillmore kids more than their grandparents, but it’s obvious they all share something special.

Hearing Aunt Amanda call Juden “Ju-ju” brought home the fact that all the military families in our community have throngs of friends and family in the lower 48, all rallying behind them from afar. It was truly great to meet the ones who love my friend Megan and her sweet family. Fillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AKFillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AKFillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AKFillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AKFillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AK Fillmore Family Session - Yea Yea Photography | Fairbanks, AK

PS – Did you check out Juden’s awesome karate moves? He had a few more in his session, which leads me to believe that there are a lot of bad guys out there who better not get in his way!
