North to Alaska | Family Circle Photographer (FBKS, NP)

Couldn't resist sharing that with you guys! Does anyone else around here know that song by heart?! :D

Naturally, I've been meaning to share these images for a while now. But first we had to tackle the issue of publishing dates. Yes, our shoot took place in September. Yes, the publish date wasn't until December. So of course ... we were in waiting mode. Then, I finally got to share the big news when the issue hit the stands! Imagine my excitement standing in line at the pharmacy (you know, as excited as you can be standing in line filling a Rx for your kid) & rushing over to the magazines at the check-out counter to see the lovely Taylor family & all our hard work published on the pages of Family Circle's December '09 issue. I still remember our chats about the memorial gardens, city hall, the peace pole that their family had a huge hand in ... their love of North Pole & lifetime commitment to living there, their interests in hunting, fishing, camping ... and yes, we even talked about their plans to camp this winter at -50F below. (And with this cold snap, those dreams may have become a reality! Did you guys do it?!?)

So here we are ... some of the out-takes from our December 09 Family Circle shoot. I'm so lucky to work with the families I meet ... and they are certainly no exception! Thank you guys, once again, for a lovely day. And many congrats for being crowned King & Queen Regents for the City of North Pole this year! It's going to be an amazing year for your family!

Published! A Family Circle December Treat | Fairbanks Family Photog

Can I share a bit of exciting news with you? Yes ... one of those 'behind-the-scenes' things that I have been on pins & needles *waiting* to share. Waiting for what you ask? Well ... it was a time sensitive matter, that included a bit of secrecy & some paperwork and a fabulously featured North Pole family, the Taylor family. For those who haven't heard the fun news yet, the Taylor's were featured in the December 2009 Issue of Family Circle - out on stands now! On page 46 you will find their "My Hometown" feature, of which I was hired by the photo editor to shoot. Crazy but true, I ran to the pharmacy Thanksgiving Eve to pick up a prescription for a very sick little girl and was able to see the issue for myself. If you're out & about while shopping this season, be sure to check it out! (A few iPhone polaroids to share ;) )

I'll be back in the next few days to share some of our session together ... 'out-take' images that didn't make the final cut. I hope you'll stop back by! And I hope everyone had a fabulously wonderful Thanksgiving! What a treat to shoot for a national magazine and what an honor to photograph the chosen family!

Shop Know Boutique | Alaska Commercial Photographer

One of the things I've been eager to share with you all! Finally I can :) just got word from the store owner that her new (online) store is less than a week away from launch! How exciting! So I wanted to take a moment to share just a few of the pieces I photographed for Shop Know Boutique over there in Cali, serving customers worldwide. You can check out Jen's site here: http://www.shopknowboutique.com/ be prepared to find great California casual wear at fantastic prices! I think when we originally talked (way back when), Jen described the clothing to me as Santa Barbara chic. However you describe it, definitely some great finds. Jen also does trunk shows! So contact her directly knowboutique(@)yahoo.com to set something up! And Jenny is so sweet, have to note here where I asked her if there was anything special/extra she'd like me to add and she said, "maybe add a part about how I LOVE your photography!" Thanks, Jenny :)

As the site says: Know Boutique is a unique store where customers can find affordable cute apparel!
(Can't beat that!)
