Month: April 2013

Before Deployment

I finished up editing and uploading the photos for this beautiful family. Dad is heading off for a deployment. They wanted to get some family photos before he left. They also wanted to try to get some snow in the photo and maybe some mountains.

Since we are surrounded by mountains in this area, that part wasn’t going to be too difficult. Low and behold, the snow part wasn’t difficult either. We had a SPRING snow! We had to change locations as all the available spots I normally use at Hatcher’s Pass were covered in many feet of snow. We changed it to Beach Lake in Chugiak and it was absolutely gorgeous that day. Still a bit chilly, but beautiful nonetheless.

We had some great laughs, walked around to different areas to shoot but coming back onto the lake for the fantastic mountain views.

Thank you, Nall family for allowing me to capture this special time in your life. My prayers go out to you all as you are separated. May God bless and protect you!

Nall Family {April 2013}

I was familiar with the Nall family through a mutual friend before Donna contacted me about photographing their family before her husband, Chris, was deployed.

After the large amount of “spring snow” we received, I didn’t feel that Hatcher’s Pass would be a good place to photograph them on April 12. I changed it to Beach Lake and the weather couldn’t have been more goregous.

It was great meeting their son, Jake, seeing Rebecca again (who didn’t remember me from a couple years ago). They were a wonderful family to work with and agreed to lay down in the snow for a shot or two.

Thank you, Nall family, for the opportunity to capture this moment in time.
