During my recent trip to Alaska, I had the pleasure of photographing the Alaska Maternity Portrait Photographic Experience of Jessie and Brendan in Hope, Alaska. Both are dear friends to my brother and his family in Anchorage and over the last five years, I’ve enjoyed getting to know these two wonderful people.

Jessie and Brendan have been married since 2010 and their passion for a full life in Alaska lead them to purchase land outside of Hope, Alaska where they have been building their own home together since 2011.

Now as that passion project comes to a conclusion, a new journey is about to begin for them. In two weeks, these two are expecting the arrival of their first child.

To commemorate this special time, these two reached out to me about making some maternity photographs for them. For our Alaska Maternity Portrait Photographic Experience, we decided to check out their favorite walking trail near their home that looks out over the Turnagain Arm and the Chugach State Park landscape.

Here are some of their favorites from our photo experience. I can not wait to meet the new addition to their family! Congrats you two! -M

 

Back in late May, I had the pleasure of photographing Bozeman Montana Maternity Family Portraits of Lacey and Rory.

These two were so excited about their new family. We decided to hike around the “M” Trail at the edge of the Bridger Mountains just outside of downtown Bozeman.

Man, I love the summer time!

The evening light made for not only a lovely walk but also prime light for making some lovely photographs amongst the endless hillsides covered in yellow Arrowleaf Balsamroot.

We had a great time.

Here are some of my favorite images from the day. So excited for your new family you guys. Congrats! -M
