The Bartletts | A Life Story | Fairbanks, AK | Rose Wheat Photography

Right now these two are cuddling their sweet little boy and absolutely loving being parents to sweet little Hudson (That's just a shot in the dark. I'm no psychic.). On the day of their maternity session though, all they wanted to do was cuddle one-another! It was beyond freezing in a quintessential Alaskan way. These two were awesome though! Between warm-ups, they fiercely posed, exuding love for one another. It was clear they were excited to be parents! I love that they arrived looking adorable, taking full advantage of their 20-minute complimentary maternity session (received when booking a newborn session).

Take a look at their sweetly chilly Alaskan maternity session!

Bailey | Newborn | Life Story | Fairbanks, AK | Rose Wheat Photography

Miss Bailey was my second newborn to photograph since I got into the studio. It made me even more thankful that she came into the world! Her arrival was long awaited since her momma assisted me at weddings this summer, and I (in all of my eagerness) photographed Lauren once after a wedding and a second time in the studio. As the non-momma in this situation, I was relatively excited to meet this little lady!

She is gorgeous like her momma, carrying a calm and gentle demeanor. Even as a newborn, her personhood seems quite evident. Enjoy this handful of images from Bailey's newborn session, five days new to the world!

Lauren | A Life Story | Maternity | Wedgewood Resort | Fairbanks, AK | Rose Wheat Photography

Beautiful on the outside, but more so on the inside, I'm so happy to bring you these snippets of a post-wedding cooldown I shared with the faithful (and clearly pregnant) assistant Lauren. This might have been a small wedding season, but I have been so thankful for her support on the few weddings I've been privileged enough to photograph.

After wrapping up our last wedding of the summer, the light was perfectly golden and beckoned me to photograph her prego self. Everything about the sun and surroundings was perfect for some calm and happy portraits.

Thank you again Lauren for being such a great help on wedding days and best luck growing miss Bailey! We're all so excited to meet her!
