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!

The S Family | Creamer's Field | Fairbanks, AK | Rose Wheat Photography

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family. It was such a great time capturing them in some fantastic Alaskan surroundings, exploring the area around Creamer's Field. Something I love about family sessions is giving kids and their parents an opportunity to play, and that rang especially true for these four. Their oldest daughter has a keen sense of observation, which meant she was quick to be adventurous and explore. It wasn't surprising that we ended the session with a sword fight (using sticks of course!). Take a peek and their simple, joyous moments… along with some playful ones!

Thank you for allowing me to photograph you during this time, celebrating the arrival of your second precious little lady! I wish you all the best during this new season in your life!

April & Tom | Birch Hill | Fairbanks, AK | Rose Wheat Photography

Between her engagement ring, matched to the dresses of her best lady gems, to the images of Tom and April's life together, embellished appropriately with perfectly matched frames, it seemed apparent that these two value the details. These pieces of life they chose to share with everyone, and the elements of their day that were given special attention only reinforced my inkling. One can only imagine that with these two, the details will not be forgotten, but picked up and nurtured along the way, weaving their story one strand at a time, creating a foundation for their marriage.

Surrounded by several family and friends, Birch Hill proved to be a beautiful location for their wedding with endless birch trees behind them and cloud dappled open skies above. After getting rained indoors, her polka band filled the reception space and made for an incredibly jubilant time. Supported by the arms of her husband, April polished the dance floor, preparing it for her exuberant guests that had no fears in terms of floor-sweeping themselves.

It was a thrill to photograph these two, and I look forward to seeing where life takes them as husband and wife! Thank you April and Tom for letting me share in your day!
