Activities for Natural Family Photos - Palmer, Anchorage, Alaska Family Photographer

Any time a family contacts me they ask for ideas of activities that would be good to do for natural family photos. As a documentary Anchorage family photographer I tell them that family photos should be a real representation of how your family likes to spend time together. My sessions are relaxed, and natural because I work hard to make good photos of you spending time with your family. Summer is upon us in Alaska and it is short! So here are some ideas of activities that would be great for you to do as a family for your photo session. 

  • Play at the Lake or on boat

  • Roasting hot dogs and marshmallows

  • Play in the sprinkler at home

  • Go to the icecream shop and get icecream

  • Fishing together

  • Bake something as a family

  • Play in your yard and your home together

  • Go to your favorite little town on "vacation"

  • Go to the reindeer farm

  • Visit a glacier or take a glacier helicopter tour

  • Visit a local farm and pick out produce or flowers

  • Go berry picking

  • Go on a short hike and have a picnic

  • If extended family or friends are in town this is the best time for a family session and take them around to all the local tourist spots and spend time together at home.

You don't have to limit yourself to this list! Whatever you want to do as a family I can tag along. My documentary sessions last anywhere from 4 hours to a whole day. When clients hear that I spend the day with them sometimes they are surprised.  But the fact is that I am not taking any of your time, you get to spend your time doing whatever you want and I am just along for the ride. If you have any questions or want to schedule your family session contact me at info@christalhoughtelling.com.

Slice Of Life And Apple Pie - Anchorage, Palmer, Alaska Family Photographer

WHERE DID THE TIME GO?!

My youngest just graduated from preschool and is on his way to kindergarten next year! I'm obviously excited about this, but I'm also a little sad. He's the one that keeps me company in the morning. So this morning I decided I want to capture some of our time together. Usually I'm busy cleaning while he is doing his thing. But, this morning I decided to help him make an apple pie. He LOVES to make pie. If he could, he would make one every day. So check out the photos below to see him making his pie. 

DON'T WAIT TO GET PHOTOS LIKE THESE!

In my business I offer beautiful portraits, and storytelling adventure sessions because I realize as a mother both of them are important.  In the long run it's the little moments that matter, they can take you back in time. So don't put off having photos done of your family. before you know if they will be grown up!
