After my arrival, it all happened very quickly, and before I knew it, there was Gavin. 

I have never witnessed a birth before, it was something so magical, something hard to describe. 

Congratulations friends!

Brittany & Jake Expecting https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2014/2/brittany-jake Lately, many of my close friends are pregnant - and I love it! Not only I get to be their photographer and capture this special stage but I will have an abundance of baby models too!!   

For Brittany and Jake's pregnancy shoot we walked around the trails of the Hilltop ski area and found (OK - Jake found it!) a wonderful spot on the small hiking and biking trail. The light was magical that day - very romantic. 

I can't wait for their little guy to arrive!! :)

Brooklyn | 10 days https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2014/2/brooklyn-10-days This little miracle made me work for it earlier this week. She was alert and hungry  -  the hungriest baby I met so far. After few hours of calming her down, and when she had enough milk, she gave in and fall asleep. 

Later that day, my neighbor informed that during their 10th day, many newborns go through a big growth spur and want to eat all day!! I had no idea - anyone else with the same experience?

Kimberly & Curtis https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/12/kimberly-curtis Kimberly and Curtis shortly after their marriage got stationed to North Carolina. Before they left, they wanted to have their wedding portraits to be in Alaska, this gorgeous place where they joined their lives. 

The freezing temperatures did not deter them (nor me) and their photos show the frosty beauty of Alaska. They will love sharing these photos with their new friends in warm North Carolina.

Sweet family of 3 https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/11/sweet-family-of-3 What a cute family of three (four including their lab Mia) - we had a great time. It was a beautiful day to get out and about in the trails, few days before the first snow arrived.

Angelic & Petros https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/10/angelic-petros I can't say enough of how much I love photographing in the fall. These two lovebirds were my first session during the Fall Minis at the Westchester Lagoon. The sun was rising and the light was gorgeous.

Addisyn | 14 days https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/9/addisynnewborn I got to meet sweet little Addisyn when I was looking for a newborn model to create a promotional video for my business. I couldn't have asked for a better model. She was peacefully asleep for most of the session and did not mind me at all. 

Even though you many think that all newborns do and like the same, I can assure you that they have their own personality that shines through at some point during their session. For little Addisyn it was her tiny pinky! I am very glad that during the session, her mother let me know that she loves to stick it out. And of course Addisyn's tiny pinky is part of her newborn portraits.

Chloe's Birthday | 2 yrs https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/9/birthdayparty When you are two years old fun is: a chocolate covered face, lollipop in hand, and carrying around anything that could pass like a purse. With a little imagination the birthday hat upside down sure looks like one.

The best game of the evening evolved a lot of water which was perfect for the unusually hot summer in Alaska.

Erik https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/9/airplanelove Erik loved showing me all of his toys, and especially the airplanes. I could not resist grabbing a shot of him surrounded by them. He was really cooperative throughout the whole session but with the condition that I would pose for him too. At the end of the session he pulled out his camera and took my portraits. 

Future pilot, or photographer? Either way I loved capturing this stage of his childhood.

Baby C | 1 month https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/6/newbornbabyboy Baby C was so cooperative and sweet. He is the youngest of four boys and he is very very much loved. The big brothers were really interested to see what was happening and there were many times that they would just stop what they were doing, and come give him a hug or a kiss. No surprise they were so willing to help me with the setup.  Check their cute pictures at the end of this blog post. 

As for photography, for this session I used only natural light through some great, big windows. I love the way that the light wraps around and creates very soft images that are ideal for newborns.  From now on, I will try to use natural light for all my newborn sessions. (I cannot promise anything through the long Alaska winters thought).

Baby Leo | 6 weeks new https://www.aliki-photography.com/blog/2013/4/sixweeksoldbaby Early on his session, Leo was holding up many surprises. His mother was not sure how he will stay on his belly without being asleep, but this strong little boy was lifting himself up all the way. That was Leo's first snake pose caught on camera!!  He was looking straight in the camera and giving me some great baby face expressions.
