It was a day many of us Alaskans will never forget - it started with a sunny blue summer sky & warm temperatures that promised a wonderful Sunday full of fun. But the sky soon turned hazy gray in Willow, and by the time sunset came around it was an omnious blood-red threat that had already devoured homes and the lives of beloved pets. Most of us were lucky to not lose anything in days that followed, but many - like Deedee & Mike Jonrowe - lost so much. Being the person that D
Meet Malie Delgado - she is a radio personality at 101.3 KGOT, former Miss Alaska (Miss America Pageant system) and a fabulous model! And eventhough we photographed her entire Modern Woman / model portfolio style session & Halloween portraits session before she finally got into the milk bath (yes, we tapped it BEFORE she arrived at our Midtown Anchorage studio), she braved through the Cold - and the resulting milk bath portrait is pure amazingness!

We photographed both her brother and her for their Model / Actor/Actress portfolios (both in studio and outdoors) - and here are some of the gorgeous portraits from our outdoor portrait session in Wasilla AK.
(And yes, this is her horse - and yes, I was terrified the whole time. I love horses, but
When an idea has been kicked around for years, waiting for the perfect moment and place, then the lightning storm of a decade will not keep it from finally having it's glory day.
