Fantastic beginning to the new year with portraits of Diane and Lee Pederson today. Both are Pioneer's of Alaska - an accomplishment that requires 30+ years of residency in Alaska.
They are royalty this year - King and Queen. They'll represent the Pioneers of Alaska throughout the next year - beginning with the Fur Rendezvous parade and coronation in February.
With their encouragement during today's session, I'm ready to join!
