Sunday, in particular, was outstanding.
Layla and I asked Carolyn Franks (studio assistant/photographer) to join us on our first shoot of the day - beginning at 9:30 a.m. We traveled to Glen Alps and then Turnagain Arm with Cindi and her two Belgian Tervurens. Included in the mini slide show below is a portrait featuring Carly (15) and Beamer (11.)
Next, Layla and I paired up for a sunset and aurora photography adventure above Glen Alps. This required hauling 30+ lbs of gear up the hill on a trail to Flat Top Mountain in South Anchorage. Gear included strobe lighting, LED flashlights and a large assortment of camera equipment. We were on the side of the mountain for almost five hours. It was worth it as the Northern Lights danced wildly for a time. Skyler, a very photogenic and talented Australian Shepherd posed with Layla for one of the images shown below. Awesome dogs!
