My husband and I have a vacation rule that we never voluntarily go anywhere that’s cold…we just have a really hard time sticking to that. This current cold snap has me thinking about our trip to Alaska last summer, so I thought I’d share some of the photographs we made in our “downtime” from hiking and exploring!
As always, my CX post series is a look at what I do on the other side of the camera – I put myself in YOUR shoes at least once a month to make sure I’m always at my peak for coaching poses and expressions! The photo shoots we did on this cruise started off with my 114th session in front of the camera <3
Like I said, I’m not typically one to enjoy the cold, but Alaska in the summertime is absolutely beautiful! We tried to get as close to summer solstice as possible in hopes of higher temperatures (and longer days!), but quickly found out that it was “unseasonably cold” according to the locals – just our luck!
However, we did win out on the longer days, which gave us time for photo shoots on the sea days in between dinner and the late night shows. With the long twilights and 11:30 p.m. “sunsets”, I was anxious to shoot every chance we got!
Warm wardrobe be damned, when you get a chance to do photos like these, you wear whatever looks best! It was cold, it was windy, and it was 100% worth it.
I adore the keyhole opening in this dress.
Low bun – looks fancy and is perfect for windy situations…in Alaska or Kansas!
Some late night Flamenco looks 😉
Perfectly framed booty shot!
It almost looks warm…it definitely wasn’t!
And now, I just want to curl up in a blanket with some cocoa and a book… What’s your favorite winter pastime?
