Fourth birthday milestone session in a fireweed field

I’ve photographed Aria since she was in her mommy’s belly. It’s hard to believe she’s about to celebrate her 4th birthday! For this session we decided to do something different and plan our session around the fireweed. This is my “secret” field that took FOREVER to bloom, but oh, it was worth the wait. Aria loved to pick the flowers, dance, and play. Our little flower child.

documenting Alaskan Families’ most meaningful moments

Megan Marlene Photography is a natural light photography studio located in East Anchorage and is the top choice for families wanting beautiful portraits documenting the meaningful moments in their lives. My modern minimalist studio is a warm, inviting space filled with pure, bright light and an all-white decor, providing the ideal atmosphere for our session together. I work with each family to help style your outfits and offer a full studio wardrobe with options for the entire family.

With over 10 years of experience, I have photographed hundreds of babies and have welcomed families from across Alaska. My heart is in all things motherhood as well as newborn, maternity, milestone, and family photography. These light-filled portraits document the real moments in the most beautiful way: cuddling, laughing, playing, their chubby little hand holding tightly to yours. Those are the most precious, meaningful moments you can experience, and the very ones you want to remember forever.

Outside of the studio, I have scouted some of the most picturesque locations in Alaska. Whether you want a field filled with fireweed, a mountaintop scattered with wild blueberries, the rocky shoreline of a glacier-fed river, or the oceanside at sunset, each location is filled with warm, golden light and ready to welcome your family.

From adding a new little one to the mix to documenting your “right now” before the kids get too big, there is never a wrong time for family pictures and I would love to help plan a session for you. Get in touch through the contact page or email me directly at
