I want to tell your story, from the big picture to the tiny in-between moments. From the earth-shaking events that shaped you into who you are today, to the way you wrinkle you nose when your partner makes you laugh and the way you close your eyes when the wind catches your hair. The beautiful, messy, love story of you, so that one day you can hold this photograph in your wrinkled hands and remember what a beautiful life you lived.
“I had a lot of confidence in Sierra as a photographer but I was still pretty sure I would hate the pictures because I hate all pictures of me. I totally had a panic attack about it before arriving. And I LOVE these pictures so so so much. I adore them all, it actually made me cry”
“Taking photos with Sierra is fun and easy going. The experience was really special and intimate. No pressure to be perfect, and just capturing the moment in its most natural state. The final product turned out beautifully too! I would recommend any couple to schedule a session with Wild Iris Photography!”

“Working with Sierra was very easy. She was so sweet and very receptive to my ideas and added ideas of her own. When we got to the site she brought chocolate for my daughter as a special treat which was so thoughtful. She made beautiful maternity photos for my family to look back on for years to come. I would highly recommend her for your family photos.”
“After a lifetime of feeling uncomfortable in my own skin I was nervous and excited about my boudoir shoot. My partner and I were immediately at ease with the professionalism and direction that Wild Iris photography continuously gave throughout the shoot. A lifetime of uncertainty was turned into confidence! Seeing just a glimpse of our photos has us so excited to see the rest - we know without a doubt that not only photos will be something we cherish but the experience as well. Highly recommend!”
“Sierra is an AMAZING photographer and really catches the beauty in a photo. She is kind, sweet, honest and really cares about her clients. I cannot recommend her enough. I would give her way more than 5 stars. She makes you feel so comfortable, confident and gorgeous during the shoot. I’ve done 2 shoots with her so far and I CANNOT wait to do another one with her again. Sierra is a serious blessing! You will not regret getting your photos done by this gorgeous lady!”
I cannot recommend Sierra enough. We used Wild Iris for Senior Pictures. Our whole experience was about so much more than just pictures. My daughter has never been a fan of having her picture taken. Sierra really took the time to get to know her and what she wanted before the photo session. Sierra arranged for hair and makeup before the shoot which was so convenient and turned out amazing. She has an excellent eye for perfect photo spots and made sure my daughter was comfortable and enjoying the shoot the entire time. When we received the final photos I was speechless. They are so beautiful. They really reflect my daughter’s personality. Everything went above and beyond my expectations and I look forward to using Wild Iris Photography again in the future.

It has been an honor to work with Sierra. She works magic with her camera lens. I'm super excited to start sharing her creations from our branding photoshoot together last week. She made me feel at ease right away. And her images reflect me as an artist; fun, messy, colorful. I highly recommend her work!

My name is Sierra, I’m a mother, wife, creator & dream-chaser. Have you ever been at a job interview or on a date and they say “so tell me about yourself”, and then all of a sudden you have no idea who you are? Well, that’s kind of what it’s like writing an “About Me” page, but here goes nothin’.
On your average day, you can find me in yoga pants, drinking WAY too much coffee, hair in a messy bun, head in the clouds, juggling a million things at once. I have two boys and a puppy. Our house is loud, messy, chaotic, and full of love. I received my degree in Anthropology and am a big history nerd., I have been teaching myself photography for well over a decade and I couldn't imagine my life without it.

That feeling you get when you spin in circles
When the wind catches your hair
Then we wear rain boots! Juneau is a rainforest after all. Sometimes we have to make the most of what mother nature gives us. If it sprinkles or drizzles, we can make some truly beautiful photos from it getting muddy and puddle jumping. However, I also want this to be a positive experience for everyone, so If it's pouring and windy, we will reschedule.
What if it rains?
I am located in Juneau, Alaska, which is on the ancestral land of the Tlingit Aanii and a part of the Tongass National Rainforest. Juneau
Where are you located?
I'm so glad you asked! I adore travel and have photographed clients as far Las Vegas and Oklahoma City. See the About section of the site for more info and contact me for availability!
Do you travel?
I have photographed people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and nationalities and learned from some of the best photographers in the industry. I have studied posing and extensively and I even know how to coach for facial expressions to bring out emotion in your photos. All you have to do is trust in the process.
I'm not photogenic, how do I know my photos will turn out ok?
