waterfall couple's session

Christina and Lucas’ session took place at Nugget Falls Waterfall in Juneau Alaska. Nugget Falls is a large and epic waterfall located in the Mendenhall Valley right next to the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau Alaska. It is one of the most scenic locations in Juneau Alaska, whether you’re getting your photo taken, or taking photos yourself. In this blog post I will share a little bit more about Nugget Falls, how to get there, and things you need to know before you go.

intimate winter maternity session

For Asya’s snowy maternity session, I wanted to give her both those beautiful outdoor winter maternity photos as well as some tasteful and timeless intimate maternity photos. First, we rented the gorgeous Jorgensen House, one of our favorite BNBs in historic downtown Juneau Alaska. Then we added this amazing dress from Leah Maria Couture to the client closet, which fit her perfectly. For the cherry on top, we hired the very talented Devyn Reece to do her hair and makeup. After staying nice and warm inside the BNB, we travelled outdoors into the snow (note that if you book a session with me, we will inevitably end up in the wild). They pulled up their xtratuf boots, snuggled up to stay warm, and caught snowflakes on their tongues.

I don’t know about you, but I love trying new things, especially when it comes to boudoir sessions. For Krystal Rose’s boudoir shoot, we busted out a couple of new props that I have been dying to try. First we played with the Vintage Playboy Magazines that I acquired, all authentic 70s, 80s, and 90s vintage playboy magazine. Then, she tried on the very swanky rose gold and black leather hand cuffs and equestrian collar I acquired from luxury lingerie brand Honey Birdette. Also, check out this Boudoir Video from partner vendor, videographer Kris Kross Creatives, which is now available as an add-on to any boudoir session. Take a look!

“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!” – Chloey
