These aren't the 'sit and smile for the camera' type of sessions. Kids won't sit still? Let them explore, chase them, tickle them. Taking photos with your partner? Be prepared to get barefoot, piggyback, or roll around in the sand. Senior portraits? Let's go on an adventure! Every session is unique to you and your story, and takes into account not just posing and lighting, but also emotions and movement and the environment around you. to create images you can FEEL every square inch of! If this sounds like your cup of tea, contact me and we will work closely together to create the photos you've always wanted.
When the new parent sleep deprivation kicks in, when the kids are off to college, or when the honeymoon is over, looking back at these images will be priceless. Hang your wall art, flip through your album, and enjoy reflecting on this fleeting moment in time.
Two weeks later, after editing and retouching is complete, I will come to you to show you your final images for the first time! You'll cozy up for a slideshow. You'll get to see our heirloom product offerings, and this is when you'll make your purchasing decisions
For around 1-2 hours, I will guide you through your session ensuring we get images that are not only flattering and breathtaking, but images that look authentic and effortless. I want you to leave your session glowing inside and out.
If you opt for a session with hair and makeup, our hair and makeup artist is going to pamper you with a gorgeous makeover, which can be as natural or as glam as you want. Sit back and relax! You deserve it!
Once you're booked, we will work together to make your session tailored to match your personality and style. I will send you a detailed questionnaire, prep emails, and we'll text ideas back and forth until your session day!
We'll chat on the phone for about 15-20 minutes about what you, your family, what sort of photos you're envisioning, and discuss details like session options, pricing and availability. If you're ready, we'll book your date!

We are happy that we hired her for our special day! Sierra made it beautiful with her creative skills. Strongly suggest her service.

WOW!!! We are absolutely thrilled with all of our amazing photos! Sierra is such an awesome person and was able to capture every special moment throughout our day! She knew exactly what to do and say to make us feel 100% comfortable. Looking at our photos brings us right back to that moment! Thank you Sierra for being such an amazing piece of our wedding day! We can’t wait to come back to Alaska for our next adventure! For sure Sierra will be a part of it!

We booked Sierra for our Juneau wedding photos and WOW! are we ever happy we did!!
Not only is she an amazing photographer (that’s clear from her website!), but she managed to make us feel relaxed and comfortable, and we had fun!! (and that’s saying a lot because we do not usually enjoy having our photo taken lol). Thank you so much Sierra for making the whole process simple, for going over and above, and for perfectly capturing us!!!

Sierra is amazing! Her lighting style immediately drew us to her when looking for wedding photographers as we wanted to capture the vibrance and joy of our big day. She met those expectations with her beautiful photos and was also such a pleasure to work with. She is calm, organized, very approachable, and a great communicator, which allowed us to relax and just have fun. Thank you, Sierra!

“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!”
- Kayla T.
“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!
- Christine K.
Sierra photographed our styled elopement and the whole day was just amazing! She is so easy to work with & gives the perfect amount of instructions and freedom to have as much fun as you want to with it. Her pictures turned out better than i could have imagined & really captures the love and joy from that day. We will cherish her work forever. EVERYONE should have Sierra photograph the big & little moments in their lives

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?
The best time to book your session is ASAP to ensure availability. The best time to take your photos is when you are between 28-34 weeks. Your morning sickness has likely subsided and you likely have minimal swelling, so you are generally feeling your best and that will show in your photos.
When should I book my session?
Absolutely! They are an important part of you and your motherhood journey and absolutely deserve to be included in this experience if they want.
Can I bring my partner/kids?
I have photographed women of all ages, shapes and sizes and learned from some of the best photographers in the industry. During your session, I coach you into flattering positions, that accentuate your bump while flattering your figure. I will take a variety of images that capture the strength of motherhood, the silliness of family, and the beautiful longing that you have to meet your baby. You don’t need to know how to do anything but show up and trust the process.
I'm not photogenic, how do I know my photos will turn out ok?
