NICE TO MEET YOU

Hi there! I'm so excited you're here! I'm Jannicka, the gal behind the camera here at Way Up North.

As you may have guessed by now, I live in Alaska! I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest, but I've lived all over the country with my husband and two kids over the past few years. My daily life consists of homeschooling my children, attempting to grow a garden, taking walks in our wild back yard, and watching moose stroll through the neighborhood. We have one fat cat, a couple of bunnies, and way too many houseplants. I love coffee, tacos, plants, the mountains, pine trees, good books, all things vintage, going on adventures, and spending time with my family.

I absolutely love photographing lifestyle family sessions, intimate weddings, and elopements! My goal is to capture your Alaskan adventures in the most authentic way possible. My approach is less pose-y and more candid--it's not your typical "everyone stand there and look at the camera and smile" (not that there's anything wrong with that). I prefer to capture the genuine emotions and connections between you and your family while you're interacting together--laughing, playing, tickling, snuggling, hugging, kissing, talking, running. I strive to capture the subtle things, the every day things, the big things, the little things, the looks, the moments, the feelings, the closeness. I want to capture you being you. My hope is that you feel something when you look back on your photos. I hope your photos tell the world about your life, your love, your family, your story.

Please drop me a line if you're interested in chatting about a family session or wedding photography! I've got my snow boots and my camera ready to go. I can't wait!
