Lisa’s Mom entered her to win the October 5th drawing from KFAT for the free portrait session and she was lucky enough to win! Lisa is an early graduate so she’s outta school in December – lucky girl. Lucky me — I got to shoot her dimples and dinky nose ring. Totally loved the shoot, despite staying inside because it’s too cold for outside shooting.
She turned 7 and had a photo session.
jc and i have worked together before — at the beginning of the summer. he wanted something more urban this time … i think we got it.
cameron and his mom came up from juneau for a photo shoot and other business. cam wanted some cool shots that didn’t have anything to do with being inside a studio, so we hiked around outside and got these cool images. it was a fun shoot – except that my flash wouldn’t work … it was very beautiful but also very cold, so i’m going to have to find a new system for my flash units.
can you see the irish in those eyes? gorgeous! her and tullie were a blast to have in the studio. thanks for picking jamie lang photography, ladies!
The Institute of the North, founded by the late Governor Walter J. Hickel, is a leader in the study of Alaska’s unique governmental and economic system that combines a constitutional democracy, a free enterprise economy and commonly owned lands and resources (i.e., the Commons). The “commons” is an academic discipline of great significance to those dedicated to eliminating poverty in community-based cultures as well as those concerned about the total environment – people, people’s needs and nature.
While other scholarly centers may focus on the “tragedy of the commons” in destitute and over-populated regions, the Institute of the North specializes in how to utilize and care for the resource-rich commons for the benefit of those living in and on the commons. Areas of special study include Alaska, the many regions of the Arctic and other areas of the world that are lightly populated and wealthy in both human cultures and natural resources.
The 2010 Alaska Dialogue Confronting Entitlement: Fearlessness, Investment and Entrepreneurism in Alaska 17-19 September 2010 Talkeetna, Alaska
Throughout its history, Alaska has faced crossroads, cliffs and precipices. Every time Alaskans round a corner, they are faced with a new challenge. Alaskans have heard before that making the right decisions today means a brighter future for tomorrow. More often than not, those decisions have been put off. Today, many speak of Alaska as an “entitlement state,” where ownership equals expectation rather than responsibility.
At the same time, the state can claim a wealth of resources – both natural and human. How can Alaskans cultivate a culture of giving, leadership and innovation? Alaska can not afford avoided decisions, complacency or a civic divisiveness that contributes to a “toxic” environment of blame, territorialism or risk aversion.
This is how the weekend started out and ended – it was beyond beautiful outside. I could NEVER get sick of this view. Ever!
