I met Alena when I lived in Alaska back in 2008 while both of us were on a study abroad program. I still remember that day when we first met. It was a Finance class at University of Alaska Anchorage. We immediately became friends and have been best friends ever since. Alena always supported my passion for photography and she was also my first model. One day we decided to do this Russian Wintertail style photoshoot. Alena's outfit and accessories looked amazing! Just look at that beautiful flower crown that she made! I was ecstatic! Even though it was winter and it was freezing outside, Alena was so patient with me the whole time. We did her portrait session in the park full of pine trees because that location was way too perfect.
Anyways, check these out. Alena looked magical and I am so happy to share these memories with you!
