Wild Iris Photography is a modern portrait studio in Juneau, Alaska. Combining fashion and nature to create magazine-worthy photos of everyday women, while helping them discover their inner and outer beauty.
Lush like the Tongass National Forest, Wild Iris images are created from start to finish to be abundant in color and rich with emotion.
Inspired by the Pacific Northwest in all its moody beauty, most sessions take place in nature. If you love the wind in your hair, the smell of the ocean, and the sounds of the forest, you've come to the right place. Wild souls are welcome here.
I believe in pushing expectations aside and being your most authentic self. Whether you're a first-time single mother about to embark on life's greatest adventure, or a breast cancer survivor looking to capture the beauty of your own body, I will help you plan the perfect session.
About Your Photographer
Hey There! I'm Sierra.
Have you ever been at a job interview or on a date and they say "so tell me about yourself", and then all of a sudden you have no idea who you are? Well, that's kind of what it's like writing an "About Me" page, but here goes nothin'.
My name is Sierra, I'm a mother, wife, creator and dream-chaser. On your average day, you can find me in yoga pants, drinking too much coffee, hair in a bun, head in the clouds, juggling a million things at once. I have a toddler, a six-year-old, and a puppy. Our house is loud, messy, chaotic, and full of love. I have a degree in Anthropology and I thought I was going to be a museum curator. I can still spend hours in museums learning about different cultures and admiring old artifacts.
I am a published photographer specializing in female portraits with an editorial flare. I believe every woman of every age, size, sexuality and nationality is beautiful and powerful in her own unique way and I love that my job lets me bring that out through my photos.
"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" - Melanie
"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.
"Sierra was super fun to work with! She had great ideas and also let me and my friend do some of our ideas as well! Pictures turned out great! <3 " - Jayce
"We loved our experience with Sierra. She was so easy to work with and we had fun during the session. Our photos turned out fabulous!" - Liz
"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." - Samantha
"Sierra is a very patient and caring Photographer, always going the extra mile to make sure you get exactly what you want." - Kayla R.
"I recently had a photo shoot with Sierra and she made the whole experience incredibly fun! Her makeup and hair artist, Brandi, made me feel beautiful and did even better than I expected. Whether you’re thinking of a boudoir or family shoot, I highly recommend Wild Iris Photography! Even in this time of social distancing I felt safe with her precautionary steps taken." - Laura
"Sierra is such a great person to work with! She has a great eye and always has such a positive attitude!" - Brandi
