Here’s more from WSJ.com:
The 13-month calendar–the first of its kind–includes dozens of original portraits and candid shots of the Alaska governor on the job and with her family. July’s pictorial, for instance, features Palin wrapped in the American flag, with a sidebar of pictures of her and her children.
“This flag photo was taken just days after the terrorist attacks on 9/11 in 2001. Sarah, like the rest of the nation, was trying to cope with the attacks on American soil and demonstrating her patriotism,” the caption reads.
Judy Patrick, A Wasilla photographer, said her inspiration for the calendar was a simple one–she needs money. She and her husband are in the process of selling their Wasilla home to purchase a $250,000 condo in Anchorage that is somewhat out of their price range. They are looking to close on their new home Dec. 1.
“I’m hoping to sell enough calendars to make a healthy down payment,” Patrick said in an interview, noting that the project is entirely self-funded and won’t benefit anything but her home-buying interests.

It’s also available in local book stores in Wasilla and Anchorage.
Patrick said she was wary of appearing to exploit her friendship with the Palin family. She has known the governor since 1996 and served as her deputy mayor in Wasilla. She described herself as a “Palin surrogate” and before she set out to make the calendar earlier this month, she said she emailed Palin’s husband, Todd, to ask if he would have any problem with it. He never responded, so she moved ahead.
The photos are ones she amassed over her years of friendship with Palin as well as official photography work she did during Palin’s gubernatorial campaign and two recent shots of Palin on the campaign trail. She owns the rights to the images, but said some of her best shots aren’t included because she gave them to the campaign. “I actually made this calendar with the remnants,” she said.
