Natasha & Andrew... Parents to be! | Albuquerque Maternity Photography | Alicia Lucia Photography

I was so happy to hear from Natasha earlier this year when she scheduled her maternity session. I've photographed both of her nieces, so it was a treat to get her in front of the camera, in probably the most beautiful time of her life. Isn't she just absolutely radiating and glowing with happiness? 

I absolutely loved photographing these two.. well three, I suppose! ;) SO excited to meet this precious baby girl!!

Lovato Family | Albuquerque, NM | Family Photographer Albuquerque | Alicia Lucia Photography

It is always a treat to catch up with past clients & marvel at how much the little ones have grown!! I love visiting with this family & I adore photographing them!

PS. How adorable was their outfit change?? Sweet Landyn has a thing for superman so they just had to incorporate the superhero theme!! I can already see mom & dad utilizing some of these images in his senior year slideshow! 

Rebecca + Bud | Engagement Session | Albuquerque Wedding Photographer | Alicia Lucia Photography

Earlier this month I traveled to Datil, New Mexico, to meet and take Rebecca & Bud's engagement portraits. I was in for a treat with these two. Bud, a proud Datil native, and Rebecca, a small town gal from Las Vegas, NM, met & fell in love in the big city of Las Cruces.

When it came to deciding on a location for their engagement session, they instantly knew that Bud's family property in Datil was the perfect spot!! They brought along their pup Rowdy & we explored the beautiful Cibola National Forrest.

I absolutely adored getting to know these two and capturing their natural, dynamic love for each other was a breeze. I seriously can not wait for their wedding later this year!! 

Jonathon + Kassandra | Albuquerque Engagement Photographer | Alicia Lucia Photography

I was so happy when Kassandra came to me with their idea of incorporating baseball into their engagement session! These two met in college 6 years ago. Jon played baseball and she played softball & next week they will be saying "I Do"!

Congratulations Jon & Kassandra!!

Miss Albuquerque | Gabrielle Torres | Albuquerque Photography

It was such a wonderful opportunity getting to meet and take Miss Albuquerque's headshots for her reign this year! Gabrielle is truly one of the most kind hearted people I have met to date, with so much drive, passion and integrity - I'm super proud that she is representing our city with so much grace! Best of luck to you at Miss New Mexico & then at Miss America Gabby!! You totally got this girlie!

Lenora & Aubrey | Maternity | Pregnancy Announcement | Rio Rancho, NM

I was honored when Lenora reached out to capture such an exciting time in her & Aubrey's life. I loved how passionate she was about having one last "Mommy & Aubs" session. She shared the importance of really capturing their laidback yet spunky relationship. They did wonderful and i'm so excited to have been a part!

Nicole | Family Portraits | Albuquerque Family Photographer

A blog preview of this adorable family! I was so happy to meet these four & to capture their love for each other! I had to throw in a sweet "behind the scenes" of Savastian fixing little guy's boots.. It is always so heart warming when dads are so hands on - he was doing anything he possibly could to make the little ones smile, fixing boots, and fixing hair! So sweet :)
