I was so happy to get the opportunity of photographing the precious Stormie family again! I had the best time doing their portraits earlier this year and i've never shot up at the crest in the snow, so when Cameron suggested a snowy mountain shoot for their winter session I was so excited! Oh, and I still can't get enough of their soft and sweet demeanor with each other, even as we were wrapping up they were still so loving and cute, goodness (see last photo)-- seriously so endearing! Love my time with this sweet family.
I had the best time with this sweet little family of three! Cameron and CJ have been together over a decade, and now, they have this precious little guy to add to the fun! It was great getting to know them and taking their family portraits was a breeze. Loved their natural chemistry!
I don't get to shoot with families as often as i'd like since i'm busy with weddings, but when I do my heart bursts with joy! This family traveled from Santa Fe, NM to get their first official family portraits and some shots of their little guy who was about to turn one!
I loved working with this sweet little family of three!
Happy first birthday Sebastian!
Such a special session, with my darling friends Amy & Lucas. They were our first wedding of the season last year, and it is the biggest delight to get to photograph them now, with child! Sweet, precious baby Ella is the luckies to have such loving, caring parents and Amy & Lucas are so incredibly blessed as well. I can't wait to meet her!!!!
I had a great time photographing Ashley & her sweet family. She is actually a local fellow photographer, and one of my second shooters during wedding season, so when she asked me to do her yearly family portraits I was super honored! Aren't her boys the most handsome?? We had so much fun!
The last couple months have been crazy busy with wedding season that I haven't had time to blog about the sweet little ones who have stopped by the studio for their birthday sessions!
So much fun and tons of laughs with these darling little loves.
Precious, bright eyed Isabella is truly a princess! As daughter of John & Danielle Tennyson (who have both served on the Santa Fe Fiesta Court, and momma was the Queen), she truly is born into Santa Fe royalty. I had the best time snuggling this sweet pea, and i'm so looking forward to watching her grow!
A couple months ago I got the sweetest inquiry from a fellow photographer out in Texas. Stephania and her precious family had secured the most perfect vacation rental home for their stay in Taos, NM and they hired me me to go up there to photograph them and their extended family! As the day approached, the weather got more and more questionable (this monsoon season has been throwing me some curve balls), but rain or shine I was headed to Taos to capture these precious memories of them in the beautiful Land Of Enchantment! I'm so grateful the weather held out for us and so happy to have met such a lovely family!
Photographing this perfect family is always so heart warming. So much love and joy in every frame, its hard for me to sort and decide on which ones to share! I can't believe it has been over a year that we did Johnna's & Mario's pregnancy announcement and here they are, a year later just loving on their baby girl!! <3
I had such a fun time meeting and getting to know Shavawn & Rashad! I seriously laughed so hard throughout our session together. Miss Aniya is blessed to have such fun, loving, wonderful parents. I can not wait to meet this precious princess, she is going to be absolutely beautiful!
I still can't believe this little stud is ONE!! I've been photographing him and his family since he was just four months old and now he's walking, I mean RUNNING all over!! I just love this little guy! HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAMERON!!!
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!!
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!
When you think of where you want to invest $250, what immediately comes to mind? Perhaps a new spring wardrobe, maybe you'll save it towards a bigger purchase like the latest and greatest tech toy out there? Well Shannon decided that she'd invest $250 into tangible memories of her sweet 6 month old and still moments through photographs of her brand new family of three.
I am always so incredibly humbled when new clients reach out and inquire about a portrait session (or wedding); most especially when they reach out months in advance to book a session, budget & save because they recognize the quality work & great experience they will receive. Shannon inquired early this year and shared with me the importance of capturing these fleeting moments of her precious baby girl. She knew she wanted to invest in my professional photography services & was confident that my work was worth saving for. They traveled all the way from Las Cruces for their session and now have these beautiful photographs to admire for life.
Thank you Shannon, Alex & Zoey & to all my sweet clients. I am so appreciative of those who take note that I pour my heart into every session, value my work & allow me to be a part of these passing moments that will be cherished for eternity through still photographs! <3
Pretty sun light, beautiful family & baby fedoras = one pretty great session! :) Thank you Maestas family for trusting me to capture such precious memories!!
I think its safe to say that I left this session with that much more of a happy soul. Little miss Andrea turned two this year - she was absolutely adorable and so vivacious, which made our studio session together a breeze! When it was time to take portraits of both Andrea and her momma, I knew I was in for a treat. These two have a connection like no other. So in sync and cohesive, you can see it in every.single.photo. I was so honored to capture their sweet bond.
A blog preview of Karen & Co.'s sweet maternity session. Loved capturing their radiating smiles!! Their love for each other was apparent in every frame - can't wait to meet baby J next month!
