Fashion portraits on the beach!

Long time client Heather, who lives in Arizona, commissioned me to fly to southern California to do three shoots in one:  family portraits, senior portraits for her oldest son, and some very special fashion portraits of just her wearing a fabulous, slinky red gown. This, ladies, is my forté:  photographing women beautifully. We wandered up and down La Jolla Cove as the waves crashed, and I got some simply amazing pictures of her. If you would like to dress up and create some incredible portraits like these, for no other reason than you’re gorgeous and you deserve to feel beautiful, contact me for a consultation.

Red Rock Canyon family photos :: the Smiths

I was the lucky photographer for Alex and Emily’s wedding in 2012, and exactly six years to the day later, I was the lucky photographer who got to make some new portraits of them with their three beautiful children in Red Rock Canyon. Just look at these gorgeous babies! As for Emily and Alex, I was so happy to see them again, I couldn’t stop talking, I wanted to hear all that they’ve been up to since they got married! (Besides making babies, that is.) By the way, Emily’s a family photographer too, and her work is beautiful! If you’re lucky enough to live in south central New Mexico, you can have her do YOUR family pictures. Follow Emily here on Instagram:  (@mrs.emilysmith). 

Belmar Park family portraits

Will you look at this sweet family?!? As you can see, Amy and Tyler are working on baby #3, and he or she is due to arrive later this month. We did these portraits last month in Belmar Park to document Amy’s beautiful belly, but also to capture this moment in time before they become a family of five. Watch this space for newborn portraits when their littlest decides to join us!

Maternity portraits :: Eboni + Michael

I did Eboni’s high school senior portraits about nine years ago, and we’ve stayed in touch since then via Facebook. I was over the moon when she contacted me to do maternity portraits for her and her husband, Michael. I don’t know who’s more excited about this baby, me or them! We did a few poses at my studio, then headed to Ute Valley Park for the rest. Look how adorable they are! They’re going to have such a beautiful baby!
