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!

Engagement portraits at Mueller State Park :: Samantha + Joe

I’m very fond of Samantha. I’ve been photographing her since she was a teenager! Over the years I’ve documented a few milestones in Samantha’s and her family’s lives, but I’m extra excited about this one: she’s engaged to a great guy! Their wedding is scheduled for next summer and I can’t wait! In October I spent a glorious, golden afternoon with Joe, Samantha and her daughter Izzy at Mueller State Park, taking their engagement portraits. It’s a beautiful spot and I love how these came out. I can’t wait for their wedding!

What a sweet little family they make!
