elle’s beautiful family | albuquerque family photographer

I was so excited that my sweet friend Elle {an AMAZING photographer!} and her family came to visit for Balloon Fiesta. We had a blast while she was here! It was fun to do some shooting (with our cameras, LOL) together and have our families hang out. Her oldest son and Sierra were friends the moment they met. It was so cute to watch them play and laugh together. We miss you guys already!  Love you. ♥ ♥ ♥

We did a quick mini session before church on Sunday and these are my favorites…

Isn’t she GORGEOUS…

R - These are wonderful! I especially love the ones where the family is lined up with the boys in Elle’s lap. So cute! You amaze me with the number of poses and shots that you get in each session. And you capture the love! I am going to start calling you “the love catcher”!


Grace’s senior session was so much fun! It was a little warm outside and we did a lot of walking, but it was wonderful hanging out with her and her sweet mom. Grace’s dad met us and brought Zoe (her cute little pug) and her best friend Bri came and joined us too. It was a lovely afternoon.  I’m so happy with what we got…I hope you are too Grace!

Best Friends!!  🙂

rebecca & nick + their dog jack ♥ albuquerque maternity photographer

Meet Rebecca and Nick! They are expecting their first baby next month. I think they are the sweetest, most adorable couple EVER! I had a blast hanging out with them and their awesome dog Jack. He was definitely more interested in exploring and checking out other dogs then photos…but in the end we tired him out and he did great! Oh, and they don’t know what they are having yet. I really admire couples with self discipline that can wait to find out. I am not one of them LOL! It sure will be an exciting delivery day though! They are going to be wonderful parents.

My fave…they are gorgeous!

Jack was such a sweetie…

Amy - Aaah! Love these pictures! You really captured what a fun loving and sweet couple they are! Nick and Becca, I love em! And Jack is so big!

April 30, 2010 - 3:58 am

R. - What a sweet couple! I LOVE how you captured their love! And Jack the dog is so comical. His face is so expressive; he reminds me of a cartoon character. I am in awe of how you continue to get such varied shots and true emotion. You are a master!

Austin - You are on top of your GAME as always! The dog reminds me of the huge dog on “The Never Ending Story”!

Ellen - Awww….that first one is so sweet! 🙂
