Winter Family Portraits at Gold Creek Pond

I really think every family should have at least one snowy winter portrait session. Not only are they perfect to use for Christmas cards, but the snow makes for one of the best natural props. Just think of it—the kids can run around and throw snowballs, make snow angels, and catch snowflakes on their tongues […]

Cle Elum Winter Family Portraits

These three families have a tradition of meeting up for a mountain getaway together each winter. They’ve been friends since high school, all had their children within the same year (with one more on the way now!) and are now closer than ever.

Several weeks ago now (goodness, time has been flying, hasn’t it?) I had the distinct pleasure of witnessing more than one pivotal and unforgettable moment in the lives of the Sy family.

Old Town Albuquerque Family Portraits | The Burkhards

Sometimes, it takes a few tries to nail down a time for everyone in a family to get together for a photo session.

It’s no […]

Rattlesnake Lake Family Portraits | Amaris & Ryan

Over Thanksgiving weekend, I had a little impromptu photo session with another local photographer, Amaris, and her husband Ryan. I know, isn’t that funny? As soon as the two hubbies got over introducing themselves and simultaneously stating their same names at the same time, we got to work while this beautiful light lasted. (Because nowadays, it’s […]

Monroe Family Portraits | The Kearneys

My absolute favorite part of being a photographer is being able to seize moments of both momentous occasions and the everyday and make them into art, into tangible memories. Being a photographer means being an artist and storyteller, and there is nothing I love better than telling stories. The perk of doing this as a […]

Fall Family Portraits | The Plomers

Last time, I shared a bit about the Coffing family and our session together earlier this month. I meant to share about the Plomers in the same post, since their sessions overlapped and they happen to be family, but after rambling on for eighteen hours, I decided it would probably be best to save them […]

Fall Family Portraits | The Coffings

I had the perfect plan going in my head for my fall family portrait sessions in Albuquerque earlier this month. I thought to myself, hey, we’ll set up camp in the bosque and catch some pretty yellow cottonwoods! It will be so pretty! Then when I actually got home I realized that though it was […]
