Barbie found me last fall through another client of mine, and she and her little family have quickly become favorites! I felt an instant connection and friendship with Barbie.

A Lifestyle Maternity Session | Las Cruces, New Mexico Maternity Photographer

This Lifestyle Maternity Session ended up being one of my favorite sessions to date! Kursty approached me about doing an in-home maternity session during the final weeks before her due date. This would likely be her last pregnancy, and she’d always wanted to have maternity pictures taken, but never had–so this seemed like the perfect […]

(Portland Oregon Portrait Photographer) While visiting my mom in Portland, Oregon this summer, I took Morgan’s 15 year old portraits! Being a photographer comes with its own sets of perks and drawbacks…and one of those drawbacks is that, in the midst of my hectic session schedule for the last few years, I haven’t been so […]

Abby | NMSU Graduation Portraits in Las Cruces & White Sands | Las Cruces Senior Photographer

NMSU College Graduation Pictures at Aguirre Springs, Las Cruces, New Mexc

Abby was super impressive right from our first emails back and forth! She had a really clear vision of what she was looking for in her NMSU graduation/senior portraits, and I couldn’t help but be excited from the start. It’s always so rewarding to be found by clients who are willing to put their trust […]

I’ve watched this little family grow from a couple of newlyweds to a sweet family of four, and I’ve had the privilege of capturing pretty much all their major milestones during that time–Lifestyle/newborn sessions for both of the boys and first birthday/family portraits for their oldest. When Cassel and Julianna moved from New Mexico to […]

Stephens Family | Family Portraits at White Sands, New Mexico

I can’t even. This family portrait session at White Sands still makes me giddy! Be forewarned–I’m shamelessly oversharing, but it’s one of those #sorrynotsorry situations. You’ll be glad I did, once you’ve seen them all! If you’ve followed me for a while, Mandy and Russell may look a little familiar to you! Last summer, I […]

I do a decent job of staying on top of blogging engagement sessions and weddings, but 2018 portrait sessions have kind of gotten away from me! As much as I love all the families and seniors I shoot for, and as much as I’d LOVE to get all their sessions up here on the blog, […]

Kaili and Cody | Maternity Session on the Rio Grande in Las Cruces, New Mexico

Kaili is a wedding planner! Her business, Linen & Charm, is based in Las Cruces, New Mexico (helloooo, all my LC Brides!). Obviously, right now she’s a little preoccupied with the sweet baby boy about to enter her life, but just sayin’…for future reference. 😉 Kaili got my name and information through a mutual photographer […]

Hi Friends! I did something today that I’ve never done before, and I’m so excited to share! As a portrait photographer, probably the question I get asked the most is “What should we wear for our pictures?” I get it —it’s really hard to know what will look good together, and also what will look […]
