Hi there! I’ve already welcomed you to the blog and shown off some of my work… so what else would you be on THIS page for? Oh, info about meRiiiight. This is the hard part!
I’m a photographer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I use all natural-light to capture portraits of couples, kids, families and pets – and all the combos those can make.
My specialty, my desire, is to always provide a family with images of now. Not the perfectly smiling images of everyone’s perfect hair, perfect shirts and perfectly aligned teeth. I want to capture the TRUE family in the image – and half the time that includes an image of an upset baby, a crying toddler or a fit throwing preschooler. And you know what? Those are my favorites. They hold so much emotion and some much reality. Favorite toys, daily worn t-shirts, shoes or hats your kids won’t take off – that’s what I love to see. Honesty, realism, truth, emotion and now. This is what I love on my walls, all over my home – and this is what I offer to my clients.
I also offer something special to local rescues (All Ears Basset Sanctuary, Watermelon Mountain Ranch and Golden Retriever Rescue of New Mexico to name a few) by volunteering my time and talents to photograph their animals, looking for furever homes. I’ll provide some love and affection while I capture their personalities and stunning looks with professional photography – and offer the use of these images on the rescues’ adoption websites. My hope is to bridge more people with their perfect pet partner!
Thank you for welcoming me into your home or meeting me someplace for me to offer you timeless images, filled with emotion, for you to treasure for a lifetime.
