Porter Family: Family Session & Day in the Life

The Porter Family - Family Session

For the third year in a row I was fortunate to photograph the Porter family. This year they welcomed baby Thaddeus to the family. You can easily tell how in love the entire family is with him. Big sister Jane didn't have to be asked to hug or kiss him, she was so excited when she was holding him she naturally loved on her little brother. I love creating family portraits that a family will look back on and remember they didn't have to pretend for the camera, they just got to be themselves. 

Day in the Life - 1 hr Session

This year we also did a shortened "Day in the Life" session. After their portrait session I followed the Porters back home to capture a bit of their new daily life as a family of four. If you are interested in a "Day in the Life" session please contact me as they are quickly becoming my favorite thing to photograph!

Krista & Sam's Wedding - Denver Museum of Nature and Science

Krista and Sam were married at the Denver Museum of Nature and Sciencein August of 2016*. The weather, the venue, everything was perfect. Krista and Sam were surrounded with love from their oh-so-fun families, what more could you ask for? Oh, a beautiful sunset? Check! Enjoy some images from their big day.

*My blogging was majorly delayed due to the arrival of my son only a month later. 

Siona & Nick’s Wedding – YWCA Piñon Canyon Center, Tijeras, New Mexico

Just outside the city of Albuquerque and surrounded by nature, family and friends gathered as Siona and Nick exchanged vows and started their married life together in June. Siona and Nick found the perfect venue for them and their wedding weekend at the YWCA Piñon Canyon Center in Tijeras, New Mexico. Under a small and oh-so-sweet handmade sign "NJ + SB", they exchanged their vows in a clearing of juniper and southwest brush. After officially becoming husband and wife, it was time to begin the dancing and celebrating! As contra dancers they had a list of dances ready to go to bring their families and friends together immediately after their first dance. By the time the contra dancing was over everyone had worked up quite an appetite and were ready to dig into the fabulous roasted pig that the groom had proudly prepared himself.

The night continued with much more dancing and cake back in the lodge. A roaring bonfire was even built just outside the lodge. Everyone danced the night away, under the stars of the New Mexican sky as the celebration of Siona and Nick continued.

Baby Kaiden - Lifestyle Newborn Photography - Albuquerque, NM

He may already be almost two months old, but I'll say it anyway. Welcome to the world baby Kaiden!

Baby Kaiden was born on Friday April 29, 2016 at 11:10 a.m. He was only a few days early, but he still surprised us all. His lovely parents and I had scheduled a veryvery last minute maternity shoot for Saturday, April 30th. Needless to say, Kaiden had his own plans. So instead, one week later, to the day of our first scheduled photo shoot, I came by to photograph the little guy at 1 week, 1 day old.
