Fall photography fun in the evening light

It's fall family portrait season! So many wonderful families, fun, and beautiful scenery as well. I've known this family since their oldest was a baby and I was so happy to see them again!

They are super fun and full of great ideas. Each of the kids found the perfect pose for a scenic portrait.

Not a million fall leaves were down yet but we used what there was.

These ages of children make family photography so easy and fun! There is a lot of action and enthusiasm and never a dull moment.

And they were even game for some silhouettes at the end, I love it! Thanks so much, it was wonderful to see you again.

If you're interested in more information about a family photography session, my website has lots of info about how I do sessions. Or you can call or email me if you have questions or would just like to chat about it, no pressure.

I love doing sunset sessions in parks like this one, but there are other good places around Albuquerque, even in the winter, which is coming all too soon! For lots of other session locations, see this blog page here.

A beautiful evening maternity photography session

This lovely couple is expecting their first baby next month. I was thrilled to meet them and work with them for these maternity portraits.

I loved the whole session, but especially the silhouettes (which tend usually to be my favorite).

Senior portraits - why can't it be summer forever?

This was an absolutely lovely senior session with a beautiful girl that I really enjoyed meeting. It was a perfect summer evening and one of those sessions where everything came together just like you'd hope.

She also has great plans for the future - one of my favorite parts of senior portraits is hearing about what direction they're planning to head next!

See what I mean about her eyes? But I was really impressed with her, inside and out.

What did she and her family choose? They wanted the digital files along with copyright permission. This is probably my most popular package for senior portraits (which makes sense...) and it includes an 11x14" canvas wall hanging. Beautiful!

We can't all have senior portraits done on a beautiful summer evening like this, but if you are interested in senior portraits, I'd love to chat with you and discuss how to make yours the best they can be! We can meet in person or talk on the phone, or you can email me. I also have more information about my senior portraits on my website.

Senior portraits - high above Albuquerque

I've taken senior portraits in the East Mountains before. And I've been up to the top of Sandia Crest. But I've never done senior portraits up there before, and I loved it!

We started out a little lower down for some pictures with his truck. Love the gorgeous aspen trees! It's fall up high already.

I love using cars and trucks with senior portraits when seniors want to.

A little higher up is this gorgeous mountain meadow.

He had all the locations planned and the best props too.

And a little higher up we came to the city view. Amazing!

I'd never been to this stone hut before - such a cool place.

I always love to get a picture with Mom if I can - this was a surprise to her but I love it!

There is light at the end of the tunnel! Thanks so much to this amazing senior and his mom - I hope the rest of his senior year is a blast.
