Celeste is the captian of her volleyball team. She’s leading her team to a great season and I’m excited to see how far they can push themselves.

This chair makes the perfect table/plate for eating smashed cake. Clean up was so fun!

It’s a tradition in our family to have a birthday photo session each year. My hope is that one day my children will have a collection of photos of themselves to enjoy with their children. I’ll also have a collection to weep over once they’ve grown up and left me an empty nester. Oh that is such a sad thought. A sad thought even on the days when all I long for a little peace and quiet.

Just like Melody’s 4 year birthday session I created these photos at the Fabian Garcia Gardens.

I often get asked how Skye is different than Melody.

That has been one of the sweetest things about having a second child. She is totally her own person and her personality enhances our family’s dynamic.

Skye is stubborn, loving, curious, and always ready for adventure.

Her little toothless smile (that’s right, 1 years old and no teeth yet) brings my heart so much joy.

Shooting in Mesilla is always a popular choice for its array of backdrops within walking distance and southwest vibes.

Parents to be: Pecan Orchard Maternity Session – Las Cruces Maternity and Newborn Photographer

Kelly and Adam drove from El Paso to hang out with me in a mosquito full pecan orchard. That is dedication. I love the feel of these images. Kelly made sure I knew she wanted a more “family session” feel and included their fur babies in the fun.
