Jemez ~ Jessica’s Senior Session

This girl is already a world traveler. Wanderlust isn’t a thing she decided to be it found her and is her, in the most natural way there is. I grew up exploring this state and it created in me a deep love of all that is New Mexico. My childhood is why I have a continued passion for exploring New Mexico’s beauty and diversity. It bloomed into a love for making New Mexico the backdrop of my work. This isn’t about me, I just relate and find her fascinating. Her mom Teresa came along for the session, we all rode together and I enjoyed our time together so much. I learned so much about them and their experience living in India for 6 years. They exude so much calm, I don’t even know how to explain it, but they are just the sweetest, most kind people. I am truly blessed to get to know so many fascinating people.



Jess wanted to show her love of travel and pastries. Apparently, she is a great cook and baker, she really should have brought me a sample so I could vouch for her 😉


All the feels.

Photography to me is about capturing people as their best selves. Having a consult and finding out what matters to them. Is there a dream there to fulfill or is the dream to simply look beautiful in photos. Helping people capture those ever evolving relationships that matter so much to them. Showing those loving ties, personalities, emotion, beauty, connection. I want people to be excited when they see their photos, like through the roof excited because they are finally "seeing" what they really look like...amazing and beautiful. During the shoot people have repeatedly told me how comfortable they felt, no worries about weight etc crept in. They had fun, and enjoyed themselves. Part of why they feel at ease because I tell them what they need to do to look stunning every step of the way. A models job is to work their body, that's what they do, the other 90% of us have no idea how to do that, that's what I am here for. Beyond that, being photographed by me is a real meaningful boost to ones self-esteem. You will walk away feeling better about yourself, inside and out. It just happens that way.
