Sandia Crest ~ Firth Family

What do you say about a family that you have seen grow so much over the last year? Going from no kids to preggers to becoming parents of the cutest little babe.  They clearly love each other and having a child together seems to have only strengthened it further. I love seeing how couples compliment each other in traits. Emilee is one of the most laid back and optimistic people I have ever met. I admire Jason’s upbringing on a farm and it’s clear he continues to work hard and make things happen. Their sweet girl is so blessed to have them as her parents. Families can be together forever and stuff you know?…It’s beautiful.

Three Generations ~ Santa Fe Plaza

There is something seriously special about gathering more then two generations together for photographs. Can you imagine how they will feel about these pictures 10, 20 years from now? Have you ever had pictures like this before? Or just random snapshots, where someone in the room realizes there are 3 or 4 generations of women and someone tells you all to quickly sit on the couch, uh hello bad lighting and unflattering poses. There is still value in those snapshots don’t get wrong, but how cool would it be if we all had nice portraits done with those we love!  Celebrate your love for your family!!!

We had a great time walking around the Santa Fe Plaza for these pictures, we laughed and laughed and just had a great time!

Thank you to Veronica Spence for being the MUA & assistant

Downtown Albuquerque ~ Harvey Family

Most of this lovely family is from out of state. I did the consultation with Susan the matriarch of this stunning group over the phone. I also worked with her DIL who lived here at the time, they moved like 2 days after this session to Michigan. Anyhow it was fun working with Heidi to come up with a location for their mini session. Technically my mind is always on scout mode for potential shoot locations everywhere I go. I just can’t remember them all. So I went weaving through the streets of Albuquerque’s down town and snapped pictures with my phone of potential locations and texted them to her and this is the one she liked best for their family photo shoot. A good choice I think! I love the different elements at play here, the concrete, the stone, the pale red stairs, at this angle the guard rail wasn’t a distraction, but creates good lines and flow. You can even see a touch of the city and the pillars are another fun element. The low wall keeps out what could be possible distractions. After this experience I think I am going to start taking pictures of all potential locations and make some kind of cataloging system so I can show them to clients if I need to. Oh the joy of inspiration and progression!

Such a fun family! You never know what kind of dynamics are going to exist within a large group, especially family 😉 and they were so easy to work with. They were fun, easy going and listened so well! Thank you Harvey family, I’d take your pictures anytime, anywhere!
