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.

Jemez ~ McMurtrey Family

This family was so relaxed and easy going. They really are just a great family and it’s so abundantly clear how much they love each other. We had so much fun. She even told me her husband said something later to her about how it didn’t feel like they were getting there pictures taken. Success!!! That’s what I want! I want people to have a little adventure, and just enjoy being outside in a beautiful place with the people they love most. While I would take pictures of one kid everyone else was hiking around , they had a great time! Gahhh…could you ask for a prettier place?! I mean they are RED rocks! I love you Jemez muah! Let the cuteness commence…SONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSCSONY DSC

Thanks McMurtrey family ❤

Thank You Veronica! She’s the HUMA I work with, she did Amy’s hair and make-up.

Sand Bluffs ~ Young’s

I’m glad I am in the business of making photographs and not putting words together. My words seem to be failing me lately. It’s a good thing a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ve actually said like 30 thousand words!!! Ha take that writers block or whatever you want to call my inability to string words together to make anything good sounding. I was most excited when these lovely ladies were up for a little adventuring! Crazy cliffs that make you_______! Well if you want to see how I put it you’ll have to check out my new instagram page I just started just for Payneless Photograhy. Trust me, you’ll get a good laugh! Okay back to my point, so in our consultation I showed them varying locations around New Mexico and they decided on the Sandbluffs in the El Malpais. Such a heavenly location, and mixed with these three beauties my head almost exploded, no really almost E.X.P.L.O.D.E.D!!! Anytime is a good time to be photographed, but especially when you have big reasons to celebrate! Beauty #1 just graduated with her music degree from UNM and runs a studio and her oldest daughter is going off to college. Whohooo!SONY DSC
