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 😉

Madrid New Mexico ~ Josh ~ Senior Photos

The year was 1987 I was about 4 years old and his mom was about 8 years old, we were neighbors in Gallup. Her house was like nothing my 4 year old eyes had ever seen; butterfly collections, art and lots of wooden tribal things from their living in Papua New Guinea. I bet if I walked back into that house today just as it was it would be neat-o to my 32 year old eyes too. Now were both all grown up with kids of our own. I was laughing on the phone with his mom while were doing their print order saying “if you had told us years ago that when we got older I’d take your sons high school senior pictures we’d of thought you were loco!” Fast forward 28 years and bam here we are! This family is awesome, and I have enjoyed so much taking their photos over the past few years. It was a great time taking this guys photos in Madrid New Mexico I’m glad they were up for meeting early since this place gets really busy later in the day.

I ❤ the Tario family.
