I really enjoyed doing Santino's newborn photos so I was of course thrilled to do his half birthday. I went ahead with a Sesame Street theme for a few photos. Just look at his adorable little smile. You can't help but smile back. I don't think Oscar the grouch ever smiled but this little guy sure did. For this photo he changed into his special shirt that celebrated his half birthday. I put him in this little basket and rearranged the ballons a bit. He's such a cutie and
It had been six months so it was already time for Sedona's six month milestone shoot. I'm working with this little girls mama to take photos every 3 months to document her first year of life. Milestones are already priced really well at the price of my mini sessions when I run those. This means you can get a mini session price for a quick session really at any time. I'm also making a deal with parents to encourage them to do the newborn and 3-4 milestone shoots afterwards.
Jasmine was becoming a new teen and her mother wanted to celebrate with a photo session. We decided to do this session in San Jacinto Plaza in downtown El Paso. We did our first portion of the session with this lovely dress that had such beautiful color on it. Afterwards Jasmine switched clothes into something a little more casual so we could try some different poses. The plaza had just been decorated for the Christmas Holidays so we had some interesting backgrounds to work
I was asked to do a really special smash cake session this time. Not only would we do the traditional photos with the smash cake but mama wanted to do a milk bath session as well. I had done milk baths for adults already but this was a cute opportunity. The client sent me some photo examples of what she was looking for and I saw that she wanted a cupcake style cake. I knew I needed to find help for that so I contacted Sweetcakes to help me out with the cake. She also offe
I first met Klarriza when shooting some photos prior to her quinceanera. She was such a joy to work with and felt comfortable around the camera I was excited to hear I got to shoot her photos for her 17th birthday. I at first was thinking of multiple locations to take her for such a special occasion but the request was to do studio photos. I figured if we were going to do studio pictures I could get creative and do some silhouette type photos. I got some balloons and even t
I have done several sessions for Aamiyah in the past but this was our first fall session together. I couldn't wait to get a chance to photograph her in some of my favorite colors. We did this shoot up in Cloudcroft and even though it was a little chilly this sweet little gal was just so warm and cheerful in her photos. She always has such cute little outfits that I just love to photograph. She seemed to really enjoy this session and was curious about the camera too. At one
The first time I met this sweet little gal was for her newborn shoot. It was a special shoot and we wanted to continue capturing her growth in her first year. Since it was fall season we wanted to do a mix of fall, harvest, halloween etc. At three months she can't hold her head up so we had to prop her up in a special chair. She brought her cute little bunny outfit as well as her pea pod. For this shot I put down a nice orange plaid blanket and some pumpkins. Since sh
I had another opportunity to do a milestone session for very special little girl. Her mother told me that she had a kimono for her daughter and wanted a Japanese type feel to the photo session. I had some materials already that I had collected in the past and did a bit of shopping to pick up some missing pieces. I propped a light behind the custom backdrop to light it up a bit and I'm quite pleased with how it came out. It also helps to have such a cutie to take photos of.
Aamiyah was turning three and we have done shoots for her in the past in multiple mini sessions. Her mother wanted to do something special for her. This was now going to be our fourth session with Aamiyah so we wanted to do something special as well. Her mother wanted her to have a silver background and lots of balloons to throw and kick around. We were able to get in several shots of Aamiyah tossing around balloons and she seemed to enjoy it. We also hung up some stars an
