"That is the best - to laugh with someone because you both think the same things are funny"
~Gloria Vanderbilt~

There is something contagious about the laughter of a child. Get two to belly laugh together, and everyone near can't help but giggle as well. This shoot was great fun simply because these kids are so amusing to play with. From jumping in leaf piles to playing with Buzz Light year we all had a blast just being kids (for me, turning into one for awhile). I feel so lucky that these two beings are in my life...not only in front of my camera, but also because they call me Auntie. Love you guys!

*Full Circle*Albuquerque, NM Children Photographer*

A child reminds us that playtime is an essential part of our daily routine.

It is amazing and so fun for me to see where people's lives have led them, and I am grateful that this shoot gave me that opportunity. This little guy's parents and I have known each other since our childhoods. We went through all of our schooling together, and so, it was truly fitting that we ended up doing this session at our old Elementary school. Such a great time to be back there, reminiscing about school yard fights, games that were played, and our old janitor, Ralph. Too funny. Thanks M & L for the memories, and for sharing your little man with me. This session allowed me to reflect on years past, and more hold my childhood close once again. Blessings!

*Fall Frolic*Albuquerque, NM Children's Photographer*

Leaves in the autumn came tumbling down, Scarlet and yellow, russet and brown, Leaves in the garden were swept in a heap, Trees were undressing ready for sleep.

I met this beautiful, little girly this past weekend at the photo session her mom won from my facebook/blog contest! Congrats again, N! We had a great time playing in the leaves and talking about five year old life. What a beautiful time of year for sure....take some time to enjoy these crisp, cool days, and the beauty of fall's canvas. Blessings!

*Sweet little Jelly Bean* Albuquerque, NM Baby Photographer*

Life is a wondrous gift tied with ribbons of laughter, love, and joy.

When this little Jelly Bean's mom contacted me to shoot her first pictures I was so excited. But, when she told me that they would be her first Christmas pictures, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, and got even more thrilled! What could be better....babies and holidays, two of my favorite things! Blessings!

*Fall Fun*Algodones, NM* Children's Photographer*

Our children teach us what life is all about.
~Angela Schwindt~

It's so easy to forget how fun it is to play kitties, roll in the leaves, make monster faces, go on rock hunts, climb on tractors, and be a cowboy all in an hour's time! I had so much fun playing and imagining with each of these adorable kids, that I really have to thank them for helping me feel like a child again on this beautiful, fall afternoon.

*Sweet as Sugar* Sneak Peek* Phoenix Children travel Photographer*

"A sister is our first roommate, our first playmate, and our first best friend."
~Author Unknown~

Could these two sisters be any sweeter? Recently, I went to Phoenix for a U2 concert, and was lucky to be able to shoot these adorable, curly haired, cuties as well. We had so much fun playing in fountains, with bubbles, yelling at the top of our lungs, singing songs, sharing lots of giggles, and exploring the resort I was staying at. Sweet kiddos like these two, fill my heart with such happiness, and bring abundant joy to my work. Thanks M family, for sharing your girls with me, and for introducing me to some new, little friends. Blessings!
