*Playin' in the Park* Albuquerque Child Photographer* *Albuquerque Family Photography*

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.

~Plato~


I have known the husband of this precious family since he was born. Granted, I was only about three years old, but I do remember meeting him for the first time. I remember holding his grandma’s hand and being introduced to his swaddled self by his mom. I have numerous memories of playing around my grandma’s pond, playing He-Man, eating ding dongs at his grandma’s, and making mud pies with him. Good times. So, after all of these years, being able to watch him play with his own family made my heart light. So many years of memories connected by a history that goes back to lifelong best friends and neighbors...our respective grandmas. While editing these images, I couldn’t help but recognize family resemblances, which helped my heart to heal a bit, as his grandma, and my surrogate, passed away recently. Seeing Her shining through her great grand daughter’s eyes reinforced that she will continue to live on through her legacy of love. In memory and with all of my love and blessings.

    I also think these pictures are amazing. The way you got Taylor to do some of the poses were great.

    Awesome photography. Wish I could get 'em to sit still long enough to catch 'em with a camera.
