Luxury and Comfort are the top priority!
From the moment you walk in we want you to feel at home. Come in, sit down, have a cup of tea (or coffee!) and browse our style guides as we look through the gowns, backdrops, blankets, props, and more to create your perfect session. We believe that these two words are the core of our brand and being catered to is one thing that never goes out of style. We always want our clients to feel relaxed and at home. Which means we are baby proofed and nothing breakable is within reach so you can relax!
What Full Service means to you:
What makes us unique in being a full service studio is the experience we are able to give you.
Starting with an in person consultation where we design your custom shoot, and ending with an in person review session where we walk through the images and help you design your home art and albums. In between those two steps you will have custom set design and prop choices, hair and make up available, custom designed products, exceptional quality prints and photo items, and personalized service throughout the whole experience.
Why is that important?
It means you don't have to do a thing but come to the studio. Which gives you more time with your little miracles!
A little about the people behind the lens
Hello! I am a mother to two amazing, if occasionally crazy, children. A boy and a girl who just light up my life. My husband and I plan to foster and adopt eventually, but not for some time.
I am a firm believer that motherhood is the most amazing, difficult, wonderful, trying, perfect, and exhausting job you could ever have. (Fatherhood too!) But I also believe it goes by way to fast. I have found that some things I swore I'd never forget have slowly been covered over with new and current memories and to do lists and activities.
It's part of what drives me as a photographer. To ensure that you can never forget the expression on your partners face when they first saw your child, to freeze that goofy toddler dance move forever. To capture one of the rare cuddly moments with your teenager. To celebrate you when you are at the closest to divine you will ever be....when you carry that miracle within you, I truly feel that you are the closest to God you could be.
I believe that all love should be celebrated and remembered.
I believe that women should be celebrated for the amazing beings we are! We are like a multi faceted jewel. We shine in so many different ways and too often we forget that we are a precious gem. We forget how important we really are. And we don't love on ourselves nearly enough.
I want to love on all the amazing women in this world, to show them their beauty and strength, and to help them celebrate the amazing miracles they have brought into this world! And yes, that means ALL moms, Birth, Adoptive, Surrogate....all moms walk this path of giving and deserve to be given back to.
. I firmly believe that all of us moms should #existinphotos. We are a huge part of our family's story, and our children are our legacy we leave behind.
As for my credentials, after initial studies in college as a photography major, I have studied further under Ana Brandt, Sue Bryce, and Kellie Brown three of the leading ladies in our industry. I am a fashion photography instructor at the college in Santa Fe, and run photography workshops here in Albuquerque as well as one on one mentoring.
Tina is very family oriented. In fact they get together as a family at least 3 times a week just for dinner and hanging out. She and her husband are blessed with two of the most beautiful and fun little girls and I can't wait to welcome their future children into the world too.
She has been with the studio for a few years now and is the master at baby wrapping and soothing!
Truly, I don't know where I'd be without her!
