A little sneak-peek on this Monday night!

Jackie is the mastermind behind Northwest New Mexico's chic new wedding boutique, Silk. She's been a long-time client, and has become a good friend. While at home last week, we had a fun family session with her little clan out on the sandstone. The kids never stopped moving, and I loved watching Jackie and Brian just roll with things. They've got a beautiful family and I loved spending the evening with them.

I'm determined to post some of the sessions that I've not blogged yet! It's been one of those things on my list of things to do (you all know I love my lists). Also included on that list is: go through all old baby clothes- toss, give, and keep; finish that quilt that I started, uh, 3 years ago; buy king-sized pillows; send that doggie-shampoo I found in the closet to my Mom............ you get the idea.  Well, look at me! I'm getting one thing taken care of... at least in part.

I photographed Tyson, Melinda and little man Collin in Oregon last fall, and the truth is, it turned out to be one of my very favorite sessions. Why, you ask? Because they behaved as if I was not there. I photographed them at the beach, doing beach-y things, as a family. Period. And I love how the session turned out.
Take a gander!

Love this session Rach! It's a beautiful thing when a family can just be themselves and let you do your thing....which you do beautifully :) Oh, and I think we share the same to-do list!
