Gibbons Family & 3 Seniors | Farmington, NM Family Photographer


She reached out to me for family pictures because she has three seniors!!! Three!

She wanted professional pictures before everyone left for a mission and other life adventures.

The Gibbons Family

One spouse came from a highly dysfunctional home and the other came from the complete opposite – into a loving and devoted environment.

Because one came from dysfunction, this parent is one of the most devoted parents that I know of. She loves her foster children like her own and tries to make no distinction between the two. She provides the same kind of environment that her husband grew up in. She is just completely inspiring!

Harris Sibling Portrait | Zia Photography | Farmington, NM Photographer


Happy Friday!

My daughter kept asking me when I was going to take her and her siblings out for pictures. She saw me go out with clients every weekend. Well, I finally did it!

These are the pictures that make my heart soar!

And if you were stressed with your children during your portrait session, I was too:) My two-year-old didn’t have a good nap and was on the brink of a meltdown. My teenager disliked the clothes that I had bought him.

In the end, we had an enjoyable time and it was so worth taking them out. The kids loved playing at the Animas River Trail. Later, my son asked if he could wear his clothes to church (I guess the clothes weren’t so bad.).

At-Home Session | Farmington, NM Family Photographer


Yes, I do at-home sessions!

The sessions are definitely more personal. Of course, the pets are part of the family too. They are always welcome!

If I shoot in your home, I do need generous natural light because I am a natural light shooter.

If you are thinking about an at-home session, give me a call!

My Biggest Sale of the Year

My heart right there in that box!

You spend countless hours with them – helping with homework, kissing them goodbye before school, nursing, waking up for midnight feedings, making green smoothies that they refuse to eat, thinking about how you can become a better mother than you already are, brushing hair, nursing their scrapes and their tears, and the myriad of other motherly tasks.

Your heart yearns for an updated, beautiful family portrait that captures your greatest life’s work – your family.

Well, I have really good news! For the month of September, I am going to offer mini family portrait sessions. It is the only time of the year that I am going to offer these. They are half the price of my full family portrait session.


They include:

  • 20 minute sunset session – Since time is limited, I am going to focus on giving you 5 beautiful family portraits.
  • 5 high resolution digitals (I don’t offer these with my regular portrait session.)
  • Professional printed proofs of all your portraits

In addition to the basic package, I offer add-ons. They include:

  • Professional prints
  • Holiday cards sold in a set of 20

The session is $200. I’m only going to book these sessions on Friday and Saturday evenings so spaces are limited. Please call or text me to set up your mini family portrait session. 634-9495 Thanks for reading!

Jacob and Rian’s Family Session | Lion’s Wilderness Park | Farmington, NM Family Family Photographer


We had to cancel the session twice in March.

First, because of the crazy spring wind in New Mexico. Second, because the weather turned cold. On the scheduled day, it snowed.

But we prevailed and I’m so glad we did! Jacob and Rian have a beautiful family! I could tell that family meant everything to them. That was what I wanted to capture.

Thank you Jacob and Rian for letting me document your family, the love you share, and the wonderful stage of life that you all are in.
