Simply Adorable ~ Farmington NM Photographer

This little guy melted my heart the second he came out of the car with a huge smile. He was so great the whole time, and talk about a smiler -- I just love his grin! By the way, mom and dad were pretty fun too. Thanks again for all the help with the gates, chairs, etc. You are a beautiful family!

Another Handsome Boy ~ Farmington NM Photographer

'Tis the year of the boy here at Amber Dawn Photography. Now I am not complaining cause they have all been the cutest little buggers, but I am just kind of surprised! I do have a few girlies that will be gracing the blog soon and some more adorable boys!

This is such a cute family. It was WINDY the day of our shoot, so we had to do mostly indoor shots, but they were so great about it and I just love how they adore their little boy. Take a look at those big, brown eyes and you can see why! And he has the most little expressive eyebrows!

We snuck out into the wind for a couple of shots and even manged to get one where everyone's hair was relatively still!
Thanks so much again!

Schedule/Pricing Update

New pricing is going into effect for 2010. Please email me at for session information and/or to request a new price sheet.

I am only booking newborn sessions for the remainder of this year. All other openings have been filled. Thanks for understanding! I am going to try to get caught up, move into my new home office, and spend a little time with the kiddos.

I truly appreciate all the wonderful families that have contacted me this year. THANK YOU!

Cuter by the Second ~ Farmington NM Photography

Nick has always been a little doll, but I swear he was just oozing cuteness this go-around. He was back for his 2-year photos -- my how time does fly. I was hoping to get some outdoor shots too, but the weather wasn't cooperating, so we had to have all our fun with the studio set-up.

I just love this one!

Love the hands in his pockets.

We snapped a couple in his Halloween costume too.

Gorgeousness! ~ Farmington NM Photographer

I'm behind on blogging (as well as everything else), but I'm trying to catch up. The hardest part about this session was choosing which pictures to share. This is a beautiful family and super easy to photograph. I was a little nervous about this one since Mom also does some photography, but it was a lot of fun and the little guy is beyond cute! Thank you all so much!

Quadruple the Fun ~ Farmington NM Photographer

No, not quadruplets -- not even a session with four kids. I generally try to have someone watch my own kiddos during my sessions so I can concentrate on the job at hand. Well, this day, no one was available. This session was with a friend's kiddos so I knew she would understand, but our kids are really close in age and chaos ensued. Somehow, we still managed to get a few pictures out of the whole deal.

Ryleigh and Chance have been here a couple times before. It is always so fun to see how they have changed from session to session. I don't ever notice the changes as much when I see them day to day as I do when editing a photo session. My kids had a blast with them.

I am going to start with my favorite one first:

Ryleigh was so cute and channelled her inner model and sassy self this year!

I figured Chance would love to sit in and "drive" the car, but . . . . . . . . not really. lol!!!

Love his beautiful blue eyes!
Wish we could have gotten a few more outdoor shots, but it was pretty windy the day of the shoot.

Thanks again you all, and thanks for being patient with my little helpers. I always have a great time with you!

Fall Colors

You've gotta love fall -- it makes for some pretty pictures! I got to meet up with this father & daughter for a couple family photos. It was a relaxing session for me (read "no chasing toddlers or making goofy faces & noises"), but Dad is going to have to put several bolts on the door because this girl is gorgeous! It was so nice to meet you both -- thanks again for contacting me.

Boy Oh Boy! ~ Farmington, NM Photography

I have been inundated with the cutest little boys all of the sudden! There are several more to come. These little guys were so sweet, but definitely all boy!

It was so nice to meet this family. We had beautiful fall weather, lots of pretty leaves, and even some deer watching them pose for family shots. Thanks so much for contacting me. The boys are both such cuties!

Now I realize that this is FAR from a technically correct photo, but I just loved how the photo shows how quick this little guy was.
