Happy Birthday Broc!

This week was my son Broc's birthday. This image is about 9 months old, but thought I would share it anyhow. I plan to redo the 3 boys sessions soon, but we are waiting for it to warm up a tad.

The Zerkel Family

Meet this adorable family I had the pleasure of working with today! Mr. Peyton turned 1 today, as a matter of fact so we did not only a family session, but made sure to get shots of just him as well! There were so many great sneak peeks, I had to force myself to stick to Seven!

Heather and Tom: Thank you for sharing your family with me. You guys did a great job, and I look forward to working with you guys again!

James and Lori's Big Day...

Meet James and Lori, my couple from Saturday's wedding in the rose garden! What they didn't realize is that I had no idea the rose garden is around the library! What an awesome surprise! The ceremony was quite wonderful, the guests were very nice and fun to be around for the day, and Pelican's where the reception was held served great food! My bride is camera shy, so I opted to give them a preview of other areas as well as a couple of them! James and Lori thank you for allowing me to take part in your day! As always, it was my honor to be there and be such a valuable part to your wedding! Your family and friends were amazing and really kind to me, so thank you for that... it is very appreciated! :)

I knew if we were just outside the library, we had to go get some images in there! They all had a great time in here taking photos, laying on the ground, and being watched by all the patrons who were in the library. There were some great shots in there!

Albuquerque Rose Garden

On Saturday I had the privilege of photographing a Wedding at the Albuquerque Rose Garden! It was so beautiful, there were quite a few Roses and other flowers in bloom, and it was a great day and perfect spot for a wedding in October!

My Triplets

It's been awhile since I have posted my own girls on here, so thought I would share these! They were doing Ring Around the Rosie, and then decided on practicing their princess waves, rather than let mommy "photograph" them... now I need to work on some of the boys! Enjoy~

Pumpkin Patch...

I love taking my family to Pumpkin Patches... It is our yearly tradition, and with us being newer here, we were not sure where to go. I happened to find this place one day on the way to a photo shoot... so that is where we decided to take our kids! 2008 Galloping Grace Youth Ranch Pumpkin Patch.... Very nice, very friendly and such cute decor. My 6 kids ended up having a great time, you should check it out for yourselves if you get a chance!

Home From Las Vegas!

I thought I would post an image of myself beings that I am always behind the camera, noone ever gets to see me! Here is a shot of Kevin and I at the top of the Stratosphere!

As most of you know Kevin and I spent our 15 year Anniversary in Las Vegas. We had a great time, but missed our kids and were so ready to come home. Give me a few days to get back in the swing of things, and then I will post from there, as I have tons to share! :)
I have 2 anxious brides however, so I need to work on those...

Paying Tribute on 9-11

Kevin and I like many of you will never forget where we were 7 years ago, or what we were doing! I think all our lives were affected in one way or another....
For me we were so affected because Kevin is a Security Forces Cop. He said to me that morning, "Jode, I don't know when I'll be home tonight" (we were stationed at FE Warren) I remember being like Oh please... Do you know I did not see my husband for a week and half after that morning, and for the next 3 years He was gone more than he ever was in his whole career!
So while I do not downplay anyone elses jobs in the military, it opened my eyes as to why what Kevin does makes me so proud of him!

Taken at ground zero in December of 2007

Taken in New York, It reads World Trade Center. This was taken right next to ground zero, I took it from the opposite direction as to see all the lights and beauty on the other side.

Honoring so many men and women in the military who do what they do....

These images were taken at a Security Forces Cops' Memorial service...

Signature Wedding Poses! {Santa Fe, New Mexico Wedding Photographer}

My Signature Couple Pose!

My Signature Bridal Pose!
I have been asked quite a few times about and hired to take certain poses! These are the "top" two per say! I began these two poses with the help of Amanda, who saw something on my site and said "Can you do that with us, even thou we have no kids!" :) (flag pose with little boy and little girl under Promises tab)

We tried the poses, and Loved the outcome! They are now what I call my signature pose!
But not all my couples are shaped the same way, or can lay certain ways, so I looked up the definition of signature pose, and found out that It's ok, in fact encouraged to do it a tad bit different each time! This allows you, my couples, to do it how you wish!

Therefore I wanted to show you a preview of all the ways we can do these two poses! I love them! Then I am biased to my own work and clientele! Enjoy~ Let me also take a minute to say Thank You all for allowing me to make you lay on the ground, carpet or grass, on such a special day... If it's any conciliation the outcome is beautiful! :)

I enjoyed being with all their family and friends! And can't wait to show them all the images!
