Mommy and Me | New Mexico Family Photographer | Artesia, New Mexico

I loved this sunrise session so much because it was full of cuddles! However, for this morning they weren’t optional! I forgot how cold a March morning can be in Southeast NM. Brrrr…. You can’t tell here but in between takes these girls were in jackets and blankets. But this session just shows how weather can provide an opportunity for genuine moments to be captured! I hardly even reschedule a shoot for weather. Pouring rain and lightening would be the only reason. But wind, cold, cloudy, a little sprinkle, these elements can all create such a fun atmosphere for photos!

And now let me talk a little bit about this sweet family! I met Mandi through church and work and have always enjoyed her and her girls so I was so excited to capture their connection! These girls love their mama and let me tell you, Mandi is an awesome mom! She wants the best for her girls. Motherhood is never easy, and doing it on your own deserves some recognition and praise! Keep doing what you are doing mama! These girls are so blessed by you!

We had a ton of laughs and giggles! So much love in this family, it didn’t take long to get comfortable and just have some fun!
