5 Year anniversary Photographs with Sam and Bob- Cloudcroft, New Mexico

What i realized doing this shoot. Anniversary photos are a wonderful way to celebrate. Yes we all love gifts, and sometimes the thought of getting our photograph taken... an immediate “i’m not good enough.. no.” But watching these two interact again made me love anniversary photos even more. 

what’s different after 5, 10, or more years.. we already had wedding photos. First, we change!-  like our hair, style etc. But what’s more is how we show love. Kisses on the head, how we hold hands, we become more comfortable because we go through hardships and new experiences. we hold one another differently and pick on each other in a new way because communication changes. 

Even when we feel like maybe it won’t be as romantic as wedding photos.. it’ll be real. More photographs to use for Christmas cards, and to print for home. Plus, what’s a better gift than something we can keep but spend time being close in the process?

Gearing up for my boudoir marathon on January 16th, here in Alamogordo and i wanted to show off the fabulous set I'd be using! i showed a few behind the scenes photos, but wanted to show you what you can do with a set! 

She had never had boudoir photographs taken, but i couldn't tell! she was relaxed and ready to pose! 

What I love about this set is how much it reminds me of the cosmopolitan hotel in vegas which is one of my favorites with the couple story chandelier and sparkles everywhere. So here's a few from my sparkly little studio!

Valentines Boudoir Indoor session- Alamogordo new Mexico

Good afternoon!- Excited I will be teaming up with Audrey of Serenity Salon for a full day Boudoir Marathon in Alamogordo New Mexico! a great gift for Valentines Day for your loved one, or even for yourself! I've had so many women get photographed not for anyone by themselves, so if you're interested, email or call 507-319-383 to grab a spot. 

Ladies, I know it can be a bit scary the first time stepping in front of the camera more vulnerable so here's a few things that have helped past clients:

1- bring a girlfriend to do it too! someone you can laugh with, feel comfortable with. 2- make it a gift for yourself. go shopping (but not too crazy, we can make all your fabulous clothes now look great!) and buy a new pair of heels, tights, underwear or bra. Or even that leather jacket you've been trying to find an excuse for! 3- it's okay to be nervous. I've done it too, so i know how scary it can be the first time, but i'm here to make you fierce so to help, know i'll be making it more comfortable for you. and we'll be giggling too. those laughs bring out that beautiful smile you have. (what to wear suggestions below!)

**these prices are for marathon only, if you're interested in another time and date i can send you all of the information and locations available 

You are altogether beautiful my darling; there is no flaw in you. Song of Songs 4:7
