El Paso Desert, Boho inspired and Teepee Photography | Alex and Liam

September 28 2015

When a mother is willing to almost go barefoot in the desert, all for a shoot, I couldn’t ask for more.
Love everything about how this mother & son / boho desert inspired shoot turned out. Beautiful weather + gorgeous family. Enjoy.






















El Paso Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session | Payton Love & Family

September 13 2015

“The littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts.” That is especially true as I photographed this amazing family as they joyfully welcomed their baby girl, Payton Love, into their family. Loved the bond and support they have for one another. Here is a sneak peak of the opportunity to document their family at their home. And how gorgeous is Payton’s nursery!? Love love.















Downtown El Paso / Nature Engagement Session | Danali & Justin

September 11 2015

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph these cute Austinites. They met on a night out, she caught his eye, he asked for her number and the rest is history. I loved how fun they were and how they kept me laughing the whole time. Hope you enjoy this sneak peak of their engagement session!










6 Months | Photos by Ale Saldana

September 6 2015

In a recent visit, my dear friend Ale stopped by my home to quickly drop off some files. Doing so, she candidly captured some photos of me in my new home. I love how simple & quiet they are, along with documenting my 6 month baby bump. Looking forward to meeting my lil Olive. I know once she’s here, my home will no longer be the quiet sanctuary I know now.

Thank you Ale for capturing these. Check out her work on her website.








El Paso Cute Rustic Photoshoot | The Alvarez Sisters | EL Paso Family Photographer

July 7 2015

I stumbled across this gallery, and I realized I had not blogged it yet! This year (what’s left of it) blogging my sessions will definitely be something I work on.

This session was dear to me, because as many of you know, I also have 3 sisters whom I love dearly. These gorgeous cuties definitely brought back good memories of that childhood bond and fun that begins at their age. The sunset was just a perfect compliment to their adorable matching outfits. Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed shooting them!

Meet Valeria

June 4 2015

Its been a while since my last ‘Meet Series” post, but this one was worth waiting for, if I do say so myself.

In this post, I interviewed and photographed Valeria, whom I’ve known for about 2 years now. I always knew I wanted to photograph Valeria, there is something about her that I  wanted to capture. Fortunately, she was all for it.

We wanted the photoshoot to be fun and relaxed, with no one but ourselves directing it. Valeria pulled it off with her gorgeous hair + makeup and cool outfits. Besides being photogenic, Valeria is a talented writer & amazing foosball player. You can catch her adventures at her blog (you wont regret it). As always, we did some Q&A that you can read below. Enjoy!



Full Name:
Valeria Alejandra Hernández

From/Current Location:
Born in El Paso, Texas, but raised in Cd. Juárez, Chihuahua. I moved to El Paso when I was 11.

Proofreader by day, professional unicorn tamer by night.

 Are you satisfied creatively? If so, why or why not?
I think being satisfied creatively is more of a never-ending journey or a repeating cycle, rather than a journey with a set destination. Even if I reached a point of complete creative satisfaction, I’d picture myself quickly moving on and wanting more or wanting to move on to the next thing that’ll make me feel creatively satisfied. So, yes and no. I say yes because I strive to find creative satisfaction daily (be it through my writing or even just through finding a really awesome picture on Tumblr and reblogging it), and no because I’m always searching for more.

Life motto?
I’m not sure if it counts as a life motto, but there’s a quote I like to remind myself to try to live by. It’s a short excerpt from Jack Kerouac’s book “On the Road” (one of my favorite books): “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like roman candles across the night.”

Who are your biggest influences?
Well, my parents obviously. I’m a lot of what I am because of them. And maybe Tyrion Lannister.

Currently listening to?
Right now, Lane 8’s “Hot as You Want.”

Current obsessions?
I’m currently obsessed with the TV series “Parks and Recreation.” I can’t stop watching. I’m also obsessed with
make up, puppies, my blog and Game of Thrones.

If you could travel anywhere tomorrow where would it be?
I would travel to India or Thailand. I’ve always been drawn to their respective culture and cuisine!

Last favorite movie you watched, and why?
I feel like I have so many favorite movies. It’s hard to just pick one, but I’ve watched “World War Z” like 20 times since I first saw it at the movie theater. It’s not even really a top, all-time favorite movie, but I can watch it over and over and over. I’m kind of intrigued and really drawn to anything that has to do with zombies, so I’d credit that for the over-indulgence I’ve had on that movie.

Advice to 16 year old you?
None of this is permanent. None of this is as big of a deal as everyone makes it out to be. Never stop dreaming big. Also, it’s not the reason or the depth of the fall that defines you, but rather the way you manage to climb yourself out of the pit.

April 13 2015

I was excited when I had the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous baby for a second time. Only 3 months had flown by since I last saw her and she had grown so much already! Loved how simple this shoot was, with the cute outfits her parents dressed her in. Sometimes its just about the little simple things. Looking forward to seeing this beauty get older and start walking!
