Fall Light is Beautiful for Downtown Albuquerque Headshots

As I walk out on my back porch after dinner I can just feel the light change from late summer to fall.  I've been doing a lot of head shots for women lately here in Albuquerque.  The light is so gorgeous that when we shoot downtown, the urban background turns into a creamy backdrop and reflects beautiful diffused light over their skin.  Although I retouch every headshot image, the early autumn light kisses their cheeks so I really don't have to do too much to their skin.  This is my new favorite spot for female professional headshots in Albuquerque.  See what you think :)

Susan needed some business card photos for her new Real Estate company.  Her boss thought she was so pretty, he wants to make her the face of her company!! You might see these in a few new Real Estate ads sometime soon.

This young gal is a social media and SEO expert and needed a headshot for her website and business cards.  (She just got married the week before in AZ - can you tell she's still glowing!!!)

Elke is also a Realtor, and I loved this photo of her.  I loved the chunky necklace that she brought with her.  This last photo is of Susan again.  She brought along an old high school friend for moral support and he just bought a new Viper - so of course we had to take the obligatory hot rod photo!!  :)

Meet Baby Mia

Welcome to the world Baby Mia!

Kelly and her family are from Santa Fe, NM and ventured down to Albuquerque for a little adventure with brand new Mia and their 2 year old, Alexander. She brought her parents to help out with the older one and take him to the park after he rocked his part of the photoshoot. He was very excited to see that Baby Mia came out of mom's tummy and was now here to hold and cuddle with. He is a very loving and gentle older brother. After the photo shoot and the park, he told his grandparent's "This is the best day EVER!"

 I love little Mia's big lips and tiny fingers. She is so cute and slept through her entire shoot. Not too bad for an eventful Day 4 of her life! 

I found the wooden bowl at an antique store and the teal boucle scarf was her mom's.  We put her in a silver alloy  Nambe platter with her little scarf to keep her warm. Even when she woke up towards the end, she let me pose her little hands to be so cute.  She was so cute and posed for us like a little model.
