I first met Nicole when she reached out to me a few months ago, looking for a photographer who could do a family portrait session while the whole family was together over Christmas as a gift to her Mother-in-Law. Luckily, I had availability that met her needs, because this sweet family was coming together from all across the country for the first time in two years!

Nicole and her sweet husband were flying in from New York City, her parents-in-law were coming in from Ohio, and her sweet sister-in-law and her husband are currently living in New Mexico. None had ever been here before, and they wanted to commemorate the holiday with a family portrait session.

While it was cold and we hurried to get through the main group shots so that the littles could get re-bundled and put back in the car to stay warm, it was still a magical evening to be at Elena Gallegos Open Space Area! I'm so glad this sweet family was willing to put up with the cold temperatures and work with me, because it really paid off! And, I hope that it doesn't take them another two years to come together again. Thanks guys!
