jaymecharissaphotography bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog! I'm Jayme! I've always been an artist at heart. Five years ago I started capturing the precious moments and memories in my little one's lives- firsts, who they are, and what makes them beautiful. They are my inspiration behind by passion for photography. Photography is my art. I see beauty in the bonds, expressions, details, and love people share. I seek to capture those moments in every picture I take, moments that will last a lifetime. I am a custom modern photographer in Albuquerque, NM. I shoot on location using natural light. I LOVE comments and please contact me with any questions! (Photo taken by Brianna Saban)

sweet pea turns ONE! {Albuquerque Children’s Photographer}

Before I rang the door bell…I looked down and saw the most precious little girl with ringlet curls, big brown eyes, and I smile I couldn’t wait to capture! She just turned one and showed me throughout the shoot. Mom had the most adorable outfits and hair flowers laid out…loved Mom’s style! Big brother was awesome! He broke out songs and seemed to know all the how to get sister to smile tricks. I learned we have something in common- his favorite cartoon is also Sponge Bob. He’s in 1st grade and said it’s a breeze…if only all kids thought that way. As I was editing pictures…I kept thinking how does Mom not have a single wrinkle on her entire face? Anyway- It was a perfect warm sunny afternoon…and I loved spending it with this sweet family!

Gorgeous “D” Family {Albuquerque Family Photographer}

I meet the most awesome families, but seriously I LOVE LOVE LOVE this family! I meet the older son, Cooper, in tighty whities…right up my ally with two boys of my own.  That little boy needs to be a model, I can see him now in magazines!  Besides being smokin hot, the mom was super easy going. The Dad wasn’t there when I arrived.  He went to get mom a necklace for my shoot…I thought HOW SWEET is he?!?! The baby, Beckett, is 8 weeks of pure joy and chub. Btw- Don’t you love that name!  I could have just held him the entire shoot. Ok, so DAD painted the murals on both boys rooms, seriously impressive. After playing inside for a while, we went out to play. Cooper laughed at all my dumb jokes and told me some of his own. Beckett, the baby, was a champ for the entire 2+ hour shoot. The love, the cowboy boots, the bonds, the playfulness, how natural they were is everything I love about photography! I hope I captured the love you two have for each other and your beautiful boys. You are blessed! xoxo

precious baby dominic {Albuquerque Newborn Photographer}

I LOVE this family! I did maternity pictures with the whole family…You can click HERE to see them. We met in church and remember the day Momma told me she was pregnant…every Sunday I’d smile when I saw her. This angel patiently waited to make his debut into the world- Momma was more than a WEEK overdue. She managed to deliver 9 pounds 4 ounces all natural. With two boys and two girls under 7, they have their hands full but couldn’t feel more blessed and complete. Welcome to the world little angel…it’s a little brighter with you here! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

MitchelJanuary 26, 2012 - 9:24 pm

sarahFebruary 6, 2012 - 7:32 pm

JenFebruary 28, 2012 - 8:19 am
