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)

A Father & His Two Beautiful Children {Albuquerque Family Photographer}

I loved spending the evening with these three in the foothills. The love and adoration they have for each other was evident. They’re great kids and blessed to have such a wonderful father. Thank you for the opportunity to capture your beautiful family! I hope these pictures make you smile for years to come!

Beautiful Fall Family of 8 {Albuquerque Family Photographer}

I have had the privilege of capturing this beautiful family of now 8 for the last several years. It has been a JOY to watch them grow! With one toddler, 3 young school age children and two teenagers one would think hold on to your shorts. These two compassionate, beautiful parents are doing something wayyyyy RIGHT- they have 6 of the most kind, respectful, sweet children. They both have full time careers as doctors- I marvel at how to they are not just pulling it off, but rockin it- brilliantly.

Three years ago we were pushing a vintage VW bus up the street- I captured one of my all time favorite family pictures. Two years ago our shoot was scheduled on what turned out to be one of the biggest snowstorms of the year. I wasn’t sure my car could make it to their house. I thought for sure they’d cancel. Thank goodness they didn’t- I ended up getting some of my favorite snowy shots ever. This year she asked if we could somehow incorporate chickens and a white bed with the 6 kids, I said yep! I LOVE this shoot and these people!

Thank you for inviting me to your home. Thank you for letting me play with you and putting up with all my silliness. Thank you for the opportunity, I am GRATEFUL! and thank you to the chicken who let me chase it around the yard, because it tried to fly out of the picture- you were my first and I will never forget you.

Btw- Mom submitted one of the pictures I took last year into a contest. It is a FINALIST for the COVER of an adopted children’s magazine! My fingers and toes are crossed!

I love all the great kid shots, those girls are absolutely beautiful and the boys cute as could be! Great shots!!

Jayme, thank you SO much for taking the time (and for your never-ending patience!) capturing our family! We will always cherish these photos. Just days after these were taken Brett’s beloved chicken got killed by a hawk :( Just goes to show how special and priceless photos really are. He’ll always have this picture with his buddy. Thanks again and thanks to everyone for the sweet comments!

Whoa! These pictures are incredible. Each picture tells a vivid story of a happy family that has lots of fun and enjoys each other’s company. These shots are incredible. Love the photos in the open field with the fall leaves.

Bright & Beautiful {Albuquerque Family Photographer}

I had the honor of shooting one my nearest and dearest. She’s like a sister to me and ohhh how I love her boys- big and small. This is the third year we’ve done a Fall Family shoot. I blessed by her love, support and friendship. I hope they make you smile!

sarahNovember 17, 2014 - 2:39 am

GORGEOUS!!! I want to hug them all! I love how sweet the boys look, mine look like that sometimes….so when i got to the couple alone i felt a sigh of relief for them. That was a great shot for the boys to have of their parents. One they will treasure for a lifetime. Nice work J. It just doesn’t get any better!

EmilyNovember 17, 2014 - 5:29 pm

Thank you thank you thank you, Jayme! My heart is bursting with happiness and every time I look at these photos I fall in love a little more. Every year I think it can’t get much better – and then the next year outdoes the one before. You are THE BEST (friend & photographer) and we love you!

TamaraNovember 17, 2014 - 7:01 pm

I agree GORGEOUS, your family just glows Emily, such a blessing. Love them!

JustinNovember 29, 2014 - 12:49 pm

Emily, you have a great family! The pictures of the boys smiling and laughing together will be timeless over the years.
Jayme…you’re so talented and these pictures really capture the spirit and story of a happy family. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful Fall Family {Albuquerque Family Photographer}

It was such a JOY to see this family and their sweet baby girl again! Last time I saw Mia she was days old. I spent one morning with a snuggly sleepy baby- this time I was chasing her around the Bosque. She has the cutest things to say, mellow disposition and big bright brown eyes. Hope you like your pictures as much as I do!

sarahNovember 17, 2014 - 2:42 am

QUE LINDA Mamacita!! Gorgeous family! I love the ones where they aren’t really looking at you, its a perfect intimate moment captured!

EmilyNovember 17, 2014 - 5:30 pm

The pop of yellow in the little girl’s sweater is perfection in these photos. Gorgeous!

TamaraNovember 17, 2014 - 7:05 pm

Oh my goodness, that little one is like sunshine, so sweet! Beautiful family!

Mia turns 5 {Albuquerque Children’s Photographer}

Most girls wait 9 months for their baby girl; I waited my whole life. Midnight 5 years ago, on her due date, I had my first contraction- 2 hours later I was holding her. Today she has wit beyond her years, an endless imagination, creativity that inspires me, determination that challenges me and exudes happiness. She says she wants to marry Hudson, be a baby doctor and princess when she grows up and still says I’m her best friend. Oh how I LOVE her!

sarahNovember 17, 2014 - 2:45 am

Oh how i love this baby girl, who looks like such a young lady. She is blessed with her Mama’s looks!! and TG her lively, brilliant personality! kisses and hugs angel!

EmilyNovember 17, 2014 - 5:31 pm

Mia is a timeless beauty and will no doubt grow up to have the effortless style of her Mama. Love you, little girl!
