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)

4 beautiful girls and their Mommies {Albuquerque Family Photography}


Shortly before Christmas I was thrilled to capture these two beautiful sisters and their girls. We’ve known each other for a little over 6 years and I feel blessed to call them friends. It’s been a joy to watch their precious girls grow up right in front of my lens!

What a GREAT idea for a photo shoot! I love how you captured the love between sisters and cousins. It is a special love, for sure!

Adrienne & Santiago~ A stunning Santa Fe wedding {Albuquerque Wedding Photographer}


Adrienne and Santiago were married on a gorgeous fall day at the Santa Fe Cathedral with reception at The Eldorado Hotel. It was a joy and honor to be a part of their day~ capturing the devotion, friendship, laughter and love they share. The ceremony was rich in prayer and tradition. Following the ceremony, the bride’s parents drove the newlyweds around the plaza in her great grandfather’s truck with the horn honking, tourists taking pictures and bride and groom in the back waving. It was a riot! The bride’s father was MC at the reception. Guests had an absolute blast! There was a dance off, a marcha, and money dance. This family truly has FUN! I hope your sneak peek makes you smile reminding you of your beautiful day, the love you share and beginning of a beautiful life together!

Special THANKS for Justin for assisting me on the shoot!

I LOVE all your sweet comments and can’t tell you how much you make heart smile! Emily, I am SOOO HAPPY you like them…means everything! Craig, I’d be honored to shoot your beautiful family! Linda, you’re so sweet and they are blessed to such a kind, beautiful, graceful grandmother!!!

JustinNovember 25, 2013 - 2:43 pm

These are incredible photos of an incredible family. The boys’ blue eyes are so vivid. The family pictures portray a sweet happiness and peace. Once again, Jayme, you’ve really done an incredible job.

an amazing dad & his 4 beautiful children {Albuquerque Family Photographer}


This dad truly is an amazing father- He has a beautiful connection with all of his children. He understands who they are individually and brilliantly balances love/affection and direction. All 4 of the kids are absolutely gorgeous and were a joy to shoot. I adore them all! While I was editing I thought how seldom families get professional pictures once their children are a little older. I would say 95+% of all the shoots I do the child are under 4. Thank you for the opportunity and I hope these pictures make you smile for years to come!

JustinNovember 20, 2013 - 6:42 am

Okay…I may be a little biased but I think these are the BEST pictures you’ve ever taken! I really do not know what to say. Im blown away. Each picture makes me smile. I LOVE these kids and I LOVE the pictures!

EmilyNovember 20, 2013 - 2:59 pm

Jayme, these are beautiful! You can really tell how much they love each other and how much fun they have together. My favorites are all in black & white this time… the whole family on the log, the brother & sister in the field, and Dad & daughter together. A lot of special shots!

AshleeNovember 20, 2013 - 3:15 pm

Amazing photos! What a gorgeous family!

SarahNovember 21, 2013 - 5:53 am

You could be right Justin! It’s like the difference between cookies baked with love and damn good cookies.
