Memory Lane

I had so much fun shooting this family! I have known these guys as long as I can remember. In fact, I grew up (for the first several years of my life) on the same block as these two "kids". They had the old brown truck, pictured below, back then too. They moved to Texas and I've lived everywhere, but today, we were all back in Ajo and it was good to see them all together. It was fridged cold but they were such good sports. It was sweet because both of their grandmothers were there too.

Thank you so much for letting me share the afternoon with you guys and record some great memories for you. You guys are a big part of my childhood memories and it's great to see you living back in Ajo!
Much love to your sweet family!

Lolo, Los & JJ

I think it's pretty obvious that I really put my heart into what I do as a photographer. It's especially easy to love what you do when you love the people you're doing it for. That's the case with this sweet family. Christina has been like a member of our family for several years now. So of course, the two most special men in her life, automatically are special to me.

Another thing that made this shoot great is that they were up for anything I wanted to do. When I said, "Let's take your leather couch out to the desert", they said, "okay, whatever you think will be good, Jaime." I LOVE PEOPLE LIKE THAT!!!! We went out, shot and had a great time capturing this gorgeous family with my camera.

Christina, Carlos & JJ,
Thank you so much for letting me do your pictures! I loved every minute with you guys. I hope these pictures stir wonderful memories in your minds for years and years to come.
Much love,

Giving Thanks and Taking Pics

Today is a day to give thanks. And I am thankful I got to spend time with my family. We had an awesome Thanksgiving at my uncle's ranch in Chandler. My sweet little neice and I slipped away and we had a mini-photo shoot. This is the darling Makenzie. I could have shot with her all day long. And the cool part is she would have let me. She loves the camera and she's so stinkin' cute, which makes her my new BFF;)

Sis And Her Dog

This is my sister. Isn't she gorgeous? This is her sweet dog, Bert. We all were a little nervous when she got Bert because we've all made the mistake of getting a puppy and not realizing what we were getting into, at some point in our life. Bert, however, has turned out to be the best dog ever! We all love him and we're so glad Stace has him.

We did these pics for her Christmas cards this year. I'm so hoping I exceeded last year's Christmas card pics. Stacy went down to PetSmart and had Bert's photo taken with a she-Santa wearing purple nail polish. It was pretty bad. I hope these work well, although they probably won't give us as much laughter as last years'.
