The Gaines Family (Albuquerque Family Photographer)

This past Sunday my mother-in-law had a seemingly great idea to take some photos in an antique store of the family before they moved. I have to admit the moment when I walked into the store I was concerned. The store was filled to the brim with stuff, mind you really cool neat antique things, but none the less filled. Not to mention the poor lighting from a photographers perspective and a few ceilings made of wood...meaning no reflecting flash to try to get some natural looking light. Phew.

But as with all things in my life when I feel like something is a complete disaster God intervenes and makes something beautiful. Another testimony that my photography is never something I claim as my own doing but God's gifting and blessings through me.

I do have to say that the store was really neat and would recommend it to any antique-goer. Here's a few photos from the store.


I thought this was pretty cute. :)

Now for the family pics.

Dress-up seemed fitting in a store like this.

Fun Business Cards (Albuquerque Graphic Designer)

I know its been a while, but I have some business cards I designed today for my mother-in-law to share with you! Sadly they are moving to NE, but all the more reason to travel for Josh and I!

So we tried for European style business cards but well printers and tiny backgrounds aren't friends so I made some larger ones with the ornate background. :)
