I am Karlie! I am a Wedding and portrait photographer in New Mexico. This is that awkward part of the page where I talk about myself (which I don't like to do lol). I took my photography to the next level after having my second child. It has been the most rewarding job I could ever dream of. I get to meet people and hear about their journey and love for each other everyday. Which if you've met me I am all about the feeling and emotion.

I am a mama bear to two wild kids and one on the way. London my smart fire cracker little girl who is 7 and Sebastian my sweet sensitive boy who is 4. If I'm not taking photos you can find me hanging with the cubs and da hubs. I am happily married to my heart throb crush, going on 5 years now! I love my family more than anything in the world just as I'm sure you do too! Which is why I love capturing those memories where you can look back on and remember the sights, the sounds and the feeling from that day. Let me help you remember a piece of the past that will last a life time.

I wanted to make the official announcement I am going on Maternity Leave January 1st-March 31st!

What does that mean?

I am still working editing sessions. Come January we will be about 1 month away from baby girl's due date – and my goal is to get as much done ahead of time so that when she arrives, I can simply rest, relax, and enjoy this new little member of our family, all while my business still keeps on chugging along! That’s the beauty of working for myself and being able to prep things ahead of time!

For Weddings..

I am still actively booking weddings for 2021 + 2022!

My calendar is beginning to fill up for 2021 & the 2022 inquiries are beginning to come in as well! It’s so exciting! So if you are newly engaged & looking for a wedding photographer – I would still love to chat with you!! Depending on how close you contact me to my due date (and after baby girl is born), we might not be able to meet in person as quickly as is my normal practice, but we’ll work it out, I promise! I already have so many fabulous weddings booked for 2021– but I definitely have room for a few more! Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you are in need of a wedding photographer! I’m seriously so excited to chat with you!

For Portraits..

I am no longer booking any portrait sessions for the remainder of the year 2020. It’s pretty chilly outside to be out shooting portraits as it is! I also will not be booking any portrait sessions in January, February and March. With winter settling into Albuquerque, it’s not really prime photography season anyway. By April and with springtime rolling back in, I’ll be all rested up from having a baby in late Jan, Early Feb & will be ready to get back into shooting on a regular basis!

If you find yourself in need of a portrait session over the next 3-4 months & are simply not sure who to turn to with me being “off”, shoot me a quick note! I’d love to refer you to one of my incredible photographer friends!!

So, thank you so much! Thank you for your love & support. Thank you for your understanding. Thank you for everything. This business would be absolutely nothing if it wasn’t for you guys – so, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much!


“Karlie did my maternity photos and our holiday family pictures. We were so pleased with the shots she captured. We look very natural and comfortable—she captured the real us.
She is very professional and easy to work with. She has a creative eye, but is also open to working with you if there are particular poses or shots you want to try. She does excellent editing—the colors pop and the lighting looks brilliant.
We will not use anyone else. She is now who we refer to as “our photographer.””

“Just had our first (of many I’m sure) sessions with Karlie and omg. She was so amazing and patient with the kids. I think my stepdaughter may be one giant mosquito bite and my stepson has enough energy for 6 kids but she didn’t skip a beat. I’m sure these photos are going to be amazing and I can’t wait to see them!”

“Most Talented photographer by far. I’ve worked with tons. In my personal experience modeling and with family pictures she is supremely talented. Book her now! Just amazing.”
