I’m very happy to post these family photos taken at Memorial Park last month. I’ve known the Ramirez family for a long time, so I was excited when my friend Amanda told me that she wanted some family photos on her recent trip into El Paso.
She rounded up her boyfriend Danny along with her mother, sister Adriana and brother-in-law Fito with her new niece Alessa. It was a big group to shoot, but we made it as casual and laid-back as we could and I think that level of comfort shows in these photos. And Alessa is a natural in front of the camera, even giving us her best Gene Simmons face in a few shots.
The afternoon was blessed with great sunlight. The shoot took us up and down the hills of Memorial Park was complete with four fashionable outfit changes for Baby Alessa (including her sporty Air Jordan shoes). I think you’ll enjoy looking at these images as much as we enjoyed making them.
