Thank you for stopping by my page. I am first and foremost a child of the King! After that, I'm a daughter, wife, mom, sister, friend and photographer. I have been a photographer for almost 10 years. I like to think of this world as my studio. Finding the perfect location for capturing your intimate memories is part of my art behind my images. No matter the occasion in your life, I hope to be able to tell your story.

I met my husband online and 16 years later here we are, still madly in love. I have two beautiful fun loving kids, they truly are the light of my life. I recently took on the role as a teacher, meaning my kids are homeschooled! Not sure how long that'll last, but I'm going to give it a go. I am half Dominicana (my mom is Dominican) and I thank my mom for making me a proud owner of my own piece of land in the Dominican Republic! I absolutely love to travel. We try to take the kids on a vacation every year. Our go to places, obviously the Dominican and Mexico. We love the Caribbean but I plan to travel to Europe one day. I love to eat out, food is too good to be on a diet, ha ha! I am also a "pk", that's "preachers kid". I am the middle child, but I don't have the middle child syndrome, because I was the first girl. My sisters and my mom are my best friends. I was once stung by a scorpion and went blind for 2 days from the venom, scary!!!
I love the Lord and I love my family more than anything in this world. I thank God for giving me this beautiful life, HE has been so good to me.
Lara is my side-kick, she keeps me hydrated, walks dogs, holds bags, lights, gear, etc. She plays with kids, holds babies and is THE best travel partner, She runs all errands during wedding days. She makes me laugh and keeps me sane. What more can I say, I love this girl, she makes wedding days and shoots so much fun! Oh ya....did I mention she is my sister, even better, right, my built in best friend!
Lara is a fun loving mom of 3 kids and has been married to the love of her life for 16 years. She is a newly certified instructor for Defined Fitness in Albuquerque. She loves to chew gum loudly (ha ha) and loves to talk talk talk! She, along with my mom and other sister are my best friends! Love her to death!
Chenoa is first and foremost, my friend. She is also a BOSS babe of her own thriving photography business. Chenoa has been a photographer for over 10 years and has a meticulous eye for photography. She has a spunk like no other. Her tender spirit and kind heart are hard to find in a person these days. She's a loyal friend and an kick-butt side-kick! We met through our husbands, who used to work together. We have done several projects together and have created magic, so I recently asked her to join my team and she accepted! I am so excited to have her by my side for future adventures. This girl laughs a lot and knows how to have fun. I love having her along for car rides, because she keeps me awake with all her interesting stories, ha ha! Her favorite colors are grey and purple, she loves the band Reliant K and Magic Giants. She loves sushi, but loves God and her family even more. Welcome Chenoa to Lavel Marie Photography!
