Las Cuces PhotographerHi there! So glad you found me! My name is Lisa and I am the artist behind Lisa’s Design Studio. I am an on location photographer and graphic designer based in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I specialize in weddings, high school seniors, children/newborns, family, couples, boudoir and real estate photography.

I graduated in 2007 from NMSU with a degree in Digital Graphics Technology. Soon after, I quickly realized I was itching for something more. Photography was always a hobby of mine, however I never imagined it would soon be my dream come true. My husband plays a huge role in my life as he is my number one supporter. He purchased my first DSLR camera back in 2010 and really pushed me to chase my dream of one day owning my own business. A year later, in August of 2011 I launched Lisa’s Design Studio. Since then, I have been so blessed to have the amazing clients and fans that I do. I could not ask for more. I have the biggest support system a girl could ever ask for!

I am a mom to two beautiful children who are my world. An amazing daughter and son. I have two pups and a kitty too! I am a very laid back kind of gal who enjoys the little things. I am an adventurer. I love all things travel related. I love camping and road tripping with my family, scrap booking, movies, oh and chocolate! German chocolate to be exact. I am a country music lover, smashed penny collector, and former high school basketball player. Aside from photography and design, I am an Associate Broker. I have been in the Real Estate field doing many different things for over 10 years. It’s what you would call my “day” job and I love it!


Rainy days are my absolute favorite kind of days. I also love the gorgeous light our sunsets in New Mexico bring. People ask what time of day I photograph. You will typically always hear me say “an hour before sunset”. The light at that time is like none other.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Take a look through my portfolio to get a better feel of my work. Also, stop on by my Facebook and Instagram page and show some love there as well. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask. Hope to chat with you soon!
