David needed portraits for his “I’m One!” birthday invitations. Children’s photography involves working extremely fast as young children have very short attention spans and get tired very easily. David is a very serious little boy and had very little patience with me or his mom and dad after about 30 minutes; however, the first 30 minutes were awesome. David has a wonderful giggle and enjoys sitting and crawling in the green grass.
Carla and Fermin had a full Catholic ceremony when they were wed at Holy Trinity Parish in the small village of Arroyo Seco outside of Taos, NM. They celebrated their wedding reception at the Sagebrush Hotel and Convention Center in Los Ranchos de Taos. While driving from the ceremony to the reception site, we stopped to take some photos of the entire wedding party, and some romantics of Carla and Fermin, with beautiful Taos Mountain adorning background. As usual, the New Mexico sky let itself so beautifully to these wedding photographs.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is the cathedral right off of the plaza in Taos, NM. This church is special to the groom, Jose, because he and his father constructed all of the woodwork for the church, including the altar. Angelina and Jose had a huge wedding ceremony and reception as they were both born and raised in the area (Angelina from Questa, Jose from Taos). We had amazing light at the end of the night when we stepped outside to photograph some romantics at the Sagebrush Convention Center.
This wedding was at the country club in Valle Escondido, a golfing community in Taos Canyon. The beautiful bride, Carly, loves flowers as she grew up helping her mom run The Enchanted Florist here in Taos, NM. Exquisite flowers adorned the ceremony aisles and the altar. Carly had an orchid in her hair and Adam had a matching orchid boutineer on his tuxedo.
Kiara and her mommy took photos to send to Kiara’s daddy in Iraq. This one-year-old’s portrait session was exciting as Kiara is crawling and loves to be on the move! I love a challenge and children’s portraits present challenges constantly. I take pride in the photos that come out of a tricky shoot and love the memories that are created during the shoot, and also captured in a timeless photograph.
