Christmas Photo Sessions for Kids

Christmas Photo Sessions for Kids

This shoot may have made my personal record for “most poses in the shortest amount of time.” I think this entire Christmas session was done in under four minutes. The wind was bitter cold but that cloudy sky and beautiful snow were absolutely perfect! For a two-year-old, this little guy did an amazing job and was an impeccable young model!

December Taos Courthouse Wedding on Snowy Day

December Taos Courthouse Wedding on Snowy Day

This couple did not want anything fancy for their wedding so they decided to get married at the Taos County Courthouse. Judge Shannon officiated the casual wedding ceremony. The wedding vows and ring exchange was completed in less than five minutes, it took longer to get the marriage license! When we walked outside we were greeted with a winter snowstorm (there wasn’t a bit of snow on the ground when we entered the courthouse) which was a surprise and certainly good luck on a wedding day. Congratulations to Alida and Mark!

Destination Wedding: Taos!

Marianne said that she googled, “best place to have wedding” and El Monte Sagrado (a four diamond resort) in Taos, NM came up! So Marianne and Brian came were married at the El Monte, in Taos. The day was cloudy but the rain held off and the light was perfect. Marianne and Brian were all smiles as they tied the knot. This couple LOVED New Mexico and can’t wait to come back again!

Michelle and James could not have planned their destination wedding any better! Their small outdoor ceremony took place on the perfect day exhibiting the breathtaking fall foliage here in Taos, NM! The leaves on the ground were thick and crunchy and the vines crawling along the adobe were in the height of their saturation. Each tree variation offered a different color as their job was to advertise a wedding in autumn in Northern New Mexico!

Late Autumn in El Bosque

Late Autumn in El Bosque

I love taking advantage of Albuquerque’s Bosque when I am shooting down in The Duke City! El Bosque (the forest) is by the Rio Grande and much more lush than a lot of places in Albuquerque. The cottonwoods are both new and old, and give us both needed shade and beautiful lines in the backgrounds of our photos.
I had a wonderful time “playing” down by the river, especially with these kids. The hike with this family (and their dog) was fun and adventurous, an outstanding day out of the office!

Small Gay Wedding with Close Friends

Small Gay Wedding with Close Friends

This incredible couple came from Georgia to get married in Taos, NM! The wedding party was made up of four people, the best friends of the grooms. The shadows were long and the light was beautiful. The ceremony took place right before sunset and the glow on Taos’ mountains was outstanding.

Outdoor Senior Photo Session

I had so much fun “hanging out” with this gal as did this photo shoot. Not only does this Taos Academy senior attend AP classes (so she is receiving college credit) but she also works and babysits in her “free” time! Here’s to all of the Taos seniors who are graduating in 2015! What a lot of hard work and a great accomplishment!

Elopement at Outdoor Location in Northern New Mexico

Julie and Julian had a private and intimate ceremony at a location they stumbled upon while hiking outside of Taos. The cross and arch adorned this outdoor scene and a sign “heaven awaits” was a little walk away. The couple and their children took part in a sand ceremony together. The children were also included in the nuptials when the bride and groom recited vows to one another and to their kids as well.
