We love photographing women in the prime of their pregnancy! A prenatal shoot with Poetic Images only takes about 45 minutes and we get so many wonderful and memorable images! Some women want to show their bare belly, some do not, and either way is fine. We encourage mommy to bring along a few different maternity outfits, and a favorite baby onesie or booties for some more creative photographs; we always get those traditional baby bump shots as well. We shoot all maternity photos after 35 weeks so we can get the full scope of that beautiful, pregnant, round body. Look ahead and call us today schedule your third trimester photo session.
My favorite shoots are when I have the opportunity to capture the precious smiles of children. My first photography job was actually a “mall job” taking photographs of kids. My manager was at least 10 years younger than me and I had to wear a necktie, the experience was humiliating. However, I did learn some “tricks” to get the young ones to smile, and this knowledge has been totally invaluable to me.
This little guy was “text book” in responding to my smiling tricks. We documented these smiles in less than five minutes AND had a blast doing it! I’ve been photographing this little man since he was just days old. I love my job.
It never ceases to amazing me how many people travel to Taos to get married! It is not necessarily “easy” to get here. Usually people need to fly into Albuquerque and then rent a car to make the 2.5 hour drive to Taos which is located in Northern New Mexico. When there are guests attending the wedding celebrations, there is a lot of thought and preparation into the travel alone!
However I do believe that Taos must be the perfect place to get married! The weather here is perfect nearly every day. The people here are genuinely kind and helpful. The views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range and sagebrush filled mesas are inspiring and look as though they are out of a book. The architecture and “off the grid” living are unique and special.
So even if Taos is not a hop, skip, and jump away, the wonder of Taos is worth it. Consider Taos, New Mexico to be your destination wedding venue. Bring your guests or consider eloping off the beaten path, in a place that used to be referred to as the wild west.
This beautiful couple celebrated 70 years of marriage with a huge family reunion and a small portrait session. Poetic Images comes to your location to make your life easier. Give our studio a call and let’s set up your anniversary (or family, children, business, engagement, etc) portraits today!
Babies change so extremely fast! The difference in a baby’s face and body is so extreme from newborn, to three months, to six months, to 12 months. Additionally, at three months a baby holds his head up, at six months a baby is sitting up, at nine months standing up, at 12 months a baby is usually walking. These are the milestones that you want your photographer to capture during the 3/6/9/12 month baby portrait photo sessions. Many mothers schedule these photo shoots at their maternity sessions to make sure it’s in the calendar!
People who visit Angel Fire, Red River, Taos, and the rest of Northern New Mexico tend to LOVE it here. For this reason, we are consistently shooting family shoots while people are vacationing; people want to document the smiles and memories made in such a special place! These photo sessions happen (inside and outdoors) at all times of the year. The beautiful backgrounds (green grass, adobe architecture, grandiose mountains, running water, thick forest, white snow, etc) are plentiful and photogenic. A family shoot of up to 15 people only takes about one hour. We take unlimited poses during this time: group shots, individual family shots, grandma/grandpa with grandkids, cousins only, siblings only, etc!
This couple traveled from Texas to New Mexico to elope in Taos! The wedding ceremony took place at Touchstone Inn which is a green oasis in this Northern New Mexico desert land. The green grass, shade, and pleasant breeze kept all cool and comfortable in the early summer heat. What fun to walk around and shoot some romantics inside and outside this bed and breakfast, so many interesting rooms adorned with beautiful art!
These men picked the perfect spring day for a Taos wedding! The lush grass and full trees were an outstanding background for the outdoor, wedding ceremony. The gorgeous adobe inn and architecture was an outstanding prop for our photos and we had fun taking advantage of each nooks and cranny! A huge congratulations to this extremely beautiful couple!
Angel Fire residents, Airen and Nick, were married in Eagle Nest, NM! The union of this beautiful couple was at St. Mel’s Catholic Church which has green grass and mountain views. About 65 friends and family gathered for the reception which served a delicious buffet with New Mexican cuisine for dinner. The reception was held at Laguna Vista Lodge Historic Restaurant and Saloon which are just short walk down to main street from the church.
This match made in heaven traveled from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Taos, New Mexico to elope! The bride wore a red dress and silver shoes.
