Red River Vacation Pictures

Red River Vacation Pictures

These snowy portraits came out perfect considering we started and finished this shoot in 33 minutes, a very amazing feat with a four year old and 2 year old in the freezing cold! This mom and dad were so calm and did an amazing job as they distracted their children enough to not feel the current 20 degree temperature; our photographer was in a parka, hat, and gloves!

This photo session was shot along the banks in Red River, New Mexico. We also took a quick trip to the bottom of the ski lift to capture a ray of sunshine. We love capturing the smiles of families on vacation. Red River is such a beautiful area and it’s so easy to find backgrounds that reflect the nature and mountainous beauty of Northern New Mexico.

Outdoors in Snowy Angel Fire

Outdoors in Snowy Angel Fire

This giant family came to celebrate New Year’s Day in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The day prior to this photo shoot the mountains received two feet of fresh snow, it was so fun to capture the snowy grounds, conifers, and aspens in these outdoor January family vacation portraits!
The priority to this family was to get a causal group photos of everyone… The darling buffalo plaid outfits were so coordinated and seasonal and the children were so cooperative, this was an easy feat. We also captured each individual family outside. These memories took less than an hour to create and the pictures are precious and will last forever. Thanks to this family for such a memorable time!

Angel Fire Winter Family Portraits

Cat and her family came to northern New Mexico from Texas for a snowy winter vacation, and it snowed and snowed! Beautiful conifers adorned the property surrounding their cabin and they were a gorgeous backdrop for these family portraits. Everyone suited up in their winter boots and we knocked this photo session out in 45 minutes which included a quick drive to capture the ski slopes in the background too. As soon as we were done with these pictures, the snow started up again. Cheers to a very snowy winter!!!

Engagement Shoot — With The Kids!

Engagement Shoot — With The Kids!

Sonya and Adam are going to be wed this summer in Questa and will have their wedding reception at the Red River Convention Center! After rescheduling a few times, we finally captured this family and engagement session on a calm morning of what was otherwise a windy spring day in April. We were definitely “on the move” as this darling little boy is full of energy and wants to RUN!! Of course these kids will be the flower girl and ring bearer for the July wedding.

This little fella came with the new year as he was born the first week of January! At one week old, this mister was a joy to work with. His first-time mama was sensitive to his needs and made him feel safe when he was a little unsure of the camera. We had this shoot scheduled before this baby was born. This is an easy shoot for mom because she doesn’t even need to be in the pictures!

Everyone put up with a little brisk January wind to get these darling family photos! This family came to Angel Fire from Texas to snowmobile in the New Mexico mountains (which wasn’t possible because of the warm winter we’ve had). Although we have had so little precipitation this season, it was a treat to have a small area with some patchy snow to add a little more “wintery” feeling to these fun family portraits!
