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.
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.
I photographed this family at the popular sculpture gallery and gardens, Lumina, just off of the Ski Valley Road outside of Taos. We did this on location family photo session at the end of the summer and my camera picked up all of the rich earth tones of greens and browns that New Mexico generously offers during this season. These guys were incredibly easy to photograph with their nice smiles and beautiful personalities.
