Family Portraits with Young Children

Family Portraits with Young Children

What fun to do a family photo shoot with these smiling, happy girls! These sisters, ages one and three, giggled and smiled at the perfect times. They set up their own candid photos and allowed me just to shoot as they sat and looked cute together. I think it’s amazing how much the older child looks like her mom, and how much the younger girl looks like her father…darling!
We love taking family photos! Schedule your photo session now while we still have wonderful summery backgrounds!

Dallas Family on Vacation in Taos

Dallas Family on Vacation in Taos

Even when the “kids” are grown up, it’s still a great time to have professional family portratis taken. This family was on vacation from Dallas, Texas and decided to have their family documented. This was an easy shoot. We met at these guys’ bed and breakfast and since we didn’t have tiny children, our shoot was done in 30 minutes. When you plan your Taos vacation, also plan and book a family photo session. This will capture the photo that gets missed most often, all of you together.

Penasco Family Portraits

Penasco Family Portraits

Family portraits are not only for when you have small children. Family portraits are to document the different stages your family goes through. Family portraits show how you grow and change as a family.
This family from Penasco, NM came to Taos for their outdoor family photo session. The portraits were not painful and I think it’s very possible that we all actually had fun!

Family Photos with 3-Year-Old And 3-Month-Old Children

Family Photos with 3-Year-Old And 3-Month-Old Children

When I commented to this mom about how her children were so well behaved, she laughed and mentioned that all the meltdowns came at home earlier in the day! To me, these children seemed perfect. We knocked out the photos in this shoot in less than 40 minutes, it was dreamy.

In a family shoot we try to get the entire group together, and break the shots down into whatever you prefer as well. For instance in this family shoot, we captured photographs of mom and dad together, photos of the kids together, and photos of all four family members together. Some people also want photos of the kids individually, and mom with the kids, and dad with the kids, etc.

To take a successful photo shoot with a baby involved, the photos with the baby need to be done within 45 minutes. After 45 minutes the baby will get tired and of course turns into a pumpkin as well (just making sure you are still reading)! The morning meltdowns and kids getting tired after 45 minutes is a small price to pay for a family photo session where the smiles are documented forever.

Family of Three, Soon to be Four!

Family of Three, Soon to be Four!

This family and maternity photo shoot was onsite at the expecting family’s home off of Blueberry Hill in central Taos. It was especially fun to take these pictures since Poetic Images photographed the little fella’s maternity shoot (when he was in utero) almost three years ago and have done one and two-year-old portraits of him as well! I am also looking forward to our already-scheduled three-month-old portrait shoot for “baby” who will be making an appearance in two weeks!

New Baby with 10 Grandparents!

New Baby with 10 Grandparents!

This new baby has more sets of grandparents and godparents than anyone I’ve ever met! Also, this new baby was the first grand/god child for all of these sets of grandparents. I don’t think this baby gets much attention at all, am I right?
What fun for all of these family members to meet for a vacation at a cabin in the Taos mountains and have family portraits taken during this time too! This was the little guy’s first portrait session, and he did a knockout job! Congratulations to all of these grandparents, and a very lucky (and cute) baby too!
