Engaged Couple from Taos, NM

Engaged Couple from Taos, NM

Vanessa and Geno are engaged to be married in two weeks! We had a lot of fun during this photo shoot. Geno is funny and Vanessa just egged him on…definitely a match made in heaven! Many times I encourage my shoots to bring a change of clothing. This was the first time (EVER!) that I’ve had the groom bring a change of outfits but not the bride. That gave all of us a good chuckle! Many congrats (two weeks early) to Vanessa and Geno!

Vow Renewal Ceremony in Taos, NM

Vow Renewal Ceremony in Taos, NM

Laura and David tied the knot 12 years ago…and reaffirmed their vows to one another last weekend. A vow renewal is the perfect way to celebrate your marriage, and to reaffirm your commitment to each other.
Laura and David traveled to Taos to have their vow renewal ceremony at popular bed and breakfast, Hacienda del Sol. The “bride” and “groom” purchased one of the Hacienda’s wedding elopement packages that includes a small locally made wedding cake, professional flowers, a professional photographer (that’s us!), a wedding officiant, and two witnesses!

Baby’s Outdoor Photo Adventure

Baby’s Outdoor Photo Adventure

This was Noah’s very first professional photo sitting, and he was a model baby!! He smiled when we asked…over and over again! This six-month-old baby also showed his big-boy skills of sitting up, eating his fingers, and grabbing the grass. So cute!!
Babies change so rapidly during their first 12 months of life. Be sure to schedule your 3, 6, 9, and 12 month photo shoots for your baby when they are born, this way you have these appointments in your calendar in advance! Poetic Images is here to document these big, important, and quick changes!

Penasco High School Senior Portraits

Penasco High School Senior Portraits

Another awesome senior shoot with a Penasco High School senior! Adam was a great model and didn’t complain once about the cold and wind! We walked around The Overland Sheepskin Company and took photos for almost an hour. We were able to get about 100 fantastic shots with many of them being completely different poses. Congratulations to Adam and his upcoming graduation!

Taos High School Senior Yearbook Photos

Taos High School Senior Yearbook Photos

In the summer of 2015, Hayden and I began his senior photo shoot at the Taos County Fair; we captured this senior with his 4H animals. He wanted to do an additional shoot later in the winter, when there was snow on the ground.
I called Hayden in January to see if he wanted to schedule his “part II” senior session. OF COURSE he had broken his leg the day before while skiing! He decided to do the shoot later in the spring after his cast was gone. In these images Hayden is wearing a brace on his knee. Although Hayden was still on crutches, we did most of the shoot without them. The pictures came out great.
Here’s to Hayden and the entire class of 2016, and the unexpected surprises your senior year can bring!

Valentine’s Day Wedding in Taos, NM

Valentine’s Day Wedding in Taos, NM

The air was crisp and cool but we still had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this Valentine’s Day wedding outside in February! This bride and groom came to Taos from Albuquerque to elope (they brought a few good friends for support). They choose for their wedding to be held on the staircase at El Monte Sagrado in Taos. They choose the staircase so they could see all of their friends perfectly during their wedding ceremony. Congratulations to Martha and Ted!
