Extended Family Photo Session

Extended Family Photo Session

We were able to capture this Grandma and Grandpa with their kids and grandkids at this shoot in the beautiful, green forest in the Black Hills of South Dakota! The fun part of this shoot was doing the posing, smiling, and shots as fast as we could as the light kept growing darker and darker and the thunder sounding closer and closer! In 30 minutes we got photos of the entire group, headshots of all of the adults, the couples together, the kids together, each individual family, all of the children individually, and the grandparents with their grandchildren. That’s some fast shooting!!

9-Month-Old Baby Portraits

9-Month-Old Baby Portraits

This darling little chap was all smiles for his 9-month-old baby portraits! He was proud to show off his standing and walking skills and gave me smiles and laughter on queue. Brogan’s mom and dad stepped in so we were able to photograph the entire family as well as mom/baby, dad/baby, and of course the sweet baby all alone. We will capture this cutie’s next modeling session at his one year mark.

Portraits of Sisters

Portraits of Sisters

What a fun portrait session with two gorgeous little girls! Danielle and Natalie were so well-behaved and fun during this shoot! Although a lot of outfit changes on a baby is not recommended (it exhausts them!), Danielle did a great job modeling her baptismal dress, and two darling sundresses. I’ve been taking photos of Natalie since she was a week old (she’s four now) and is always a joy to photograph.

Winter Engagement Shoot for Spring Wedding

Winter Engagement Shoot for Spring Wedding

This couple is busy getting ready for their wedding on Easter weekend! Monique and Miguel will celebrate their wedding with a small ceremony and reception of close friends and family. This marriage will take place at Stella’s with dinner and drinks to follow. There is also talk about getting a limousine for the traditional drive (and lots of honking) around the Taos plaza!

Maternity Photos in Albuquerque’s Bosque

Maternity Photos in Albuquerque’s Bosque

This beautiful pregnant woman is due to have her baby in less than four weeks!
Our maternity shoot took place in Albuquerque’s bosque near the Rio Grande. The light was constantly changing as giant clouds came out of nowhere and the sun was still fighting to shine brilliantly! The bare native cottonwoods were photogenic and this soon-to-be mama did an awesome job navigating through the sicks and logs.
Congratulations in advance to Angelica and Jesus!

January Engagement Photo Session

January Engagement Photo Session

This was a VERY cold weekend in Taos and this couple did not complain one time! Despite the cold, we had a lot of fun getting to know one another during this engagement session. I will shoot this couple’s wedding in May in Santa Fe so an engagement shoot was a great way for us to work together prior to the big day!
