Betsy Musselman for District Court Judge

It’s an honor to be the official photographer for Betsy Musselman’s campaign for district court judge! Although we did it in a blizzard, we still captured some great head-shots of this experienced candidate. I am already looking forward to our next shoot and documenting a few political events along the way!

Anniversary Sitting with Golden Aspen Leaves

Anniversary Sitting with Golden Aspen Leaves

These ladies were married five years ago, in a double wedding ceremony with their best friends (two males). Dan Jones was the officiant for this wedding and I was the photographer. The six of us had a wonderful time on the wedding hike and ceremony adventure. Dan and I named these people, “the fabulous four.” Fast forward to this anniversary shoot! Even though the guys were not interested in an anniversary shoot, we did get a pic of all four of these besties when we shot the ladies. Congratulations on five years to both of these couples. What an awesome team of friends!!

Family Portraits With Young Children

Family Portraits With Young Children

These kids were happy and excited about their autumn family photo session at their home in Taos! These October shoots with children are so fun as the cool air and crunchy leaves energizes the little ones and smiles come much easier than the warm months of summertime! The apples were presented as bribery for some smiles, and they complemented the autumn photos in every way.

Family Portraits in Autumn Setting

Family Portraits in Autumn Setting

This darling family was in Taos for their fall break and scheduled a family photo shoot during their vacation! Carson National Forest looked so perfect for this afternoon photo session with yellow grasses and leaves starting to come through the green. The children were excited with the brisk air and open area to play. We captured these smiles in 45 minutes which is the perfect amount of time for little ones before they lose attention. Cheers to the end of a wonderful summer and the start of a gorgeous autumn.

Vow Renewal at Ojo Caliente Labyrinth

Vow Renewal at Ojo Caliente Labyrinth

After 20 years, these two decided to renew their wedding vows!! The sunset ceremony took place in Ojo Caliente, NM at the spa’s labyrinth. The light was beautiful and the “bride” and “groom” were so relaxed since this was “just” a vow renewal (their words)! The wedding ceremony written by Dan Jones integrated the labyrinth into the words and was spoken as the couple walked the maze. These two showed their light attitude in a high five as they passed one another during their ceremonious walk. A beautiful evening in Ojo Caliente.

Double Rainbow Wedding in Taos

Double Rainbow Wedding in Taos

For a photographer, there is absolutely nothing like being in the right place at the right time! This couple was walking out to their wedding ceremony spot on the mesa when suddenly a rainbow appeared! This rainbow turned darker and more vivid and then, magically, the second rainbow manifests and shines! I can’t think of a better moment for this bride and groom. To have THESE wedding photos as your own…wow. Stunning.
