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.

18 Month Professional Children’s Portrait

18 Month Professional Children’s Portrait

This little guy is a “regular” as I have done portraits of him at 9 months and as a newborn! Rivers warmed up to the camera quite quickly and after a few poses decided he’d rather explore instead. It was fun to capture Rivers as he was enjoying the outdoors, as an 18 month old should! I’m already looking forward to the next shoot I have with this sweet boy!

Gay Wedding at Local Four Diamond Resort

Gay Wedding at Local Four Diamond Resort

Joe and Dexter’s outdoor, April wedding took place in El Monte Sagrado’s Sacred Circle. The Sacred Circle was blessed by many different religious leaders and many weddings at El Monte take place in this spiritual space. Dexter and Joe’s wedding ceremony was officiated by Dan Jones, Taos’ leading (and El Monte’s premier) wedding officiant. The ceremony was fifteen minutes long with loving readings from the grooms’ son and Dexter’s mother. Per usual, Dan’s words bestowed emotion on all and no one left with a dry eye. Congratulations to Dexter and Joe!

Senior Photos for Vista Grande Student

Senior Photos for Vista Grande Student

A senior sitting only takes about an hour and a half and is usually super-fun for your kid! Of course most seniors are a little nervous at first, but after about ten minutes they are chatty and excited they are getting their photos taken.
Being a high school senior is a milestone and I love to document this special time in your child’s life! I encourage seniors to bring up to six different outfits and any “props” they would also like to use!

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

This Taos Country Club wedding was one I photographed several (six?) years ago! I wanted to post these pictures because it is a good reminder of how unpredictable the weather is here in Northern New Mexico!

When I started to photograph this bride and groom prior to the wedding ceremony, the Sangre de Cristo mountain range was barely visible, but it WAS visible. After the wedding we had a completely white/grey backdrop as the snow storm had moved into Taos and was making it’s way out to the country club! And, then it started snowing…
Five hours later the golf club’s green grass was a blanket of snow. The bride and groom were still in good spirits and even stepped outside for a few more memorable wedding images.
