Local Musician and Songwriter

Local Musician and Songwriter

January was so warm that we shot portraits outside throughout the entire month. The natural brownish earth tones are so beautiful in the natural light and it’s rare that we can use these backgrounds without shooting in the cold! This shoot was taken for a local musician and songwriter who is creating a website. It was so fun to do head shots with the guitar for a prop instead of just the usual chest up shots.
Call Poetic Images by Deanna for your local business photography needs. We make the shoot fun and we take outstanding photographs…you’ll be pleased.

Engagement Photography Session with Snow!

Engagement Photography Session with Snow!

These two are at school in UNM in Albuquerque and will get married up in Northern New Mexico right on the river! We started this shoot at one location and drove less than four miles to another location. The photos look like they are in completely different areas with the warm sunshine in some, and cold shad and snow in the others. We were so lucky to have a little bit of snow for this shoot, the first snow portraits I’ve taken this winter, and it’s January!!

First Newborn Sitting of 2018

First Newborn Sitting of 2018

This little fella came with the new year as he was born the first week of January! At one week old, this mister was a joy to work with. His first-time mama was sensitive to his needs and made him feel safe when he was a little unsure of the camera. We had this shoot scheduled before this baby was born. This is an easy shoot for mom because she doesn’t even need to be in the pictures!

Engagement Shoot on Mesa by Gorge Bridge

Engagement Shoot on Mesa by Gorge Bridge

I’m so excited for these two to tie-the-knot at Angel Fire Resort this summer!! Both Monica and George are locals in Taos, New Mexico. We met out at the bridge to get the Taos landscapes in the backgrounds: the gorge, the Rio Grande, and Three Peaks. Both Monica and George had an outfit change so they could get some casual and some ‘fancy’ photos! It doesn’t show in these engagement pictures, but the temperature was COLD on this January day and no doubt these two are looking forward to their warm June wedding!

Extended Family Christmas Photos in Angel Fire, NM

Extended Family Christmas Photos in Angel Fire, NM

Everyone put up with a little brisk January wind to get these darling family photos! This family came to Angel Fire from Texas to snowmobile in the New Mexico mountains (which wasn’t possible because of the warm winter we’ve had). Although we have had so little precipitation this season, it was a treat to have a small area with some patchy snow to add a little more “wintery” feeling to these fun family portraits!
