High Desert Pilates — A Taos Pilates Studio

High Desert Pilates — A Taos Pilates Studio

What a pleasure to work with Amber Adams, certified Pilates instructor in her 1oth year of teaching.
Here’s a little ‘blurb’ I took directly from Amber’s Pilates website. She’s amazing, pop on by her studio! https://highdesertpilates.com/

“Having gained experience as a gymnast and dancer as a youth, Amber was drawn to Pilates as a young adult because it offered a “coming home” to body mechanics and movement. With a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from Western Kentucky University, she moved to Taos in 2003. She received her Pilates certification in 2008 after working for two years with Michele Larson of Core Dynamics in Santa Fe and interning with Carrie Field at Taos Pilates Studio. Committed to continuing education in the field, she has pursued advanced work with the Balanced Body Program in Denver as well as with Core Dynamics. Attending smaller workshops with Alan Herdman and Madeline Black.
Pleased with what Pilates has done for her “at so many different levels,” Amber wants to extend it to people of all ages and demographics and to work with modifications for those who may have injuries or disabilities.”

Blue Blood Moon at Adobe and Pines Inn

Blue Blood Moon at Adobe and Pines Inn

I got together with this darling couple earlier in the afternoon on wedding day since their entire wedding was outdoors after dark. We captured their smiles in the daylight before I left to come back after dark.
This bride and groom came to Taos for their destination elopement and planned the ceremony to be during the 2nd full moon in January. This full moon was also a lunar eclipse. This was officially my first “Blue Blood Moon” wedding. Additionally, the wedding was shot in a labyrinth… It was unique and beautiful and very Taos!

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!
