I’ve been photographing these kids since they were tiny children, it’s so fun to see them grow up over the years! Now, young adults, these two are 14 and 16 years old and off to college in a few years. This family lives near the arroyos in the north valley of Albuquerque and we loved having the empty ditch and old irrigation system as a prop! Although this was an end-of-November shoot, we hit “peak autumn” in Albuquerque and the foliage was on fire!
I love taking advantage of Albuquerque’s Bosque when I am shooting down in The Duke City! El Bosque (the forest) is by the Rio Grande and much more lush than a lot of places in Albuquerque. The cottonwoods are both new and old, and give us both needed shade and beautiful lines in the backgrounds of our photos.
I had a wonderful time “playing” down by the river, especially with these kids. The hike with this family (and their dog) was fun and adventurous, an outstanding day out of the office!
Springtime is a perfect time to call us to capture your children’s smiling faces and Easter outfits! Usually at this time of year, we have some green buds on the trees and some kind of flowering tree that look beautiful in your photographs. Did you know that all of our photo sessions include an outfit change just in case you would like to get some photos that are a bit more casual and some photographs that are a bit more dressy?
About once a month, I drive to Albuquerque to take care of clients who are not able to make it up to Taos. Driving only an hour or two away can sometimes make a huge difference in the way of weather. While the leaves had been falling off of the trees for several weeks in Taos, the backgrounds in Albuquerque were still green!
This photo shoot was done at Los Poblanos Farms in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque. The mums add a perfect feeling of autumn and these kids were dressed in lovely fall colors as well.
