Sonya and Adam are going to be wed this summer in Questa and will have their wedding reception at the Red River Convention Center! After rescheduling a few times, we finally captured this family and engagement session on a calm morning of what was otherwise a windy spring day in April. We were definitely “on the move” as this darling little boy is full of energy and wants to RUN!! Of course these kids will be the flower girl and ring bearer for the July wedding.
We had this prenatal shoot on the schedule when this mama was three months pregnant and these pictures were taken three weeks before the baby was born! This was the coldest shoot that Poetic Images did in December in 2017. The temperature was lower than 20 degrees when we got started (and everyone had to breathe on cue so “breath smoke” wasn’t in the photos), amazing! Congratulations to this entire family and the recent birth of baby William! I had fun on this fun December family shoot!
What an absolute pleasure to hangout with this couple for an hour capturing these photos. Although we haven’t had significant snow this season, the beautiful yellow grasses and brown earth tones are soft and stunning backgrounds. We did a quick outfit change so we could get some different styles in the images. Celebrating their 25th anniversary, Cynthia and Dave will frame some of these prints and give them to their kids for Christmas gifts.
The entire month of October is just beautiful in Northern New Mexico. In Taos the grasses and leaves take an entire month to change. I love the backgrounds in these pictures at the beginning of the October; the greens and yellows together are so pretty! The contrast of the leaves and the tree trunks is beautiful to me too. It was a brisk morning but we managed to get smiley photos of the almost-two-year-old before she burned out (photo shoots are a lot of work)!!
It’s “engagement season!!” More people get engaged between Halloween and Valentine’s Day than any other time of year. We love doing engagement sessions to mark this special time and our couples love having engagement photos so they can send off a save the date card to their guests! Engagement photos in the autumn and winter are a fun change from the summer and provide beautiful, earthy backgrounds.
