These snowy portraits came out perfect considering we started and finished this shoot in 33 minutes, a very amazing feat with a four year old and 2 year old in the freezing cold! This mom and dad were so calm and did an amazing job as they distracted their children enough to not feel the current 20 degree temperature; our photographer was in a parka, hat, and gloves!
This photo session was shot along the banks in Red River, New Mexico. We also took a quick trip to the bottom of the ski lift to capture a ray of sunshine. We love capturing the smiles of families on vacation. Red River is such a beautiful area and it’s so easy to find backgrounds that reflect the nature and mountainous beauty of Northern New Mexico.
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!
What fun to do a family photo shoot with these smiling, happy girls! These sisters, ages one and three, giggled and smiled at the perfect times. They set up their own candid photos and allowed me just to shoot as they sat and looked cute together. I think it’s amazing how much the older child looks like her mom, and how much the younger girl looks like her father…darling!
We love taking family photos! Schedule your photo session now while we still have wonderful summery backgrounds!
Although we have been shooting tons of weddings, we always are shooting family, baby, and children’s portraits as well! The summertime is a wonderful time for children’s portraits as we have plenty of backgrounds and shady areas for children who may get bored if they are in one spot for too long! We captured Eli and Mr. Lion standing up for a few poses before we had to sit the little wiggle worm down. And then he felt like such a big boy sitting on the wall! Call us to capture your kids’ smiles in portraits that will touch your heart forever.
This little guy was revved up and ready for his 18-month-old portraits! His mommy and daddy danced and danced behind me as I took photos, and the toddler laughed and laughed!
The winter air was nippy so we took a few indoor breaks. The light from the fire place and the dark walls are so beautiful in the backgrounds.
