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.
Could not pass up this beautiful sunflower backdrop on a gravel road in Llano Quemado, south of Taos!
Had a fabulous time trying to keep this 3-year old wiggle worm still and smiling while shooting these portraits! Little Eli loves to chat and we talked about monsters, robots, and of course flowers. I had picked two apples at a previous shoot and they were a perfect distraction for this little man!
This little guy is a “regular” as I have done portraits of him at 9 months and as a newborn! Rivers warmed up to the camera quite quickly and after a few poses decided he’d rather explore instead. It was fun to capture Rivers as he was enjoying the outdoors, as an 18 month old should! I’m already looking forward to the next shoot I have with this sweet boy!
This shoot may have made my personal record for “most poses in the shortest amount of time.” I think this entire Christmas session was done in under four minutes. The wind was bitter cold but that cloudy sky and beautiful snow were absolutely perfect! For a two-year-old, this little guy did an amazing job and was an impeccable young model!
