A Mama, A Papa, and Two Beautiful Babies

Jessica and Mario are very busy parents of the cutest set of twins! Speaking as an experienced photographer, it is extremely difficult to get one kid to look (and smile) at the camera, what an extra challenge to get TWO children to cooperate! We all laughed as we chased around these kiddos, trying our hardest to get the kids in the right place at the right time. The fun never stops during family photography sessions!

Family Photo Session

Amanda and Jason will be wed in Taos at the end of June. In March, they were in town to do tastings for their wedding dinner and cake, it was a perfect opportunity for us to meet in person and take some engagement and family photographs!
I have some “tricks” up my sleeve to get children to look at the camera and smile. When I pulled out these “tricks,” little Emma got scared! Thanks to her big brother, Emma found her smile and this family photo shoot turned out beautiful.

Family Fun at Photo Session

The first photo shoot I did for this family is when Cielo was a newborn baby, that was over six years ago now! It’s hard to believe that I have been a business owner and photographer in Taos for seven years now, and before that a professional photographer in Albuquerque for three additional years. It’s hard to believe how the last ten years have flown!
Happy New Year to all of my clients, the young and the old. Thank you so much for making the last ten years of my life so special and so memorable–here’s to (at least) ten more years of smiles!!

Children’s Portraits On-Location in Taos

Both Coco (four months) and Lola (three years) had so much fun in the crisp fall air for their autumn portraits. While I photographed Coco, Lola ran around a played in the grass and leaves; when I photographed Lola, Coco loved to watch Lola and every move that Lola made. I believe it’s important to choose a location for that is ideal for your family. If you have a high energy three year old, I usually recommend taking your photographs on location at a site where the child can run around an not be constrained for more than a few minutes at a time. For small babies and newborns, I love using our indoor studio and fluffy blankets to cater to your little one’s warmth and comfort.

Autumn in Albuquerque, NM

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.
