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.

The Beauty of Brand New Life

There is nothing as sweet, as precious, and as innocent as a newborn baby! Poetic Images is here to document the first moments of your child’s life. A new baby is so tiny and expressive, a time that can never be recaptured. We are available to capture your special (new) moments in our studio, at your birth center, hospital, or home.

Children Engaged in Yoga

Erika Hohn, owner of Octopus Arts Collective, has been teaching yoga to children for 11 years; we took photographs for her upcoming new website! A new resident to Taos, NM from Boulder, CO, Erika is already connecting with children at Shree Yoga Studio as she teaches “Sweet Pea” yoga hour. Erika has a playful personality and a strong musical and dance background; these gifts allow Erika to integrate smiling, chanting, and dance into her yoga classes for kids.

Two Year Old Pictures Are a Challenge!

Little David did not like having his photos taken. In fact, he did not seem to want to see me at all! When I was hidden, David smiled. A lot. This photo shoot consisted of me hiding and acting/feeling like the paparazzi, while David’s mom and dad hung out and played with David in the area we were shooting. Thank goodness we were not at my studio for this shoot, there is no way that I would’ve been able to hide and get these great smiles.

Catching Smiles in our Photography Studio

During the cold winter days here in Northern New Mexico, we are grateful to use our private (and warm) studio in Taos to capture your child’s portraits. Lola’s mommy wanted photographs of her daughter “in her element” and I believe we accomplished that in this photo shoot. Lola has a very theatrical side to her and we caught her happy, sad, playful, and serious moods. Lola loves her dog, high heels, and the color pink.
