Outdoors in Snowy Angel Fire

Outdoors in Snowy Angel Fire

This giant family came to celebrate New Year’s Day in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The day prior to this photo shoot the mountains received two feet of fresh snow, it was so fun to capture the snowy grounds, conifers, and aspens in these outdoor January family vacation portraits!
The priority to this family was to get a causal group photos of everyone… The darling buffalo plaid outfits were so coordinated and seasonal and the children were so cooperative, this was an easy feat. We also captured each individual family outside. These memories took less than an hour to create and the pictures are precious and will last forever. Thanks to this family for such a memorable time!

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!

Penasco Family Portraits

Family portraits are not only for when you have small children. Family portraits are to document the different stages your family goes through. Family portraits show how you grow and change as a family.
This family from Penasco, NM came to Taos for their outdoor family photo session. The portraits were not painful and I think it’s very possible that we all actually had fun!

We were able to capture this Grandma and Grandpa with their kids and grandkids at this shoot in the beautiful, green forest in the Black Hills of South Dakota! The fun part of this shoot was doing the posing, smiling, and shots as fast as we could as the light kept growing darker and darker and the thunder sounding closer and closer! In 30 minutes we got photos of the entire group, headshots of all of the adults, the couples together, the kids together, each individual family, all of the children individually, and the grandparents with their grandchildren. That’s some fast shooting!!
