Red River Vacation Pictures

Red River Vacation Pictures

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.

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!

Engagement Shoot — With The Kids!

Engagement Shoot — With The Kids!

Sonya and Adam are going to be wed this summer in Questa and will have their wedding reception at the Red River Convention Center! After rescheduling a few times, we finally captured this family and engagement session on a calm morning of what was otherwise a windy spring day in April. We were definitely “on the move” as this darling little boy is full of energy and wants to RUN!! Of course these kids will be the flower girl and ring bearer for the July wedding.

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!

We had this prenatal shoot on the schedule when this mama was three months pregnant and these pictures were taken three weeks before the baby was born! This was the coldest shoot that Poetic Images did in December in 2017. The temperature was lower than 20 degrees when we got started (and everyone had to breathe on cue so “breath smoke” wasn’t in the photos), amazing! Congratulations to this entire family and the recent birth of baby William! I had fun on this fun December family shoot!
