I’ve been photographing these kids since they were tiny children, it’s so fun to see them grow up over the years! Now, young adults, these two are 14 and 16 years old and off to college in a few years. This family lives near the arroyos in the north valley of Albuquerque and we loved having the empty ditch and old irrigation system as a prop! Although this was an end-of-November shoot, we hit “peak autumn” in Albuquerque and the foliage was on fire!
Although we did this family photo shoot on a neighborhood street, it’s a fairly busy street for a small town. We did tons of traffic dodging and waiting for people and dogs to move so we could have clear shots. The photos appear calm and serene, so I think we did I good job faking it. Giant congrats to this newly engaged couple and cheers to an awesome blended family.
This autumn was giving and the colors lasted for quite a while before the leaves fell off the trees. This single-mom took advantage of the beautiful autumn colors and had a mother/daughter shoot to document her daughter at five years old, and also to send out pictures with Christmas cards! This entire shoot was done in under 45 minutes. We climbed trees and threw leaves and laughed. Call us to set up your autumn family shoot. Usually it’s the 1st three weeks of October that have the yellow leaves, schedule in advance to get the day/time that you want!
It’s “engagement season!!” More people get engaged between Halloween and Valentine’s Day than any other time of year. We love doing engagement sessions to mark this special time and our couples love having engagement photos so they can send off a save the date card to their guests! Engagement photos in the autumn and winter are a fun change from the summer and provide beautiful, earthy backgrounds.
This is the best time of year for senior photos; the fall colors beautiful in October, and then you have this ‘chore’ checked off your list for the rest of the senior year. Usually a senior shoot takes about 1.5 hours and that includes up to six outfit changes. We meet at a convenient Taos location and usually we have a lot of fun. I love exploring new areas and am open to your suggestions for shooting spots.
