After months of portraits with brown backgrounds there is a noticeable difference in the green of spring! Just ten days prior to this shoot, we had 12″ of snow on the ground in Taos Canyon. The earth has drank up the much needed water and everything is growing! Here’s to May, the last month that we may still have a freeze. And the first month where it really feels like spring!
And here’s to Samantha from Taos Pueblo! She’s a senior in high school and is graduating at the end of this month from Taos High School. Congratulations, Samantha!!
This couple traveled from Texas to New Mexico to elope in Taos! The wedding ceremony took place at Touchstone Inn which is a green oasis in this Northern New Mexico desert land. The green grass, shade, and pleasant breeze kept all cool and comfortable in the early summer heat. What fun to walk around and shoot some romantics inside and outside this bed and breakfast, so many interesting rooms adorned with beautiful art!
Darcy and Brian were wed under a chuppah. Symbolically, the chuppah is a house that represents that the bride and groom’s life will be spent together. The wedding ceremony took place at El Monte Sagrado’s Sacred Circle and was set up in a circular fashion. The reception was a festive occasion with lawn games outdoors and a cocktail hour before a sit down dinner was served.
The summer is a great time to have those beautiful green backgrounds in your professional family photographs! This family traveled to Taos to celebrate Father’s Day. While they were here, they took advantage of their family reunion and scheduled a photo session with Poetic Images. We had fun getting photos of the entire family together, each individual couple, photos of the kids, photos of each individual family, and pictures of the grandparents with the grandchildren too! This family did a great job coordinating outfits and giving sincere smiles. What a wonderful way to remember a vacation and a family get-together in gorgeous Taos, 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.
