We are well into the new school year and I have been extremely busy shooting high school senior sessions! The seniors are always a blast to shoot; most seniors start out pretty nervous, but after a few minutes we are laughing and the smiles are genuine. I allow seniors to bring up to six different outfits to change into; I love seeing the different collections of clothing, shoes, and jewelry the students bring. I wish the class of 2012 a wonderful school year– I will see you at graduation!!
Although I have some fantastic places “up my sleeve,” I love it when my clients have new ideas on where to go for their on-location photo sessions. Places I have never been before are absolutely inspiring. New places make me think, and be sharp and quick about my decisions. Upon arrival I must scan the landscape for the best lighting and backgrounds and view “the big picture” so I can take advantage of both my telephoto and wide-angle lenses. The beauty of New Mexico is that there are always new places to discover; this gives me a never ending enthusiasm for not only my profession, but my passion: photography.
Betsy Musselman, Taos attorney specializing in family law, had me come to her law office to take some photos for her new website. I took pictures of her office (check out the amazing colors in her rooms) and head shots of Betsy for new business cards. Poetic Images has been doing tons of photography for websites, business cards, and other forms of business advertising.
Armando needed a variety of different digital images for a photography project for his work, so we went to work! This photo session was captured at one of my super secret locations here in the Town of Taos. I love all of the different backgrounds that this location has to offer: green trees and flowers, various colors of adobe, broken down and spray painted areas, both bright colors and earth tones, and most importantly, fantastic lighting!
