First Newborn Sitting of 2018

First Newborn Sitting of 2018

This little fella came with the new year as he was born the first week of January! At one week old, this mister was a joy to work with. His first-time mama was sensitive to his needs and made him feel safe when he was a little unsure of the camera. We had this shoot scheduled before this baby was born. This is an easy shoot for mom because she doesn’t even need to be in the pictures!

Wedding at Historic Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe

Wedding at Historic Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe

There is nothing like a wedding in the historic Loretto church in Santa Fe, NM! The legend and the staircase are both special and couples in love come from all over the world to be married in this famous building on the plaza.
Betsy and Jimmy knew from the beginning stages of their engagement that their wedding and reception would be taken care of by the Loretto resort. I personally love photographing weddings at this venue as the staff is always friendly, helpful, and everything is precisely on-time. Santa Fe lends itself so beautifully to photography, it’s always a pleasure to document brides and grooms in “the city different.”

Wedding and Reception in Dulce, New Mexico

Wedding and Reception in Dulce, New Mexico

The weather in Ducle, NM started out perfectly on this June wedding day. And then it rained. And rained and rained. The electricity went out in the church immediately after the ceremony but everyone breathed a sigh of relief when the reception site had a back up generator. This wedding reception was long, loud, and fun. All guests were up and dancing to everything from an Irish wedding song to Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style.’

These Taoseños were married right off of the Taos Plaza at Stellas, a cute (and delicious) Italian restaurant on Ledoux Street. The ceremony was officiated by Taos County magistrate court’s Judge Shannon. Marco and his awesome chef prepared the reception dinner for 23 guests. Monique and Miguel are such a relaxed and loving couple and will definitely be living happily ever after.
