Maternity Photos in Albuquerque’s Bosque

Maternity Photos in Albuquerque’s Bosque

This beautiful pregnant woman is due to have her baby in less than four weeks!
Our maternity shoot took place in Albuquerque’s bosque near the Rio Grande. The light was constantly changing as giant clouds came out of nowhere and the sun was still fighting to shine brilliantly! The bare native cottonwoods were photogenic and this soon-to-be mama did an awesome job navigating through the sicks and logs.
Congratulations in advance to Angelica and Jesus!

Boudoir Photos for Modeling Portfolio

Boudoir Photos for Modeling Portfolio

Nicolette has been modeling for artists for over a decade; I was so pleased for the opportunity to photograph this beautiful, native Taosena! Nicolette admits that she was very nervous prior to her photo session, but within 15 minutes we were both talking and laughing and she was totally relaxed.
There is more to being a studio photographer than just pushing the button on the camera. I pride myself on a shining personality that allows me to easily chat and connect with my clients. Without this connection, I feel it would be difficult to execute even one image that truly represents the personality of my subject.

Boudoir Session with Beautiful Taoseña Native

Boudoir Session with Beautiful Taoseña Native

Yvette has an exotic look that photographs so well! We scheduled this photography shoot because Yvette has never had a professional studio session before; she is an awesome model and I love helping her build up her portfolio!
I have recently learned that boudoir photography became popular in the United States in the 1920’s when very affluent married couples would commission a photographer to take elegant “bedroom photos” to hang in their house. These photos sessions usually featured only women, and almost never were the subjects in the nude.

Sharon and John live in Virginia and came to Taos to elope and have their intimate destination wedding ceremony in front of beautiful Taos Mountain. This springtime wedding took place at beautiful bed and breakfast La Hacienda del Sol right on Taos Main Street. The flowers were done locally by Mercedes of Elegante Floral. There was a plaid ribbon wrapped around the bouquet that matched the Scottish groom’s tux bow tie… cool!! Congratulations to Sharon and John!!

A Destination Wedding at El Monte Sagrado

Andrea and Tom came from the east coast to enjoy their destination wedding in Taos, NM. Their intimate ceremony at El Monte Sagrado took place in The Sacred Circle and was officiated by Reverend Susan Varon. The only guests were the bride and the groom’s sets of parents. The clouds provided beautiful natural lighting for photos with gorgeous green backdrop.
