This little guy was revved up and ready for his 18-month-old portraits! His mommy and daddy danced and danced behind me as I took photos, and the toddler laughed and laughed!
The winter air was nippy so we took a few indoor breaks. The light from the fire place and the dark walls are so beautiful in the backgrounds.
The temperature in Red River last Saturday morning was 34, and according to weather.com, it felt like 21. This photo shoot was a big dose of FREEZING for this Texas family who was visiting Red River for vacation.
We posed and shot FAST and got some winning photos! The children were amazing before they turned into total icicles–which is when we decided to end the photo session. Autumn in New Mexico, ever unpredictable!
Could not pass up this beautiful sunflower backdrop on a gravel road in Llano Quemado, south of Taos!
Had a fabulous time trying to keep this 3-year old wiggle worm still and smiling while shooting these portraits! Little Eli loves to chat and we talked about monsters, robots, and of course flowers. I had picked two apples at a previous shoot and they were a perfect distraction for this little man!
This little guy is a “regular” as I have done portraits of him at 9 months and as a newborn! Rivers warmed up to the camera quite quickly and after a few poses decided he’d rather explore instead. It was fun to capture Rivers as he was enjoying the outdoors, as an 18 month old should! I’m already looking forward to the next shoot I have with this sweet boy!
Not only is Shyloe a princess, but she’s a champ! We took this portrait session in less than 15 minutes because it was so cold outside. Shyloe was such a big girl, so cooperative and smiley considering the early morning spring chill in the air!
