Family Photographs for Christmas Cards

I’ve been photographing these kids since they were tiny children, it’s so fun to see them grow up over the years! Now, young adults, these two are 14 and 16 years old and off to college in a few years. This family lives near the arroyos in the north valley of Albuquerque and we loved having the empty ditch and old irrigation system as a prop! Although this was an end-of-November shoot, we hit “peak autumn” in Albuquerque and the foliage was on fire!

Thanksgiving Weekend Wedding

Another wonderful bride and groom from Colorado! This fun couple had their wedding out on the mesa in Taos, NM. with the Sange de Cristo mountain range and Rio Grande Gorge Bridge adorning the background. The bride and flower girl walked through the sagebrush to meet the groom out on the rim of the gorge who waited with about 25 guests. The ceremony was simple and sweet and was followed by a first dance. We had perfect weather and the next day it snowed over a foot, wedding luck!
Congratulations to Sarah and Paris!

Afternoon Wedding in November

This couple came from Los Alamos to have their wedding in Taos! The Sagebrush was a perfect place to host both the wedding and the ceremony. All guests stayed at the Sagebrush and didn’t have to leave the grounds until they left town. We had beautiful light to do the photos prior to the ceremony. The grass filled courtyards were a nice place to shoot the pictures and allowed the young children to run around before having to sit still. The ceremony took place in the convention center in front of the fireplace. Congratulations to these newlyweds!!

Red River Family Photographs in the Snow

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!

Late Autumn in El Bosque

I love taking advantage of Albuquerque’s Bosque when I am shooting down in The Duke City! El Bosque (the forest) is by the Rio Grande and much more lush than a lot of places in Albuquerque. The cottonwoods are both new and old, and give us both needed shade and beautiful lines in the backgrounds of our photos.
I had a wonderful time “playing” down by the river, especially with these kids. The hike with this family (and their dog) was fun and adventurous, an outstanding day out of the office!
