Children at Taos Pueblo Pow Wow

“A pow wow is a gathering of Indian Nations in a common circle of friendship.
Indian Country is made up of many tribal nations, bands, villages, and pueblos, each with their own traditional tribal beliefs and practices. A pow wow is the common fiber which draws Indian people together. It is a time for sharing with old friends and making new friends; a time for singing and dancing. It is a time for trading; trading craft goods and trading songs.” –by Richard Archuleta (taken from the Taos Pueblo website)

The Perfect Gift: A Smile!

Sunshine and Kat had these portraits taken so they could give their mom an awesome birthday present, their smiles! Portraits can be necessary in many different aspects. Maybe you need a high school yearbook photo, or a photo to put on your business card? Recently I have had a lot of calls for headshots for various dating websites or for Facebook profile photos. Portraits also make incredible gifts for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, for Christmas, or to send with your son/daughter when they leave for college. Give Poetic Images by Deanna a call to schedule your portrait photo session today!

El Monte Sagrado– The Sacred Circle

El Monte Sagrado– The Sacred Circle

“We have all stood in places that made us pause and feel the earth beneath our feet — the Sacred Circle is just such a place. At the heart of El Monte Sagrado, this green space of 80-year-old cottonwood trees is said to have once been a Native American dancing ground. Flowing waterfalls, stone water sculptures, a wooden footbridge, and a trout-stocked pond invite you to stop and enjoy the moment. Lush regional plants and flowers offer a place to meditate, contemplate and relax. The Sacred Circle is also a very special venue for private events and weddings.” –Taken from the El Monte Sagrado website
