Small Family of a Mother and Daughter

This was one of my favorite photo shoots of all time! This was a spontaneous shoot that was set up about 30 minutes before the sunset. I explained that we didn’t have enough time to do a “real” shoot with this limited window of light. This mother and daughter “team” (I just cannot explain them any other way!) just wanted a casual photo session, so we rushed to the closest pine tree. I didn’t even have to tell these folks how to pose! These two were so candid and carefree with one another and I believe these pictures radiate their happiness and love. Gwyn (the daughter) also brought her friend along for a few quick pictures (which we took in about 1.5 minutes). Again, so candid and cute! I wish every photo shoot was this carefree and easy to pull off. Thanks to this awesome team!!

Family Photo Session

Amanda and Jason will be wed in Taos at the end of June. In March, they were in town to do tastings for their wedding dinner and cake, it was a perfect opportunity for us to meet in person and take some engagement and family photographs!
I have some “tricks” up my sleeve to get children to look at the camera and smile. When I pulled out these “tricks,” little Emma got scared! Thanks to her big brother, Emma found her smile and this family photo shoot turned out beautiful.

Eloping on Valentine’s Day!

Ashley and Jacob came all the way from Gallup, NM to elope on Valentine’s Day weekend! This beautiful couple chose to have their destination wedding in Taos, NM because of the beauty and spirituality that Northern New Mexico radiates. These newlyweds wanted an outdoor ceremony with mountain views and this is what they received on this beautiful day, in February, under the warm, high-altitude sunshine.

Engagement Photo Shoot in the Snow

This couple has a wedding scheduled at Hacienda del Sol in Taos, NM on the first day of 2012. At the beginning of December, they called the Town of Taos about obtaining their marriage license and they found out that all government offices in Taos would be closed on Friday, December 30 through January 2nd, the only days Laila and Joe would be in Taos! So this smiley couple drove from Oklahoma City to Taos for a “quick” road trip, all so they would have a marriage license in hand for their wedding on New Years Day.
What an adventure!!

Creative Wedding Aisle With Fall Leaves

Audrey and Robert had an intimate wedding ceremony at a Taos bed and breakfast, Hacienda del Sol. This couple walked down a unique aisle of green grass, created by absence of the beautiful autumn leaves that covered the rest of the Hacienda’s grounds. The mountains were a gorgeous backdrop to a perfect ceremony. Jimmy Stadler played acoustic guitar and there was a crisp autumn feeling in the air. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is NOTHING like a Taos wedding!
