Taos High School Senior Photos

It’s hard to believe it’s “that” time of year again! Yes, Taos High School senior pictures for the yearbook are due on Halloween! In October we do a lot of senior sessions. I love how every senior has a different vision as to what they want from their senior photo shoot. This is Makayla who has recently located to Taos from out east. Have an awesome senior year, Makayla!

A Child’s Portraits with Sunflowers

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!

Prenatal Photography Session

The “baby” in these photos turned one-year old this week! These maternity shots were taken last year and have been sitting in my blog “drafts” ever since then. It’s been a busy year for me as much as these new parents!

Maternity shoots are fun because the photos are memories of a pregnancy *and* memories of yourself before your life endured a major change! Some women want the shoot to be of only themselves, some women want to include their partner. Whatever you choose, we will document this special time with memories that will make you smile 20 years down the road.

Destination Wedding: Taos!

This sweet couple came all the way from Massachusetts to New Mexico for their destination wedding at El Monte Sagrado, a four diamond resort in Northern New Mexico. Many people claim that Taos is a magical place, and this couple may agree. The pouring rain stopped in perfect timing for this wedding ceremony to start. And the rain commenced again as soon as I packed up my camera gear. Congratulations to these awesome East Coast newly weds! May the luck of wedding-day-rain follow you forever!

South Dakota Wedding at the “Indian Church”

Beautiful couple from California who came “home” to Dakota to recite their wedding vows! This simple church didn’t have electricity and the altar decor of candles in Ball jars were a perfect combination with the natural light. The country club wedding reception was in stark contrast with the ceremony location as we had electricity, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and green, watered grass! Poetic Images by Deanna is based in New Mexico and travels all over the world to photograph your wedding day!
