What fun to go to Red River and take portraits of this beautiful family! We took these photos behind the Red River Convention Center; I was so pleased we had so many backgrounds to choose from (ie tall grass, the river, trees, mowed green grass, etc)! Even after traveling from Texas, these children were happy and well-behaved and easy to photograph. Our shoot took under 60 minutes and these smiles will last a lifetime. What a great idea to have photographs taken on the family vacation. Call us when you are thinking of your vacation plans and we will get you in our schedule!
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!
My favorite shoots are when I have the opportunity to capture the precious smiles of children. My first photography job was actually a “mall job” taking photographs of kids. My manager was at least 10 years younger than me and I had to wear a necktie, the experience was humiliating. However, I did learn some “tricks” to get the young ones to smile, and this knowledge has been totally invaluable to me.
This little guy was “text book” in responding to my smiling tricks. We documented these smiles in less than five minutes AND had a blast doing it! I’ve been photographing this little man since he was just days old. I love my job.
This beautiful couple celebrated 70 years of marriage with a huge family reunion and a small portrait session. Poetic Images comes to your location to make your life easier. Give our studio a call and let’s set up your anniversary (or family, children, business, engagement, etc) portraits today!
People who visit Angel Fire, Red River, Taos, and the rest of Northern New Mexico tend to LOVE it here. For this reason, we are consistently shooting family shoots while people are vacationing; people want to document the smiles and memories made in such a special place! These photo sessions happen (inside and outdoors) at all times of the year. The beautiful backgrounds (green grass, adobe architecture, grandiose mountains, running water, thick forest, white snow, etc) are plentiful and photogenic. A family shoot of up to 15 people only takes about one hour. We take unlimited poses during this time: group shots, individual family shots, grandma/grandpa with grandkids, cousins only, siblings only, etc!
