A Growing Family

A Growing Family

We had this prenatal shoot on the schedule when this mama was three months pregnant and these pictures were taken three weeks before the baby was born! This was the coldest shoot that Poetic Images did in December in 2017. The temperature was lower than 20 degrees when we got started (and everyone had to breathe on cue so “breath smoake” wasn’t in the photos), amazing! Congratulations to this entire family and the recent birth of baby William! I had fun on this fun December family shoot!

Outdoor Winter Maternity Photos

Outdoor Winter Maternity Photos

This little boy closed his eyes, put his hat over his head, and turned around so we could not take photos of him! His parents and I talked and encouraged and pleaded and bribed and begged, but we were dealing with a very smart two year old. The photos we did get are still beautiful. And now this little boy is a big brother, so the next photo shoot will be really exciting!

Maternity Photos in Albuquerque’s Bosque

This beautiful pregnant woman is due to have her baby in less than four weeks!
Our maternity shoot took place in Albuquerque’s bosque near the Rio Grande. The light was constantly changing as giant clouds came out of nowhere and the sun was still fighting to shine brilliantly! The bare native cottonwoods were photogenic and this soon-to-be mama did an awesome job navigating through the sicks and logs.
Congratulations in advance to Angelica and Jesus!

Wintertime Pregnancy in Taos

Wintertime Pregnancy in Taos

This February shoot was chilly but the photos came out terrific! The lines and the dramatic contrast achieved in winter photography are interesting and visually exciting. Many people have their minds set on a ‘green’ background, or something with flowers. It’s hard to explain that the beauty and calm of snow actually brings warmth to an image. The cold adds a little natural rosy color to skin and keeps us laughing and having a good time! Even if it’s wintertime, call and schedule your outdoor maternity photo session to document your pregnancy! We are ready for the temporary cold if you are!
