Engagement Shoot and Blended Family Portraits

Engagement Shoot and Blended Family Portraits

This soon-to-be-family came from Texas to Angel Fire, NM for a vacation. When they arrived, their home didn’t have heat…and it was 25 degrees outside. Despite a long drive, moving into a hotel, and cold temperatures, we still captured some amazing smiles. Lynn and Jon will be married this summer, little Macy loves Jon and is along for the ride! Congratulations to a beautiful engagement and a lovely blended family!

Red River Family Photographs in the Snow

Red River Family Photographs in the Snow

The temperature in Red River last Saturday morning was 34, and according to weather.com, it felt like 21. This photo shoot was a big dose of FREEZING for this Texas family who was visiting Red River for vacation.
We posed and shot FAST and got some winning photos! The children were amazing before they turned into total icicles–which is when we decided to end the photo session. Autumn in New Mexico, ever unpredictable!

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

April Wedding in Blizzard at Taos Country Club

This Taos Country Club wedding was one I photographed several (six?) years ago! I wanted to post these pictures because it is a good reminder of how unpredictable the weather is here in Northern New Mexico!

When I started to photograph this bride and groom prior to the wedding ceremony, the Sangre de Cristo mountain range was barely visible, but it WAS visible. After the wedding we had a completely white/grey backdrop as the snow storm had moved into Taos and was making it’s way out to the country club! And, then it started snowing…
Five hours later the golf club’s green grass was a blanket of snow. The bride and groom were still in good spirits and even stepped outside for a few more memorable wedding images.

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!

January Engagement Photo Session

January Engagement Photo Session

This was a VERY cold weekend in Taos and this couple did not complain one time! Despite the cold, we had a lot of fun getting to know one another during this engagement session. I will shoot this couple’s wedding in May in Santa Fe so an engagement shoot was a great way for us to work together prior to the big day!
