Children at Taos Pueblo Pow Wow

“A pow wow is a gathering of Indian Nations in a common circle of friendship.
Indian Country is made up of many tribal nations, bands, villages, and pueblos, each with their own traditional tribal beliefs and practices. A pow wow is the common fiber which draws Indian people together. It is a time for sharing with old friends and making new friends; a time for singing and dancing. It is a time for trading; trading craft goods and trading songs.” –by Richard Archuleta (taken from the Taos Pueblo website)

A Love That’s On Fire

Chris works at the Taos Fire Department, it only seemed appropriate to do some of this engagement shoot with a firetruck adorning the background! This was an extremely easy photo shoot for me. Not only was it fun getting creative with this couple and the truck, but Danielle and Chris are both so easy to photograph as they just break into a smile every time they look at one another.
Chris and Danielle will be married in September. Happily ever after!
