These two are at school in UNM in Albuquerque and will get married up in Northern New Mexico right on the river! We started this shoot at one location and drove less than four miles to another location. The photos look like they are in completely different areas with the warm sunshine in some, and cold shad and snow in the others. We were so lucky to have a little bit of snow for this shoot, the first snow portraits I’ve taken this winter, and it’s January!!
After months of portraits with brown backgrounds there is a noticeable difference in the green of spring! Just ten days prior to this shoot, we had 12″ of snow on the ground in Taos Canyon. The earth has drank up the much needed water and everything is growing! Here’s to May, the last month that we may still have a freeze. And the first month where it really feels like spring!
And here’s to Samantha from Taos Pueblo! She’s a senior in high school and is graduating at the end of this month from Taos High School. Congratulations, Samantha!!
