These gentlemen were encouraged to come to Taos for their destination elopement! Neither of these grooms had ever been to Taos and (thank God) they fell in love with it immediately!
The wedding was at a private home. After being together for over a decade this couple was still very nervous prior to the no-guest ceremony. The outdoor wedding ceremony was about fifteen minutes long and a few good-luck snow flakes even came down. Congratulations on this couple and many more decades of love!
This little fella came with the new year as he was born the first week of January! At one week old, this mister was a joy to work with. His first-time mama was sensitive to his needs and made him feel safe when he was a little unsure of the camera. We had this shoot scheduled before this baby was born. This is an easy shoot for mom because she doesn’t even need to be in the pictures!
I’ve been photographing these kids since they were tiny children, it’s so fun to see them grow up over the years! Now, young adults, these two are 14 and 16 years old and off to college in a few years. This family lives near the arroyos in the north valley of Albuquerque and we loved having the empty ditch and old irrigation system as a prop! Although this was an end-of-November shoot, we hit “peak autumn” in Albuquerque and the foliage was on fire!
The entire month of October is just beautiful in Northern New Mexico. In Taos the grasses and leaves take an entire month to change. I love the backgrounds in these pictures at the beginning of the October; the greens and yellows together are so pretty! The contrast of the leaves and the tree trunks is beautiful to me too. It was a brisk morning but we managed to get smiley photos of the almost-two-year-old before she burned out (photo shoots are a lot of work)!!
Even when the “kids” are grown up, it’s still a great time to have professional family portratis taken. This family was on vacation from Dallas, Texas and decided to have their family documented. This was an easy shoot. We met at these guys’ bed and breakfast and since we didn’t have tiny children, our shoot was done in 30 minutes. When you plan your Taos vacation, also plan and book a family photo session. This will capture the photo that gets missed most often, all of you together.
