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.
Family portraits are not only for when you have small children. Family portraits are to document the different stages your family goes through. Family portraits show how you grow and change as a family.
This family from Penasco, NM came to Taos for their outdoor family photo session. The portraits were not painful and I think it’s very possible that we all actually had fun!
The fall foliage peak was over but we still found some beautiful autumn colors to include with this father-daughter family photo session. Lucas and Juniper and I took advantage of a beautiful side street in town that had a few lasting yellows and golds, it even had one tree that was still green! It was a long and strange autumn this year in Taos, the wonderful thing about that was we had lots of time to get every baby, family, senior, engagement shoot, and wedding whom wanted those gorgeous autumn earth tones in their portraits.
