There is not a more beautiful backdrop for a wedding than the Sangre de Cristo mountain range that adorns the landscape of Taos, NM! For this reason, KTAOS Solar Center is a picture-perfect place to get married. Ali and Brian had an outdoor wedding in front of Taos Mountain and an outdoor reception to follow. After dinner was served, the bride, groom, and guests moved inside the venue for the first dance, the father/daughter dance, and to boogie down.

This is a perfect time to take advantage of the natural backdrops that New Mexico has to offer with high school senior, graduation, baby, children, engagement, and family portrait sessions.

I love that you can “feel” the Taos springtime in these engagement photos. The buds are barely coming out on some of the trees and bushes, and there are small leaves on the others. The light green is radiant in the backgrounds and the earth tones are still prevalent from winter’s slow departure.

This couple was all cuddles and smiles, which makes our job easy!! An engagement session actually creates cuddles and smiles, as your photographer will put you into poses that are oh-so-romantic. An engagement sitting only takes about 45 minutes and is a great way for you to get to know your wedding photographer and see samples of his/her work before your “big day.” Engagement shoots are done anywhere from a month to a year prior to your wedding and the photos are often times used for invitations, thank you cards, and to display at your wedding reception.

The most common background color request for photographs is green. But I love wintertime photographs. The brown grasses and the white snow bring so much contrast to this couple’s engagement photos. Additionally, the bright and vivid colors in the clothing definitely add “pop” to each image. If you can bear the colder weather, the winter photo-shoot is the way to go!

Poetic Images been photographing this family for over six years, what a joy to have such fun people for repeat business! During your family photo session, we will take photos of the group of you as a whole, individual photos of each family member, and “couples” shots (Mom/Dad together, mom/child together, dad/child together, children together, etc). We also encourage your family to bring a change of clothing for some more dressy photographs and some more casual photos as well.

“A pow wow is a gathering of Indian Nations in a common circle of friendship.
Tags: children, July, kids, outdoor, summertime, Taos
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)
“Pilates is a body conditioning routine that helps build flexibility and long, lean muscles, strength and endurance in the legs, abdominals, arms, hips, and back. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, breathing to relieve stress and allow adequate oxygen flow to muscles, developing a strong core or center (tones abdominals while strengthening the back), and improving coordination and balance.” –Wikipedia

It was so much fun to visit Carrie Field’s “Taos Pilates Studio” to take photographs for her website! Taos Pilates Studio offers private, semi-private, and group sessions using Pilates equipment and through mat classes. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Pilates is for everyone, the young and old, women and men, the super-fit and persons with injuries.

This couple is so sweet and every time they look at one another, they smile in happiness. While they were waiting for me to set up for a shot, they would look at one another with a beautiful gaze while smiling and talking. Many times I would catch them in a beautiful and candid pose and I would order, “Freeze!–Don’t move a muscle!” to get this shot, so romantic it almost looks set up!
Amanda and Jason will be wed in Taos at the end of June. In March, they were in town to do tastings for their wedding dinner and cake, it was a perfect opportunity for us to meet in person and take some engagement and family photographs!

I have some “tricks” up my sleeve to get children to look at the camera and smile. When I pulled out these “tricks,” little Emma got scared! Thanks to her big brother, Emma found her smile and this family photo shoot turned out beautiful.
