Little Boy Blue

My favorite shoots are when I have the opportunity to capture the precious smiles of children. My first photography job was actually a “mall job” taking photographs of kids. My manager was at least 10 years younger than me and I had to wear a necktie, the experience was humiliating. However, I did learn some “tricks” to get the young ones to smile, and this knowledge has been totally invaluable to me.

This little guy was “text book” in responding to my smiling tricks. We documented these smiles in less than five minutes AND had a blast doing it! I’ve been photographing this little man since he was just days old. I love my job.

Milestone Baby Portraits

Babies change so extremely fast! The difference in a baby’s face and body is so extreme from newborn, to three months, to six months, to 12 months. Additionally, at three months a baby holds his head up, at six months a baby is sitting up, at nine months standing up, at 12 months a baby is usually walking. These are the milestones that you want your photographer to capture during the 3/6/9/12 month baby portrait photo sessions. Many mothers schedule these photo shoots at their maternity sessions to make sure it’s in the calendar!

Rio Grande Gorge Bridge Elopement

Every bride and groom have a story! This fantastic couple was married to each other twenty years ago. They raised three sons. They experienced some hardships and decided to get divorced. After living apart for several years, they realized they couldn’t survive without one another. So they eloped to Northern New Mexico to remarry and restart “happily every after.” This wedding took place next to the breathtaking Rio Grande Gorge. The ceremony was perfect and the smiles and tears were touching and sincere.

Summertime Family Photo Fun!

The summer is a great time to have those beautiful green backgrounds in your professional family photographs! This family traveled to Taos to celebrate Father’s Day. While they were here, they took advantage of their family reunion and scheduled a photo session with Poetic Images. We had fun getting photos of the entire family together, each individual couple, photos of the kids, photos of each individual family, and pictures of the grandparents with the grandchildren too! This family did a great job coordinating outfits and giving sincere smiles. What a wonderful way to remember a vacation and a family get-together in gorgeous Taos, NM!

Wedding Ceremony and Reception at KTAOS

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.
