Engaged in December!

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.

Romantic Winter Engagement Shoot

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!

Summer Family Photographs

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.

Children at Taos Pueblo Pow Wow

“A pow wow is a gathering of Indian Nations in a common circle of friendship.
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)

Website Photographs for Taos Pilates Studio!

“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.
