Red River Vacation Pictures

Red River Vacation Pictures

These snowy portraits came out perfect considering we started and finished this shoot in 33 minutes, a very amazing feat with a four year old and 2 year old in the freezing cold! This mom and dad were so calm and did an amazing job as they distracted their children enough to not feel the current 20 degree temperature; our photographer was in a parka, hat, and gloves!

This photo session was shot along the banks in Red River, New Mexico. We also took a quick trip to the bottom of the ski lift to capture a ray of sunshine. We love capturing the smiles of families on vacation. Red River is such a beautiful area and it’s so easy to find backgrounds that reflect the nature and mountainous beauty of Northern New Mexico.

Outdoors in Snowy Angel Fire

Outdoors in Snowy Angel Fire

This giant family came to celebrate New Year’s Day in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The day prior to this photo shoot the mountains received two feet of fresh snow, it was so fun to capture the snowy grounds, conifers, and aspens in these outdoor January family vacation portraits!
The priority to this family was to get a causal group photos of everyone… The darling buffalo plaid outfits were so coordinated and seasonal and the children were so cooperative, this was an easy feat. We also captured each individual family outside. These memories took less than an hour to create and the pictures are precious and will last forever. Thanks to this family for such a memorable time!

Engagement Photography Session with Snow!

Engagement Photography Session with Snow!

These two are at school in UNM in Albuquerque and will get married up in Northern New Mexico right on the river! We started this shoot at one location and drove less than four miles to another location. The photos look like they are in completely different areas with the warm sunshine in some, and cold shad and snow in the others. We were so lucky to have a little bit of snow for this shoot, the first snow portraits I’ve taken this winter, and it’s January!!

Engagement Shoot on Mesa by Gorge Bridge

Engagement Shoot on Mesa by Gorge Bridge

I’m so excited for these two to tie-the-knot at Angel Fire Resort this summer!! Both Monica and George are locals in Taos, New Mexico. We met out at the bridge to get the Taos landscapes in the backgrounds: the gorge, the Rio Grande, and Three Peaks. Both Monica and George had an outfit change so they could get some casual and some ‘fancy’ photos! It doesn’t show in these engagement pictures, but the temperature was COLD on this January day and no doubt these two are looking forward to their warm June wedding!
