Capturing Growing Up

Capturing Growing Up

School portraits can be awkward! If your children attend school in Taos County, call us to schedule a free September or October outdoor photo session for your kiddo(s). In a 15-minute photo shoot we capture several different poses of your child. If you have more than one student, we will photograph your children separately, and with their siblings. Photo sessions are private and quick and your photos are ready to proof in one week. This free photo sitting is available to all Taos and Colfax County students but the actual photos session must be done in Town of Taos. This offer is only good during September and October and on weekday evenings. Call us now to schedule ahead for those busy fall months!

Fall Family Portraits

Fall Family Portraits

As families grow and life gets busy, it’s easy to let your professional photos go by the wayside. Our longtime client, Crystal, never fails to schedule her yearly family portraits with us, as a result she has years of documentation of her babies growing up! This year Crystal had a yellow theme with her kids in yellow bowties and flipflops. The sunflowers were stubborn as they wanted to face the sun but they still made a stunning backdrop along with Taos Mountain.
Family sessions generally consist of photos of everyone together, sibling shots, and individual shots of the children. We capture both the posed and candid shots, as we want to show the total lifestyle of your family interacting with each other along with the pretty side.

Senior Pictures on Vacation in Red River, NM

Senior Pictures on Vacation in Red River, NM

This handsome senior attends high school at St. Pius in Albuquerque and has been coming up to Red River for skiing, Christmas, and summer rec since he was a kid. It was a good idea and a given that his senior pictures would be taken in Red River. I met Jacob and his mom at Mallette Park and we took advantage of the gorgeous autumn scenery there. This was a sentimental shoot for Jacob’s mom as she remembered her kids playing in this park as youngsters. Jacob brought his letterman jacket and a few different shirts to change into. He also brought his baseball bat, glove, and all-stars ring to showcase as achievements. After Mallette Park we had fun at the ski lift and getting creative with some chair lift shots. Jacob has been skiing this mountain since he was a little child! We hiked up the ski mountain a bit to capture the golden foliage and contrasting white trunks on the aspen trees. We also captured Jacob with the old Snow Cat trail groomer that is a landmark sight on the Red River ski hill! Lastly we headed to the covered bridge, another popular spot in Red River. The river was a beautiful background and important as it’s the namesake of this little mountain town. Here’s to Jacob and an awesome senior shoot. We got some amazing senior pictures for this family to have when their senior graduates and heads off to college. Congratulations to the Class of 2024!

Outdoor Autumn Wedding in Taos, NM

The golden leaves on the green grass were in contrast and so beautiful for this autumn wedding hosted at local bed and breakfast in Taos, NM. The Cottonwoods stood over the wedding with Taos Mountain views with pride and respect. Devon and Case, who claimed that they were awkward in photos, were adorable at the early afternoon ceremony. Their vows were well written, funny and heartfelt and most of the gusts cried. There was a slight breeze and a warm sunshine that was perfect mountain wedding weather for falltime. Our little mountain town is the perfect host for October weddings.

That green grass and orange pumpkins were brilliant in the sunshine on this late September wedding day at El Monte Sagrado. The priest blessed the sacred circle at popular El Monte Sagrado resort in Taos, and thus was able to perform a rare outdoor Catholic wedding ceremony which included communion. The bridesmaids carried brilliant bouquets with red Gerber daisies and multicolored sunflowers. The southwestern sunshine was warm; a perfect New Mexico autumn wedding.

Red River Elopement in August

Jackie and Catrina found a little cabin in Carson National Forest outside of Red River and planned a simple outdoor elopement. Karen Kelly of KWK Events provided the wedding flowers, a hair stylist, and an officiant, she could not however provide good weather. The ceremony began and it immediately started raining. Catrina smiled and politely refused an umbrella. The bride and groom then said their vows and sealed the vows with a kiss, in the rain! It was gorgeous and romantic and rare. There is nothing like an outdoor wedding in New Mexico!

Wedding Ceremony in Flower Garden

Wedding Ceremony in Flower Garden

This wedding was a private elopement: the bride, groom, officiant (Dan Jones), and photographer (me) only. The start time was 7pm and the light was gorgeous however by 7:15pm the bride and groom still had not arrived. Dan reached out to the wedding couple and they were shocked as they thought their wedding was the next evening. Instantly we all reviewed our contracts and communications and sure enough their wedding date was mentioned several times and Dan and I were right on target. Bre and James were just leaving dinner and were mortified. They raced to their hotel, changed clothes, and arrived approximately 40 minutes late. We still had some beautiful light and rushed to use the golden hour luminescence around the whimsical flower garden.

Michelle and Jeff Celebrate a Five Year Anniversary

Michelle and Jeff returned to Taos, NM to celebrate their wedding in 2018! We did an anniversary shoot and went to the same places we went to take pictures on their wedding day five years ago. Five years ago this bride and groom got tattoos on their Taos wedding elopement so we started their shoot at the tattoo shop and walked around downtown for a minute. Next we hit the Slide Trail and just like their wedding day, the winds picked up as soon as we arrived. We ended the shoot at Adobe Pines Inn in Ranchos de Taos where this couple stayed and had a labyrinth wedding. Congratulations to five years and another Taos happily ever after.

Engagement Session at Overland Sheepskin Company

Engagement Session at Overland Sheepskin Company

Kath and Brian are visiting Taos from New York City and wanted some photos with the mountains. We had a beautiful overcast sky and the mountains were on their best display. I loved that this couple wore hiking boots with their dress-up gear (they hiked the South Boundary Trail the day before)! We took some traditional photos and some more casual photos with the landscape and some local art. By the end of our shoot the sunshine was out and it felt like a Taos summertime again!
