Like everything else, Covid-19 has made school pictures different this year! We met this family in a special and private spot in Carson National Forest right outside of Town of Taos. The outdoor area was ideal for removing masks and documenting the children’s ever-changing smiles. The girl in jeans is an only child and a surrogate-sibling to the other two kiddos. The two girls are best friends and have been raised together since toddlerhood. This boy considers both girls his sisters.
It was the hottest day of 2020 during this midafternoon vow renewal and elopement package, the grass was crunchy and the earth radiated extreme New Mexico heat at 104 degrees. This couple was as cool as cucumbers at their vow renewal at Bareiss Gallery at the blinking-light in Taos, NM. Katy and Daniel and their cutest-in-the-world baby had a pandemic get away from Colorado to Taos, NM for their private ceremony in front of sacred Taos Mountain. After this couples initial wedding five years ago, these two went through hell and back. This ceremony was a symbol of their renewal and promise of love and light. Although officiant Dan Jones, and I were suffering from the heat, this husband and wife were so into each other and only noticed one another and the babbling of their baby. After the wedding ceremony, this couple had a champagne toast with the owner of Bareiss Gallery and we ran around the sculpture garden for a few fun shots. Cheers to this awesome family and their new vows to give their love strength and story.
These precious ladies gave us some toothless grins despite the 28 degree weather! We edited these photos down to 106 fantastic photos–we took them in only 40 minutes (including breaks in the warm car)! The photographers here click VERY QUICKLY during these outdoor photo sessions in the wintertime!
This was a shoot we couldn’t miss as it’s the 2nd baby milestone, sitting up! The next milestone is nine months old, when the babies are standing up during holding onto something. Happy 1/2 Birthday to these princesses!!
These kids were happy and excited about their autumn family photo session at their home in Taos! These October shoots with children are so fun as the cool air and crunchy leaves energizes the little ones and smiles come much easier than the warm months of summertime! The apples were presented as bribery for some smiles, and they complemented the autumn photos in every way.
These sisters’ love for one another was so photogenic! Their darling haircuts and outfits complimented each other and the yellow and green natural backgrounds. The crisp, morning autumn air kept us moving through the poses so we would stay warm, we had this shoot done in under 40 minutes!
This darling family was in Taos for their fall break and scheduled a family photo shoot during their vacation! Carson National Forest looked so perfect for this afternoon photo session with yellow grasses and leaves starting to come through the green. The children were excited with the brisk air and open area to play. We captured these smiles in 45 minutes which is the perfect amount of time for little ones before they lose attention. Cheers to the end of a wonderful summer and the start of a gorgeous autumn.
