This was a family shoot that turned into a proposal (with a guitarist!) which turned into a surprise family gathering which turned into a celebration which turned into an engagement shoot! Congratulations to Jaxx’s parents who are engaged to get married! This family came from Oklahoma and Texas to ski and enjoy a family vacation in Taos. Congratulations to Haley and Jake on their engagement!!
Everyone put up with a little brisk January wind to get these darling family photos! This family came to Angel Fire from Texas to snowmobile in the New Mexico mountains (which wasn’t possible because of the warm winter we’ve had). Although we have had so little precipitation this season, it was a treat to have a small area with some patchy snow to add a little more “wintery” feeling to these fun family portraits!
We had this prenatal shoot on the schedule when this mama was three months pregnant and these pictures were taken three weeks before the baby was born! This was the coldest shoot that Poetic Images did in December in 2017. The temperature was lower than 20 degrees when we got started (and everyone had to breathe on cue so “breath smoke” wasn’t in the photos), amazing! Congratulations to this entire family and the recent birth of baby William! I had fun on this fun December family shoot!
I’ve been photographing these kids since they were tiny children, it’s so fun to see them grow up over the years! Now, young adults, these two are 14 and 16 years old and off to college in a few years. This family lives near the arroyos in the north valley of Albuquerque and we loved having the empty ditch and old irrigation system as a prop! Although this was an end-of-November shoot, we hit “peak autumn” in Albuquerque and the foliage was on fire!
This autumn was giving and the colors lasted for quite a while before the leaves fell off the trees. This single-mom took advantage of the beautiful autumn colors and had a mother/daughter shoot to document her daughter at five years old, and also to send out pictures with Christmas cards! This entire shoot was done in under 45 minutes. We climbed trees and threw leaves and laughed. Call us to set up your autumn family shoot. Usually it’s the 1st three weeks of October that have the yellow leaves, schedule in advance to get the day/time that you want!
The entire month of October is just beautiful in Northern New Mexico. In Taos the grasses and leaves take an entire month to change. I love the backgrounds in these pictures at the beginning of the October; the greens and yellows together are so pretty! The contrast of the leaves and the tree trunks is beautiful to me too. It was a brisk morning but we managed to get smiley photos of the almost-two-year-old before she burned out (photo shoots are a lot of work)!!
