The Class of 2021… This is the class of high school students who missed in-person learning at the end of their junior year, only to endure zoom-classes for most of their senior year. With in-person classes finally resuming in April of 2021, this class of kids had mere weeks of high school time together, under masks, socially distanced, to learn and thrive before saying goodbye.
This class of Cottonwood Classical seniors were lucky enough to walk at graduation. They walked, with masks, across the stage, elbow-bumping their educators before receiving the diploma. Despite the insanity and chaos, they did it.
So here’s to the Class of 2021, who proved their resilience and ingenuity during a difficult and poignant time. You did it. Good luck in the future and congratulations!
It’s an honor to be the official photographer for Betsy Musselman’s campaign for district court judge! Although we did it in a blizzard, we still captured some great head-shots of this experienced candidate. I am already looking forward to our next shoot and documenting a few political events along the way!
–Betsy Musselman for District Court Judge, Division 2, Raton
“I have lived and practiced law in northern New Mexico for 37 years. I specialize in family law, collaboration, mediation and domestic violence, and practice in the fields of civil and criminal law.
I was the Domestic Relations Hearing Officer and the Domestic Violence Commissioner in the 8th Judicial Distric Court for Taos, Colfax, and Union Counties for nine years.
My experience has given me a thorough understanding of the law and I strive to make northern New Mexico a place where citizens know they will be treated honestly and fairly.”
High school senior photo shoots are so fun because we get to just enjoy taking pictures, without a lot of pressure on time! We popped by a few different locations for Emma’s senior pictures so we could have some natural backgrounds and some Taos style architecture as well. The beautiful uninterrupted mountain views were taken from the roof of the Taos movie theater where Emma worked for several years, what great pictures! We are always open to trying new venues and location, it is inspiring to be somewhere different, for us and for our photography subjects.
It is summertime and it is green out! Right now is a perfect time of year to get your senior’s high school portraits crossed off of your list before their senior year even begins! In these summer months we have lush, colorful backgrounds and warm temps which helps with natural light and natural smiles! Call us today to schedule your senior’s class of 2019 senior photos. We love what we do and it shows in our photography.
What a pleasure to work with Amber Adams, certified Pilates instructor in her 1oth year of teaching.
Here’s a little ‘blurb’ I took directly from Amber’s Pilates website. She’s amazing, pop on by her studio! https://highdesertpilates.com/
“Having gained experience as a gymnast and dancer as a youth, Amber was drawn to Pilates as a young adult because it offered a “coming home” to body mechanics and movement. With a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from Western Kentucky University, she moved to Taos in 2003. She received her Pilates certification in 2008 after working for two years with Michele Larson of Core Dynamics in Santa Fe and interning with Carrie Field at Taos Pilates Studio. Committed to continuing education in the field, she has pursued advanced work with the Balanced Body Program in Denver as well as with Core Dynamics. Attending smaller workshops with Alan Herdman and Madeline Black.
Pleased with what Pilates has done for her “at so many different levels,” Amber wants to extend it to people of all ages and demographics and to work with modifications for those who may have injuries or disabilities.”
January was so warm that we shot portraits outside throughout the entire month. The natural brownish earth tones are so beautiful in the natural light and it’s rare that we can use these backgrounds without shooting in the cold! This shoot was taken for a local musician and songwriter who is creating a website. It was so fun to do head shots with the guitar for a prop instead of just the usual chest up shots.
Call Poetic Images by Deanna for your local business photography needs. We make the shoot fun and we take outstanding photographs…you’ll be pleased.
