It’s hard to believe it’s “that” time of year again! Yes, Taos High School senior pictures for the yearbook are due on Halloween! In October we do a lot of senior sessions. I love how every senior has a different vision as to what they want from their senior photo shoot. This is Makayla who has recently located to Taos from out east. Have an awesome senior year, Makayla!
The “baby” in these photos turned one-year old this week! These maternity shots were taken last year and have been sitting in my blog “drafts” ever since then. It’s been a busy year for me as much as these new parents!
Maternity shoots are fun because the photos are memories of a pregnancy *and* memories of yourself before your life endured a major change! Some women want the shoot to be of only themselves, some women want to include their partner. Whatever you choose, we will document this special time with memories that will make you smile 20 years down the road.
We were able to capture this Grandma and Grandpa with their kids and grandkids at this shoot in the beautiful, green forest in the Black Hills of South Dakota! The fun part of this shoot was doing the posing, smiling, and shots as fast as we could as the light kept growing darker and darker and the thunder sounding closer and closer! In 30 minutes we got photos of the entire group, headshots of all of the adults, the couples together, the kids together, each individual family, all of the children individually, and the grandparents with their grandchildren. That’s some fast shooting!!
This darling little chap was all smiles for his 9-month-old baby portraits! He was proud to show off his standing and walking skills and gave me smiles and laughter on queue. Brogan’s mom and dad stepped in so we were able to photograph the entire family as well as mom/baby, dad/baby, and of course the sweet baby all alone. We will capture this cutie’s next modeling session at his one year mark.
What a fun portrait session with two gorgeous little girls! Danielle and Natalie were so well-behaved and fun during this shoot! Although a lot of outfit changes on a baby is not recommended (it exhausts them!), Danielle did a great job modeling her baptismal dress, and two darling sundresses. I’ve been taking photos of Natalie since she was a week old (she’s four now) and is always a joy to photograph.
This couple is busy getting ready for their wedding on Easter weekend! Monique and Miguel will celebrate their wedding with a small ceremony and reception of close friends and family. This marriage will take place at Stella’s with dinner and drinks to follow. There is also talk about getting a limousine for the traditional drive (and lots of honking) around the Taos plaza!
