These ladies were married five years ago, in a double wedding ceremony with their best friends (two males). Dan Jones was the officiant for this wedding and I was the photographer. The six of us had a wonderful time on the wedding hike and ceremony adventure. Dan and I named these people, “the fabulous four.” Fast forward to this anniversary shoot! Even though the guys were not interested in an anniversary shoot, we did get a pic of all four of these besties when we shot the ladies. Congratulations on five years to both of these couples. What an awesome team of friends!!
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.
This bride and groom were long time Taos locals before moving away and settling up in Colorado. The church, First Presbyterian of Taos, is conveniently located in the middle of Taos next to Kit Carson Park and a beautiful church for a wedding ceremony in a sanctuary. The exterior and interior of this old church are the traditional Pueblo style: adobe on the outside and adorned indoors with vigas on the ceiling and a simple cross on the wall. Afterwards the photographer took this couple out for a few photographs with the great Taos Mountain. Congratulations to lovely newlyweds!
These girls are two months old and what fun they are having looking and watching the action around them! This is a fun time to do photos as we can capture the wonder in the eyes. About three months old we can make the baby smile on command, and six months old is usually the photo shoot where the baby is sitting up solo. The next milestone, nine-months-old, is when children are usually standing up by holding onto something and the final photo is the one-year-old pose where the child is standing up all by themselves! These beautiful milestones are over quickly, which is why we capture images to keep forever. When you are pregnant, you can set up your prenatal photo session and then your newborn, 3/6/9 months, and year old photo shoot at one time and mix and match photos for a wall-folio.
