Trying to come up with a concept for this client, we bounced several ideas around.We wanted a holiday feel but also represent that they were stationed here at Holloman AFB, in New Mexico. There is nothing more christmassy in New mexcico than Luminaries! This beautiful dress, rented from Raineys closet pulled everything together so perfectly!
The beginning of summer last year I decided I wanted to venture out a little bit and try my hand at senior photography! Olive and June Boutique Located in Alamogordo, New Mexico was kind enough to humor me and provide several outfits for this fun little venture! One of these images even placed first in the senior category in the NAPCP image competition . This shoot in total lasted about an hour. About 45 minutes of that was sitting in the car waiting on the monsoon season storm to pass us by! Im so glad we hung around!
I dont normally photograph couples! Normally I am a children only or children and their family kind of photographer! But I had photographed these two with one of their puppy last year during my fall mini session weekend and when they told me they had a new puppy and wanted some whitesands national monument images to remember their time here at Holloman AFB, NM I couldn’t say no! They were such a dream to work with and of course their children!! Adorable!
Before I offered the wildflower mini sessions to the public, I had to do a test shoot. I really recommend all photographers do this! How else are you going to know what light looks like at that particular location! Maysun and Alexa always pull through for me and I fell in love with the golden warm tones this location in Alamogordo, NM gave me!
It has been so long since I updated my blog. Back at the end of summer last year I was driving down the road and spotted the most amazing catch of yellow wild flowers! Now, you know if you live in Alamogordo New Mexico, seeing pretty flowers along the side of the road isn’t the norm! So of course I had to do some sessions there! These were super mini short notice sessions and oh my goodness! I think they are some of my favorite ever! I cant wait to offer these again next year!
