family moments | Santa Fe, NM Family and Children’s Photographer

Almost a year ago, I made a friend at a park of all places (if you know me, you know I’m not the super-most outgoing type unless I need to be) ;) at a time when she and I both a needed  friend…  A couple of weekends ago, I had the privilege of making some family portraits for her family—just in time for all the snow in the Sangre de Cristos…  :)  I had been in the exact same location two days earlier for a senior session, but the look was 100% different, since by Saturday a good 6-8″ of snow had fallen!

We talked earlier that day about the possibility of postponing or relocating their session; but we all decided to just go with the flow and make it work!  I think the resulting images are fun and capture a true sense of their family.  You can’t help but be spontaneous when your son keeps throwing snowballs at you on the sly.  :)

Overall our plan of action was just to have a good time, let the kids play around a little bit, and take some great images of their family; and I think we succeeded!

During the session, Jamie said something to the effect of “sometimes the unexpected circumstances make for the best photos.”  These circumstances were certainly unexpected, but they also showcase some great family moments!

Thanks again to all of you for the opportunity to photograph your family!  I hope the portraits bring back great memories for years to come!!
