When Mireya reached out to me for a family session in the bosque area of Albuquerque I said YES immediately. I had recently photographed her two littles during a Easter Mini session and knew I wanted to work with her beautiful family again. Even though we had to initially reschedule due to unforeseen weather, we couldn't have had a more perfect session.
Their was slight cloud cover on this autumn evening and the temperature was comfortable (NM gets HOT!). We casually walked into the bosque along the trail with golden cottonwoods towering overhead as I captured candid moments of her, her husband and two children. Watching them looking at each other after watching their children run around, was a privilege. There was so much love between them and it shines through the family they have created.
One of the questions I had asked previous to the session was what did her and her future husband love to do. When she told me it was dancing, we put together a playlist to surprise Will with. After a few shots, I left these two dancing while I captured a few photos of their children in the fading, golden sunlight. We all came back to find them still dancing (so sweet!).
This family was an absolute joy to capture and I drove back home to Santa Fe feeling like I had just spent time with new friends.
