New Mexico

I recently returned from a trip to New Mexico. I went to do some one-on-one mentoring for another photographer who is just getting her business really up and and running. But in addition to the 2 days of mentoring, we added 6 days of hanging out and having fun. Which for photographers means we logged a lot of hours in her Suburban, foregoing food, sleep, and family in the pursuit of photographs. We covered pretty much all of south-central New Mexico, from El Paso, TX, to Ruidoso, Roswell, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Alamagordo, and White Sands. Like I said, we logged a LOT of miles/hours in her Suburban!

But oh, was it worth it! We found charming little chapels, wild Mustangs, snow-capped mountains, sculpted canyons, beautiful flowers, snowy egrets, windmills, cemeteries, markets, and even managed to attend the Gathering of Nations Pow Wow!

I returned home exhausted and satisfied.

Here are some of my favorite images, and more are on Facebook. Soon, I hope to have the images for sale on my website.

Yesterday afternoon, I met Grace and her mom Anne to create Grace's senior portraits. We started with a studio setup to capture the traditional formal drape shot. Then we headed to historic downtown Franklin and the town square for the fun stuff!

Grace is beautiful and outgoing, and not at all shy in front of a camera. We had a wonderful time wandering around and finding little places to shoot. Working with them was a pleasure, and I hope they love these images as much as I loved creating them!
