Even though our original location for this session had to be scratched, this family took some beautiful portraits! The sunset over Artesia was so lovely and I had such a fun time using the light to illuminate this sweet family.
Candace is one of my husband's cousins. Her kids are growing so fast and it just amazes me! She first had the idea to get some portraits done in Cloudcroft, NM where her dad has a cabin. We had the date set for my very last day in New Mexico. I was so excited because I had passed through Cloudcroft a few days prior and there was still snow on the ground. So, the day of the session came and a little snow storm hit the mountains which means it was not family photo weather! We settled on using various spots around Artesia, including one of my favorite open fields and a nice rustic barn that Candace found!
Enjoy a peek into the session!
