    A vacation photo session in Santa Fe

    As Spring arrives in Santa Fe, let’s revisit a chillier time late last year, when I did a family shoot in the heart of Santa Fe.

    Just before Christmas I had the pleasure of photographing Melissa, Jeff and their 4-year-old son Jackson while they were in town for a holiday break.

    Visiting from Houston, they were enjoying the snow and wanted family photographs that also showed something of Santa Fe in the winter.

    We we met up at the casita they were renting, and planned to walk around downtown.

    I’d planned a loose route, and had taken some sketch photographs in a range of places way the route to check for tidy backgrounds, and to see where the light would be at that time in the afternoon.

    Jackson was in good form, and very willing to run around and throw snowballs as requested.

    I love showing people around my adopted hometown. As we walked, we talked a little about the town’s history, and life in Santa Fe now. Before we’d met up, I’d also made some recommendations on places to eat and sights to check out during their visit.

    We concluded the stroll in Ecco on Marcy Street with some reviving hot drinks.

     Planning a visit to Santa Fe?

    A vacation can be a great time to get photographs taken, whether you want to remember your trip to New Mexico, or just take the opportunity of having everyone all together to update your family photos. For keen photographers, I also offer custom photowalks, which combine some history and sightseeing with as much technical coaching and advice as you’d like.
