Portraits: my niece, S
It's hard to believe, but my oldest niece is a senior in high school! We took time, during my recent trip to Albuquerque, to do some senior portraits. Thanks to my sister, R, for cheerfully driving us around to various pretty locations.
I got to see some areas of Albuquerque that I'd never been to (that I can recall). This was a really pretty winery called Casa Rondeña in Los Ranchos Village. I could've done the entire session here--there were lots of pretty photo spots.
Look at how pretty she is! And yes, her skin is that smooth.
A really pretty seating area with a pond. I'm sorry it's a little too blurry to see.. I was feeling kind of self-conscious taking pictures while people were out drinking wine (I didn't want to disturb their tranquility!), so I tried to be quick.
I did take a few building photos before we left, though.
Back to S. :) Here she is with her little sister, J, who tagged along. Maybe in ten years I can do her senior portraits, too! If I haven't forgotten everything.
Not the typical New Mexico scenery. I loved it here!
I meant to turn a couple photos black and white, but I liked the colors too much.
And we had to get photos with the balloons the next morning! I'm so glad we did, even though I'm sure S was pictured-out by then. Anyway, it was a perfect time of year for portraits and I had a good time. Thanks, S and R (and J!). :)
