Maternity and Newborn Portraits


Maternity and Newborn







Here at Creative Portraits by Dolores we're experimenting with a new technology that is an incredible new tool that can take any still image and animate it into a beautiful looping GIF or video file.  Check it out!

We're also reminding our mothers-to-be that a Maternity and/or Newborn portrait session is a wonderful way to capture a very special time in their lives and keep it dear forever.  Here are some examples of recent Maternity shoots we've done.

Great Venues Make Beautiful Portraits.  Albuquerque Offers Some Beautiful Venues.





Casas de Suenos Old Town Historic Inn

With warm historic charm, this venue creates the perfect setting for a truly talented photographer.  As you can see from this portrait, Dolores has taken the warmth of the adobe and combined the colors produced by the tree blossoms, the Brides bouquet and the newly weds love for each other to produce one of many lovely portraits.  Casas de Suenos is just one of many beautiful venues in the Albuquerque area.  


The Engagement Session

Cases de Suenos makes a great place for the engagement session as well. Your engagement is a very special time in your life and we want to capture these moments forever. That’s why we place special emphasis on these moments, to capture and celebrate the emotions that are so special and unique when you've said "I do".  Whether your engagement session is out in the great outdoors or in the studio, we'll make these memories special.





The Black & White 

Sometimes the image in the tones of Blacks, Grays & Whites tell the story better than its colorized brethren.  Dolores will give you a variety  of options when a black and white or brownish tones of a sepia image offer a strong alternative to the average portrait.




Look for Originality

Dolores's talent doesn't stop with the venue or the camera settings.  Her originality and eye for detail creates a portrait so unique, there will never be another like it.  Look closely at this portrait.  Can you see the difference   With Creative Portraits by Dolores, your portraits will be completely original.

Noreen and Patrick's Santa Fe Theme Wedding

A fairy tale theme wedding with Aladdin as the theme.  This was definitely one of the funnest weddings I've had the pleasure to photograph.  A two day event in Santa Fe with an evening wedding ceremony reception at the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe Golf Course 


Then culminating the next day with a beautiful full on reception at the Lodge at Santa Fe with great music, food and belly dancers! 



The Aladdin theme was a beautiful touch..

Creative Portraits by Dolores; In the Beginning

About eleven years ago, Dolores decided she wanted to share her love of photography with fellow pet lovers.  Being the happy owner of a Pug by the name of Mugsey, she took her cameras, and a mobile studio that encompassed some lighting equipment and a few backdrops, to the annual Pug Party;  a get together of like minded Pug owners sponsored by the local Pug Rescue,  and offered Pug Portraits to all that came.  Thus was the beginning of Mugshots and Pawprints, a mobile portrait studio for pets.  But it didn't stop there.
Mugsey was blind in one eye. 
Lola...She was a Showgirl
Roxie was a Rescue Pug

Dolores wanted to continue doing what she loved and expanded the little business into what is known today as Creative Portraits by Dolores.  These days Dolores enjoys capturing some very special weddings around Albuquerque and surrounding areas such as Los Lunas, Belen and Santa Fe and building strong relationships with those brides and their families at the same time. These relationships have matured and led to further portraits sessions as their families grew.  Maternity and newborn portraits which led to small family shoots.  Its all been so gratifying to watch the portrait studio grow.
