Happy Graduation to a great girl with a personality as radiant as her eyes…if you can believe it.
Best wishes in all you pursue. I have loved getting to know you this year. Thank you for having me take your photos-only you can rock a ranch photo shoot in heels AND barefoot:)
It was a first trip to the ranch for some and the 34th for others. This group of gentleman have been appreciating the beauty of Vermejo for generations and this year was no exception. Their love of fishing was not in the least bit dampened by the rocky mountain spring weather. They fished in blowing snow and crowded around the dinner table each evening for libations and laughs.
Thank you to each of you for being so kind to let me join in on your fun. See you next year!
On a solo trek through New Mexico, Shinkai ended her route in the snowy terrain of Vermejo Park Ranch. Originally traveling from Washington and seeking the full experience, Shinkai did not limit herself with the weather provided. Fishing in sleeting snow? Why not? By day she learned how to fly fish, catching jumping Brook trout from the flowing streams. She scaled a large mountain just to simply inhale the serenity from its peak. After each sunset, the fresh flavors of the Southwest blended with creative wild game dishes were savored followed by conversations with guests from around the world. Full experience? I’d say so.
It was lovely getting to know you. You made a cold, wet morning enjoyable- even covered in mud. Thank you for reaching out to have me take some photos for your next venture. Hope our paths cross again some day soon!
An early morning is always worth this kind of excitement
Big thanks to the whole crew for giving me such a great experience. I truly LOVED every fast, smelly, wonderful minute.
