I'm Cal Ta'Nous. I live in the sacred high desert of Taos, New Mexico with my husband and kitty. Photography & filmmaking is my love made visible. 

My true north as a photographer is seeing soul in all things. My work is inspired by a living connection to the Earth, accessible through the ethereal and honest imagery I create. In my art, I seek to remind people of the limitless love, power and wisdom that is within each of us. 

My mission as your photographer is to not only make beautiful, emotive and authentic imagery but to create a safe, comfortable and playful space for you to fully be seen as you are. From my many years of photographing humans, I know that when we allow our hearts to be seen, magic happens. And I'm so here for it. 



I’m so blown away by the photos I received from working with Cal! She truly captured my essence and it really brings out a magical element in my branding to be represented fully and authentically! Absolutely loved working with her sweet, playful energy and feeling grateful for such a genuine experience.

Calli is an amazing filmmaker! I found her to be intuitive, wise and very gifted in how she sees the world and her subject through her lens and translates that to her audience.

Cal is amazing! She took our engagement pictures. She made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire shoot and was just generally a joy to meet and be around. And the pictures. . . spectacular! She captured exactly what we were wanted and then some. We feel so lucky to have gotten an opportunity to work with her. HIGHLY recommend!
