Salt Lake

Early June we had a four hour layover in Salt Lake City on the way to see my sister in Washington. Lucky for us Summer and Crystalyn live in Salt Lake. So happy they took the time to pick us up for a small adventure to see the lake. It was SO good to see them and catch up. Fours hours didn't actually equal four hours but we did end up with about an hour together--a heck of a better option then sitting at the airport. In that time carved out a even smaller time to make a few photos. 

Summer and I pulled about 5 minutes out of our time together and paired the images. You can see our collaboration over at the 5 minute project blog. It was fun to see that even if we were shooting the same exact spots, the images turned out unique to each photographer yet work together to tell a story of our time together. Kinda fun.

I will be planning four hour layovers in Salt Lake again. xo

Turning 90

A little over a week ago my grandpa turned 90. On summer solstice. On father's day. It was a big day.

We spent a good portion of it with him and "his beautiful wife" as he would say. There is nothing like getting to just sit and visit with family. Nothing too fancy about the time spent, but the most important and lovely time there is. These two are so special to me and my family...so grateful for this time, this day and for him! 

And no there are not 90 candles on the cake, but they gave it a good try.

apple blossoms

Last month I visited my family in Washington and took about 20 minutes to photograph my niece Kenzie. Super glad we made the time as the apple blossoms were beautiful and it gave us images for graduation announcements. I am really growing to love photographing seniors. This one especially. xo

when friends visit

We were lucky when Deb and her family took a detour to spent some time in Southern California.  We had about 24 hours visiting, eating and drinking while the kids played. And played. And played. It's hard to believe how well they get along. Really they never see each other...once last year and then it was years before that. Anyway. It's just crazy how they get along and super fun to watch. And convenient. Gives us lots of time to catch up. I almost didn't get my camera out this weekend but so glad I did, even for just a bit. Love having these as a marker to this time they had together. Until next time...
