Feeling grateful

It’s Sunday, and Amy’s taking a nap. It’s not often she can squeeze a nap into her day but the baby’s asleep, so that makes it easier. I think the other two boys went outside, somewhere. There was a time when they were little when we wanted to know exactly where they were at all times, but now, they just say goodbye and we say, come home for dinner, and they always do.

I was out of town last week (Cancun) and I’ll be out of town next week (Cape Cod) and it’s really nice to have this sunny Sunday at home. Traveling is a double edge sword for me. I love going places and that’s one of my favorite things about this job, traveling. On the other hand, I miss Amy and the boys when I’m gone and I know it’s hard on Amy when I’m not around to help. Last month I stood at the remarkable site of Machu Picchu and couldn’t help but think it would have been more enjoyable if Amy had been with me.

This year so far, all work related, I’ve been to California twice, Las Vegas, Haiti, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Peru. It’s my first time going to Peru and Puerto Rico, but the other places, I’ve been before. Third time to Haiti, second time to the Dominican Republic. In April I had a wedding in the DR, but stuck around for three days and headed to a beautiful town called Las Terranas with my friends Gheen and Beth Hillman. Lots of relaxation on the beach, but the best part about that trip was swimming in the El Limon waterfall. Last week I was in Cancun for a wedding and while I was there, went parasailing for the first time. $60 well spend, I say.

A couple days ago we had our first Rooftop Concert of the season. We’re having 4 shows instead of 6 this year. Earlier in the year, Sarah, Courtney and I decided we would quit. We got together and said we’re done putting on these shows. Courtney told the mayor we’re through, and he talked her back into it and she talked us back into it. After Friday night’s concert, I’m glad we’re back in.

The boys just came back inside the house and just woke up the baby. There’s a lot of things about this world I just don’t know (how to speak Russian, how salmon can figure out how to return to where they were born in order to spawn), but one of the biggest mysteries is why on earth my older boys can’t remember to keep quiet when the baby is asleep.

May in Provo was the most rainy May on record. But now, sunny days seem to have finally made their way to this part of the county. Today, right now, the sun is shining and it feels so good. I love the sun. I love sunny days. I love today.

New York has always been one of my favorite places to travel to and it is even better when I get to photograph wonderful people in love. Here are images from Kate and Nick’s NYC engagement session. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding on Cape Cod in June!

Earlier on the blog I posted their engagement pictures, and now, their wedding. Hayden and Tarryn are so much fun! I’m so glad I was there to capture their Salt Lake City wedding and Provo reception. (Sidenote- I’ve known Hayden’s family since 2010 when Hayden’s sister, Ashley, came to work in my office.)

Meet Hayden and Tarryn.

I absolutely love it when I get the chance to travel outside of Utah to photograph couples weddings, so I was so happy to go to San Antonio for Sean and Lisa’s wedding.

Here’s what I did yesterday. This is my fourth year, now, taking self portraits on my birthday. The same number of self portraits as my age. This year, I’m 47, so, here are 47 self portraits.

Well, that does it. 47 years old. 47 self portraits. It’s been a great day. I’ll probably do this again next year. Someone suggested I do it until I’m 90. Well, we’ll see. One year at a time.

This is a huge post with photographs from a busy year.

In addition to the work I did in Utah (headshots, weddings, family portraits, corporate work), I photographed weddings in California, Texas and New York. I went to Mexico City for family portraits and to Gilmer, Texas, for a client-turned-friend to make a portrait of the town where she grew up. I traveled to Washington, DC, with Amy to make a series of portraits for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

I’ve photographed a variety of people in a variety of settings–in homes, in hometowns, in my studio, in the canyon, in the city, on the occasion of adoptions and weddings and new babies and long lost siblings reuniting. I believe all these photographs have one thing in common. I believe all these photographs will become more valuable over time as the people in them age, as circumstances change, and life goes marching forward and these photographs represent a moment that happened, once, in 2014.
Some exciting travel is cooking up for 2015–Mexico, Haiti, Cape Cod, New York, California–and I hope that it will include me photographing you, in your town or in mine, or anywhere in between.
