There were once two sisters who were not afraid of the dark because the dark was full of the other's voice across the room, because even when the night was thick and starless they walked home together from the river seeing who could last the longest without turning on her flashlight, not afraid because sometimes in the pitch of night they'd lie on their backs in the middle of the path and look up until the stars came back and when they did, they'd reach their arms up to touch them and did. - Jandy Nelson, The Sky Is Everywhere
Some people just can't resist a guy in a hat.
So much freaking love right here. We were walking back after this session when Jamie suddenly pounced on Lauren, and all was right with the world.
Happiness while snuggling on a picnic blanket with @isundberg looks like this.
Here's the print that the Martin family chose ... All the hugs and the loves are in this framed art over their couch in the living room! Also, go see the alternate take from yesterday ... which one do you like?
I wanna share a family portrait in Snow Canyon today. Meet the Martins ... This vibrant family from the Salt Lake City area was on their southern vacation and took an evening out for portraits, even though almost everyone had caught a bug. They powered thru, and the connection and love showed up as bright as can be! This image is an alternate take ... Mom and Dad chose a slightly different photo to be framed, and I installed it over their couch in the front room. Let me go and find the one they chose and show it you tomorrow!
The valley that feeds into Kolob reservoir, glowing with yellow leaves, was a bit ominous as a thunderstorm rolled in.
Today is anniversary #3 for Ingrid and me! (... plus quite a few years before that, but who's counting?) The path looks long and winding and beautiful from here. Thank you for being my 🦄 in life, @isundberg. 👫
One more of my friends, the Walker family, totally rocking it on a drizzly day in Cedar Breaks.
Way up on Cedar mountain, we played in a gentle rain with the Walker family and found the hills alive with wildflowers at 10000 feet.
The amazing, strong, and funny Walker sisters are also total hams. Pretty much, the game is to stare at each other and see who cracks first.
Everyone rallied 'round Jess + Jon with sparklers at their wedding reception, and the lawn of the Bit & Spur filled with togetherness and love. It was so easy to see how much their tight-knit friends and family care for each other.
