dying

September 25, 2014

Too dramatic of a title? Sorry. Let me explain.

We have admired (and slightly obsessed) over Iris and Light‘s work for a long time. Words do not describe how excited we were when somehow our timing, schedules, and location worked out that and we were able to work together! Dying over this video, I tell you. DYING! Iris and Light is brilliant.

Hope you love it too :)

the british us

August 19, 2014

Over the next year, rather than hop hotels, we decided to rent a home in each country we visit. Because, let’s be real, we’re a big family and we don’t really fit in a hotel. Plus, we wanted a HOME, with rooms, and a kitchen, and all of that good stuff that homes have. The homes we have chosen to live in are as important to us as the new foods we will try, the sights we will see, and the experiences we will have. We may be nomads (of a sort) for the next year, but each home will be OUR home and we want to remember each and every one. To make that happen, we decided to photograph our family in each of the homes we rent…kind of a little peek into our daily life. Of course these images don’t show any bickering, dirty dishes, or little ones running around in their roos, because we all know that never happens around our house…ahem.

We (we being mostly me) are completely obsessed with the restored chapel we chose for our stay in England. This home (as were the other homes we’ll be staying in) was found on airbnb.com…our new best travel friend.

Smiths. Wellingore, England. July 2014-August 2014.

downtown family

August 18, 2014

In our mad rush from workshop to packing to goodbyes to finally getting to England, I have barely even mentioned our Salt Lake City workshop. It was so fun coming to our home state and teaching and meeting so many cool people. A few favorites from the gorgeous family who modeled at the workshop…

I’m in love with so many things about this engagement shoot. First, we were lucky enough to have our lives line up so that we could shoot this session while we were all in England. They were here for business for a few days during the same six weeks we were living in England, so we were thrilled we could schedule the session here. Two, all of these images were taken around and within a few blocks of our home, so you can get a peek of what our world looks like. And last, and most important, Andrew and Amanda were just so, so, so cool as I dragged them around my neighborhood. Super excited for their 2015 wedding!
