i adore ‘special dates’ with my boys. and ‘special dates’ with dear friends. we combined the two this past weekend into a true fall adventure day.
and being my true-to-self-annoying photographer friend–i dragged the camera along and recorded our every move. (thankfully my best friend is at peace with my annoying ways and hardly rolled her eyes at me!) i am so glad i did bring along the camera as these are some of my favorite images of the entire year.
and, looking back at them as i type, i realize that this kind of photoshoot is my all-time favorite. why? because i am recording moments in time as they unfold. unscripted. practically unedited. natural. timeless. these photos are the result of fun memories. events recorded just as they happened. without staging. without anything planned. we were totally in the moment. (ok–i really wasn’t as i was taking the photos but everyone else was. i swear!)
i want to do more of this type of photography–more of these ‘in the moment’ sessions. if you’re interested-drop me a line.
until then–come on our sunday afternoon journey with us to the lovely denver art museum.
Two of my FAVORITE images of the boys. Ever..
Throwing some pots at the MUD EXHIBIT.
A RARE moment of brotherly love.
The boys hamming it up in front of the mirror in the costume room.
An abstract portrait of artists, friends and moms.
CASEY: “are you sure there’s no more Sprite in this can?”!.
OF COURSE we HAD to hit the hotdog stand on the street. Food was sorta scary but the photo op was too good to pass up.
The boys and those caps. Timeless. Priceless images.
Casey’s becoming my ‘ham’ whereas his brother used to be! It’s so funny to see the looks he comes up with these days.
These images look like a staged photo shoot but I swear it wasn’t We’d just gotten off of the lightrail at 16th and California and our friend brought her toy dog. She and Casey were so happy to be off of the train so they could play with it.!.
The iPhone camera was the perfect backup when my memory card filled up!.
The iPhone seems so much less intrusive and, well, just easier to ‘point and shoot’ (so to speak).
