We Talked of JT.

  • by

I do know something about Justin Timberlake. Zach and I tried to listen to one of his songs from that new album I kept hearing about. Raves of its coolness somehow pushed through my little bubble of music knowledge. We tried. Now I wonder who was saying these good things. Humm. I think it was NPR.
Well, anyway, I have a general knowledge of what JT looks like and I subtly mentioned this to my friend pictured below. HE likes JT (and his uncle mentioned this nickname to me, so I am using it), so I was happy that I wasn’t too far off base. JT is a pretty stylin’ dude and a pretty all around talented guy, right? I think I saw him in some movie… that one about the guy who invented FB. He was good in that. But my friend here was way more fun to hang with than JT could ever be. Mostly because I will probably never hang with JT. I’m glad we were finally able to make it happen and I really, truly had a blast hangin’ with him and his mom for the evening. Thanks for making the trek up to the ‘hood.





Chickens, Boys and a Bun

  • by

While in So Cal I reconnected with these guys. They came up with a great way to incorporate their backyard chickens into their photographs. Last time I visited, I ooh-d and ahhh-d about all the cool things their little yard holds. Chickens, garden, fire pit. I’m sure there is more. Pretty much all you could ever want. I believe fish was briefly mentioned. That certainly would complete the backyard garden… I’m sure that won’t come for awhile since #3 just arrived the other day. That baby was ready. I saw all the signs. So glad she made it.






Our Road Trip

We headed to Cali in the van for our last summer hurrah. We stopped in St George for a night and before we packed ourselves back in the car, we did a little, tiny, skinny hike in the red rocks of St George. It always pays to hang with family… even ones you have never met (Zach’s cousin whom I had maybe met once a million years ago). Good times and a promise to do a summer camp out next year at Moab. Hopefully the stars align.
We even made it to Cali in time for Noah’s and the littlest Smith’s birthday celebration.StGeorgeCali

A Marriage in the Family

Zach’s baby bro is getting married in November. I got to photograph them while we visited in August. Feeling the love here. So awesome. Thanks to you both for sharing your happiness and excitement with me. I can’t wait to see these two get hitched.
