These photos are a part of my ongoing attempt to capture one good portrait of every member of my family, every month, forever. All of these were taken during our vacation at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.

A Day at the Denver Zoo

The Denver Zoo is one of our most favorite place in the entire city.

 

It might be because we have kids, but I don’t think so. We totally would go to the zoo regularly when it was just the two of us. There is just something about it.

We both love animals a lot, which is obviously a big part of it, but it is also just a really beautiful place. There is amazing plants and trees everywhere and it really just feels like a little natural oasis in the middle of the city. Having a pass is also definitely the way to go. It completely takes the stress away. We can go for a couple hours on a Sunday morning just to see a few things, and not feel bad leaving before nap time. It is one of our favorite Sunday activities and we are there probably twice a month.

Anyways…these photos are from our last trip to the zoo and what a fun day it was. We asked everybody what animals they wanted to see that day and we managed to squeeze all of them in. I am already excited for out next trip.

My Family

You know the phrase "A plumbers pipes are always leaking"? I have found that to be true as a photographer as well.

I am a huge proponent of family pictures, but am so busy that I often am not good about making sure we have pictures of our own family. A couple weeks ago we decided to skip to church and head to the mountains. It was a foggy and rainy morning, which is pretty rare here, but oddly me and my wife LOVE this weather. We brought the camera and my father-in-law and I were able to capture some beautiful photos of my family. It was so refreshing and fun and I am so glad to have these memories captured. We will be doing this more in the future for sure.

Monthly Portraits

My favorite photo project I have right now, because it is very personal, is capturing at least one good photo of my children every month. It is so fun to see their growth over time. These are the two photos for January 2018. Links to the full galleries are at the end of this post.
