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.

Ashley and Isaac × Piggies: Fall Portraits

Yes you read that right…piggies.

Before her mini-session Ashley asked if it was ok if they brought along their pigs for the shoot, to which I replied “that sounds like my dreams coming true”. It really was a blast and I love mixing things up. On top of that these two were amazing. Ashely is so sweet and hilarious, and her boy Isaac is a super cool little dude…way cooler than me actually. I mean check out that smile!

On a technical not, this was my first shoot with the “fujicron” line up of f2 lenses, the 23mm f2, 35mm f2, and the 50mm f2. They performed WAY better than I expected. I am sold on them for sure.

We will definitely be doing another round of mini-shoots this next fall so keep your eyes out. Slots go fast.
