We Love the Zoo

We had an exceptionally warm and beautiful weekend so we decided to get out of the house and head to the zoo. It is one of our favorite places and you will likely see a lot of photos from this place this year. The kids love the animals, but it is also just a beautiful place with lots of amazing plants and trees. As a family we just really love the zoo and we feel very blessed to live in a place like Denver that has such a cool zoo so close to home.

My camera ran out of batteries half-way through, but here are a few shots from our visit.


From the Archives: Christmas on the Contax

I have a family large backlog of film that I have never gotten developed sitting in my fridge. My plan is to develop one of these rolls everytime that I develop a current roll of film until I am completely caught up. It should be pretty fun seeing all these old pictures. As I develop them I will post them here in an ongoing "From the Archives" series. 

These photos are from right around Christmas this past year. River was only two months old and had so much more hair than she does now. Thus is one of the only rolls I shot on my Contax G1 before I sold it. I may have sold it too early. That camera was pretty awesome. If I hadn't of sold it I wouldn't have my F3 now though. I am pretty sure I won't give up my F3 for anything now.

These are photos of our great friends Matt and Carol that I took the night before they left to move back to PA. I sure do miss having them around. They became like family while they were here. 


I remember taking River downtown for the first time. We went to the Christmas market. I remember having a lot of fun this day. Downtown is super magical around Christmas time.

I Am Now an Apprentice at The Usual

Guys, I am now officially an apprentice at The Usual Barbershop in Denver! I am so stoked. Bridget and Jeremy are the best and I can't wait to learn from them over the next year. The shop is so friendly and feels like a family. It is exactly the kind of shop I want to work in someday. Ill be hanging out there for the next year so if you see me there say hi! I would love to meet you. 

A Trip to the Zoo

Courtney and I were both recently able to start getting Wednesdays off together. It is really good for us. It is the first time in a long time we have had an entire day off together every week. We decided right away that we wanted to be very intentional about these days and make sure to get out and do stuff. Last week we went to the Zoo and it was so fun. Today we are headed to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
