I really enjoy getting a good photograph- and I think I got two excellent ones. My dad, one of the most hard working and enthusiastic people I know, and our ridiculously immature and somewhat foolish black Labrador together.
Tonight, I’m going to the fair. The fair is a zoo of people- and I’m excited to photograph them.
My sister always turns out to be a source of inspiration. She’s fiesty, wicked smart, incredibly beautiful, and she always gives of this feeling of adventure. My sister has, and will always be, one of my best friends that I will ever have. As a result, I’ve photographed her quite a bit over the last few years. Here are some of my favorite shots of her, attitude and aesthetics and all.
Even more that that, my sister is my sort of muse. She seems impervious to cynicism, and she has such a vibrant view of the world, and sees so many possibilities in life. She’s not only insanely gorgeous, but she is also one of the most charismatic beings that exists.
I am so excited to see my family again! There are a lot of things happening right now, and not all of them marvelous, so focusing on the best thing is the most one can do. The best thing for me is my family.
I’m especially excited to have intense debates with my dad. We are both very loud (I wasn’t born with an inside voice) and usually dinner turns into us “discussing” with Mom and Emily just groaning as our food gets cold.
I get to hug my Mom. This is such a cheesy post, but seriously, I’m so close with my family. Being abroad for the better part of 2 years hasn’t changed that.
My grandparents are coming up for Em’s graduation in June! AH! This photograph was taken sometime in the early 70’s, I’m guessing.
My grandfather and I like discussing cars. I think maybe, since he’s got 4 granddaughters, it’s nice to discuss something other than what the other three do. I think we’re going to make a trip to a car museum in Deerlodge one day!
The more I look at old photographs, the more I realize how awesome my youth was. We were constantly either travelling around the States or camping or canoeing- we weren’t a very languishing family. My parents prioritized travel and being outside, which I truly think is extremely important. Even though we didn’t stay in luxury hotels or go anywhere international, I’ve done some amazing things that no 5-star resort or international trip can give you- like realizing how to paddle a canoe, or knowing how to track animals, or start a campfire, or how much you can stand each other on 16-hour car rides. Or even how awesome it is that your parents allow you to just go and play in the mud and catch snakes and frogs.
Family! I see you May 15th!
My family is pretty awesome.
