Ah, Summer Camp. This this is one of the faces I came home to yesterday . . .
My latest baby shoot was for the gorgeous Ella. This little one , beyond being beautiful, was so incredibly strong. At 1 month old, she would roll herself off the blanket on the floor, and even held her head up for me to take one of the cutest photographs I've ever taken. Take a peek at our shoot . . .
Take a good look, because it's rare you will see me in a photograph, but as my wife 'jokes', when I'm no longer around, my children will have no evidence that they had a father. So, I turned my camera (and pride) over to a family member to document a moment in my life that included me on the streets of San Francisco.
My family spoiled me yesterday with cards and gifts and lot of activities. We got to see an pre release screening of Monsters University at Pixar, and then off to the city for an "Urban Quest". A trek around an area in San Francisco (Washington Square) to find clues that will all lead us to solve a puzzle to figure out where we will be eating dinner. A reservation will be waiting for us, but we have to figure out what the restaurant is.
Thanks girls for a fun day.
On May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing a national Flag Day on June 14. Many Americans celebrate Flag Day by displaying the Red, White and Blue in front of homes and businesses.
Instead , we in my household celebrate something much more important. . .
my Father-in-Law's birthday.
Happy Birthday Kip.
Time is at once the most valuable and the most perishable of all our possessions.
As I looked through the viewfinder of my camera at my girls this morning, I had this wave come over me about how hard it is to fathom how much has happened our lives. Another last day of school, another year gone, another last picture. There are so many quotes about time, but this one spoke so much to me. This is the exact age I lost my dad (I was 9 and he was 42 . . ok, I'm 43 now). Time is constantly the most incredible concept for me, and to this day, I wish I had and endless supply.
Here are a few shots from a photo session I just did of the 1 day old Supermodel Darcy J. It's been a while since I've had babies this little and you forget just how small and fragile and dependent on you they are.
