we planned to do william's newborn photos, but as many new parents can agree, priorities get switched around. and things don't go according to plan. the baby makes the plans and runs the show. i wanted him to fall asleep so i could pose him, but he wasn't in the mood for sleeping. will was awake and alert but that didn't stop his mom and i from putting adorable etsy hats on his head.
i worked at an ice rink in high school. it was the best job. i was taking a photography class at the time.* we used 35 mm cameras and developed the film in a dark room. i noticed how neat the ice looked at sunset with the blade marks from ice skates. i can't find that print, so i recreated it. i'm trying to pay attention to the pretty things this winter to keep my spirits up. join me!
* fun fact! it's the only photography class i have taken (besides workshops)
another beautiful autumn shoot at minnehaha falls park. we had to pass through a halloween parade to get to the falls. there was a giant wolf puppet thing that creeped us all out. after the falls, sarah had the idea to go down by the river where she goes running. it was perfect.
