Jack Turns One02.21.14

greenapplephotography_0001_jacksbirthday

My silly Jack. We love you to bits and pieces. It’s been a few months since your party, but I wanted to tell you how much I love you and special you are to our family. It’s been enlightening and exciting to see the ways you are your own unique self. You are such a happy sleeper and eater, and will eat almost anything. Risotto? Sure! Salmon? Bring it on. You are like your Dad, in that when you are tired, you are ready for bed, coming up to us and saying, “nigh, nigh, baba.” You have a cute little bow-legged walk, and an iron fisted grip. Candy, dogs, hugs and kisses, and being outside as much as you can, make you happy. In the morning when we ask you where Lucy is, you climb into her bed, saying “Shhshhh” (Lucy.) She wakes up to you kissing her face. You are very silly, love to laugh, be chased, tickled and wrestled, and you give the best, big, open-mouth kisses. And if ever there was a busy baby, you are it. No cupboard is left unscathed, no toliet seat unclimbed. Your favorite is to either push things down something else, or collect items and drag them around. I have tallied your attention span, which clocks in around 10 seconds. You idolize your big sister, and Lucy looks out for you, and wont let anyone take a thing away from you. She willingly gives up her toys, and says, and will get in the face of anyone who makes you sad. We couldn’t imagine life without our busy, happy, silly boy!
We love you Jack Jack! Happy 1st Birthday!

Scott always knows around birthday time, I get super excited, and so it was with Jack’s birthday. I like to think I scaled back with a cereal bar for the food, and purchasing a cake. I definitely utilized the internet when researching the party, purchased some printables, and found inspiration for the Photobooth (which was done much more successfully than mine (note: use backdrop paper next time. Next time? hahaha.) My favorite part was the Super Hero Games. Scott did the training, which involved; a secret identity relay, super hero pose holding, and jumping over buildings. It was so cute to see how excited the kids were. They totally got into it! Jack was a little over whelmed, but he warmed up when we brought out the cake! We rented my friend Sarah’s studio, which was such a great space! It was such a great day, and we were so happy to have our family around us to celebrate Jack’s special day!

Love Elements Trompe l’oiel ~ floral pattern, dahlias, strawberries02.20.14

greenapplephotography_0001_love_elements_pattern

For the latest installation of our Love Elements series, Allison, of Late Fete, and I wanted something simple, happy, and bright! It’s this time of winter when Spring might technically be closer, but it feels very, very far away. We thought it would be fun to play with color and pattern, and the results are so shiny and colorful. It makes my heart sing, to see such happy colors.

From Allison, “This is that time of year where we long for the warmth of sun on our faces, flowers as far as the eyes can see, juicy strawberries and color – lots of it! We truly believe, as Audrey Hepburn said, “happy girls are the prettiest girls” and this was the case with our beautiful and sweet model Alex Pynes. She embodies happiness. For this collaboration, we wanted to do a “trompe l’oie”and layer fabric and bright floral together because really sometimes we are surprised by a love that has been there all along, right in front or our eyes.”

I think I love these pictures even more, knowing that it was snowing and freezing, hahaha! And we made a last minute background change, literally 5 minutes before the shoot. The best laid plans…

A beautiful wedding, with beautiful people, that makes me completely excited for Spring! I think this is fitting right before Valentine’s Day. Lots of love right here.

And here is where I met future, amazing friend, Allison Baddley. My jaw dropped when I walked in and saw the hanging terrariums. Unreal!

Mallory and Josh | Utah Maternity01.08.14

greenapplephotography_0001_maternity

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest and the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy:
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

-Kahlil Gibran The Prophet

Green Apple Photography 2013 Highlights01.02.14

greenapplephotography_0001_BESTOF

2013, I will remember you as the year of no sleep! The year I had a newborn, the year we lost Ollie, the year that challenged me in ways unexpected. The year of evaluation and soul searching, of making new friends, and stretching my shy self a bit. I have never done one of these 2013 photo recaps, and after several hours of working on this, I know why! It exposes one of my greatest photography weaknesses…editing! How do I choose a favorite, one favorite from each wedding, session, family? Obviously, I couldn’t do it. Sometimes I just couldn’t pick a favorite, and had to do two, or three. But I sure did try to keep this short. It’s a little bit fascinating to look back over these. I remember each session, for where Jack was growing, how he was sleeping, what the weather was like. All of my clients have become part of my collective conscience. Nina and Landon, I’ll never forget flying to your wedding, with my 6 week-old, and three bags of luggage to contain all he needed! That after your absolutely beautiful day, I came out to the car, and my family was waiting for me there, and Jack hungry! I’ll never forget that it rained at every single one of Katie and Chris’s three events. Crazy, torrential rain, that didn’t stop them one little bit, and their day was unexpected, and adventurous and perfect. How I photographed Mallory in the early stages of Spring, and then, 9 months later, again, right before her perfect boy made his way to her and officially changed everything for the better. I remember shooting Mari and Blake’s wedding three years ago, and their perfect newborn just recently, but also, how they modeled for me 18 months ago, with their first newborn in tow. How I knew Elyse when she was growing up, and Alex and Blake, when Lucy was 9 months, along for the ride in Idaho Falls. Life keeps moving on, and I’m so grateful for that one little part of it I get to share with you. You truly become a part of my life, and I’m grateful for the beautiful moments that are opened up to me through knowing you.

Here’s to a wonderful 2014. One with maybe a little more sleep, and just as much love. Happy New Year’s!
