One thing I think we photographers know more than anyone, is how fleeting each moment really is. Photographs present a gentle opportunity to transport us back to some very special, and unique moments. Kind of like time travel.
So, when Cody and I started planning our trip over New Years to Phoenix, I knew I was going to need to bring a camera and document as much of it as possible. It's not all "picture perfect" (I know, a little ironic coming from a Professional Photographer).
We made a point to try to catch every sunset possible on the trip. A little cheesy. But my favorite thing to do on vacations.
But, anywho, I'm excited to nostalgically look back on this first trip for the two of us.
New Years Eve Eve and Eve
Here's his cute face when I finally landed and got to see him for the first time in a few weeks.
New Years Day
This is my friend, Bryn. She's an absolute warrior of a woman and an incredibly sensitive soul. And has the most genuine, and pure heart I've ever met. She's the most talkative person I know. She's also an amazing listener. We both get pretty winded pretty fast when hiking. Which, to me is hilarious because she really can talk nonstop without breathing breaks. You'd think it wouldn't affect her.
I've known Bryn for about 6? years now. And 4 of those we've lived in separate states. I was so happy to spend time with her while I was in town. We were both Art majors in college, which is how we met. So, naturally, while in town we had to go to the art spots and pretend to be instagram influensters.
