I can see your halo

I wasn't thrilled with the last ones so I reshot it. 

Much better.

Tintypes *sigh*

This was one of the most enjoyable days of my life.
All day photographing with friends.   Historic process.  Yeah, doesn't get any better.




(the ghost of me).   
All our prints were failures.  The image turned to dust and rubbed right off. 
No biggie.  We're doing it again.





(I will have a tintype portrait hanging in my home.  That's one for the bucket list)
 



Hey, John.  Haven't seen him in years.

And because I can see their halos.........

 



Adults are so much easier to work with.  Love these!
 

 
 
This is my favorite one from the whole day.

Family picture time (blues and greys)





 
 
My Pinterest board inspiration was a lot more bold and bright, but this is where we ended up.  I like it even more. 
 
 
 

The good report

1.  Much needed hair cut has me feeling sassy.
2.  E is really walking around.
3.  Beautiful music to my ears.  On repeat for hours on end.
4.  Sunday dinner of crab cakes, shrimp, and salmon.  Fabulous eats make me happy.
5.  The girls went to their classes without crying and begging for me.  Hooray.
6.  Jeffy is off work all week.  We'll be getting stuff done and having some fun.
7.  Our family picture wardrobe is coming together beautifully.  Lovely and subtle.
8.  Alisha is moving to Springville. 
9.  Saturday swim is awesome.  Not as jam packed as it usually is. 
11.  Great Sunday meetings.

The good report

1.  Had a great time with all our family in town. 
2.  The fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.  It's just so summery and awesome.
3.  Leaving early from Gayle's party to beat the traffic was a good move to get our exhausted littles home. 
4.  It's so cool to see the girls having so much fun with everyone.
5.  600 glow sticks.  A beautiful sight.
6.  It wasn't as cramped as I expected having Nate and Ash stay with us.
7.  Watching M and Abby play together all the time was heartwarming. 
8.  I love little girls. 
9.  Geocaching.  All four families.  That was an adventure.
10.  Not letting slight fear of caves, tight spaces win.  That's right Em, Renae and I crawled in the cave!
11.  The girls never once seemed nervous or scared on a hike that was bordering on treacherous for littles.  So surprising to me.
12.  All around exhausting, good times.
13.  A full day of photography and friends and light.
14.  Even hung out with John Telford who I haven't seen in like a decade.
15.  Tintypes are fascinating.  All failures, but it really didn't matter. 
15.  Travis is a very generous photographer.  (Not all of them are)
16.  First time on UVU campus after all these years living here. 
17.  Friends introduced me to Cubby's in Provo.  That is goooooood.  And a beautiful space to top it off. 
18.  A found halo.
19.  Friends are way more cooperative being photographed than my children. ;)
20.  Emily watching the girls all day so I could be there for it all.
