a few months ago we had our pictures taken. we were able to squeeze them in one of our short trips to utah. grant's friend kristopher took them and did an amazing job. i've wanted him to take our pics forever. i love the feeling his pictures have, he only shoots in film. you can see his work here. while i knew we were going to get them done, i was rushed when packing and i feel like grant and i both just threw in a bunch of stuff and hoped we could pull something together. looking back i wish i would have put more thought into our outfits but oh well. on top of that, we were actually a bit bummed after we had them taken because trudy was just not herself. she was cold and drooling everywhere and trying to chomp on anything she could get her hands on. it seemed that was the only thing on her mind. we wish we could see more of her personality in these but i guess it's okay since i have a photo shoot with her every day;) at one point during the shoot she was trying to latch on and convinced herself she needed to eat (even though she just had). we tried ignoring it and just playing with her but she wasn't having it. so i had to go sit and feed her. i was somewhat stressed because there is only a short window of time for good lighting, especially when you aren't doing digital pics! kristopher took a few of her and i during this and i think they turned out to be my favorite. there were things that didn't go the way we thought but the pictures still turned out. i guess that's how you know you have a good photographer! oh and utah is so pretty in the fall.
