I first met Aaron & Chelsey 3 years ago while on a trip down to Havasupai Falls. My close friend from high school had invited us to go on the trip with this big group but they ended up not being able to make it. My girlfriend and I still chose to go on the trip with a bunch of people we had never met. It was an absolutely amazing trip, filled with absolutely amazing people. Aaron and Chelsey were newly married at the time, and the following year while on a guys trip to Escalante, Utah for some backpacking Aaron told me they were expecting. Their boy Weston is now 15 months old. I was stoked to be able to do their family photos at the Desert Botanical Gardens for them.
I shot two rolls of Kodak Portra 400 +1 for this shoot. Film is constantly pushing me to see light, and compositions better. I am super stoked with the way they turned out. This was my fourth time shooting film and I am absolutely loving it!
