You should probably know that we got some new photos taken yesterday and (oh know you didn't!) we dressed in denim.
Oh yes, we did.
I tried to keep a straight face, and it almost worked, right up until the moment Hum attempted the Lagoon lovin' booty shot.
Utah has an amusement park. We're cool, we're hip. It's called Lagoon. Going to Lagoon is like going to Disneyland - but it's a lot less cool and almost as expensive. You gotta try it! Going to Lagoon was interesting for a couple of reasons. First, there were roller coaster, bumper cars, and games - oh my! Second, there were couples lovin' on each other like it ain't no thang. I learned this back pocket booty lovin' stance as a kid and it is what Hum and I refer to as "Lagoon lovin". It's perfect when you're waiting in a long line to ride the White Roller coaster one more time, still hoping it doesn't collapse on you. For another version of this technique, feel free to try "mobile Lagoon lovin'". To do so you stand side by side, the partner on the left puts their right hand in the others left back pocket and the partner on the right mirrors the same idea and goes for the the right pocket. This stance is perfect when you need to walk (and not waddle) to your next location.
>> The only photographer who might put up with this nonsense? Our wonderfully talented friend, Justin Hackworth. More to come about that - he's great. Provoites - you've gotta come to his 30 Strangers show reception this Thursday night at BYU! See you there.
>> The denim was Hum's idea, 100%. He texted this photo to me during church for inspiration. This is so weird on so many levels. Is there a parent in the mix? Kids? How old are they? I'm confused. And why was he thinking about denim portraits during church, anyway?
>> I got my hair color freshened up and it looks, um, wowza, very red in these photos. I blame it on the denim.
>> My family has a couple of good denim photos. Did yours? Oh the joys of growing up in the 90's!
