After the crazy wedding weekend in Denver, I stayed a few extra days to visit with Nate & Jill and their new baby, Geneva! There is absolutely no better way to spend the day than to listen to a baby laughing. Seriously! Together we documented their generational portraiture with four generations of women.
Geneva was literally putty in my hands and she loved loved loved my fish-eye lens. Jill and I had some time to kill on Sunday and so we just hung around the house. I quickly learned that the camera made little Geneva giggle and giggle and giggle… every time I pressed the shutter!! So, needless to say, there are now a lot of fish-eye images to edit down of the little bug. TOO cute!
It was also really nice to spend the time with Jill, since the last time I saw her was on their wedding day in 2006. So much to get caught up on! I quickly realized that she works for BikeColorado.org and that her office is full of bike shorts that they are trying to get rid of. In step I to lighten the burden! since I’ve been biking a lot this summer, I am in need of said shorts! Score! 2 pairs of shorts, 2 shirts, 2 skorts and one pair of shoes later, I’m wondering how the heck I’ll ever fit it all in my suitcase. Besides that, it was great to eat even more yummy Denver vegetarian food (Nate is a veg.!), including yet another trip to WaterCourse, this time for breakfast. We had dinner with Nate’s parents at some point and there was an attempt to make it to Casa Bonita, followed by a viewing of that South Park episode. Awesome. The highlight and reason for the trip was to take a 4 generation photo of the ladies in Jill’s family. Elder Geneva with new baby Geneva, as well as Jill and her mother, Gail. We really lucked out with a gorgeous over cast day and I was able to squeeze in a few of Nate, Jill and Geneva as well.
Man, what a great weekend with super old school (literally and figuratively) friends! And I swear, someone should bottle the sound of a baby giggling and just pipe it into all retail establishments… You can’t help but laugh too.
