Baby Banner &hearts

by Ben

So, on March 9th, our good friends Jared and Kristen had their their first baby; a beautiful girl named Banner. They didn't get to come snowshoeing last weekend with us and mutual friends Travis and Laura, so we decided to make a little note for Banner in the fresh powder on a frozen pond.

Yesterday, Travis, Laura, Genny and I spent some time in Denver trying to mutually expand our photo skills. Afterwards, we all headed over to Jared and Kristen's house to have dinner together. But before dinner was to be served, Banner needed to go on her nightly walk. Here are some photos of us and the walk.

Funny Photos

by Genny
Now that Ben's back from his trip, we've got lots of photo talk going on in this house again, and fun photo experiments. The first set is from Wednesday, long shutter speed with multiple flashes... Wow, look how many of me we can make!

Then on Thursday we had friends over and continued with the slow shutter speeds. Bryan's very patient to listen to so much talk about cameras and photo business all the time. So above, Bryan, with a long shutter, taken by Jeff? Next Travis moved the camera at the same speed as Ben's hands to create these photos.

Travis wrote Laura a love note, and then Laura drew Travis a dog to walk. In case you're wondering, it's a lab. Then I drew Laura a giraffe and she hugged it, and I painted a cowboy costume on Jeff. Then it was Travis's turn and he made Jeff speed along on a motorcycle. To end the night, Laura made me into a diver with a fish. Ben was behind the camera for most of these light painting scenes. He sure is a talented photographer.
