Kids Camp. Prescott, Arizona

I recently spent a few days up in Prescott, Arizona at the UCYC camp. Last year I was there for a few hours to take pictures (you can see those here). This year I stayed a little longer to capture a bit more. This is the camp that I attended when I was in school and it will be the camp my kids go to starting next year. Basically, it’s the best camp in Arizona. You can rock climb, ride the screamer, go kayaking, hiking, zip-lining, swimming and much much more. I feel that all kids need to go to summer camp at least once. Character building happens at camp. Learning to work as a team happens at camp. And awesome memories happen at camp. Here are a few of my favorite moments:

Arizona in June and California too.

June always feels like the longest month for us. And this month seemed extra long with vacations and various day excursions. It was hot. And towards the end, humid. But fun (with a few “I’m bored!” thrown in there). We swim to stay cool. I went to California for a couple of days to photograph some events at CIY. CIY is a church camp called “Christ in Youth” for high school students. It was held at Biola Universtiy, which is a really beautiful campus. I also took a morning to myself at Newport Beach. Being alone at the beach sounded nice and relaxing at first. But it wasn’t long before I missed my kids and wished they could be at the beach with me. Anyway, here are a few highlights from June. I’m excited to see what July has in store.

Durango, Colorado

Every year we take an extended family vacation to San Diego, California. This year we decided to try something different and headed to Durango, Colorado. We couldn’t have gone at a better time as the temperatures in Phoenix were up in the 115 range, and the temperature in Durango was around a chilly 75. We fished and went horseback riding. We swam in the hot springs and visited a dude ranch. We hiked and searched for bigfoot. We even took a jeep tour up to tree line elevation and got to play in the snow. Colorado is a beautiful place – it almost looks like an oil painting with all it’s colors and gorgeous skies. It was a vacation that my children will never forget, and I’m so grateful that they got to experience it. Here are a few pictures and highlights from the trip:

May Favorites in Phoenix, Arizona

Some recent pictures from the month of May. You’ll see two re-occurring themes. First, our puppy Cody. I’m trying not to go overboard with pictures of him, but he just provides way too many opportunities. Also, I now have underwater housing for my camera. I’m very happy to finally have this capability, because summer in Arizona is not the most enjoyable time to photograph people. But now – it is so much fun. I love not having to worry about water, sand or rain. I’m so excited to explore this new area of photography. Here are just a few of my favorites from this month:
