In a few short hours this beautiful momma will be welcoming her sweet baby boy into the world! Lindsay has a sweet spot in my heart and the two of us have had lots of laughs and adventures together, so excited for this next adventure with you!
This past month, I was privledged enough to spend a month in CO with people that I grew to love. It’s always hard when I post about people who are dear to my heart, in this case, people who quickly became my family while I was out there. It’s hard to post about people I care about because I can’t ever seem to find the right words- probably why I’m a photographer and not a writer. In similar fashion, I’m going to keep it that way, posting pictures and not words. Just know as you look through these next few ridiculously long blog posts that these faces aren’t just faces… each face has a special place in my heart.
Stay tuned, there truly is so much more…
Rachael & Johnny, thanks for an awesome day in Savannah! We had a blast!
literally giddy with excitement to show you the rest of the images from Ashley & Johns big day!
our hike started out awesome.
this is the lake we started hiking from.
after a little while we hiked through this pass.
and then we stopped here for lunch.
we moved on towards the ruins where we would be stopping to set camp. it was GORGEOUS along the way.
we made it to the ruins (and in good time too!)
we then hiked to find a good place to camp.
this place was AWESOME. it was so lush and beautiful and right in the valley.
Little did we know what was ahead of us. we camped out that night ate ramen and played uno and went to bed early so we could rest up for our 15 mile hike the next day. We would be hiking all the way back to Cusco. About one mile into our hike it started to rain, and persisted for another 2 or 3 hours, at one point it even started to hail. We were in the middle of nowhere (maybe saw 2 other peruvians the entire 15 miles) and we didn’t really have anyway to “quit” we trekked on, got chased by a crazy dog, made some wrong turns through some peruvians llamas, bulls, and flower patches, but made it to cuzco in record time! This was the glorious sight we crossed over the mountain to:
crockett and I sang “hallelujah” the whole way over the mountain and ran towards cuzco, we actually made it home, we really doubted we were gunna make it there for a while!
Today we’re off to do some sight seeing and then thursday Machu Picchu! catch ya later!
today was awesome. we rode horses through the sacred valley with this sweet man and his adorable son, he gave us zero instructions whatsoever he put us on our horses and off we went:
then we arrived at salineras! salt ponds that were made over 700 years ago. the salt was SO good! this is the source of salt for all of the Cuzco area.
so salty and so good. it was HEAVEN for crockett!
we’re off on a 2 day hike! buenas noches!
thus far I have held a baby llamb:
ate cuy (pronounced qui) which is a delicacy in Peru… Guinea Pig. Needless to say it was an adventure. Note our faces below:
and we visited Tipon and saw the ruins, it was pretty incredible.
Now we’re relaxing at the house before we head into town to watch the Carolina Duke Game with the locals… GO HEELS!
