OK let’s break down what would be a long post of pictures taken around the Notre Dame Cathedral into a few posts.
We’ll start with the pictures that were taken when we first got there. In front of the cathedral in the Plaza area and then as we walked toward the back. Later I’ll post the pictures from the park in the back and then after that a special series of pictures taken at a random red door of the Cathedral.
Then we’ll move onto the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower at night to finish it off.
One of the first things that happened was we came across a couple of ladies taking pictures of their car… I believe it was an Aston Martin.
They were busy so I didn’t want to interupt them… so I hid them behind our couple and we both just did our things.
It wasn’t all about the building itself so these are some of the only pictures with the full building in sight… most of the others just took a cool architectural aspect of the building.
We felt like one of the things we hadn’t done a ton of was Candids. So I said walk around and I’ll just snap away.
I was using the bushes there obscure the bottom and hide crowds as well.
It started to rain and they had to duck for cover at the Cathedral doors… but it didn’t last forever and after we were on our merry way.
But here’s a couple I got as they made their way there.
But not before they got stopped for some tourist pictures. (This was while the rain was still light)
We continued the walk along the side of the cathedral and used the umbrella for just a little while longer and then it was set aside for the day.
And well that’s the story of this section of pictures. Fun Times.
THE PLANNED POSTS
This is part of a longer series focusing on 7 different locations (some locations are broken down)
This is a quick recap of the pictures taken yesterday afternoon in Little Cottonwood Canyon
While the rest of the days of the Charity Shoot plan to be very sunny it was cloudy and had just finished snowing up at little cottonwood
All the colors were covered in white… but I was surprised that everyone seemed ok with it and many were very pleased… I guess it worked because they were going to be used for Christmas cards anyway.
There were several families and several groups of roommates and even a group of 3 sisters.
I had a lot of fun and was actually able to stay pretty warm considering.
This little guy got scared for some reason (maybe it was my face) and had a hard time, but I was still able to catch a couple happy faces.
Today’s shoot will be up in American Fork Canyon … it’ll be a sunny day but I expect there might still be some white on the ground. (I hope)
Jody was right at home in the snow being from Alaska
Amalia was a beautiful model… easy to get good pictures.
And she brought her roommate too
This girl came for some glamour shots
And she was even nice enough to bring her Mom and Dad
I shot these in the studio on some seamless paper… haha … ok Snow
People bring their friends and family for moral support, we all know jessica just wanted pictures of herself. haha

A good friend Devin Graham a great videographer invited me to a video set they were doing for a swim and dive team at BYU

When he’s famous I’ll of course take out the words “pretending”
THIS IS A LONG BLOG POST - Just so you know
My job at church (calling) is to be the photographer.
How chill is that?? Per’ Darn – is the answer.
Yeah sure it’s tons of work in comparison to other things… but it’s no different than what I do every other day.
I’ve had this calling starting back in 2005 in 3 different wards! In the 3 places i’ve lived… since that first time.
I don’t take quite as many as I did when i lived in my previous house… but still all my friends at church get hooked up with some great pictures at the activities I show up with a camera.
SOME/MANY EXAMPLES FROM RECENT ACTIVITIES
