George is TWO

DERKSWORKS-0217

For the past few weeks we’ve been playing a game with George, where he tells us that he is either two or six and then we tickle him and strictly forbid him from growing up. As it turns out, the game is still funny but our parental authority seems to have failed us in preventing the passage of time. Without any doubt, our little boy is two. He will occasionally bust out a sentence, a beat-box, or laugh at this own “toot”. Drums, hammers, and baseball have all made the list of awesome things that can and will always be a good idea at any time of the day or night. He is a wonderful big brother, though I suspect that he and Solomon are already plotting mischief together at night. He is kind, caring, courageous, and inquisitive and I couldn’t be more proud. Happy birthday George, you are very loved.

-B (Dad)

    These are terrific

Family time in COLORADO

DERKSWORKS-0062

DERKSWORKS-0001

Alright, I’ll just warn you right now, this is a long one. I tried trimming the selection a little further but then I thought, “nope, I’m gonna take a ‘selfish’ today.”

Last month we went with my Derkin family to the awesome state of Colorado for my younger brother’s wedding! In the process we added on a few extra days for family vacation. I’m pretty sure our only regret was that we wish it could’ve been longer. Not to spoil anything from the images but, the whole trip was stunning. Sam and Nicole’s wedding was on the spring equinox, the day from which all the days only get longer and more beautiful… if that’s not the most poetic day to get married, then I don’t know what is. I couldn’t be happier for my brother and was honored to be in his wedding. Though it is one of about four weddings I’ve ever been in without shooting it, I just couldn’t help myself, and I made a deal with their super-talented photographer Hannah to let me be part of their portraits anyway.

I’m not sure what it is about the Colorado air, colors, water, or mountains, but it is a magical place and I am honored every time I get to go back. I hope the next trip isn’t very far away.

The colors of Colorado’s earth are pure and magical. I will never get over these shades of green.

This straight razor was hand restored by our friends at Yellowood Design, replacing the cracked plastic pieces with hand shaped wood from reclaimed barn wood. I’m not too sure on the exact origin of the razor, whether it was my grand father’s business partner’s or if it was his fathers, but the barn wood was from Benjamin Rowley’s grandfather’s barn and the whole thing is just SO dang cool.

Little known fact, Solomon had a HUGE poop five minutes before the ceremony and directly preceding this photo. We don’t often brag about how quick we can change a diaper, but I have to say that we were pretty proud of this Indianapolis 500 racing pit speed change.

Shortly after this photo and right after I said, “I don’t think that rock is going to be a good foot hold Sam.” I fell into the river for a hot second.
