MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: SEPTEMBER 4–10, 2017!
Enjoying a day off with my family, celebrating Gabby’s birthday *twice*, the launch party of a Getty publications project that I loooove, and the weekend in Colorado with my parents before a conference starts on Monday.
*Many of these shot on my new Fujifilm X-T2, hope you enjoy!
Started the week with Monday off because of Labor day.
I documented this day (first day with my new camera) so expect to see that post soon!

I’ll end this week with a cute photo of my parents. The next week I’m at a conference, but I did my best to continue to explore Denver…or, at least eat at as many Denver restaurants as possible.
Much love friends!
