All Around Champ // Like Father, Like Son

When a friend of mine posted a high school yearbook photo of his father on Facebook and claimed it was him, the likeness was uncanny - and an idea was born.

More to Explore // Lifestyle images for The Shops at Riverwoods

These images were shot last June for The Shops at Riverwoods in Provo, Utah, to be used online, in print, and within the shopping mall. I was stoked for the opportunity to assemble a faux family as well as work alongside a good friend of mine, Patrick Livingston, who styled the shoot - as well as barked orders for me and kept everyone's spirits high.

I really lucked out casting a family that quickly became comfortable with each other. This shoot felt more like spending an evening with close family than a group of strangers. Many laughs (and corny jokes) were shared.

Special thanks to Matt and McKell, from The Shops at Riverwoods, for the opportunity and their team for helping make the shoot run so smoothly. And to my assistant Brimley for putting up with my self-doubts.
