We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Bokeh's Bandage & Puppy Insurance

  • A Change in the Plans

We have recently spent a large amount of time with our friends that have kids. Toddlers, 6 month olds, 3 year olds…. the one thing that seems to be consistent among all of them is that their life and their schedule is determined by their children. You can plan on getting 6 hours of sleep but no matter how hard you try to plan, if your baby wakes you up at 3am, you’re not getting your 6 hours. Plans have to be flexible. Michael and I are not ready for that big life change quite yet. However, every now and then, we get a teeny tiny taste of what parenting may be like one day.

Our Adventures in The Emerald City

  • Seattle 2014

officially feel like we live with Delta’s flight crew. We have spent so many hours on planes this past month!! It’s kinda sad but I have actually gotten tired of their “Bischoff Cookies”. I used to love those cookies!! We’re not complaining, we love to travel.. but it has felt good to be home this week! Our trip to Seattle was planned close to a year ago and as we got closer to the date, things started to fall into place! For example, we met up with our sweet friends Ike and Tash for dinner in Richmond several months ago and casually mentioned that we would be in their neck of the woods in September.

Handcrafting Your Story

  • H.H. Boogie

have a lot of friends in the industry… friends that we met at conferences, friends that live down the road… friends that we’ve met via the blog… etc. Lots of friends! It’s such a gift! When I ventured into the photography world over 6 years ago, I never entered expecting to find community… much less, lifelong friends! Thank goodness God has other plans. Over 3 three years ago we met Jeremy Kester…. and our life has never been the same! He’s literally one of the funniest, light hearted, most genuine guys we know. The more we got to know him, the more we realized that not only was he hilarious, he was also very REAL.
