{One Year Anniversary :: Our House}

Happy O N E year House-Aversary! Ok, I know this sounds cheesy, but yes this is something to be celebrated! One year ago this week we closed on our forever (or at least the foreseeable future) home. Nine years of marriage had led up to this point and its probably good we dove into this…

Photographing Cuba – The Three Dudes Workshop

Earlier this spring we shared our tips for traveling to Cuba as a photographer and, well, it’s time to talk more about the reason we went! We traveled twice to the newly opened country for our Three Dudes Workshop (a 5-day photography workshop in Havana, Cuba) to take photos – obviously! Yes, we could have just…

{ 5 Things to Know About Traveling to Cuba }

Over the past year, we got to check one of our dream trips off of our list – Cuba! We traveled to the country twice in the past year; first to scout locations for our Three Dudes Workshop and then back for the workshop. And between those two trips, we definitely learned a thing or two…

{Baby Sawyer :: Birth Story}

Baby sister’s birth story is quite different and not as eventual as her big sisters. With the birth of our first child I was in labor for umteen (too many) hours before I ended up having a c-section. So this time around things were scheduled and we knew around 36 weeks that baby sister would be…

{She’s Here! :: Sawyer Reese}

Baby sister is officially here and we’re all loving the new addition to our family! We’ve enjoyed kissing these squishy cheeks and stealing newborn cuddles. Big sister Rowyn is in love with her baby sister and wants to hold and kiss her all the time 🙂 Excuse us why we are extremely sleep deprived, we…

{Family Maternity Photos}

A couple of weeks ago we had family maternity photos taken by Katie from Katie Grant Photography! Everyone says you won’t do all the same memorable things for your second child that you did for your first child. Keeping a baby book, writing down their “first’s” taking millions of photos, etc, etc. I’m already seeing that…

{Baby 2.0 :: Announcement}

This week we hit the half way point in our pregnancy with our second child (20 weeks, yay!) and found out if a little girl or little boy would be joining our family later this year! We brought two rolls of developed film to the doctors office. One said “It’s a boy” and the other…

{Dad’s Birthday Present :: Baseball Stadium Tour}

We don’t do many personal posts during wedding season because we’re too busy having fun shooting weddings like mad but I thought I would mix one in.  My pops is a HUGE baseball fan and got me hooked on the sport at a young age.  When I say huge and I mean huge, the guys…

{Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet Girl}

Dear Rowyn (a.k.a Ro, Rowie, Monkey, Sweets, Sweet Girl), Words can’t even express the joy you bring to our lives. Your are our biggest blessing and biggest accomplishment. Some days I look at you and still can’t believe you’re all ours. I’m so grateful the Lord trusted us to parent, love you like crazy and…

{Weekend Getaway :: Mammoth}

Every year for Shane’s birthday Shane’s Mom graciously gets us  a weekend away to one of our favorite places, Mammoth Mountain (good deal huh, his birthday but we all get to reap the benefits)! This year was so much fun because Rowyn actually grasped the concept of playing in the snow so we enjoyed a…

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

If you’ve poked around the site today or visited our Facebook and Instagram pages you may have noticed a sneaky little change happening over here! We have officially CHANGED OUR NAME! I know that may sound crazy (which it probably is) this many years into our business so we wanted to take the opportunity to answer…

{Merry Christmas}

Merry Christmas from our family to yours. Hope your day was filled with joy and you were surrounded by the ones you love most. As we near the end of the year with 2 weddings still left to go we can not help but be completely overwhelmed with how blessed we have been this year….

{Happy Thanksgiving}

There is always so much to be thankful for, hope today is spent remembering and celebrating all those things! Happy Thanksgiving! Image Source: Sassy Ink Studio

{Happy Halloween from Dorothy}

It was 50/50 if Rowyn was going to let us dress her up for Halloween this year. My thoughts of getting her a super cute costume went out the door a few months ago when I realized that I needed to find a costume that didn’t have a hat/headband/crown/anything on her head, wasn’t too tight…

{Rowyn :: 18 Months}

Not too sure how this happened, but our sweet baby girl has become a full blown toddler. I can’t image life with out this crazy girl. She brings us so much joy and keeps us on our toes! We have definitely started to see glimpses of her super stubborn personality and beginnings of the dreaded…

{Mammoth Backcountry :: Snow Camping}

A couple weekends ago me and two of my good friends (Mike & Wes) set out on our first back-country snowboarding/camping trip.  The three of us actually have a interesting history, in 2006 we packed up our snowboards and a few t-shirts and loaded them into a 1964 Jamboree Motor Home and moved to Mammoth Lakes.  That winter…

{Mother’s Day :: A Wonderful Weekend}

Hope you had a great weekend celebrating Mother’s Day with the Mom in your life (or being celebrated yourself if you’re a Mom). I had a wonderful weekend thanks so my family and hubby! Saturday we got to celebrate my Mother-in-law with lunch at El Zarape in University Heights before we headed north for an…

{Rowyn’s 1st Birthday Party :: Pink Lemonade Theme}

I’m so excited to finally share Rowyn’s 1st Birthday party with you! I was honestly a little sad when her party was over. I feel that Rowyn turning 1 was such a milestone (not only did we survive an entire year as first time parents but since our year got off to a rocky start…
