Mike’s visit has been really fun so far! 👯♀️⠀
We’ve been to Portland twice and plan to drive to Seattle tomorrow. But for today, we are going to finally relax a little. ⠀
Any recommendations for Seattle??
Change is always good. It’s funny how “used” to things we can get. Reminding my heart today that the only attachment I have is Jesus. No matter where I am or where he puts me, I belong to him. #inmyfeels
These two had such a sweet first look the morning of their wedding. Our goal on wedding days is to simply be there to capture real stories and honest connection for couples to remember for a lifetime. We are so thankful to be able to document such a thing. Our couples who are insanely in love and truly excited to be married make our jobs so easy.
Dorothy said “There’s no place like home,” but that was only after a whirlwind trip to Oz. I dream of traveling to all 195 countries, but I wonder what part of the world you want to see? (Please don’t say the yellow brick road!)
Summer nights are magical! 💫
I bought a whole bunch of sparklers on sale around the Fourth of July. Now, I’m just spending my summer evenings lighting them up and having solo dance parties. Anyone else want to join me? 💃✨ #mycreativesummer_summernights#dancepartyforone
On the outside, you might think I’m outgoing or silly, but just below the surface you might be surprised to discover I’m still silly but an introvert to new or fairly new people! It’s true...and you wanna know a secret? It makes a better my photography better because I truly make the sessions about you and your family. I let your interactions be natural and organic. If I ever become part of the session it’s to guide positioning or loosen the tension. I’d love discover something new about you, so let me know in the comments below!
We got to take out a group of girls with Next Move to climb in Rocky Mountain National Park. // All of their giggling and joy made me think of why we started this little company: we wanted younger climbers to enjoy more than just climbing, we wanted them to forget about grades and competition; we wanted them to experience outdoor climbing as a way to connect with nature, their friends, and themselves. // ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Anytime focus was lost on climbing because nature was just so impressive (they had to dip their feet in the lake, or make snow balls in amazement that winter could still exist in these magic spots) we couldn’t have been more thrilled☀️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The competition, the pressure, and the disconnection from climbing as ‘joy’ in this new indoor generation of climbers is exactly why Next Move is so important to us. These amazing indoor climbers who have never touched real rock, learned anything about climbing ethics or climbing history- need to be introduced to it, and I fully believe that.
