Eco-Friendly Summer Ideas

Hey guys!

Happy Friday! This has been on my mind, and I wanted to create a post about it for several weeks now. After several draft versions, I kept coming back to this: I wanted something fresh and positive to empower us to make sustainable changes for ourselves and and the environment. Because feeling bad about something doesn’t lead to lasting results. When we think about our impact on the environment, I want to focus on hope, effectiveness, and feeling good about our actions.

Let’s Rock the Rest of 2019

Hey guys!!

Hey guys!!

You know what’s a bit wild? The fact that we are just about halfway through 2019 already. Is that as shocking for you as it is for me? It’s easy to look back at the goals we created for the year, and if they haven’t happened yet, feel really bad about it. To be totally honest, my year has not panned out the way I thought it would, and I’ve recently made a lot of changes. But you know the irony of all this? The actual ideas and the desires that I wanted are unfolding. It’s just the route I’m traveling is not what I anticipated. I feel really good about it, and love how life is full of these little surprises. I fully trust the process.

Okay, so here are my suggestions for how to help you rock the rest of 2019.

Photoshopping Flamingos

It’s coming up on two years since two beautiful wild flamingos flew into town, and I was lucky enough to see them on the beach! The event was really cool, and you can read the original story here.

For the quick version, we had Tropical Storm Cindy come through, which landed right near Alabama. When the storm cleared, two flamingos were spotted on Orange Beach. I saw it in the news, and contemplated driving over that way… but what are the chances I’d even see them?

Instagram; A Microcosm of Real Life

Hey friends,

I’ve kind of realized that I talk about social media and our relationships with it a lot. I don’t know, it kind of fascinates me to be honest. I was thinking about how it all started for me… Once upon a time, a friend was telling me about facebook, and if you went to certain schools you could use it. Soon I jumped on the bandwagon, and began oversharing like everyone else (this is what I had for lunch, this is my dog sleeping, this is how I’m feeling today, this is me going to yoga. haha!). Then Instagram came onto the scene.

Seeking Simplicity

Hey friends,

It’s been a few weeks, and I honestly couldn’t wait to sit down today to blog. I love this space, and when I don’t make time for it I can FEEL it. We’ve had a lot going on here. Ed has been busy with work, little side projects, and things around the apartment. I’ve been finishing up several family galleries that I shot over spring break, and working on other content as well, such as the print shop updates, travel plans, and a potential free product for you guys (I’m trying hard!).

It is so cool that we are able to sell what we are passionate about to the entire world from our couches.

One of my favorite aspects of my business is the print shop, and it’s where my photography business first began.
