A Record Breaking Snow Day

Author: Cory Nine years ago, Jade and I experienced our first real winter storm. We had been together for a little over a year, she lived with her parents and I lived down the road in a duplex with a government paid laser scientist. Thats a true fact. There was a blizzard that covered the suburbs we lived in with a little under a foot of...

Creating Wonder with Blurb Books

This post is in collaboration with Blurb Books I work a lot with digital content, which means I don't often get to have physical pieces of my work. Almost all my photography is digital, save for maybe instant film, so sometimes I feel like I am missing out on being able to thumb through my work to admire it or pull it out to show others...

Recently Adored (February Favorites)

February is a special month in this family. We celebrated multiple birthdays, including my own. I'm a big believer in celebrating your special day and along with the day came some lovely gifts that have become new favorites in my life. What I'm reading: One of my gifts from Cory was a subscription to Darling Magazine, an incredible magazine that celebrates women from all walks of life doing all sorts...

Happy Halloween from Gomez & Morticia

Author: Cory I've been so damn excited for Halloween this year especially since we decided that we were going to go as Morticia & Gomez Addams. The Addams Family movies came out when Jade and I were both in grade school, right around that impressionable age where seeing them would really make a difference in how we see Halloween as adults. I freakin' loved them. I watched...

An Anniversary Weekend

Today, I wanted to share a few photographs from our wedding anniversary a few weeks back. The nice thing about having your anniversary fall on a holiday weekend, is that you get an extra day to celebrate. For us, celebrations revolve around food and togetherness. We also try to make sure a photo booth is involved at some point. We devoured the most delicious burger...

2013

No matter how you look at it, 2013 was an incredible year. Sure, there were tears, stress and struggles, but those tough instances are what got us to the moments this year that we will cherish forever. In January we started 'Endlessly Enraptured.' It was a dream of mine and Cory's to finally start a longterm project together. At first Cory insisted that it be a...

A Locally Crafted Christmas at Pittock Mansion

For the past few years, Jade and I have made it a tradition to visit the historic Pittock Mansion, which is decorated in festive holiday fashion each year. A different theme is selected each year and every room in the mansion is decorated based on that particular theme. Last year it was decorated based off the 12 Days of Christmas. This year, they chose the...

A Festive Break

"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave,...

‘Tis the Season

Every  year I look forward to designing our holiday cards. We began the tradition a few years ago thanks to Pinhole Press. They have so many lovely designs to choose from that you are able to customize to your liking. They also offer personalized address labels which makes putting together the holiday cards so much easier! I'm the one with the neat handwriting in this family...
