Day on the Town with car2go

This post is in collaboration with car2go Not having a car available can sometimes be a pain, even in a city that has so much public transit available. Riding the train or street car is just fine, but what if you need to go to an event unreachable by public transit? We only have one car, and most of the time Cory has to use it for...

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...

2016 In Photo Booth Strips

Author: Cory I wrote a version of this post the other day, realized it was super glum. I think looking back on 2016 for both of has been frustrating. I had a job change twice, lost some important people in my life, Jade felt overworked and under appreciated, and I can't say that I didn't either. It was a tough year, but it did have a...

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...

If there ever was a time for Unity…

I started this year feeling incredibly passionate about the presidential race, more so than I ever had in the past. Jade and I aren't really the go to a bustling rally or door to door campaigning type of people, but this year felt a little different. I personally started by supporting the candidate who I shared the most views with, that being Bernie Sanders. I'm...

A Trip to Halloweentown

Author: Cory We love Halloween. Its been part of our holiday tradition to go and take photobooth strips at the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland; one for me, one for Jade, and one of us together. We've done it for the last 5 years. We don't usually go to parties. We don't go out trick or treating anymore. But we do make sure that we pick out...

If I Could Do It All Over Again with BHLDN

This post is in collaboration with BHLDN Anyone who knows me knows that I love high end and vintage fashion. When Cory and I got married almost five years ago (can’t believe its almost been five years!), we initially considered eloping. We weren’t big on huge parties and just wanted to do something small and special. We ended up not wanting to leave our families out,...

Creating new Inspiration with method

This post is in collaboration with method. Where there is fashion illustration, there is going to be fashion inspiration. Keeping all of the special pieces in my wardrobe in inspiring condition to use again and again for projects takes the right product. That's why I teamed up with my friends at method, to try out their 4x Laundry detergent and fabric softener on the collection from my very own...

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...

29 Years Worth Celebrating

My mother and father are your classic sentimental parents. Every year on my birthday they tell the same stories, without fail. My dad will show me old pictures (you know, ones I hate but he treasures) & laugh as he tells stories about the silly pranks he used to pull on me. My mom will wax poetic about the floral wallpaper that lined every inch...
