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...

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...

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...

An Evening Stroll Through the Streets of London

I don't care what it takes, we are moving to London. It's always been a dream of ours and it's becoming more and more of a real possibility each day. We both work from home. We both have very little tying us to stay in Portland. Following suit and making the plunge seems like the next step. Granted, it will take doing all the proper...

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...

Recently Adored & a Long Awaited Update

I've had this post in my head for months & it feels incredible to finally have the time (& energy) to sit down, edit these photographs & write these words to all of you. Cory and I have been working on getting used to a new rhythm. Funny how life can change and evolve so rapidly. As soon as you get used to one schedule,...

Welcoming Fall with Nordstrom

Fall is so close, I can smell it: the rain, the freshness in the cool air, cozy wood burning fires. It's certainly the season I most look forward to and feel most at home in. I wanted to take a moment to share a few outtakes from a recent project we had the pleasure to collaborate on with Hello Society and Nordstrom to style and share a...

Modern Romance

A few mornings ago, Jade wanted to take a trip to Powells to pick up Aziz Ansari's new book, "Modern Romance." Just a few pages in, we couldn't help but start reminiscing about our own romance. Jade and I have been together for 8 years now. In some ways it seems like we just met and in other ways I can't quite remember what life was...
