Latest Adventures and Family Photos | Evergreen Photographer
The blog has been a little quiet lately but our house hasn't! We welcomed our daughter into the world in February. We're excited to share a few family photos to let you know we're still here and getting back to work. In fact, perhaps you noticed the new website design? Needless to say, we've been busy. I'm not one for overusing the word "busy" as a casual answer to "h[...]

However, one of my goals this year was to use a blogging calendar. I've been brainstorming topics I want to s[...]

I just know that as our year ramps up and speeds off we’re trying to stick with some new habits and goals. One of the biggest things we’re focusing on is making sure we do th[...]

3 ways we're kicking off 2017 | new year new adventures
Here we sit, one week into 2017. New year new adventures! Often this is when the excitement of resolutions made at midnight starts to fade and the reality of how hard it is to actually change anything hits. Luckily for me, I was in bed well before midnight and therefore made my resolutions on New Years Day with a full belly and a cup of coffee... decaf, but still. Bey[...]

Confessions of a Husband and Wife photography Team | Entrepreneur Lifestyle
When I say the words "entrepreneur lifestyle," what do you think about? The freedom of self-employment, the joy of following your dream, being self-motivated... things like that? Want to know what I think about? The stress of being self-insured, the tears that come with following your dream, and the problems that come with not having to change out of pajamas or yoga c[...]

A pile of library books sat on our coffee table in the office. Then later it sat on my nightstand. It got moved to the living room. A pile of books now sits in the truck ready to be returned because the fact is that no one actually[...]
