  • athena - Bob Ross! Yes!! I want to go paint some Happy Trees now! (and I love these images of you. especially the selfie that dave took of the two of you together. xo)ReplyCancel

  • Kim - Hi – I came across this post after being directed to another from Beata English (the one about stepping back from social media chaos) :) Clicked through to this one as I lived in SF for almost 5 years… You’ve captured the spirit of the city in your beautiful images and I am now missing it all over again. Like you, when I landed in the city, I knew straight away it was somewhere I could live. Thanks for sharing…

ADVENTURES THROUGH THE REDWOODS AND DOWN THE WEST COAST

I was challenged the other week to ‘find joy where you are‘. I have the quote hanging up in my office now. You guys… I didn’t realize how this phrase would totally convict me. Because sometimes, honestly.. I’m in kind of a perpetual state of wanderlust. :)  I just want to pack up my bags […]

  • Taylor - Yes and Yes. I am soo excited to head west this weekend and this got me so much more pumped.ReplyCancel

  • Hannah Nicole - hooked from the first picture. these are so lovely. everytime you write or shoot, it makes me want to travel and live fully. and now, I’m itching to visit this place. :)ReplyCancel

  • athena - The frame of you, Jenn, in front of the ocean took my breath away. Literally. I audibly gasped. The manner and amount with which you love each other is present in every single image you shoot of one another and your portraits of the other are some of my most favorite – oops, I mean favourite – pieces of your work.

    The shot driving into Cannon Beach is remarkable. And the waves. Love this post – and I love your thoughts on joy. xxReplyCancel

  • sharon johnston - just beautiful :) Ty and I are hoping to head down that way come September..would love to hear all your fav spots!ReplyCancel

  • Chris Creed - These are ridiculous. That is all.ReplyCancel

TRANSITION

A couple of days to get out to Lake Michigan, passing through Detroit and Grand Rapids on the way. The transition to life out on the road, no constant internet access once we crossed the border, no sitting at a desk, and that abundance of time during the getting from one place to the next. […]
