Back to the Real World…

And, we’re HOME.

After a solid month of traveling, with time spent in 11 states, life has finally slowed down a little.

Well… I say “slowed down”.

What I mean is, we’ll be in the office able to start catching up on a month’s worth of work. Oh goodness, you guys, there’s so much to share. Aside from blog posts about our epic road trip, I’ve also got a wedding and several portrait sessions to blog. Basically, I get to live at the computer for a couple weeks.

But you know what? That’s not so bad. Looking back through these photos helps me slow down and remember where we’ve been. Sometimes, traveling can be such a whirlwind… adventuring can be SO exhausting. Having these images, both personally & professionally, allows me to breathe and make sure I’m really committing memories of this summer.

Memories like this one… about a half mile into our two mile Grand Canyon hike:


Stopping for little mini-portrait shoots anytime the feeling struck us. (The kids did their own thing for this one… it feels so real life to me.)


Relaxing in rivers with no one around for miles…


Watching him teach them about the world…


And views like this… so many views like this:


Of course I’ll be sharing more blogs & stories from that trip, I just can’t help it. But for now, it’s back to the grindstone, and getting images to our amazing (patient!!) clients as soon as possible. 🙂

Have a fantastic week!

    What a blessing these memories and photos will be for your whole beautiful family. I’m so in love.

    The leopard jumper with the kids to the side — breathtaking.

  2. Can’t wait to see all the photos from your family’s travels. Looks like an amazing trip. We fly to California and drive to North Florida, multiple times each year and you’ve really inspired me to stop along the way and put more into the journey, than just the trip.

    I’m so glad you were able to make time for us on this epic trip. Thank you for the gift of your family and your talents. xoxo
