What’s your outlook?

My goodness! “Where do I go from here?” Have you said that, felt that, ACTED on that? The helplessness builds in your psyche like a consuming fire, devouring what was once good. Perhaps you’re at a dead-end job, struggling to get a business off the ground or trying to get married or have children.… Read the rest

Finding the “Perfect” Christmas Tree

We spent some time this summer taking a look around the local woods to spot the perfect place to go tree hunting. We found several places that looked like there were some pretty great trees. My sister was coming to town the week before Thanksgiving, so we decided to take her out with us.… Read the rest

Elijah’s Three Yr Old Session | DT The Dalles

After I posted a photo or two from our time at the Rowena Crest Viewpoint, a friend suggested that I do a more urban setting for a shoot. So, I did! This time, I waited to take the hubby along too. Mostly because I didn’t want to deal with a kiddo running around with cars so near.… Read the rest

A Three Year Old Photo Session

Right before our little man, Elijah, turned three and I mean days before, we went out and had a couple photo sessions. I decided that I need and want to start documenting Elijah a little more often. That means, having a photo session or two throughout the year. I think I will at least do a big one for his birthday.… Read the rest

Keep it rolling

Bridger Mountain Range
Standing at the top of the world, your path is all laid out, you just need to take a step.

I have been at this whole multimedia side-hustle thing for a while now. I started off in high school making slideshow presentations for graduation ceremonies, homecoming events and recap videos for mission trips.… Read the rest

TIDB: The Oregon Coast Video

TIDB

Things I Didn’t Blog, is is a post series for me (Brent) to share things I’ve nearly forgot about, and definitely didn’t blog.

As many of you know, this year, on May 17th, we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. Due to work scheduling, I couldn’t take any time off around that date, but I was able to secure a week off in June.… Read the rest

A Halloween Lion

I am not the most creative person when it comes to figuring out costumes and such. I’ll stick to photography. But really, I do like taking my little man out for the evening. Let’s face it, we the parents like getting some candy too. Plus, I like seeing his reactions to everyone else dressed up. 

Now, he unfortunately did get a little scared at some decorations, but for the most part he was so fixed on what everyone was wearing and getting candy.… Read the rest

Let’s talk about momentum

It’s all about getting started, all you need is a push.

The goal is to harness movement and let it carry you through the obstacles that life invariably provides. What is hard is when you’ve been sitting still for too long. Obstacles that used to seem like mole hills, now feel like mountains.… Read the rest

Finding the Next Steps | Another Miscarriage Story

Now what? I am that statistic and I thought for sure that my next step would be taking tests. I had already spent a lot of money for the year on blood work from my December miscarriage and this April one. I have a high deductible, so I just thought that it would all work out.… Read the rest

Finding Comfort | Another Miscarriage Story

Another week went by as I started to plan things in my head. I was planning out how December would look with a newborn, how Christmas would look with a newborn, how we would have to delay our big family trip to Hawaii, how I was convinced that I was having a girl, how I finally became ok with the girl name that Brent had picked out back before we had Elijah and so much more.… Read the rest

Finding the Words | Another Miscarriage Story

Here I sit trying to recount my feelings and thoughts from when it happened again in April. I had so many emotions running around in my head that I needed to take some time to think about it before writing it all out for the world to see. I’ve been wanting to get on here to share with you all again, but I really didn’t know where to begin.… Read the rest
