A collection of memories from the first half of summer. Inspired by watersnakes, tiny towns in Hawaii, dirt roads with my dad, camping trips with my best friend & a fresh wave of creative inspiration during this new season of life.Read More

I have always loved working with small businesses to help them create a unique brand identity. A couple weeks ago, Jackie and two of her best friends made the drive from New Orleans, Louisiana to Eureka Springs, Arkansas to shoot some of Jackie’s custom jackets. Haunted hotels, fish tacos, and a grand finale with a summer rain on Beaver Lake made for such a fun afternoon. Hope to work with you ladies again some day!!

Had the pleasure of taking engagement photos of one of my best friends & his bride-to-be last week! We left last minute to catch the last of the evening light & encountered rain as soon as we began driving south to Arkansas. We pressed onward, driving the back roads of Northwest Arkansas until we found a magical little clearing to wander out to. The rain turned to a mist, and the line between romantic photo shoot & rainy day adventure blurred into one. Over the next two hours, venomous snakes were wrangled, feet got muddy, rocks were skipped and fresh memories were made. Josh and Laura, may the grace of the One who breathes out all life lead you into a life of peace and joy. Love you guys.Read More

Before I moved to New Zealand last November, my best friend Michael Portugal & his lovely wife Shelley hosted me in Bowling Green, Kentucky while we debuted our photobook “3 Camels and a Tuk Tuk”. While curating photos for our gallery event, we simultaneously began planning out their visit to New Zealand.
A few weeks ago, Indy and I hopped on a flight to Australia. We dedicated the first half of our trip to exploring the Great Ocean Road on AUS’s south east coastline and the second half to me meeting her brothers and extended family. The last time I was in Australia (almost 5 years ago) I was living out of a backpack with a few friends, hitchhiking everywhere we went. That nomadic, Franciscan, “on the fly” style of traveling has a warm place in my heart and always will. This trip, however, got off to a challenging start…
