A New Fish For Briggs

Lifestyle Personal

The buying of a fish. It’s an ordinary thing, I suppose.

However, I heard it said once that the better we tell our stories, the better we want to live them. And this is an ordinary story that I wanted to tell.

It’s a story about allowance, and saving, and learning to value money. It’s about my boy’s Lego watch and shoes worn out from a whole year of Kindergarten. It’s about brothers and sisters and about caring for a pet.

And I’ll let you figure out what happened there in the middle with the neon green rocks.

Thank you for listening to my story today and for giving me a place to tell it.

Newborn Olive
Back in April, it was my great honor to photograph the birth of Miss Olive Jane. As a photographer, there really is no more important request than that of a mother asking you to capture her baby's first breaths. Two weeks later, I had the opportunity to capture little Olive again as well as the rest of her family. (Big brother Atticus was happy to show off his muscles, but not so happy to pose with his sister.) Since her 6-month photos are just around the corner, I though it was probably time that I shared this tiny beauty with you. Enjoy!

Color {Favorites: Part 2 of 4}
When I think of Ethiopia, I think of color - and lots of it! While I would probably complain loudly if my neighbor decided to paint his house teal or purple or pink, I found the color choices in Ethiopia to be just beautiful!
