I can not fail.

Jan

This is a segment from a personal journal entry I wrote on January 16, 2020.

“Today, I don’t turn around and go back to The Little Blue House (Studio). Today, I parked. I Let myself in with MY keys. I sit on the floor with my sandwich, the place needs cleaned, painted, the only thing of “mine” here is the unfinished walls, my planner, and new candles. A single glass, & a bottle of Champagne. I did it. I made it. It’s mine. I’m here. I am divinely supported. I can not fail. It would be impossible.”

I sat on a dirty floor. Lit a candle. Surrounded by paint cans & DIY fixer-up supplies with two weeks of hard work ahead but my heart melted as my mind said, “yup. This is a feeling I know.”

For MONTHS I took a detour on the way to The Little Blue Studio. I turned right when I was supposed to go straight. Then, I’d drive just 10 seconds down a steep hill until I saw my building. I said, “That’s yours, you know?”. Flipped a U at the bottom of the hill and drove back to my tiny studio. “Some, Day, I’ll park…”

I can’t wait to share more of this story with you.

FYI: The new space looks nothing like this photo any more…
but it feels the exact same to me. ♥

I can not fail.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
