I love being in so deep, quitting is laughable.

I live in a machine of my own design that keeps pumping while I sleep.

I’m the most important person on my own mountain. A world that ceases to exist if I do.

You can visit. Pull up an iron daisy.

You’ll never understand where I’m coming from, but don’t worry. No one will understand you, either. Human language is inadequate.

Words will fail you. Aura will be misread sometimes…if you even have the ability to see it.

Just know, it is equal parts beautiful to lonely. Equal parts encouraging to discouraging.

The sun always shines, here. It’s your mountain. You get to choose.

You weave through the iron daisies as you make your way back to your mountain. The daisies are probably soft and fragrant where you come from. But...it may be dark at night. Maybe, you prefer the moon. You may have a guard dog or a sentinel. I’d love to visit one day. Maybe, you’ll let me see.

Me? My daisies are iron.

A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

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 […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

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 […]
