Keep Moving Ahead

In addition to my regular photography work, I have a few partnerships and collaborations with other companies in the works. I will eventually do a separate blog post on each of them.

A few days to just Be.

I promise I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. When summertime hits, Tybee is full of tourists, and vacationers. For the past four and a half years, Sean and I have strategically marketed our business so that we can continue to live on Tybee, pay our bills and feed our kids. Each year […]

Loosing Sight of The Real Thing

Surrounded by some of my closest friends, we wiggled our toes in the sand for a glorious beach day. Feeling the salt air stick to our skin and hair as the cool breeze wrapped around us we just enjoyed the moment, and the opportunity to be. About an hour into our basking, a little boy […]

Purge and Simplify

Visiting Costa Rica always changes my perspective on many day to day things when I return to the States and our life here.  A while ago I wrote a blog post titled “Walking Around the World in Flip Flops” in that post I referred back to one of our first visits to Costa Rica about […]
