Have you been to our website lately? I am so excited we finally published a new splash page. Peter worked so hard at making the design come to life. I’m really proud of him, especially because he had to put up with all my demanding requests.
I was like:
      “Nope, that’s not how I had pictured it in my mind” “Can you tilt it more to the right?” “Ok never mind, what about to the left?” “Can we do squiggly writing?” “But I really wanted a Polaroid picture…” “What do you mean I can’t do that?” And the list went on and on, it was that awesome.

The goal was to create a very romantic feel to the page. It is inspired by one of my favorite movies of all times The Notebook (sorry didn’t read the book).  I think the page really showcases our work as well as our personality. The tags describe what we live by as well as what we strive for our image to reflect. The open book represents an initiation to write your own story and live by your rules, dare to dream.  The photos signify memories that will be treasured and forever embedded into our book. Are you rolling your eyes yet? What can I say, I love romance, cut me some slack.

We are currently working on our blog, so keep posted for the new design. If you haven’t seen our new splash page please do us a favor and take a look at it. I want to know you think about it, do you like it? Do you hate it? Is it cheesy? Leave a comment to let me know, we really appreciate the feedback.

Happy Friday

Please don’t ask, I silently begged Peter hoping he would hear my desperate request. Of course he just had to ask the dreaded question, what happened?  

  With that, my dad went into story telling mode. You see, he can’t give you a straight answer. No matter how simple the question is he will give you a complete well rounded answer and sometimes you end up more confused and with more questions than you started with. Except now you fear asking because he will talk for another half an hour before he even begins answering the question.

You would think Peter would know all this by now. Yet he still fell for it. So we ended up listening to a story that included a couple of years of history along with an animated narration. Yes, it is quite entertaining, yet sometimes I just wish he could give a yes or no answer.

Peter and I have a little contest going on, the goal is to take the worst pictures of each other during a photo shoot. Then we look at the behind the scenes pictures we snapped and laugh at each other. I find the whole thing rather amusing and I wanted to share some of them so you too can have a good laugh.

Here I am talking to my camera

...wondering what to do next...

...pushing over a tree...

You can rest assured Peter will do anything to get the best angles, including but not limited to the following...
 He is so committed to capturing the moment he doesn't waste time setting his tripod down or putting his flash on his camera...

Peter says we look like we are trying to figure out how to work our cameras.

sneak peak

Tuesday, December 21, 2010


My camera is an extension of whom I am. Through the lens I record memories, it helps me not to forget the sights I have seen and the beautiful people I have met along the way in this crazy adventure we call life. It is a map that shows me where I came from and where I'm going. I wanted to share with you who I am and the small things that shaped my life this past year through my camera lens...


Here is Peter trying to communicate with the natives....a.k.a my uncle. By the look on their face he's not making much sense
And here I am beating them at musical chairs...booyah

The scenery was breathtaking...

...and spiders were an everyday thing

Not to mention other little creatures that lived in our room

We quickly learned that washing machines were out the question

and so was the sewer system and running water

Getting around was not an easy task either

But at the end of the day what mattered was knowing we made a difference in people's life...

...good food...

...rock throwing contest and weight lifting to prove your manliness...

...and satisfying your basic necessities

Before we knew it, the five months were up and we were back in the States. Peter missed the little creatures so much he spent his free time photographing bugs...

For me 2010 was the year of first. First time I ever gone to table rock... 

First time I had been away from my mom for so long...

First wedding fair...

First married year

First trip to Portland

First time I realized my husband was a dork

First time I discovered my family's secret identity as circus acrobats... 

First time in New Port, OR

First time I realized I too I'm a dork

First time helping Peter's dad build his house

2010 is already out the door. In the past year I learned to give thanks everyday for all the blessings I have. To love and laugh like there is no tomorrow. To put other's needs ahead of mine.To dream big.To freely forgive and to stand up for what I believe.
