Seriously, you want to give up? After all of that hard work? We all have feelings of “down in the dumps.” It’s perfectly normal and natural. You’re in the doldrums. You cannot get your booty out of no-mans land and your brain fog is as thick as the pea soup your grandma shoved down your throat […]

It can be oh so tempting to go out and buy the latest and greatest camera model but it’s important to be smart about it too. 1. Consider Your Budget. First of all, don’t upgrade if you don’t have the money! Plus, it’s not always just the camera body you’re investing in. Be wise in your […]

That dreaded client question: “Hello? Do you sell the digital files?” Everybody wants the digitals. But what most clients don’t realize is how un-valuable digitals really are. But clients buy what they KNOW. And digitals are what they know. So that’s what they THINK they want. But when you flip the switch and show them […]

With the allure of shiny new things for photorgaphers to purchase at trade shows and everyone pushing this album or that metal print, it’s no wonder photographers often try to carry too many products. The next thing you know, you are juggling dozens of vendors, multiple turn around times and client orders start falling through […]

Our Farm House

The second floor is on! It’s not complete yet, but we can now climb the ladder to get up to the second floor deck. And you know that that means? The VIEWS!! WOW! We had no idea they would be this good when we bought the property. Plus, it makes the lower level feel more […]

Oh it’s so slow. Weather really put the brakes on things for a while. While I was at WPPI, 3 FEET of snow fell in Bend. It happened right as the guys needed to install the trusses on the garage. The trusses are those roof beams. And it’s super dangerous to do when it’s icy. […]

The ONE thing I have really hoped for this entire process was a La Canche French range. I love to cook. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and cooking on a high quality range is my dream. Good gear makes your hobby fun and exciting.  Today, hubby said yes to my stove. He […]

I went to Portland this weekend to find my bath tub. We need it now because the plumbing lines are about to be installed into the foundation and Rob needs dimensions of the tub I plan on picking. I’m a huge bath person, so this tub is important. Who knew shopping for a bath tub […]

So here it is! The final house on paper. We got permits and it’s full speed ahead! The house will sit up on a rock outcropping, giving it some height. It’ll be almost directly in the middle of our lot. This will allow us to capture the views.  The color renderings really give you a […]

So, we can’t really build the new house until we sell the old. The money has to come from somewhere, right? So today, we said good bye to our sweet house on the butte. It’s the house where Rob and I officially married in the backyard, and where Dean was born. So many memories here, […]

We finally got our creative jam on. I think we may have it right this time. It’s not my number one choice, but Rob says the roofline is much easier/cheaper to build, plus the master is on the main which means I can live in this house even when I old and decrepit. LOL. So […]

Eight months into design and we scrapped it all. Back to square one. WHA?? Yep, we hated it. Well, not hate it. But Rob says it’s going to be waaaay too expensive to build with its complicate roofline, plus we could NOT figure out how to shrink it down. We really can’t afford to build […]
