Barn Kittens

My Aunt’s barn cat Callie had kittens! We were joking that she was so big she should pop them out while I was still there since I’d named some barn kittens of hers in the past! Callie picked this burlap and foam covered bucket, kept her babies in nice and […]

Adventures | God’s Thumb

Last Sunday hiking up God’s Thumb, some sun, some rain, and some hail. Love these girls so much, adventuring with them was the best. We laughed, we got muddy, and we had to retreat as a storm blew in but I wouldn’t have had the morning any other way.

Adventures | Lambing Crew

For the last month I’ve been spending oodles of time up at the OSU sheep center volunteering during lambing season! Bottle feeding babies, spreading hay (getting it all up in my boots because I wore my hole-y jeans), and making tons of new friends (human and sheep alike!) It’s been an […]

Family Photos | The Beck’s

Self-Portraits | Gibson Ranch

Which basically means that when I’m back in California visiting my parents I have to visit Gibson Ranch and take pictures. Because there’s farm-y stuff there. So already I […]

Wedding | Emily and Jason Epperley

Emily and Jason’s wedding was STUNNING. And I’m not just saying that because Emily’s my cousin, promise! It was the perfect day, the weather was gorgeous for pictures, Ron’s Pond made for a breathtaking backdrop – so much green! – and a whole passel of wonderful people gathered together to […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 14

Going home. Bittersweet, flat and beautiful. This trip left a mark on my heart like nothing else. I fell more in love with the landscapes around me, forests, rivers, lakes, plains; all of it calling to my soul. I fawned over bison (And still think buffalo is a better name), […]

Roadtrip 2014: Day 13

Some places simply sing. The air around them vibrates with energy not just of the present, but from the last hundred years. Cotton candy clouds on the brightest blue background, floating over the world so carefree and fresh. Scrubby brushes and waving grasses; this place simply hums with a perseverant […]
