For our eleventh anniversary, we enjoyed a date weekend together exploring Cathedral Park and the St. John’s bridge. Jenni and I were experimenting with video features of our new camera and sound equipment. Recording good quality video and audio with a SLR camera is much more complicated than I thought. But we enjoyed learning new things as we recorded ourselves answering trivia questions.
We walked across the St. John’s bridge and added it to the list of bridges we’ve crossed together. We hope to walk across all of Portland pedestrian bridges.
I’ve been gaming more often since November. The last quarter of the year is stressful at work as we prepare our annual product catalog and the holidays. I find gaming to be a fun, stress-relieving activity. It’s gotten better lately because I’ve been able to play with coworkers.
Did he know he had it when we left the store? Yes. Did he know stealing is wrong? Yes.
I sighed with disappointment. I didn’t think I’d have to deal with this issue with my kids since they are content with their toys and so good at not whining about buying toys at stores. They’re so good in fact that I enjoy taking them out to stores for window shopping.
We always enjoy a session with new parents. We photographed Tim and Trina’s wedding six years ago and we were blessed to photograph their growing family.
We met the Penny family through our mutual friend Leah Brandis. They have an unique aesthetic to their portrait sessions that provide us an opportunity to explore new areas of Portland.
We were connected with the Stan family for our first daughters through the Bradley birth course. We’ve photographed their family over the years and it’s always a fun reunion to see their daughters grow up.
Russell and Shannon first started dating when we were newlyweds. Over the years, we have been witnesses to their wedding, for their daughter, and now, their latest addition to their family.
Coming up with a great costume is hard. Especially when I didn’t like wearing costumes. I didn’t like drawing attention. So imagine how thrilled I was with myself when I came up with the perfect costume: superhero alter egos.
“The pictures are awesome. So happy to see everyone enjoying the family camping. We used to camp a lot when we were younger but as time went by bought a pop-up then a travel travel trailer then a 33foot fifth wheel…”
