Keith Big Bear is a man that knows his way around a flute. He performed and told stories at the Great Winter Crow Show this past weekend and I had the pleasure of photographing the event. Mad skills.


So I was looking through some old photos for a project and I happened across some that I had completely forgotten about. My friend Cathryn and I met up for some fun photos a couple months ago. Here they be! I like how they turned out. Also, dandelions are awesome!



My resolution for the new year is quite simple. I simply want to create more.

That’s it. Very open ended.

Whether it be more weddings, engagements, videos, websites, essays, cooking whatever!

I know that when I am pushing myself to be creative and make things is when I am at my best. It’s when I feel the most inspired and motivated and the greatest sense of purpose.

2013 has been an incredible year for me in that regard. Photos, films, websites, The Open Window Exchange, and so much more.

So here’s to a creative 2014!

The Taylors

It’s always a joy to photograph friends. And I had the pleasure to do just that one Christmas Day of all times!

I met up with Shelby, an old school friend, and her husband Josh and son Noah to take some family photos on what turned out to be a gorgeous day.

Have a look!
