I can’t believe it’s been a month since Heidi’s passing. In some ways it feels like it’s been much longer, and yet at the same time, it feels like it was just yesterday. I would say most of my interactions with people over the past month start with the question, “How are you and the girls doing?” An easy question and yet not easy to answer in a passing conversation. Usually I answer “OK” or “We’re managing” and then measure […]
Much like a stream forced to change its course to the ocean, the last couple of years of life have been filled with plenty of adjustments on our journey. This past week was yet another change in course. The company I work for, Rose Publishing, was acquired by Hendrickson Publishing. So what does that mean? On April 10th this year Rose will close its California offices and move to Massachusetts and I–as well as many others–will be laid off. However, […]
Saying 2016 was a horrible and forgettable year is a trendy thing to say and I won’t follow suit. I will say this year has been bittersweet. Yes it was a painful and unsettling year but it was also a time of experiencing many wonderful and unforgettable things. As my wife Heidi’s fight with stage IV breast cancer continued to progress we were able to make some great memories as a family, and go on some spectacular trips like our […]
El Niño may not have hit Southern California like the experts thought it would this winter, but we still get our occasional storms. This picture captured a break in a winter storm near Malibu, California. Click here to purchase a print
Reflecting on this year and its many highs and lows is a good reminder that life rarely goes the way you want it. Our trip to Yosemite in the Tuolumne Meadows region this past summer is a good example of having to readjust. My wife, Heidi, and I planned our first backpack together in seven years for the Fourth of July weekend. It was to mark the new chapter in our lives, especially Heidi’s for beating breast cancer the previous […]
Bodie is a ghost town just off of highway 395 about 75 miles south of Lake Tahoe. Because of it’s location in a dry cold high-altitude climate it’s surprisingly well preserved. As a state park, and the Bodie foundation there is constant work to keep the structures as they were when they were abandoned. Click here to order a print.

Looking back on our trip to Yosemite back in July it seems like a lifetime ago. We entered Yosemite from the East entrance through Tioga Pass to explore the Tuolume Meadows portion of the park. Little did we know we were going witness a very cold summer storm all weekend. Or first photo stop was at Olmstead Point where I was hoping to get a sunset shot of Half Dome. We found this fast moving storm filling the valley instead. […]
Here’s another photo from our family trip to Colorado, specifically this one was taken in Steamboat Springs. While we were doing our family photoshoot with Heidi’s cousin, Kel Elwood we had a pocket of sunlight break through the storm clouds that produced this moment. Click here to order a print.
Last month we had wonderful family trip driving through Colorado visiting family. We capped off the trip with a photo shoot with Heidi’s cousin in Steamboat Springs on a stormy afternoon. I pulled out my camera while the girls were being photographed and caught this moment. Click here to order a print.
