    75. The unthinkable has happened

    Hey Friends

    So... after years of never saying it was going to happen, it did.  We got a dog.  Crazy right?

    In this episode we talk about how we got there, our history with animals, our current animals, and the kids with animals.  We're taking a break from work and just... enjoying what it's like to be dog parents and cat room mates.  Sit back, relax, and get ready because we couldn't stop laughing.

    73. Kids and Technology: Where are your limits?

    Hey Friends!

    Kid today, AMIRITE? The technology they're growing up with is outstanding.  But where do we draw the line?  And at what age? We want to go over a few different technology options that we use to help limit our children's exposure while also making sure they are safe and getting what they need for school.  Oh Yeah.  School.  SO MUCH SCREEN TIME! What do we do?  We talk about that too.

    So settle in, parents. 

    Thanks!

    71. Get thee to Yosemite

    71. Get thee to Yosemite

    Hello Friends!

    This week we're talking wonders of Yosemite.  Seriously.  It's amazing.  If you haven't gone, you absolutely need to.  However, there are a couple things you might want to check first.  Like the park website.  It's going to let you know what areas/roads are closed.  And that will be important.  So listen in.

    We talk about a very serendipitous moment in the part that was super awesome.  And then the recovery in San Francisco and what it means to fly from the West Coast to the East.  Spoilers: it's rough.

    Be sure to check out the blog post for tips and tricks for shooting in the park.  Thanks!

Love Listening While Driving

This podcast is so fun to listen to. I drive quite a bit and love listening while I’m in my car. It feels like you’re sitting right there with them. I also love hearing about the different photographers and how they got started and their lives in their part of the country.

I enjoy getting to know the artist behind the beautiful work I see on social media and I love learning little tips and tricks to implement into my own work. Keep it up girls!
