& this is [almost] everything I care about in one photo. We'll be spending lots of quality time together, so it's important that we're a good fit.
Keep on reading to see if I'm your girl!
J. is my very best friend! We are high school sweethearts and have been together for over 11 years and married for over 5 years. He is my number one fan. He is also the inspiration for starting TBP and following my dreams. Over a year ago, J. made the decision to follow his dream and break away from the normal 9-5 job. Seeing him chase after his dreams inspired me to move towards mine. Thank you for everything you
do and always listening to my wild ideas and being willing to stand by my side while we try each and every single one!
Get to know my family!
ollie & bax
Ollie and Baxter are our two furbabies who we love more than ourselves. They are the light of our lives and we truly don’t remember what life was like before they joined the family. Oliver is the eldest and he is the biggest daddy’s boy to exist ever. He loves J. more than anything and always has to be touching him. Baxter is a big baby who is afraid of just about everything. But, this is why we love him. It’s so cliché, but they truly rescued us and showed us what we were missing. They make our hearts full and they are spoiled rotten.
Oh, and this is Viv...
in 2019, j., ollie, bax, and i moved into our self-converted van, vivian.
We lived in her full time for 6 months and traveled from Colorado to Oregon to the Canadian Rockies to the Midwest to Florida to South Carolina. It was the greatest adventure of our lives thus far! Living in a van was nothing like we expected, but it was everything we needed to start creating a way of life that made us feel in control and happy. In the midst of all the chaos that goes into living in a mobile vehicle, we found clarity in so many ways.
top 3 things we learned living in a van
Vanlife is not all that it seems... there are many challenges, but it is so so worth the experience
Material things are not the source of happiness and going minimalistic is amazing
Living so intentionally (and in such close quarters) brought us closer together than we could have ever expected
the best part? you get to meet her!
If you’re wondering what we did with Viv after moving back to a more stationary lifestyle, we kept her! She is still the biggest member of the family and we use her for weekend trips.
She’s our only vehicle so she will definitely make an appearance at your session - with J. probably creeping around somewhere because I’m terrified to drive Viv. At 20 ft, she’s a long girl! One of these days I’ll get the hang of it! Until then, J. is TBP’s honorary chauffeur.
We also care about...
TBP is inclusive of all people regardless of race, age, gender, or sexual orientation. Every person and couple are unique, and I am here to share your story. No matter who you are, what you look like or who you love, you are welcome here!
At TBP, nature is our biggest inspiration which is why it is imperative that we protect, conserve, and respect the environments that we visit. The beautiful places we are so fortunate to explore and say “I Do” will only continue to be beautiful if we all do our part in protecting, conserving,
and respecting them.
