Documentary Family Photography / Preserving Memories

First Clients in a Small Town at the Cherry County Fair

I had a great job with amazing benefits + on track for a prolific career. There was one problem: I wasn’t happy. I wanted to pursue photography full time, but knew it was selfish to do that to my family. Still, my amazing, supportive wife encouraged me to do so and I put in my […]

The End of an Iconic Toy Store Generation: Farewell Toys “R” Us

It’s weird how strong of an effect a brand has on people. Whether it’s Nike for athletes or Disney for families, brands have cultivated a staple in our culture. I’d argue that these brands hit a fever pitch during my childhood. Nike’s ads were plastered with Michael Jordan, Disney targeted families during a renaissance of […]

This episode is for everyone – whether you’re in business or not, whether you’re a photographer or not – because it’s all about energy. I’m not going all health & fitness on you. Nope! I’m talking about what lights you up – your play – and how you can experience more of that. This conversation […]

An Iconic Photo of “The Bubblegum Lady”

I have a story about bubblegum and a picture to go with the story that shows how amazing photos are, and how important our job is. This is my grandma – probably my favorite person in the universe. We lived in a small town of fewer than 3000 people. Everyone in town knew of her. […]

#012 – Connection Without an Agenda

When was the last time you connected with others – whether in business or everyday life – without an agenda? You just checked in to say hello and asked, “How are you doing?” or “How’s that one thing going?” for no other reason than for the sake of connection? I ask, because, I’ve been going […]

#011 – Assessing the Damage (and the Good Stuff)

Eboni, who was our guest in the last ep + our Community Ambassador, is the one who gave me the idea for today’s episode. I was on the phone with her, ranting about some stuff that’s been bothering me and later on, telling her how I didn’t have an idea narrowed down for ep 011 […]

Documentary Family Photography - Medium Reading

What Psychic Mediums Can Do For Your Business Mindset

A year ago, if you told me to book a reading with a psychic medium, I would’ve told you I didn’t want to waste my money. I remember friends and even my mom getting local readings years ago and I thought they were just the cheesiest thing ever. Highly skeptical. Last year, I got into conversations […]

This episode’s guest is very near + dear to my heart – the words don’t seem enough for this intro! Eboni Rivera is our Community Ambassador here at Fearless and Framed®.

#009 – Life-Proof Your Business

Do you ever feel like your business is at a complete stand still if you’re not working – behind the laptop, the lens – whatever that looks like for you? I’ve been there. I listened to this podcast a long time ago, I don’t remember which one, but they had Mariah Coz, Founder of Femtreprenuer. […]

#008 – Loosen Your Grip

A surgery prep call with the hospital prompted me to explore the question: How do you cope with stress?  My response was: I look at what’s happening and take one step forward. But, what does that look like? THAT’S what I explore in this ep. The woman on the phone meant stress in terms of […]
