Z EXPORT Archives - Dangerously Good Stories

What would you do? Levi tends to strip down and drop his clothes wherever—inside out 90% of the time. The inside-out part drives me INSANE. Idk. I feel like I’m doing everyone a favor by keeping up with the laundry… the least they can do is drop off the clothes “inside right” (🤔😆) as I […]

War of the Laundry

In 2015, I was hired to mentor another photographer, Khalilah, in Hawaii. I’d never been to Hawaii, so this was a trip of a lifetime to begin with! What I didn’t expect was for Khalilah to say something that’s stuck with me to this day… We were on a highway and approaching a tunnel through […]

Words from Oahu on How to See

Have you ever surprised someone? Or has someone ever *really* surprised you? Here’s my story… On 3 Christmas Eve’s in my life, I made the 4+ hour trip from Michigan to Ohio and showed up (without warning) on my Auntie Deb + Uncle Gary’s doorstep. “Surprise! Merry Christmas!”⠀⠀ It happened as a newborn with my […]

Documenting Led to a Grand “Surprise!”

I was driving home the other day and the closeness of hitting PUBLISH on this thing was sinking in. Mixed emotions: excitement + also fear of judgement in releasing this piece of my heart here in the photography community. I think my non & new photographer listeners will feel enlightened + empowered with what they *can* […]

My Podcast Promise

We’re fully ready for the Intentional Documentary™ Podcast to go LIVE on Tuesday, April 3, 2018. Not gonna lie, it feels GOOD. We’ve got episodes in the queue for sound editing, mini mags, and new guest convos brewing. In the meantime, I want to share all the external (and internal) stuff that’s happened behind the scenes […]

The Making of the Intentional Documentaryâ„¢ Podcast

I’ve been using the phrase “simple pictures with big backstories” for a while now. Those 5 words were a 2017 divine download and could not sum up the MARIE in my work better. This has meant less emphasis on well-rounded technical skill and has anchored me in the best way. I’ve let go of trying […]

Simple Pictures with Big Backstories of 2017

My apologies if this gets a bit long – it’s a bit of a journal-esque share. 1. Humanity trumps everything. I teach you to be more of yourself in your communication and I got lost in the shuffle myself in 2017. The root cause: doing too much, too fast. My shares came from a place […]

17 Reflections in Marketing + Memories + Life from 2017

The moment I said ‘yes’ in the decision to move south, there was a pang that felt a lot like loss among the excitement of adventure. If you knew me in real life, you’d know I’m an easy going, go-with-the-flow kinda girl. I LOVE new + change. Still, when I love something hard, I have […]

Gaining Closure of a Life Change Through Making Pictures

All Dave could say was, “I’m not doing this alone.” He was perplexed by the idea of buying a 46 year old, smelly Airstream versus a newer RV with slide outs and modern amenities. I felt if we are really doing this thing – downsizing our lives – that I don’t want to go from a […]

We Began To Renovate a 1970 Airstream Ambassador and Ultimately Our Lives

Like white water rafting or flying through a good book in one sitting is for some people, Fearless and Framed® is my thrill. Truthfully, I’m the opposite of someone that experiences business burnout…. I can’t get enough. I’ve been running businesses since 2008 and though there’s been some zigging + zagging, I truly enjoy the journey. […]
