Sedona, Arizona Weekend Trip

Filed in : Personal, Travel

I’ve loved the desert landscape of the Southwest since my first family vacation to the Grand Canyon & Utah many years ago.

After 9 years of dating, Talin and my brother Russell are husband & wife! They were only 13 or 14 years old when they started dating. Like many of the best couples I know, including Matt and I, they met in the school band. I remember noticing them spending time together, but back then, I […]

Road Trip Across the Southwest

Enchanted Rock

Ever since moving to Austin, I’ve heard all about Enchanted Rock– a giant, pink granite rock formation outside of Fredericksburg, Texas. On a whim, I decided to check it out this weekend. There are all sorts of stories about the rock– from indians hiding there to avoid Anglo settlers and being drawn to its spiritual and magical […]

Stars Over West Texas

Filed in : Personal, Travel

Last night some of my photography coworkers and I traveled about an hour away to a cool little spot outside of Dickens, Texas to take some photos of stars. It’s a really neat area that overlooks a huge canyon, and I sometimes stop there when traveling between Lubbock to Dallas. It was the perfect place […]

This weekend my photographer coworkers at the DT and I drove to White Sands National Monument and Park in New Mexico. We’ve been talking about going for a couple years and it’s never worked out, but we finally made the trip out there for the first day of spring break. The great thing about traveling […]
