Hi friends! So, this morning I woke up, went to church, ate lunch, and was feeling really inspired to share bit of my personal life. These are little snap shots of my new space! One of my biggest passions is creating a space that brings a lot of light, love, rest and inspiration. I'm living in a 3 bedroom with 2 other housemates/friends. We moved into this place a month ago, and I've had so much fun recollecting and organizing a few of my favorite things.

Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have my own room again to completely make my own. I haven't had a space like this in about 3 years. During the World Race, I lived out of a backpack for 11 months and the Lord truly taught me how to live in the joy of living with less. After the WR, I moved in with my grandparents for 1.5 years while I was getting my life back together as my family would say. Everything in my home has a place and a purpose and I'm hoping that I will continue to live a minimalistic lifestyle, basically forever. My love for plants never went away and that's the one thing that I love to have an abundance of. Lately, I feel as though I rarely share much of my personal life on here, and this morning I was inspired to do so. Working 40+ hours a week, it's a rare moment in time so spend the ENTIRE day at home to just enjoy it. 

Also, if you have any questions about design inspiration or styling or where I got anything, I'm an open book. Just ask! Also, I feel as though my blogging skills have gotten so rusty, but I still love to do it, so please let me know what you'd like to see/hear/read more about. I love receiving feedback -- beedeephoto@icloud.com. I hope everyone has a great week, I can't believe that March 1st is on Thursday. HOW?

Warmly, B.

This year is off to an overwhelming, yet satisfying start. There's so much to look forward to. I woke up and decided that it's time to start shooting and it's time to start blogging again. No matter how busy my life is, it's not showing any signs of slowing down, so I've got to MAKE the time to do what I love. THIS. We're only halfway into January and I'm pumped for what's to come ... starting with these two. Days like this one bring me so much joy because of the people in it. Living a life of intentionality and creativity involve constant pursuit and loving people well, through whatever form of gifting you bring to the table. Jenny and Bogus are a one of a kind pair. They are both incredibly funny, sweet and dynamic in their own unique way. I'm so glad that we got to take advantage of the soft winter light, and ended the day with a little bit of sun! Definitely more photo shoots to come.

Warmly, B.

I had the intention of writing this blog a few weeks after my birthday, but time slipped away and LIFE, just life. Lately, the phrase, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another” has been my anthem as of late. Seriously. Autumn/Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, as it is most people’s. Because it stands out above all the other seasons. It’s DIFFERENT. I love walking out and seeing glorious colors every day. Northern California has incredible trees, the weather has finally dropped in temperature from our triple digit summer. Coffee always tastes better this time of year, and the gloomy days beckon us to enjoy the great indoors. 

However, this season there were a lot of hard realities to face. My first car finally broke down on me as I was driving to work. I knew that this day was coming, but I was praying “just a couple of more months.” However, it was time. My little golden nugget of a Nissan Sentra had a good, long life. We had so many good memories together.

Both of my grandparents went to the hospital this month. They’re doing okay now. It’s pretty crazy how much the circle of life is true. I’m grateful for everyday that I get to spend with them. So many people have been praying for my family and it means the world to me. As much as you can, let the people in your life know how much you love them. It’s so important. Tomorrow is never promised, to anyone, ever. Life is such a gift.

Warmly, Bee

Wandering Heart

From last week -- capturing the soft, autumn light with my sweet friend, Case. My camera is starting to feel like home in my hands again. It's been an interesting year of ups and downs. Falling in and out of love with photography, and words, and progress. Sacramento has been growing on me this past year. I love finding hidden gems, like Bannister Park and places that remind me of home. Whatever that word means. My wandering heart has been longing for home for many years now, and I've been learning what it truly means to be rooted. So far, what I've learned is that it means to abandon perfectionism, and accept living in the dirt sometimes, and living in the waiting. It's been a year of patience, discovery, growth and lots of love. Home is what you make it, so I'm doing my best to make it a good one.

Warmly, Bee.

Wow. It's been nearly 2 years and I think it's time to revive the good ol' blog. I've missed having a creative space to write and share what's been going on in my life.

Well, I'm back in America from the World Race. It was the most incredible year, and I've spent the last 9 months resting, reflecting and rebuilding my life once again. I'm definitely going to write a separate blog post about how my transition has been, but for now I'll just keep it short and sweet. I've been slowly picking up my camera here and there. I know that story-telling and photography will always be a part of my life, but like any relationship, it goes through many different seasons.

Spring has sprung this year. This season has brought so much joy, but also many challenges that have translated into growth. I'm so grateful for all of the relationships and friendships that have started to bloom in my life. 2017 has been a year of transition so far, but Jesus continues to shower His love over it all and constantly reminds me that He's got my back no matter what. Here's a glimpse of Bryan and Jessica's fun little shoot that I was able to capture earlier this spring! More posts and updates coming your way soon!

Warmly, Bee.
