28. Sacramento.

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.

Bryan + Jessica

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.

I just wanted to keep this short and sweet, but thank you so much for following along my sporadic journey as beedeephoto. As many of you know I'm getting ready to head off on The World Race. Words cannot describe the feelings that I mean when I write how much I love and appreciate all of the encouragement that I've received during this season of my life. This is going to be my last blog post on beedeephoto for a while. If you'd like to follow my journey along the World Race, you can subscribe here.

Love you guys, keep the faith.
