My resolution this year is to let go of the past, connect with myself, wake up, and be present. Glad I got this good dog with me for a reminder along the way ✨

Trying to make it to Big Sur for sunset
My heart this mornin’ is thinking about my moms southern cooking and waking up way too early with my sister to run downstairs towards the tree. We’d always have biscuits and gravy, salty ham, and watch a Christmas Story 😊🎄it’s those little memories, right? That’s gotta be one of the best parts about starting a family is making your own traditions.
My Christmas this year is a bit different than most years but it feels right. I’m out in the wilderness exploring some country I love deeply. So here’s to another year of counting stars ✨ 2017 wasn’t always easy but I wouldn’t change a thing

For years I’ve come to places like this to create images, to tell the story about how we love to be in the wilderness. But a few days ago I realized I wanted to be here to meditate. To walk in this field and see the mountains for themselves, not for what beauty I could extract out of them.
Taking 10 minutes out of my day to mediate has been a part of changing my life trajectory 2 degrees. A small amount right? But that little shift will land me somewhere so different when time is compounded. I find comfort in knowing it’s not about the huge drastic changes, it’s not about flipping everything on its head and doing something totally new, most of the time we just need those little 2 degrees shift in direction.
Mediating is becoming a way to put out the fires in my mind before they even start. To reframe how it see it all. To continue daily on my 2 degree shift.
What I ask myself now is how many photographs does the world need of my lovely dog? So today let’s try to not see her as a dog in a field, but instead see a photograph I created of my feeling of being. Of being in a place where the light and air fills your body from the tips of your toes and overflowing out the top of your head. Just a little reframing ✨

Being from a small Southern town I didn’t think you’d ever catch me saying this but I really love it here. It’s truly a lovely place in the world y’all. And if I had more than two nickels to rub together I’d own home right near this sand.
There’s a whole bunch of good folks out here, a lot of them I love personally. The weather is amazing. The quality of light is like no other place. Being a photographer this land makes my heart sing every sunset.
But dang it doesn’t come cheap y’all! Forever out of my budget and honestly I’m alright with that. I don’t believe a man like me is cut out for LA for too long. So I’m back to dreaming about little mountain towns, cheaper land, and open space 😊

That warm winter light brought us here, it called us to sit and enjoy the last rays of the sun.
Thanks for the #storytag @bdorts. You’re up next @hannahacarpenter! Shot on the #EOSM5 @CanonUSA

My granddaddy had this saying he’d always tell me, I’ve actually never heard another soul say the same words. Maybe you have? Anyhow, we’d be walking across his land in Pollocksville, NC, pointing towards his tobacco barn and he’d look at me squarely and say “Boy. An axe ain’t no good without a temper.” Difficult words coming from a man who was quick to raise his fist in anger.
Those sort of words shaped me. For a real long time I was out to kick the worlds butt and I sure wasn’t gonna let another man step on my toes. But now 34 years into this dance I can squarely say I ain’t ever gonna say those sort of words to my son if I’m blessed with one. I wanna teach my son that life is sweetest when your hands are open.
That sweet life is for me is running down a dirt road with a hound hot on your tail, smiling all the while. Leave the axes in the barn y’all. You can’t keep your heart soft and open if it’s always on your shoulder.
