Blue Door Boutique Salon | Grants Pass, Oregon

I don’t think a salon could get any cuter! Right in the heart of down town Grants Pass, Blue Door Salon is a little charm! The owners and all the ladies that work there are so fun and some of the sweetest people I know. This boutique has everything a girl could ever want…Rifle Paper, hair, nail and facial services, WINE and the prettiest clothes and accessories! Needless to say, I am so excited about this new business, it’s a charmer!

They are having an open house this Friday, September 6th from 5-7 pm

This is a poem by Stephanie, an amazing & talented writer, for Brett….

there’s something archaic, biblically striking

when after waking you say “phenomenal” to me

and nothing else for days

you lie there, chest heaving

steadily turbulent, lightness

giving wisp to desires

abstract you, absent of design

articulate in breath

there’s something beautiful about the sounds

you make to no one

(pretend i’m not here, do this now)

(call me on the phone, do this now)

my universe erupts when you obey

those sounds you make to no one

i hear them, i hear that you’re alive

i hear the husk, the grumble

i know your tongue is swishing


like honey off a spoon i perch

gasping hope for you to do

what you don’t know

(i can’t tell you how)

your elemental nature, my secrecy to lose

i conspire and design within you

unmapped tombs


Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I was wondering under what weather and time of day you take photos like this and your camera settings? I am a beginner majoring in photography!

stunning, per usual 🙂

peace & gladness

“The voice we should listen to most as we choose a vocation, is the voice that we might think we should listen to least, and that is the voice of our own gladness. What can we do that makes us the gladdest, what can we do that leaves us with the strongest sense of sailing true north and of peace, which is much of what gladness is? Is it making things with our hands out of wood or stone or paint or canvas? Or is it making something we hope like truth out of words? Or is it making people laugh or weep in a way that cleanses their spirit? I believe that if it is a thing that makes us truly glad, then it is a good thing and it is our thing and it is the calling voice that we were made to answer with our lives.” – Frederick Buechner

…one of my favorite quotes and a photo from our Kauai trip a couples years ago…

We will be in Hawaii the first week of August photographing a sweet couple and we couldn’t be more excited!!! Feeling blessed.

Ah, that is so exciting friend!
