happy first birthday silas 🐕
i thought about getting you a party hat and torturing you with a photo, but then i started looking back on over a thousand photos/videos of your first year and this one to me shows (for one how red you are) and two, you in a moment where you are happiest taking in the view.
i adore you and your fluffy self more than you’ll ever know. here’s to many more times spent looking super majestic on these mountain tops and making everyone laugh with your goofy personality. as long as you’re around to bring me joy, i promise to do the same for you.
you’re the goodest doggo.
Doing selfie-ish things today 🌿

Here are the photos from my cover story in July’s issue of Bold Life Magazine. One of the best feelings is when I can tie together my editorial photography and writing with nature. This story is about the importance of protecting old growth forests, no matter how big or small. It was so much fun exploring and learning from Emily, the senior naturalist at Chimney Rock State Park as we hiked beneath these giants. The title of the feature is “Giant Responsibilities” — because that’s what we have. We need to look after our planet and nurture it just as it has done for us. @chimneyrocknc
