Our New Puppy – MAPLE

Personal

Our new baby is here! We are overjoyed. It has been a long time coming to finally have a second dog. She is an Australian Shepard red tri puppy. She came from Hickory, NC (about an hour from Asheville). Cannot wait to see her grow and become a dog alongside of Trapper. So many photos to come.

First Grape Harvest
We had our first grape harvest! 6am start time in complete darkness to tackle 2 acres of vines in Boone, North Carolina before the rains from Hurricane Irma swept in. It was an incredible experience to see the first steps in creating wine. I wanted to stretch my video shooting/editing skills out. I love telling stories with photography and using videos is a way to diversify my skills. And I LOVE IT! This 60 second video is a preview of the high quality 3:30 minute full video.
