For many reasons we’ve decided to use our own photos on our website, online courses, and throughout our work. Because we’re not professional photographers, you’ll notice without doubt our pictures aren’t perfect—but neither are we. Our lives aren’t perfect, our relationships aren’t perfect (like the baby marmots in the picture who seem to be arguing!), and much of our work is driven by our own mistakes and pain.

The pictures we select to share with you, however, represent moments of validation, truth, joy, contentment, happiness, and hope. Sometimes they are captured in the darkest periods of our lives, while others come along during magical mountaintop experiences. Each picture offers courage for the tough times, lessons for what’s left to learn, and a guiding light back to your best self. We hope you receive the blessing each photo is meant to send.
