Hi there — we are the McLellan Family!

Once upon a time, Sean and I were wedding photographers.  Our work brought us to shoot for clients in over a dozen different countries, and we were honored for our imagery to be featured by media such as The Today Show, CNN: Travel, and more.

Then we had kids.

It was at this point, we realized two things:

  1. We were spending way too many hours in front of the computer, and
  2. When it comes to things we put in and on our bodies: there is a ton of junk and harsh chemicals in everything.

Yes, there’s nothing like having kids to make you realize that nearly everything is trying to kill you, and you’d really like to figure out how you can stick around and be healthy as long as possible.

OK.  Maybe that is a tad bit dramatic.  But you know what I mean.

So we stopped accepting weddings to spend more time with our kids, and Sean started using his special superhuman researching skills to find the best natural ingredients to make safe, effective products that we could use in our home.

Somewhere along the way, we decided to share what he made with others and use it as a conduit to help people in need.

Nowadays, he makes things and I wrangle (err… and sometimes homeschool) all those kids I was just talking about.  I still photograph families sometimes, and we set off on adventures as much as possible.

We’re creating a life that makes us happy and living intentionally each and every day.  We hope to inspire others to do the same… and that, my friend, is what it’s all about.

  1. […] Aside from spending time with my adorable kiddos and handsome husband, I can think of nothing I’d enjoy more than helping photographers succeed. Really. Ok maybe if we could help you achieve your dreams over chocolate I’d like that even more, but you get the idea. We are creatives, and wedding photography has been the medium we have applied ourselves to for the past 9 years. Over the course of our 8 years in business, we’ve come into our own with the way we approach photography, post-processing, sales, and the whole client-to-photographer experience. We’ve seen our industry change and have grown along with it. If you’re reading this, you are likely in the photography industry as well, or are someone who aspires to be, so I don’t have to tell you that at one time or another it has been rewarding, challenging, joyful, frustrating, all-consuming, and fulfilling. There’s so much to wade through on both the photography side and the business side and if you’re feeling like it’s often hard to know where to start, I completely understand! Sean and I have been so fortunate to be able to be a part of the wedding photography industry and be paid well to do it at the same time. The resources that have been made available to us over the years to help us get there have been incredible. We feel it’s only right that we give back and how cool is it that doing that can be just as fulfilling as the journey to achieving our own dreams was to begin with? That is the purpose of our RESOURCE site. […]
