What Lies Beneath...

posted on: Friday, November 15, 2013

My talented, brilliant, and passionate friend, Megan Gilger, recently was invited to speak in front of an audience of creative business-owners and she created these hand-drawn designs (you can purchase them here) to go with it. I felt like she could have created them just for us and our new brand. Sometimes it's funny how our lives align with those of others isn't it? So, inspired by her beautiful drawings, I wanted to take a moment to share a little bit about the people and the passion underneath this blog and By The Robinsons.

Wedding photographers, family photographers, vendors, commercial photographers... collaborators. 

It's about more than a genre. If you look closer, you'll notice a thread woven through all the work we do as By The Robinsons, and that thread is a life well lived. By consciously trying to collect moments, not things, in our own lives, we are building a treasury of moments that wouldn't have existed if we were just going through the motions every day. Pouring ourselves into our creative work with reckless authenticity, we dig deep into the love stories of our couples, into the feelings and the stories of our families, and into the ethos of the brands we create for. And that authenticity allows us convey feelings and messages in our work. A feeling like you know the people in the photos. A photo almost like a memory of a dream. Like you were there too. Like you know these people and places. It's more than just business, it's about finding the story underneath and sharing it in a genuine and beautiful way. 

So who are we? We are a homebody and a social butterfly. We are parents. We are small business owners. We are ambitious dream dreamers. We are good food lovers. We are memory makers and documentarians. We are quality time enjoyers. We are narrative artists. We are boundary pushers. We are collaborators. 

We hope you'll stick around and get to know us better. 
We'd love to get to know you too.
