Clive went from 3 to 4 :)

Who knew sending all my digital bodies into Canon last month would make me feel like I don’t want them anymore?

Studio 1342 wedding photos: Sarah and Greg

No one takes selflies with my dad, but my dad isn’t Amos of Famous Amos Cookies, either :)


Aside from being professional hashtagraphers, Sarah and Greg both received Ph.D’s in hugs and swearing so I followed them around last Saturday in Los Angeles, watched them grab their bleepin’ loved ones, and took pictures.

I wouldn’t have expected a lesser day from the inventors of #marrythatshit.

Oh, and Hello Gem killed it.

So did Erica at 10.11.

Ruth Harris - Dear Bobby I knew you were a genius when I saw the pictures you did for my granddaughter Courtney's wedding, and that impression was only reinforced after I viewed these fantastic photos of my other granddaughter Sarah's wedding. You are not only a gifted photographer but a very, very nice young man. I enjoyed talking to you and hearing about your wonderful family. I send my very best wishes and love to them as well as you, for giving me pictures to treasure and remember forever. Ruth HarrisOctober 11, 2014 - 2:56 pm

Christine Harris-Amos - Dear Bobby, I have just figured out how to get all the photos on my Mom's Facebook account and am so very thrilled and excited to see the day evolve through your photos. Mom and I just cried and were very happy. I actually did not take as many as I wanted, as I thought I was having camera issues, but it was meant to be that I have fun and just be present. You took over and gave us all the fun happenings at the wedding. I enjoyed talking with you and look forward to one day meeting your wonderful family. You could tell how proud and loved they are by you. I send blessings and love to you all. Again, thank you so very much for giving me these wonderful memories of Sarah and Greg with all our friends and family on their magical day! ChristineOctober 30, 2014 - 10:01 am

Otis Laury - The pictures of Sarah's wedding are fabulous. Thanks for sharing.January 27, 2015 - 11:06 am

Andrew Fleming - So good, bro :)February 6, 2015 - 7:28 pm

Low tide in pictures. High tide in spirit :)

A few days ago, I posted on my personal Facebook about this last 16 months of crazy medical issues Lindsay has been having (coming right on the heels of my own difficult battles with Crohn’s) and coming out about her diagnosis, why she hid it, and how we’ve both finally come to accept it. The goal was to let so many friends and family, who knew there were issues but had no clue of the severity, about her life so that they could help pull her out of her personal prison. Thousands of Facebook shares and dollars I never implied we wanted later… I just can’t believe the outpouring of love we’ve received.

We have extremely low lows a lot of the time. Most of the time for 2014, in fact. However, the bits of beauty that we do get to experience as a family burst and shine like fireworks. It’s the kind of warmth that you feel from the top of your head to the tip of your toenails. It’s more real than any other feeling we feel. As low as the lows get, these highs are almost too high to process, if that makes sense. It’s as if we get a shot of gratitude, love, and reflection all in one family gathering. Sometimes it’s only a 20 minute window amidst 5 days of being apart. Other times, we cry tears of joy after getting a full day with each other.

These last 10 days have been particularly tough. Lindsay’s parents, who’ve rescued us time and time again by doing things like flying out and staying with us for a month or, in this case, getting fed up with insurance repeatedly turning down a promising procedure (that her neurologist insists she have) to the point of calling our doctor’s office behind our back, setting up the appointment, and arranging payment. We simply get a text from them saying “you have an appointment at the end of the month!

That’s just how they are :)

Lindsay’s neurologist is the physician who got Botox injections approved through the FDA for Chronic Migraine. He’s the leading expert and has administered it medically more than any other physician. We got lucky with our referral to him. At the end of June, he gave Lindsay 31 injections of botox in her neck, skull, temples… all over. At the end of July, Lindsay saw incredible progress. She had migraines every second of each day but I believe just 9 attack days in July. And ttack days that weren’t so intense that I had to keep Clive away from her, to boot (it’s not good for a 3 year old to see his mother writing in pain; unable to respond properly to his concern). She even took Clive for one entire day — all by herself — and they swooned over each other every second.

It was magical.

On August 9th, however, the botox wore off and she’s been in a painful attack ever since. It’s like being forced into running a marathon in your off season; we’re very out of shape, at the moment. Our next appointment for botox is the end of September. It feels too far for us to make it — but I know we will. And in the midst of all the badness, we will find the goodness and focus on it like a laser beam during the moments where Lindsay can focus :)

These last 10 days have certainly been unkind; but it’s been so much easier to squeeze good out of the bad given the level of support we’ve received. My first job, providing for my family and protecting them from all the harm that I am able, has been made much easier because of what so many of you have done. So thank you to all of you who’ve helped my wife feel less alone. That has helped me immensely. If you’d like to encourage her more regularly, here’s her instagram. Often times, that’s her link to the real world and other people. And these last few days with so much support have been incredible for her :)


This was a great day. We took Clive to see seals and the tide pools at La Jolla for the first time. Lindsay had enough ability to focus that she was able to shoot for the first time in a good while. So much gratitude for the time we spent together this day :)

Kristen - While I don't know y'all, your story has definitely touched me (as I'm sure it has many others). I so very much hope that there will, someday, hopefully sooner, be something that can help your sweet wife and in the meantime that y'all are able to experience nothing but an endless outpouring of love from those you have around you. I know your hearts must all be unimaginably weary, but you've got spaces in a lot of people's. Sending so many good vibes y'all's way!August 19, 2014 - 10:09 pm

Bella - Just like Kristen above me, I am truly touched by your story. I hope you guys, despite the tough conditions, are doing ok. Are you going to be in Cambodia any time this fall/winter? I am going to backpack with two friends for a few months and would love to meet up. Hugs from Sweden. BellaAugust 20, 2014 - 1:07 pm

chriselda - admittedly, i have silently followed your blog for MANY years. your trips to cambodia and thailand have always inspired me to be a better person. a better observer. i had no idea of all the trials you all are facing. you do it with such grace and beauty and even in those dark moments, you share your light to the rest of us. thank you for being so selfless. when lindsay got her first tattoo, i fell in love with it. so much so... that i have the same exact one. so... little pieces of the earle family are always with me. and now that i know your newest detours in life, you will remain in my thoughts, prayers, and warmest of wishes. thank you for always sharing of yourself with others. you really have NO idea of the legacy you are living. infinite blessings. cAugust 25, 2014 - 3:52 pm

I met Laura several years ago when I first shot for Not For Sale (my favorite anti-slavery org).

Who knew that her eventually-to-be husband, Louis, would move me to doubt my entire existence with one insane table trick?

Second to last pic for evidence.

Our dear friends, Daniel and Cindy, had a baby and they let us take peechers!!! The three of them together is too much. You should look at them…


Daniel and Cinidy, if we could give you one piece of advice; love each other above all else. Don’t fall into the silly smokescreen that disposable vs cloth diapers, nursing vs formula, cry it out vs. sleeping together… that any of these things actually matter (they matter, but you know what I mean ;). You have one big goal ahead of you — love each other. Two parents who like and love each other openly tend to raise excellent children.

The wonderful thing about this piece of unsolicited advice is that you two have this area covered. It’s one of the reasons we’ve been so excited for the day you become parents. So when other mom’s on babycenter are bragging about their sleep schedules or how their kid eats better food, just remember that if you and Daniel are loving each other daily, everything else will fall into place. Baby Cassidy is one lucky, little girl. We love you three!
