Big Move Baby Step

As of April 13th Sarah and I no longer live in Hanford. We have moved to Fresno. The new apartment is very awesome! As well as our office will be downstairs with a street access store-front. The majority of our clients come from Fresno, so this puts us much closer to them. It’s located in […]

Michelle - Welcome to Fresno! Lived here all my life so I can relate to so much of your feelings about leaving Hanford. I’d love to welcome you and Sarah with coffee or lunch. One of my favorite is Dusty Buns on Wed at Kaiser’s farmers mrkt. If your up to meeting a new friend, contact me!

Darlene - Adam Allen,
How proud of you and Sarah am I!!! I have watched (and read) you grow over the years! It is with such pleasure and delight to see you and Sarah embark on a new chapter in life. You can be sure that God will be with you every step of the way. Just imagine all the adventures that await you! You will make new friends, maybe even look for a new church body. And why can’t you know the names of your neighbors and UPS or Fed EX man in Fresno??? I imagine that before too very long, you and Sarah will know the names and some personal information about those who work/own those “hole-in-the-wall” places you mentioned in your blog. You, Adam Adam and Sarah, are very personable and I believe before very long that 3 story apartment will be known as
“the place that Adam Allen and Sarah live”, or “Oh, yeah, I know where Adam Allan and Sarah Photography is located!” Great for both of you for taking that step of faith. That very first step is sometimes the hardest! Enjoy my friends, and keep us updated on who you meet and how they touched your heart!!! With Love, Darlene

Three Year Anniversary! And the lessons learned there in

As of today March 14, 2012 I have been a photographer for three years. Praise God, I’m sincerely excited to share the story of this last year. I’ve learned so much about myself, photographic expression, and photographic technique. Before I get into that, I want to say thank you to some people. First to Sarah […]

Wendy - I am quite thankful for the chain of events that allowed me to “meet” you. You have helped me tremendously and I wanted to sit down and read this post when I had time and not rush through it on my phone. I wholeheartedly agree with what you said above. For three glorious years, I poured my heart and soul out to the world with my blog. In the past year and a half that I’ve photographed, I placed my “worth” on what other people have said or commented, often times feeling like I was losing my special style because the comments became fewer and further in between.

Lately I post almost nothing and focus on what I truly love. Kudos to you and your wife for your amazing journey together. Thank you for being you.

God Bless,

Wendy from Canada

Angela - i love that your quest has become about who you are in God. We find true meaning in all we do through him and that no matter what the world says the Heavens will declare His truth. Live it.
