( about us )

photo of James Fox


A skilled carpenter who is almost as dedicated to his craft as he is to his family. A lover of the outdoors; when he has it his way, he wakes up while the moon is still beaming to go fishing. He cooks, he changes diapers, he builds fires. He has a sweet tooth that just won't quit and bakes a mean apple pie. Kristen has a real winner on her hands!

A web designer who lives by the mantra 'don't quit your daydream.' Former makeup artist for runway models and the occasional bridal party. She dances, she sings, she puts out fires. She devours true crime podcasts, horror films, and reruns of 'Parks and Recreation.' And yes, she also changes diapers. James sure does love this woman!

Our Story

James and Kristen met in May of 2013 on a weekend trip to the Oregon coast with friends. James fell for Kristen's laugh and shared musical taste. Kristen was held captive by James's winning personality and crabbing skills. Years into their relationship, James and Kristen learned they were inviting a new member into their circle. Their daughter Cloa was born in March 2016, and she couldn't be any cuter / feistier. The trio love riding bikes around town and road tripping along the Pacific Northwest coast.
