life comes at you fast

Matthew Bieri & Jamie Rennich
Two Kids With a Dream

Peeps. It’s me, Otis here. I know we haven’t talked in a while. I used to write you all the time back in the days of ‘The Blog’ for those of you that remember that far back, and for those of you that don’t remember it was basically me rambling on for way too long when people just wanted to see pictures. But that’s a whole different story.

I’m coming at you now with a long-read and I’ve buried the lede in about paragraph 172 so you’re going to have to hunker down to a time pre-Snapchat where our attention spans were more than fifteen seconds. I have faith in you though. I know you can soldier through this.

Souris Valley United Way Fundraiser!


Looking to book a session but are wishing that all of the proceeds would go to benefit a charity instead of to my new Rolls Royce? Well then, we’ve got the answer for you!

We’re having a one day super-special day of sessions where all proceeds go to benefit the Minot Souris Valley United Way! They are handling the booking of these sessions, so CLICK THIS GIANT LINK FOR ALL THE INFO!

Audrey Rose!

We just wanted to pass along a quick note letting all of you know that Jamie gave birth to Audrey Rose on March 13th!  She decided to arrive a little early (about five weeks), and after eleven days in the NICU she was able to go home and both her and mom are doing fantastic!

Jamie would like to thank everyone for all of the kind words & good thoughts, and we would all like to thank the incredible staff at Trinity NICU – you are all so awesome!  But enough of these words, let’s look at some pics!







A part of the o&j family, as well as a personal friend of Jamie – Kris Barnes – tragically left this world too soon in an oil field accident this past Thursday morning. A fund in his memory has been set up at Gate City Bank, and in addition donations can be made online via THIS LINK.

Our hearts ache for his family and all that loved him, and we send so much love to all who are hurting.

MuchLove –
Jamie & Matthew

The Barnes Family
