best of 2017

this year has been one of the most exhilarating, unexpected, and exciting years of my life. I made a goal last January to visit two foreign countries, & ended up visiting 7. I had goals for weddings & shoots & visions & dreams & ended up meeting all of them, for the most part. I'm so thankful for all that I saw this year, for all I was able to do, & for those that helped me get there. To everyone who supported me & helped make my dreams come true, thank you thank you thank you! 

lauren bondi: blogger | portland

lately, i've seemed to have so many wonderful blogger ladies come through Portland & book me for a session while they're in town! i think that's the coolest thing. love working with these ladies & hearing a bit about what they do & what they're passionate about.

lauren lives in st. louis & blogs about health + mindfulness & is working on making the move out to oregon! loved getting to know her a bit & taking her portraits. she's the prettiest!

okay, woah. this year was absolutely wild. i moved from akron, ohio to portland, oregon just 11 months ago & in that 11 months i have grown & changed & seen so much.

i am so so incredibly thankful for all of the wonderful clients who worked with me this year & i am so thankful for this beautiful world that the most wonderful Creator made for us.

i wanted to put together a blog post with an image from favorite shoots / trips from chronological months this year. i hope you enjoy it!
