i love Julia! she is simply my favorite. i love taking photos of her & she is the sweetest & funniest human being alive. so glad i got to spend an evening hanging with her & a couple other friends eating pizza at one of the best spots before she headed off on the rest of her road trip down the coast to Texas & Florida!
i love booking senior sessions while i travel! such a fun way to see new spots in my favorite cities & a great excuse to wake up early & catch good light while i'm out of town. loved working with jacki in san francisco! she found my work through Pinterest, which i think is super cool. love the way these all turned out!
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!
abby & jordan are so sweet! their little home in portland is absolutely precious & their kittens are adorable. they're one of those couples who just radiate love.
i love photographing people who are undeniably in love, honestly, it is my favorite thing about my job!
so stoked on this little in-home session with these lovely humans!
ashley + mark were the absolute sweetest & were SUCH a blast to work with.
they were in town from MN & are getting married up in the North Cascades this coming fall & i am so glad we were able to book a session while they were in the area.
it was pretty crazy because my flight from SF where i'd been shooting an elopement the day before, got in at 2pm the day of our session & i had to drive 3 hours straight up to the north cascades right from the airport to make it at 5pm for their engagements.
thankfully, everything went off without a flaw & we had THE BEST conditions & colors. i am in love with these photos -- definitely my favorite engagement session to date!
out-of-state clients: you make all my dreams come true! i absolutely love getting to meet people from other parts of the country & getting to capture these lovely souls.
kate is a budding musician & attends belmont university. she needed photos for her upcoming EP & i was so happy to schedule her for a session while i was in town :)
i had the privilege of heading out to Glacier National Park last week with the best crew! i'd never been before & i'm so stoked that i was able to spend some time in Montana.
we most definitely had a fair amount of misadventures such as: an accidental 11 mile hike uphill in a blizzard, a face-off with a bear, a rained-out tent, 2,000 miles with 5 people packed into a Prius, & many more. but all that being said, it was so much fun! we all had a blast. we were tired & freezing & sore but very very happy when it all came down to it.
i just got my first roll of film back! i am in love. capturing moments & waiting weeks & weeks to see them is agonizing but actually the best feeling. definitely going to be shooting a lot more film. this was on an AE1 with Kodak Max 800+++.
these were taken at Yosemite National Park, California; Portland, Oregon; The Oregon Coast; San Fransisco, California & Glacier National Park, Montana.
