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!

best of 2016

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!

I'm so stoked to share all of the photos from this trip to Bend, Oregon with H Influencer Collective! These are definitely some of my new favorite shots. Also, super excited that Urban Outfitters sent me a bunch of cozy sweaters + a little Crosley speaker & they totally completed the weekend.

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.
