Portland, thank you for always treating me so good.

(I know, I know.. I’m never not behind the camera.. so when i am complete dorkiness ensues!)

food, from a cart.. yep. amazing.

(fabric at $186/yd is fun to look at, and touch.. but that’s it)

cutest little dress shop, featuring Twigs & Honey (swoon!)

I will so be visiting this place again when we do more home projects, 2 huge buildings of just house stuff.. i got lost and it was well worth it.. plus I grabbed a cupboard to do a chalkboard tutorial over at {just.lovely.things} later this week!

a crazy little store called Scraps, umm 25cent yards of fabric.. yes, please and thank you!

Headed over to the Belmont side of town for a little cupcake adventure

These buttons are going to look great on some of the new {just.lovely.things} hair accessories that I’m working on this week.. This shop was adorable and the name is super witty..
Noun: A persons place for things.. seriously smart thinking!

A fun weekend, with not enough photos.. but still worth it.

>i turn my camera on =)


Tune in to Thursdays..

>the dying art


Like a lot of photographers I have embraced digital for many reasons: its easy, instant and for the most part consistent and without too many errors.. but I started with film, I was trained in using manual camera settings and developing my own photographs.. in college I had a million plans to build my own darkroom in whatever house I lived in (but i was a drunk college kid, Carlo Rossi and Djarum Blacks were more important).  I one day would love to get into film for my paid professional shoots but its strange how much it scares me to do it unless I’m doing it for myself.  So currently I shoot holga just for fun, but with my ever growing vintage camera collection I know I will pop film into one of them and start shooting again.  Next up will be how to convince my husband to turn a corner of the basement into a darkroom for me, I can imagine it being 2pm the sunniest day of the year and there I am in a little red space, shaking a canister while slowly counting to myself.. smelling like photo-flo or stop bath.



My camera didnt care too much about this bride and groom it had other things on its mind!
*attention future clients i care about you and your wedding day, this was just too funny not to post up*


newest business card design! simple, yet fun.. i like em, how about you?

>just a little love..


Kristin and Mike are getting married in just a few short months and we decided to meet up on New Years Day to take some photos.. We ventured out to the little 3 block town of Pottsville Oregon on a beautiful day.. it had snowed the night before and although the ground was covered, the sun was shining!

and just like always my clients have a little fun!

>the things they left behind


I’m in complete and total awe over these images today!  Can you imagine the way those places must be life to see in person?  The smells, the dust & the things you want to touch, but afraid they will crumble.  How is it, that people once occupied these buildings and left only to leave such things behind…
Every one of these locations is a dream shooting place for me! Gah if I were only closer!



Ok Mr. SmartyPants.. good job!
Now I want/need/love/desire/lust/must have one of these! thanks =)

>just the way you are..


As you may remember from the American Honey engagement shoot, that I was very excited to shoot this wedding for Emily & Carl after how much I loved the session I had with them.  On a chilly, but beautiful December day, I couldn’t have asked for a more smooth wedding to be at.  From the relaxed bridesmaids and hilarious groomsmen, to the perfectly simple design of the venue and the love between the new bride and groom, it was everything I could have asked for and I was so happy to be apart of it!
