Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!

Cozying Up by the Fire | A Thanksgiving “Staycation” | Portland Lifestyle Photography

I’m writing this from the sweet space of a quiet living room, a crackling fire in front of me, and a steamy mug of Tazo Zen tea to my right. It’s about as close to perfect as I can describe for a space to decompress, catch up, and take some time to breathe. The past few days have […]
