1. red bull music academy.

    i had the opportunity to work with red bull again a few weeks ago for a red bull music academy event. the first portion of the evening was spent at the cleaners at the ace hotel for a lecture session with music producers salvatore principato of liquid liquid, a post-punk band originated in the 80’s, and morgan geist of metro area, a brooklyn-based dance music production team. the second portion of the night was at halocene for a dance party. extremely fun night and awesome people to work around. 

     
  2. seattle in september.

    took a trip to seattle in september and recently miraculously rediscovered the photos. probably the best seattle trip to date. can’t wait for more springtime trips within the coming months. 

     
  3. san francisco.

    took a quick trip to san francisco to see some old friends this weekend. lucked out with one partial day of sunshine. blessed to have friends to visit in this beautiful city and can’t wait to return sometime in the spring or early summer!

     
  4. new.

    spent the weekend in bend to ring in the new year. yesterday afternoon we walked off our new years day headaches at pilot butte which overlooks all of bend and the cascades. it’s places like this that i’m remind how beautiful our state is. 

    once again, i step into the new year with a few resolutions and promises to myself.

    1. spend more time creating//photographing//making art.

    2. sign up for another timed race. i signed up this morning for the shamrock run. it’s a 15k that i’m certainly going to have to push myself to train for. i’m looking forward to the challenge. 

    3. don’t hold myself back. there is a quote that couldn’t ring more true — “you are the only person holding you back.” i am constantly making excuse as to why things don’t work or why i can’t or won’t do something. this year, i plan to get want it is that i want. 

    below is amie.. my main muse. happy new year, my dears!

     
  5. merry christmas from the dulcich girls!

    in august, i took a day trip down to astoria with the dulcich sisters & their mother & grandmother. as a christmas surprise gift to their father, the girls took out his old wooden boot on the columbia river and we had a fun little windblown shoot. such a beautiful day on the river and i’m so happy i get to finally get to share these great photos!

     
  6. styled.

    last friday night, i shot a project for good friend and old apple co-worker, danni cannon, and a few of her fellow art institute of portland classmates. the models were shot in clothing by local designer, adam arnold, and wore solestruck shoes. super excited about these photos and can’t wait to see the ad these talented girls come up with!

     
  7. red bull mp embassy.

    lovelitphoto:

    shooting weddings on the oregon coast is always a bit of a risk.. especially in october. however, the weather held just long enough for us to photograph beautiful fall wedding in astoria, oregon. lacey + ryan are as sweet as can be and put on a lovely evening for friends and family! cheers, you two!
