Prepping

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I woke up today and realized that I hit the road in exactly 3 weeks. To say I am excited would be the understatement of the year. I am happy to report that my stress level is far lower than I had anticipated. Although, I did have dreams about killing bunnies and my teeth falling out last night, which may or may not indicate stress depending on how you analyze dreams. Weirdo dreams aside, things seem to be coming together magically. Just a few more photo session that I had booked ages ago, one monumental goodbye to my 20's and a beach wedding then, I am outta here!

In anticipation for making my life as smooth as possible on the road, I have been trying to think ahead and prep as much stuff as possible before I leave. Today I am working on addressing postcards and envelopes for all of you who will be getting your rewards during my trip! Don't worry though, no filling out the postcard commentary until I am in the full swing of my travels and I have some fun stories to share with all of you.

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
