It’sssss hot spring season 💦
I’ll never get tired of watching sunrises on my favorite mountain.
After my cookie disaster I needed something soothing for my raging soul and what better then a waterfall and not just a waterfall but an intimate close-up. Can't you just feel the mist and cool air on your skin and hear the constant soothing roar of the water falling and trickling down rocks? Ahh waterfalls... I need to fill up my soul tank soon...
Apparently today is International Mountain Day; and while I appreciate everyone’s love for mountains, it’s also Wednesday. Wednesday is for waterfalls. Not mountains. It’s not Wountain Wednesday. FIGHT ME.
Post script: this was taken ON a mountain. 🗻

Been a little busy and haven’t been out to take any new photos. So heres a fun edit from a pat photo.
Some people might think I post this girl or us too much, but it’s hard not to when she’s always with me no matter where I’m shooting and is my best friend. I Couldn’t be more thankful for everything she’s done for me or how much she has supported me over the last year. How I got so lucky I have no idea, but I couldn’t be more thankful. I love you Tabetha ❤️ and I appreciate you more than anything. #myforever

I’m a happy girl because I just bought a new 💻 laptop!!! I never had one growing up because we all just shared a computer so this is my first🖤 I’m so excited to actually use Lightroom to edit my pics instead of just doing it from my phone! BTW if you haven’t checked out my Instagram highlights you can go take a look at some of the shots I’ve taken with my new lens!📸 I’m always looking for someone to model for me too😘 so if you want some pics hit me up!
Mt Hood, OR • I love coming here to watch the sunsets.
▪Drama▪ I originally edited this photo about 3 months ago and put it in my Not Self-Confident Enough To Post folder because I thought it came out too dramatic and my editing skills needed time to improve. Fast forward 3 months and I re-edited the shot only to find that I did nearly the exact same edit. This scene has spoken and it has demanded drama.
On a side note, my apologies for being MIA. Thirty minutes after getting back from Mexico I got extremely ill (thank god it didn't strike on the plane ride!) and am still recovering from it. In that time I lost 65 followers (traitors...) but I also lost 10 pounds and can almost see a two pack. Silver freaking lining.
People I meet online have always been a source of inspiration for me. I always felt pretty alone before I connected with a lot of my online buddies and now I feel more understood and happy than I ever have. Thanks for making me feel loved 💗 📸: @zacksalix
“Just one more minute, pleaseeeeeeee!!!”
I feel like as a photographer, I’m saying this statement in a childish tone to my wife far more often than I should be - this image was no exception. We went out to Cape Kiwanda to enjoy a sunset with the family, which, of course, I photographed. When the sun set fully and darkness began to creep in, we made our way down the sandy hill towards the parking lot. Once at the bottom, I took a quick glance over at the haystack only to notice two individuals standing near this rock formation.
I asked my wife if I could take just one more photo and she, reluctantly, agreed. I set up my tripod, honed in my settings, and began composing my image. I just love how the split in the rocks leads the eye to the haystack. I waited patiently for the tide to come in and began firing off shots as it was receding, ultimately settling on the image below. Simple yet beautiful, in my opinion.
What do you think?

Let’s see how many kids I can piss off today!
Inspired by yesterday’s bullshittery, I want to take a second to talk about copyright and common courtesy. If you use another photographer’s, or any other form of artist, work then you HAVE to credit them. It’s not just a nicety, it’s law. We work hard to create our art, and it is our property. Don’t use it without giving proper credit. If someone uses your work on here without permission, report it immediately and let’s see if @Instagram
will finally get off their ass and listen to us for once.
