It was a challenge to shoot in this harsh lighting, but hey! Challenging was an overall theme on this hike so whatever... 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣 Tonight I’ll be going to bed around 7 to get a solid 6 hours of sleep for an epic sunrise hike with @soozzeeqq and @gtr_mike. Nothing beats that soft morning light... Stay tuned! 💁🏼‍♀️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . #themountainsarecalling #choosemountains #mindthemountains #optoutside #exploremore #thatPNWlife #herPNWlife #PNWisbest #pacificnorthwest #upperleftUSA #briskoutdoors #werehikers #adventureenthusiasts #naturetherapy #outdoortherapy #wanderwashington #adventureculture #paradise #pnwparadise #pnwonderland #topleftcorner #takeahike #neverstopexploring #everytrailconnects

HAPPY BARTER FAIRE!!! We have made this an annual trip to Tonasket, WA since 2009 and being on the road won't stop is this time either. Infact, it is the reason we have lingered in Washington for as long as we have. This will be our only post for the weekend since there isn't any service on the hill. Are there any annual events that you make sure you dont miss? Festivals or fairs? Something else? Let us know! Have a great weekend!
Missing some river time.
Feels like a lifetime ago when Jessica and I first met and started this lifelong adventure together!!! So grateful for such an amazing partner 👫❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wildernessculture #asdt #theoutbound #wanderout #adventurelife #outdooradventures #hikerlife #pnwisbest #mountaingirls #liveauthentic #thatpnwlife #womenwhohike #hiking #sheexplores #adventureenthusiasts #peoplewhohike #livetheadventure #explorewithfriends #mtnchicks #rimby #forceofnature #everytrailconnects #campvibes
Well, at least they got my good side. During the earthquake drill and evacuation yesterday, one of our photogrhers snuck a picture. #lifeinthenw #earthquakedrill #nwliving #uppernorthleft #pacificnorthleft #upperleftusa #washingtonstate #pnwisbest #lovemyjob

Hiking in the PNW frequently means hiking in clouds, fog, and rain. These low lying clouds rolled in just after we got to #TolmiePeak but thankfully we didn't get rained on! With any luck, I can do at least a short hike this weekend before our weather turns! Do you have any last hikes you want to do while it's still nice out?

Wondering what the deal is with "low profile" rings? 👉 It's all a matter of personal preference, but low set rings like these @anuevajewelry beauties can be a great fit if you have an active lifestyle or work with your hands a lot 👩⚕️because the lower the profile and prongs, the less likely the ring is to bump into things 💍Something to consider with low profile rings: sometimes the lower setting means a wedding band would not sit "flush" or right next to the ring, so there may be a gap between your engagement ring and wedding band ✨Some people love this look, others don't care, and others are anti - again, all personal preference! Some low profile rings can still sit flush with wedding bands, or you could opt for a curved or contour wedding band so it hugs the low profile ring 💕 What do you think about low profile rings? 👇 #alloftherings . . . #beaumade #engaged #engagementring #ringselfie #handmade #handmadejewelry #justsaidyes #shesaidyes #altbride #alternativebridal #uniqueengagementring #showmeyourrings #abouttosayyes #theknotrings #bridesrings #greenweddingshoes #pnw #pnwisbest #pnwonderland #seattle #madeinseattle #naturegirl #bridetobe #wedding #weddingring #diamonds #finejewelry
Looking forward to a weekend of cruising our favorite spots! Maybe even some fall time campground shenanigans! It’s been a long week, I’m truly thankful it’s Friday!🐺👫🍁🏕 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wildernessculture #asdt #theoutbound #wanderout #adventurelife #outdooradventures #hikerlife #pnwisbest #mountaingirls #liveauthentic #thatpnwlife #womenwhohike #hiking #sheexplores #adventureenthusiasts #peoplewhohike #livetheadventure #explorewithfriends #mtnchicks #rimby #forceofnature #everytrailconnects #campvibes

At the destination of our hike, we were rewarded with a pristine, majestic vista of Mt. Stuart, but if the camera had tilted down a little bit more, you’d see two muddy, sweaty people passed out on the rocks, their pockets stuffed with empty snack wrappers. 🙋‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ #hardhikebutworthit 😅 . . #hikingadventures #takeahike #pnwonderland #pnwlife #thatpnwlife #pnwcollective #ourpnw #staypnw #upperleftusa #goatworthy #choosemountains #mytinyatlas #mountainsarecalling #pnw #wildernessculture #pacificnorthwest #wanderwashington #thenwadventure #adventureawaits #lakeingalls #mtstuart #hikelife #adventureisoutthere #pnwisbest #pnwdiscovered #cascadiaexplored

Seeing my coaching tribe babes on our team's retreat in Florida this weekend has me with a bad case of FOMO😭 and reminiscing on the very first retreat (and first time I traveled for coaching!) March last year!! . While I'm not with them in person, fortunately we have this cool thing called social media (how I connected with ALL these amazingg women!!)💗 Which when used for good, provides an amazing community of support & encouragement like I've never had before with other women.💗💗 . So we work in our own homes across the country, keeping in touch through Zoom calls, messaging, and our tribe FB group📲💻 as we change lives & empower women like us through health & fitness💪🏻💃🏻✨ while bettering our own lives & our families, now and in the future.🐶👶🏻💸 . What's stopping you from joining our tribe?✨💃🏻💕 (Link in profile to join our no strings attached "sneak peek" info group!!)

“ALAN!” Sorry for my talking animals reference. I love seeing these little chipmunks on hikes. They are all so adorable, until they try to chew through my backpack and then lookout mister, those are my gummy worms! • • • • • • #pnw #pnwlife #pnwwildlife #chipmunk #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #pnwoutdoors #pnwanimals #upperleftcorner #pnwexplored #pnwadventures #pnwbyphone #pnwawareness #pnwdiscovered #pnwexplorations #pnwhikes #pnwisbest #colchuck #lakecolchuck #theenchantments #drangontailpeak #asgardpass #leavenworth #wa #washington

Looking down at Carbon River last fall. 😍 Pretty sure most my pictures are of trees and dogs. You’ll get used to it...🤷🏻‍♀️

We forget that we were never promised a twenty-year plan of action; instead, God promises multiple times in Scripture never to leave us or forsake us." - Francis Chan in Forgotten God . . . #latenightthoughts #liveauthentic #nofilter #nofilterneeded #pnwisbest #pnwonderland #pacificsunsets #sunsetlove #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #quoted #recommendedreading #francischan #forgottenGod #livelifeloved
Definitely not a bad problem to have, but I recieved my family pictures back from the amazing @castandforgephoto a couple days ago.....and let me tell you there are close to 200 photos and I pretty much love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. So be prepped for multiple posts over the next few days. 💓
If cauliflower can become pizza... you, my friend, can do anything.
First light hits the cascading mountains of north central Washington at Diablo Lake along Highway 20. It took three days, but I finally made it to Calgary, Alberta. The drive through route 20 had easily the most epic fall colors I have ever seen. Didn’t shoot them mostly just enjoyed it. That’s a drive everybody in the Pacific Northwest should experience at least once in their life time. Really happy to have gotten away the last few days and really look forward to the next week ahead. We’re not specifically on a photo excursion, but I’m going to keep pushing for the right times and places to be.

The last light.

My family don't really care much about photoshoots. Each time I would mention the word photo they would run in different directions as fast as their feet would carry them. But today they compiled and tolerated the whole 30 minutes of it. Good job guys, I am proud of you. #pnwcollective #story #autumn #almost #sweet #day #pnwwonderland #pnw #park #pnwisbest #pacificnorthwest #pnwlife #pnwphotographer #pnwa #pnwest #westernwashington #westernwa #northwestwa #northwestisbest #nature #northwest #love #life #laugh
Late summer collaboration! I still have a number of shots to share from this day! It happens to be Eryns birthday today! She is the local talent behind @wanderlovejewellery You can check out her beautiful one of a kind jewelry pieces online and at local mkts... or her see her play with her band at venues throughout BC... or check out her perform her solo stuff.... she is a busy lady, with lots of ambition who is pretty cool too! #supportlocal
“It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. The rich colours of grass and earth were intensified by the mellow light of a sun almost warm enough for spring.” P.D. James . . . This quote seemed fitting for a day we got a cold weather warning and then it was nearly 80 degrees (in October!!) for our shoot. 🙄Dar, I’m glad you didn’t get heat stroke during our session what with your thermal undershirt, long sleeve button up and bow tie. 🔥 . . . #oregonweddingphotography #oregonweddingphotographer #oregonphotographer #oregonbride #thisoregonlife #pnwphotographer #pnwisbest #northwestisbest #loveinthepnw #thisauthenticlife #authenticliving #livingauthentically #authenticphotography #authenticlovephotography #howwelove #lovestory #createportraits #createart #createartdaily #2019wedding #firstlookwedding #oregonwedding #portlandweddings #pdxphotographer
Seattle is experiencing a sort of miracle, upper 60’s and lower 70’s temps in October! It has been amazing and Toby the Wonder Dog and I have been out basking in the sunshine and taking in the fall colors at Green Lake. We have been A LOT lately. Forecast of showers starting next week - probably for the next 10 months. But for now - we enjoy! 🍂🍁☀️. #greenlake #greenlakeseattle #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwcollective #pnwdiscovered #pnwisbest #seattle #seattlelife #seattlewashington #seattlewa
Congratulations to our October Top Producers Jake and Kristina Bartlett!
I’m lucky to get to do some cool things for work and go on fun shoots, and that’s the side of my life that I post here on Instagram. But 95% of my days are pretty average, honestly sometimes less than. Your 95% is probably way cooler than mine. The highlight of my day today was literally going to the gym. Other things you won’t see on my account: my attempts at street parking and then re-parking and re-re-parking, limping around because my hips hurt, spending Friday nights alone in my apartment doing laundry and hw, and scheduling appointments at the auto shop for some repair or other (@ me today!). I love putting my work out there for the world to see, but my life is not my work. It’s not this aesthetic with bright blue tones, but s/o to the @unumdesign app for helping me curate the past 24 photos. My unphotoshopped days are messy, random, boring, not visually appealing and that’s ok. TL;DR: Don’t compare your real life to someone’s Instalife especially mine (unedited moments are for Twitter)
Off the trail..
