I was showing someone my portfolio the other day, and noted that this gentleman, Doug Lynch, designed the Portland flag. He--like many people--didn't know Portland had a flag. And here it is! It was adopted in 1969. Doug Lynch was a noted designer in Oregon, and his work is still seen in many places, including Timberline Lodge. I photographed him in 2007, for PNCA, 2 years before his passing.

Setting the scene. Off to shoot on the Washington side this evening.
Appreciation Post🌸 Its crazy to think that just over 2 years ago, this gorgeous lady booked me for her wedding day. We immediately hit it off, gabbing away about every last wedding detail and I thought to myself, “Wow, this bride is seriously so fun, we need to be best friends!” Come to find out that she is also a wedding photographer, and she loves snacks and cats just as much as I do (this was an important detail in the process of becoming best friends) And that’s just what happened! We’re now the best of friends AND we actually get to work together! Its crazy to think that we went from total strangers, to best friends in such a short amount of time. We can spend HOURS talking each others heads off until we both have migraines and feel like we’re dying. We call it the “Sara(h) Hangover”. This is not an exaggeration, we literally get hangovers after being with each other. 🤦🏼♀️ Basically the moral of this story is, find a friend that you have so much fun with, they literally give you a hangover the next day. 💕 @sarahfrenchphotography
When all it takes to be the happiest little human in the all the land is a little "1-2-3... Weeeeeeee!!" Oh to be a kiddo again!!!

This is my husband and I. We’ve been hitched since 2012. It hasn’t been all newlywed bliss but it’s certainly become richer, especially through this last year. I’m super grateful to document moments with him, and I hope when my kids see our photos together as they grow up, they see a fierce love that would do anything for the other. My plan is for our kids to have plenty of moments frozen of us together, so they can look back with pride and joy knowing we really had fun. Sure, there will be hard times and imperfect memories too, but what binds us tightly together is love. It’s in the mending of the imperfection where love is strengthened. Photography is so special to me and SO much more than snapping pictures, and I am grateful for photography friends willing to document our little family as well.

Первый раз попробовал снять видео.
🍔Что я могу сказать? Это очень большой труд! Действительно, видео заниматься куда тяжелее, чем фото. Это и подбирать точку съемки с упором, что ты не будешь двигаться, и настройка камеры, фокус, монтаж. Про подбор музыки - вообще молчу!
🍔Если я когда либо говорил, что видео - это очень просто, то - беру слова назад.
🍔p.s. не слишком строго, все жеэто мой первый опыт

out here goal crushing today (not photog related). one month ago I decided on a whim I wanted to run a 5k. prior to deciding this i wouldn’t even been able to tell you the last time I ran at all. with a little under a month to prepare I followed a 5k training program from @annie___mayfitness , stopped eating sugar and anything fast food related, and cut out all caffeine and alcohol. today I ran my first 5k. The Dirty Dozen. a muddy obstacle course 5k. my last 5k I ran on the treadmill training this week I did in 33:34 so I set a goal of an hour for this one. AND I TOTALLY CRUSHED THAT TIME. I ran The Dirty Dozen in 45 minutes today. It was the hardest run I ever have done and it felt like I had been out there for much longer than an hour. I remained encouraged by my husband who ran along side me the entire time. At the end of the race we celebrated with a victory beer🍻here’s to many more races in our future.

Also this lovely gal is an amazing artist & is doing a giveaway. Go show her some luv ✨
You guys I have been SO SLOW at getting on social media, replying to emails, and just tackling my big list of to dos. Sometimes life just gets so overwhelming, work is crazy, and it’s a struggle to do everyday things. I’m learning (kind of) 😉 how to take a step back, take breaks, and value my health over getting more things done. I hope you all have a relaxing weekend and I can’t wait to share behind the scenes of my first official wedding of the season tomorrow! 🎉
