A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams.
This little giggle machine has the most wild imagination I’ve ever come across. I’m always being given a character assignment within one of her make believe worlds. My favorite though is when she’s like “ok you pretend to be the mom” and I’m like 🤔😂
My office today!! 32 headshots and some team photos for Elliot, Powell, Baden & Baker! I ❤️ setting up a mobile studio 😃

I love how this fireplace blends so well with our black painted wood accent wall at this open concept living & dining room. #portlandrealestate #portlandinteriordesign #portlandphotography #homedecor #fireplace #blackaccentwall
don’t mind me just going to post these snow canyon engagements forever⭐️
i really would like to stop working forever–never work again, never do anything like the kind of work i’m doing now–and do nothing but write poetry and have leisure to spend the day outdoors and go to museums and see friends. and i’d like to keep living with someone — maybe even a man — and explore relationships that way. and cultivate my perceptions, cultivate the visionary thing in me. just a literary and quiet city-hermit existence. // Allen Ginsberg • • • • 📸: @chadmessick cut + color @taura.taura @taura.taura.hair #portlandlife #cityslicker #portlandphotography #portlandmodel #portlandportraits #blondebalayage #streetartportland #pdxmodel #pdxphotographer #pdxlife
A continuation of last week's story, of sorts - swipe for grim words (it's not graphic, but content warning: men being evil trash). Model, Styling, and Location Scouting: @bry.erly I've been so busy lately it's overwhelming. On one hand, it's the good sort of busy, and I'd rather be busy than bored, playing video games all day and wondering what the hell I'm doing with my life. Still, I'm bad at multitasking, and I feel like I'm careening wildly around, trying to juggle friendships and work and photography and my own sanity and it's all just fumbling around about to slip from my grasp and shatter on the ground one day. Still, I haven't dropped it all just yet (unless I have in fact, and I won't realize it until I've been dancing on the shattered glass for days). Happy thoughts. Speaking of happy, this week's grim-ass story is a tangential continuation of the last, from another character's perspective. I'll see if I can tie them together somewhat in the last post for this set. Will it happen? I don't know! It may! It may not! I suppose we'll find out soon... in the meantime, I'll just try to keep dancing around that glass.

Waking up early for school is a little easier when you’re looking at an 80° forecast ☀️
When I did these last year I actually did a toddler in the milk bath for one session! At first I did it just for fun because she was really jealous of her little friend doing it, but I love how the photos turned out. Obviously she looks a little big for the bucket but that’s kind of how toddlers feel, a little too big for the baby stuff but a little too small for the big kid stuff. I think that these photographs perfectly depict that transitional stage of life. No longer a baby but not quite a big kid. Sign up now to reserve weekend dates! My summer is filling up quickly and I would love to get your date reserved. #pdxphotographer #beavertonphotographer #portlandphotography #portlandphotographer #milkbathphotography #milkbath #babyphotography #babymilkbath

Private photo tour with a fun couple from Germany. Fountains are on and ready for summer!
Making waves. More recent work with @nikeswim. This was the last shot of the day, and by this point, my air tank was so empty I started to become buoyant and float up to the surface. Luckily, @marcus_swanson was right there to hold me down so I get this last shot. I love shooting underwater.
🖌 Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don't give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people.
