Wow, these last few weeks have been some of the best, busiest weeks I"ve experienced in a long time. I have so many shots of my amazing clients to share, including TWO trash the dress sessions (check out Kristen's site for a preview!), an adorable kid shoot, and tons of really romantic engagement shoots. But first, some photos from my recent travels!

My main man and I headed to Portland for a conference and wow, what a great city! And it's so green all over downtown.

Here's a park right in the middle of downtown:

and here's a cute guy at a resturant on the 30th floor of a downtown building:

and here's me

and for crying out loud, can the onion rings get any bigger??

I tried fish for the first time ever (other than fish sticks) before we left

And then we were off to Chicago. We took a group of college students to the regional Passion conference (which was amazing, btw... check 'em out at I didn't get any good shots of the conference because there was no flash photography allowed in the arena, which really didn't matter because my iPhone doesn't have a flash. Yeah, that's right. Jon bought me an iPhone for my birthday!
There's that cute guy again on a lunch break somewhere in Illinois

matching sweatshirts

all photos courtesy of my kick-butt birthday present.

Jon looks really good with red hair.

You look amazing in that restaurant photo!

There's a pretty big part of me that wants to move to Portland...but I have never visited. Lame of me. Your picture only makes that desire stronger!

Jennifer said...

Um, did I understand you correctly??

These photos were from your IPhone??? Even the one of you in the restaurant???

You are correct! All photos were taken with my iPhone. It's not so great in low light, but in normal lighting situations, it rocks :).
