| Throwback Thursday | 2015 in Review

December 31, 2015

If 2015 is the year that I jumped, then 2016 will be the year that I learn how to swim. But this year, good lawd, this year

Now I know, I know that I’ve been scatterbrained and sporadic and adventurous and brave (or so you tell me) and I jump. Boy, can I jump. The thing is that when I’m in, you had better be-liiieve that I am all in. In friendships, in relationships, in all of the feels… it cuts in deep down to my very core. It’s the only way that I know how, it’s the only way I know how to exist.

So, yes. I’ve done some crazy shit. I haven’t stayed still in any one location for the past four years. I move a lot and I take the more immersive route to living in any one location. Until that one time I was homeless for two months with my man, Jay, and called a different city (sometimes state) our new home for each night as we paraded through National Parks and skateparks (and I was a nervous wreck each time we left the dog in the car if it was over 70 degrees). It was crazy, it was wild, it was fun, it was intense in all the good and all the bad ways it could possibly be. (Our book is still available to be pre-ordered here if you want more of our shenanigans, artwork and photographs or maybe you just like to see our faces, who knows?).

I relocated. Again. This time from Seattle, WA right on back to Portland, OR because I left my goddamned heart here and couldn’t stay away for very long.

Then there’s photography. Be still, my heart. After years and years of being a hobbyist and honestly, too much of a pansy to take a risk, I leaped to my heart’s uttermost content and with you, my darling friends, I soared. After few and far in between gigs, I did the thing and became a wedding photographer.

Did I mention how much I love love? Did I mention just how completely full my heart is after every small intimate affair or soirée? I’m elated, I’m ecstatic, my heart bursts at the seams and I’m moved to joyful tears just about every. damn. time. So to you, my past clients and current friends and possibly even future would-be clients (hi there! what are you waiting for? Let’s talk!), I owe this and so much more to you.

So here it is. My 2015 year in review. From all the travels, relocations, heartfelt weddings, insane locations, crying fathers, beaming brides… join the ride.
