Portland | Spring Break

Last March, I flew out to Oregon two days before my birthday for my spring break. There was no way I was going to stay around in freezing New Hampshire for an entire free week in March, so off to Oregon I went! I've made it a tradition to spend my birthday with my favorite people/photographers and I wasn't going to break the streak. I also got to create three images for my senior project while out west, please take a look at them here! I am still so proud of them. The trip was so amazing, so thank you to everyone who made it so great.

So first things first, I love this guy with the whole of my heart. He's the reason I made the trip out to Portland again and even though I havent hugged him since then, he remains a close friend and I love him to pieces. Thank you, Rob, for being in my life and being so amazing.

There is nothing like sunset on the west coast.

I love this dog. And on the morning of my birthday, he came and cuddled with me. (He's Kindra's, if you didn't know.)

I know this is blurry (and a Snapchat screenshot) but here's the short version of a funny story: Natalie Kucken and Brendon Burton, both amazing photographers, just happened to show up at Powell's (AKA the most amazing bookstore ever) at the same time as we did on my birthday. So cool right!? So Brendon put on my birthday crown.

Can't you tell I love waterfalls? And Oregon has so many of them, its amazing.

Rob and I made a new friend on his street.

If you've never been to a cat cafe, you really should.

This is, by far, my very favorite waterfall now. So secluded, and the area is stunning.

Say hello to the best person I met on my first trip out to Portland, Aislin! I braved the bus by myself so I could see her again.
