Happy Birthday, Felix! // 1-year old photo session at Tanner Springs Park

IMG_7511-2.jpg

Damiana and I have been friends online for more years than either of us can count. We grew up in different states, but now we live within a few miles of each other in NE Portland. I had so much fun meeting her, Lex, and their son Felix for the first time last weekend. We met up at Tanner Springs Park, and got the full range of Portland weather in the short time we spent there! Felix loved crawling around the park, meeting a dog that was about the same size as him, and watching the city bus roar by.

Thank you, Damiana and Lex for thinking of me for Felix's one-year-old photos! Congrats on making it through your first year of parenting—that's no small feat. And most importantly, Happy Birthday Felix! <3

Jeff and Shawna's Dreamy Wedding in the Mt. Hood National Forest

I don't normally cry at weddings....but this one got me. Jeff and Shawna's friends and family made the trek out to a very special place in the Mt. Hood Forest to celebrate their wedding day with them, and although there were a few bumps in the road (literally and figuratively), the ceremony (you know, just the most important part!!) could not have been more perfect.

Shawna found me through the Portland Hikers Facebook group and I hope to run into her, Jeff, and their pup, Willow on the trail someday!
