San Francisco

Took a little trip with my mom and Tim over winter break to visit my mom’s best friend and she gave Tim and I a WHOLE day to drive down the coast by ourselves

Although visiting San Fran costs an arm and a leg, 12/10 would recommend (maybe stay in San Jose or Oakland tho)

Oregon Roadtrip

Finally catching up on blog posts…. its been a busy few months HAHAHA

Since theres so much to catch up on I plan on only highlighting my best photos and shoots

So heres my Oregon roadtrip through Bend and up the coast with Tim — one of my favorite trips ever

Oregon Getaway

Tim and I were planning on hitting up Portland the weekend after Mount Rainier and mentioned it to Patrick and coincidentally he was planning on doing the same thing with Huatsern sooo Patrick got the crazy idea that we should bring ALL of our friends with us... which resulted in a hectic but incredibly fun trip to Portland and Cannon Beach all in one day.

Mount Rainier National Park

Holy cow every weekend is an adventure this summer.

A couple weekends ago, my brother, Patrick, and I spontaneously decided to go hiking to an area we werent too familiar with -- the Sunrise side of Mount Rainier.

Holy cow, we were in line to get through the gate for probably 2 whole hours. But that wait was well worth it for the incredible views and crispy fresh air.

We ended our day at Paradise and were eaten alive by the mosquitos but there were no regrets & lots and lots of great laughs + memories the whole way through.

MONICA

I've been watching Monica's Youtube videos since I was in middle school, meeting her was probably one of the most refreshing things I've experienced.. She was so down to earth and easy to talk to, we ended up mostly spending our time getting to know each other and tell each other stories the whole evening.

(12/10 would recommend DMing your fav on Instagram bc you never know if they'll DM you back and end up being friends with you)

Rattlesnake Ledge

A quick afternoon getaway to a favorite local crowded hike with Phil last week -- oh what fun it was to catch up on all things happening in our lives and our hopes and dreams :3

Lake Cushman

Patrick dragged me out of my house after that brutal hike the day before and honestly, I'm glad he did because exploring Lake Cushman never gets old and we found a pretty cool lookout while we were out there :')

Alpine Lake Adventure

I'd been wanting to go out on a hike in the Enchantments for a while, and a few weeks ago, Tim, Adam, and I finally headed out to the central cascades to hike this beautiful trail. :')

It was much more difficult than we expected but nothing TOO bad.

CALIFORNIA

I was sitting in Biology class one day bored as heck and feeling completely burnt out from school so I snapchatted Emily and asked if she wanted to go to Disneyland for Memorial Day Weekend... She immediately replied with a solid yes so after class I headed right home and booked us a flight to Orange County that same day. Fast forward a couple weeks -- we hopped on the plane & had the best 48 hour vacation of our lives. 

Abbotsford Tulips

Wow not a single shoot in April?? Who am I????

Welp, its ok because I made my comeback starting with the Abbotsford Tulip Festival... Except I lost my Raybans so that was lame.

Lake Whatcom

Hadn't seen Ian in a while so I decided to hit him up, we took a quick stop at Buffalo Exchange before heading out to Lake Whatcom and found that sweet denim jacket. I'm completely obsessed with how the photos turned out, especially the ones with the snow that lasted for 5 whole minutes! :D

Deception Pass Getaway

Took a quick trip to Deception Pass with Andrew a few weeks back for some fun at the beach & exploration! Even got to get the film camera back out again, fun fun fun!

North Cascades Sunset

Woke up to clear sunny, clear skies and had a sudden urge to go out somewhere pretty for sunset so Emily & I left Bham for Highway 20 at 3pm and got there just in time to see the sky change colors and for the weather to get much, much colder in just minutes... 

Larrabee Sunset

Of course the best way to kick off winter quarter is to watch the sunset at Larrabee State Park with every other student at WWU!

REI Squad Adventure

Headed out to Lake Cushman with Clint, Kameron, and Olivia to kick off the new year last month, little did we know before planning that it was going to be cold, windy, and pouring rain out there... Ended up for some interesting photos but definitely an unforgettable adventure.

Cape Disappointment

Tim, Lauren, and I have been planning to spend some time together over winter break since we didnt get the chance to over the summer but when it came to the actual date we planned, none of us could decide what to do and in the very last minute we all agreed to venturing all the way to the bottom corner of Washington and it was no disappointment!

Snoqualmie Wonderland

Spent the long weekend in a winter wonderland a while ago. Literally as soon as we got to the first Snoqualmie Pass exit, everything around us was covered in snow and it was such a pleasant surprise

Golden Ears Adventure

Headed out to Canada a few weeks ago to explore Golden Ears Provincial Park and I gotta say, its definitely on the top of my favorite parks list. :')

JOELLLEEEE

Joelle caught me at the perfect time, one day before moving up and I had no plans whatsoever... We headed out to Capitol State Forest to shoot sunset and it was so cold and rainy, we thought the sunset was going to be a flop but we decided to stay for an extra few minutes and the entire sky just turned from gray to orange-red!!! LOVED how the shots turned out and definitely worth almost freezing to death.

Olympics!

The final adventure before both Tim and I moved up for college... We headed out to Highway 101 early in the morning and hit as many notable spots as we could.
