Shooting Sunrise on Camano Island

Just because it's December does not mean one must stay inside– unless you still have been procrastinating putting up a Christmas tree. (*raised hand emojii) Thursday night I reached out to a fellow loyal instagrammer and we decided we'd go shoot sunrise up north. It was my first experience meeting up with a stranger at dark, as well as walking through the woods, but i'm happy to report I am still alive! ;) IMG_6106 (1)IMG_6115 (1)

This is Calvin Blond! Check out his instagram for moody, epic landscape photography and coffee! He took the shot of the baby doe who didn't want to eat the apple I tried to give him/her.

We drove around Camano Island and decided to head east–I was craving mountains after Wednesday's adventure up at Index Wall (blog post to come). We found a family of deer, fog, and some great views up by Pilchuck.

and because you made it till the end, take away my one phrase to live by:

adventure always vsco

masquerade.

 

A combination of PVC pipes, paper, masquerade masks and some creativity during my party this weekend and you get some great results in our homemade photo booth. Here are some of my silly friends being awesome at life. These are my favorites.

Wow, lets just start off with I suck. Blogging constantly is hard. But good news is i've been focuses a lot of my time and energy into planning my travel expedition after graduation and saving up for a nice camera. Which equals more photos! Abbie just got back from Thailand and New Zealand and has convinced me to fly to New Zealand rather than Australia off the bat. We had a lovely time catching up and eating at one of my very favorite restaurants, Green Lake Bar and Grill. This place has the best. cheapest. happy hour food. and is so conveniently close by. Here are a few fun portraits that we took today.

Montana Road trip: Olloclip adventures

This weekend was purely brilliant and I am still in a daze from it. I packed completely wrong and slept most of the car ride, while the boys jammed to heavy metal and rock music. (I'm a very heavy sleeper.) Nevertheless here are some great photos on the drive up there. We stopped quite a few times to take some photos. (Okay, maybe more than a few) I also got to try out my new Olloclip, which is so neat! It's a lens you attach to your iphone to take fisheye, macro, and wide angle shots. Really highlights the beautiful camera power that Apple has designed. Here is a photo of me using it:

This is my glamorous friend, Nick.

I'll post our adventures that we had when we got to Montana later on. In the meantime I am still trying to locate all my essentials that got lost in Pete (the rabbit) on the car ride back home. This was after as we were leaving. Pretty huh?

The "Town" of Woodway

Edmonds waterfront is a prime location for viewing on a sunny day like yesterday. (Also known for restaurants like Demetris and Arnies. My friend Stella and I decided we were going to stop by my new favorite coffee shop, Red Twig and bust out some homework. This place has open mic nights every Thursday and some very awesome people who will serve you coffee. (Kitchen is usually open until 3pm, and serves paninis, quesedillas, and salads) IMG_6305_FotorIMG_6311_Fotor

The sun was too tempting however and I had to get to work, but not before we got some really cool shots up on the hill.
