Potato Leek Soup with a twist
I'm notorious for not following recipes.  I spend most of my time in the kitchen experimenting and trying new things.  Last night I decided to use up some leeks and potatoes to make a simple soup that has been a staple in our home for years, but I spiced it...

One of the instructors I contract for my art studio does commissioned pieces that I photograph for her records.  Here are a couple of her latest pieces:

Beautiful Pain
Eminem featuring Sia
Eminem - Beautiful Pain ( Music Video ) ft. Sia

"I'm standing in the flames
And it's a beautiful kind of pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find a light, find a light, find a light....

Yesterday was the tornado warning, today is like the morning after
Your world is torn in half.
You wake and let's wait to start the mourning process
Rebuilding and you're still a work in progress.
Today is a whole new chapter, it's like an enormous ass.
The thunderstorm has passed ya.
Your weather didn't poke his eyes out with the thorn bush that you used to smell the roses.
Stopped to inhale, can't even tell your nose is stuffed.
So focused on the bright side...."

for #lyricallyinspired   by myself, +Jason Jakober  and +Tara Romasanta

Vegan Thanksgiving
I think the biggest misconception when people hear the word "vegan" is the idea that the food we eat tastes like cardboard (or it has to be a salad).  The plethora of foods out there to explore and indulge on are vast.  I think more and more are learning th...

Holy crap I played with my camera for a moment today!   Enjoying the sun for a few moments before fall is here in full effect.

Willing To Fight - by Ani DiFranco
This woman inspires me like no other.

"The windows of my soul
Are made of one way glass
Don't bother looking into my eyes
Something you want to know
Just ask, I got a dead bolt stroll
Where I'm going is clear
I won't wait for you to wonder
I'll just tell you why I'm here.....

I was a long time coming
I'll be a long time gone
you've got your whole life to do something
and that's not very long
so why don't you give me a call
when you're willing to fight
for what you think is real
for what you think is right"

+Tara Romasanta  +Jason Jakober

Tagline
I'm not getting older, I'm getting better.
Introduction
I live in the outskirts of Portland. I'm a bit eclectic... and eccentric. I don't conform, my style is ever evolving.  I've been passionate about photography my whole life, being the daughter of a woman who documented, with film, everything, and a man who was a writer and photojournalist. I don't dream to be a photographer, I am one, from deep inside my bones.

Bragging rights
I birthed 4 babies, and so far so good on raising them right. I also own and run a business. I'm an Oregonian. Born and (primarily) raised.
