Sometimes do you ever wonder to yourself, “This is what I do for a living?”

…Because I do!

I spent the better part of last night making basically a picture of myself on fire, then at some point I stopped and realized how odd my life is at times. I followed this very helpful tutorial. Judging from my before and after, you might guess that the first step is to take a very unflattering picture of yourself- and you may be right.

But in all seriousness, I’m so lucky to work with such fun clients who let me really play with our assignments. It’s a bit kooky, but it’s a great way to make a living. I’m so excited to put this image to use for a client- stay tuned!

Manic Monday

Hello there!

Although I had vowed to spend as much time as I could on my couch last weekend, it proved to be a busy time, punctuated with lots of work! Which is good. I am so lucky to have so many great clients at the moment, and my creative muscles are definitely getting quite a stretch!

(I did, however, manage to eat pretty well)

Given all the quality computer time, though, I also set aside quite a few links for today’s post. Here you go:

Finger Lickin’ Good.

The other day I was lucky enough to have a client with delicious food who needed more pictures.

This was one of the best breakfasts of my life. If you’re in the Portland area, I cannot recommend the Circa 33 weekend brunch enough. For more images of this feast, visit my portfolio!

Feeling like: Minnie Mouse

It’s been a little while since I’ve done any outfit posts, and frankly it’s not because I haven’t had cute outfits. (Just kidding. But I have been really busy 🙂

Today’s outfit was inspired a bit by Minnie Mouse. I love that polka-dots are in fashion, obviously. And I also happen to love reds in the fall. This outfit is a combination of both, perfect for meeting up with a client at a coffee shop, or heading to my more corporate gig out in LO. 

Now if only I could convince myself to act a little more corporate and less goofy… gif animator
