Waldo Lake Sunset⁠ I have been camping at Waldo Lake with family and friends on Labor Day Weekend for 12 years. In all that time...this is the sunset I knew I might see one year.

Road trip ! 🚘 1800 km en une semaine, toute seule au volant, même pas peur ! Enfin si, un peu quand même 🙈 Ce road trip s’est super bien déroulé et cette merveille de Jeep Cherokee louée chez @enterprise y est pour quelque chose ! Je vous conseille d’ailleurs vivement ce loueur, en tout cas l’agence de Portland. Tres professionnels et accueillants. ~ #roadtrip #roadtripusa #enterprise #portland #portlandoregon #portlandnw #pdxlife #pdxnow #portlandia #oregonnw #discoveroregon #traveloregon #thepeoplescoast #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #upperleftcoast #pnwexplored #pnwlife #pacificnorthwest #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #instapassport #solotraveler #solotravel #lesfrançaisvoyagent #francaisauxusa #bordeauxmaville

Who loves Queen?🙋🏽‍♀️ I remember the first time I heard 🎵I Want to Break Free and didn’t know at the time it was going to be my theme song for the year, maybe for the decade. And by “breaking free” I mean free from my own ropes that aren’t real. I DO believe in structure and order but I also know that without chaos, you cannot create something new. Out of the ashes of old, dead ideas, so to speak, you can burst out fresh and unchained. I wonder if there’s anything YOU feel chained to? “I’m not a ‘social’ person.” “I’m not smart enough for that.” “I could never say what I’m thinking.” “I am not brave enough.” “I don’t have talent.” Do like Freddie: BREAK FREE You are a powerful being with potential to be great. Everyone is.

The best seat in the house! Such a treat, the show and meal. The chef, crew, and wait staff were so friendly as I took it all in. I had the grilled black cod salad. The fish was so fresh and done to perfection, it practically melted in my mouth.

So I’ve had a pretty long hiatus from Instagram and it’s mainly been due to work. I’ve still been taking photos but just haven’t had time or energy to post. I don’t know if anyone noticed but @steven_andrew_photography and did a live Instagram last weekend and we talked photography and it was a lot of fun and we are going to do it again, so I’ll keep everyone posted on when that’s going to happen. But Steven challenged me to post my next 3 posts as black and white so here is the first one. #oregonexplored #traveloregon #all2epic #oregonnw #houseoftones #youroregon #cascadiaexplored #exploregon #upperleftusa #portlandnw #pnwonderland #jj_oregon #exploreoregon #northwestisbest #youcaninportland #pnwdiscovered #thatoregonlife #thatpnwlife #upperleftliving #collectivelynorthwest #naturaloregon #thenwadventure #conqueroregon #pnwpride #allbeauty_addiction #mykgw #outinoregon #pnwadventures #westbysouthwest #pnwisbeautiful

I always admire women who can casually drop a "hey girl, heyyyy" 🙆🏼‍♀️ while sounding/being completely genuine. That's not me. But I'll say it from time to time simply because it is funny and out of character for me. So, heyyyy. This is my face, back in March or April🤔, while visiting the southern Oregon coast. It is truly gorgeous anywhere along the Oregon coast, so if you haven't been yet, GO THERE. And invite me along to take pictures, of course.🙋🏼‍♀️ Let's do fun facts about Elli. ×I love The Office and have watched it all more times than I'd like to admit. ×Once you're my friend you are stuck with me for life. ×I am a very observant person by nature. I view it as a skill. Like, I can tell you what color shoes the lady in the cereal isle was wearing at Fred Meyer last week. ×My dream job is to be a police officer. One day! (I have immense respect & gratitude for our first responders and military too). Anywho, just saying heyyyy (😂) and dropping another photo with an orange pop of color because I want it to match, ya know, feed consistency, yada yada. Working on it. If you want to drop a random fact about yourself in the comments, please do and say hi! 👇🏼 Have a beautiful night and thanks for reading my ramble. 🧡 . . . . . . . . . #gettoknowme #oregonphotographer #pnwphotographer #upperleftusa #oregonportraitphotographer #oregoncoastphotographer #oregoncoast #goldenhour #sunflares #oregonorange #madethatup #lol #randomthoughts #muchlove_ig #authenticlove #authenticartists #youdoyou #reallife #unfilteredthoughts #oregonexplored #oregonphotography #willamettevalleyphotographer #centraloregonphotographer #getoutside #floppyhat #butfirst #letmetakeaselfie #okimdonenow Photo cred to a best of mine: Faith N.

“Don’t compare your life to others. There is no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it’s their time” A good reminder for us all. True happiness will never be accomplished if you concern yourself with what others do. Your life is meant to be lived how you choose, not a duplication of someone else’s. Strive to be the best you can be and pay no attention to what others do or have. Have a thoughtful evening friends 💙🍂💛🍁 #oregon #oregonnw #oregonlife #oregonlove #oregonexplored #exploreoregon #easternoregon #portland #portlandoregon #pdx #kgwweather #jj_oregon #pnw #pnwlife #pnwonderland #pnwphotographer #pnwescapes #pnwcrew #cascadiaexplored #tree #tree_magic #tree_brilliance #nature_brilliance #earth #natgeoyourshot #pendleton #autumn #fall #photography #nature

Do you ever feel alone in a room full of people? Does anxiety creep in and take up space in your head and body? Hey, me too. My experience in nature is completely different. I feel balanced, energized and calm. I escaped to the trees and the nearest mountain with my dogs today as soon as I left work. Highlights reel: 🌲 Driving through towering pines 📻 Listening to old school blues and dance hall 🌄 Hiking to the top of Marys Peak in a thick, misty layer of fog 🍃🍂 Observing the changing landscape all around me 🌲 🌲 Don’t ever feel bad about making time for yourself. It’s worth your well-being. ✨ ✨ #selfcare #selflove #selfworth #health #healthcare #healthy #love #nature #naturetherapy #naturephotography #iphonography #fog #foggy #mountain #mist #thick #pnw #exploregon #oregonexplored #womenwhohike #outdoorwomen #getoutside #takeahike #everydamnday #woof #pine #wanderlust #corvallis #corvallisoregon #anxiety

Sometimes I try to explain to people why I find it so exhilarating to get up at 4am and drive a few hours in the dark to catch the sunrise somewhere beautiful, but really you just gotta experience it. . . . #trilliumlake #mthood #mounthood #columbiarivergorge #columbiagorge #hoodriver #hoodriveroregon #oregonexplored #jj_oregon #pnwcrew #omht #choosemountains #timberlinelodge #onlyinoregon #pnwadventures #staypnw #oregonphotographer #pnwdiscovered #hikingadventures #pnwisbeautiful

That was one sunrise in the beginning of this year. I strongly started to believe that there is a guaranteed chance we will get at least one good colorful surise in New year week.. It happened last two years.
