I got to head back to one of my favorite places in Oregon, Tamolitch/Blue Pool. It is seriously one of the most PNW-y places I’ve been: a trail covered in a canopy of fir trees that meanders along the chilly Mckenzie River. At the end, a beautiful deep blue lagoon and a rocky rim to explore along. It seriously makes me so happy to live in Oregon. And I was so excited when Katie and Marshaun wanted to do some photos there! I used to coach Katie in soccer, and her and her boyfriend are seriously the cutest couple.

I had so much fun hiking and talking about college and what their plans are for the new year. These two just laughed and giggled the whole shoot, they made it so easy! We also shared our many photos of our rescue pets, so we bonded instantly, haha.

Katie and Marshaun, I had so much fun with you two at Blue Pool!
