when I first arrived to yesterday’s protest, it was silent. protesters kneeled in silence for nearly 9 minutes representing the time the Minneapolis police officer had his knee pressed against George Floyd’s neck, choking and killing him. the only thing that could be heard was the honking of cars in support passing by, and the birds chirping. it was peaceful, it was silent. 🖤 #blacklivesmatter • • • • • #icantbreathe #protest #oregon #rip #ripgeorgefloyd #portlandphotographer #protestsigns #protests #proud #oregonphotographer #forestgrove #blm #istandwithyou #portrait #portraitphotography #portraits #photography #photograph #photo #awareness #blacklivesmatter✊🏾

[Rejoice! African Dance Diaspora, led and directed by Oluyinka Akinjioli, performed at the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (@picapdx) on Feb 13, 2020. The performance, which has been featured by publications such as TED, Oregonian, and Oregon ArtsWatch, was an intricate look into the lives and struggles of Black and POC Americans, to include themes of sexism, rape, slavery, feminism and micro-aggressions. The work was empowering and sobering—in part to the excellent set design and lighting, use of color, and the words spoken by the performers.

GROWTH DOESN’T END! ✨⁣ ⁣ I’ve seen so many posts this week of people diving deeper into education about the world, our country, and its many issues. There has been so much growth and change in how people view so many things. It makes me excited for the future but I also wanted to take a moment to tell my seniors and really anyone listening that your strive for growth and understanding should never stop! ⭐️ ⁣ ⁣ Go into your next chapter of life with an open mind and always focus on how you can be a better person. A better person to yourself and everyone you interact with!! The amount of growth I’ve experienced after graduating high school is truly astronomical and has made me a better person in so many ways. 💛⁣ ⁣ Take some time today to think about the kind of person you want to be, the kind of world you want to live in, and how you’re going to make the most out of each day you have on this planet 🌎 Feel free to comment your thoughts below or share this post with a friend and potentially inspire them to do the same! ✨

The moon is something we all have in common. It’s universal. ⁣ ⁣ The first time I watched the movie Dear John I fell in love with the scene where they both put their thumb up to the moon, to remind themselves no matter how far apart they were physically they could look at the same moon together. ⁣ ⁣ No matter what is happening in the world the moon stays the same. Next time you admire the moon think about all the other people around the world, who are looking at the same moon as you!⁣ ⁣

I ask all of my couples what their “worst date” was, because it’s usually a really funny story that gets some great laughs in front of the camera. For these two their “worst date” was actually the day they found this very spot, the spot they decided to be married in. & that just stuck with me, because are there really and truly terrible, horrible, no good, bad days, when you’re with the one you love ❤️

At the end of the day these are the moments that matter. The joy. The laughing so hard that your knees buckle into the arms of someone who will do anything to keep you smiling for the rest of your life.

WHITE COATS FOR BLACK LIVES Click the link 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾 https://blacklivesmatter.com . . I had the opportunity to participate in #OHSU ‘s standing with #BlackLivesMatter media protest. This is the 1st of 3 photos taken of medical student Jasmine, who identifies as Diné and Nahiłí (black). . Being a fellow POC and indigenous to this land, I too stand with #BLM to support the “mission to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.” . F**k systemic racism ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

Sandy hut has been serving the community of Portland since 1923. A place where people can relax and forget about some of their problems for a little while. It's a historic Portland landmark and forever will be. . . . #Portland #portlandpdx #portlandpdxpeople #portlandoregon #pdxphotographer #pdx #pdxavsquad #pdxsmallbusiness #cityscapes #sandyhutportland #sandyhut #oregon #oregonlife #oregonexplored #pdxeats #pdxexplored #burnside #eastburnside #photographer #photooftheday #photographysouls #photographylove #love #city #portlandphotographer #citylife #cityphotography #cityview #oregonhomemag #oregonphotography

new life brings new hope. and my hope is that when the babies being born during this time are able to look back, they see how this was a turning point in history. and they can’t even believe there was ever a time where people of color were treated so poorly and unfairly. i’m doing my part to make this a reality. are you?

Another shot of Mumford & Sons rocking the Rose Garden (Moda Center) back in 2013. It has been fun going back through old concert photos. More to come...
