The night of the inauguration I needed to spend some time being creative with a lovely gal, so Ashley and I got together to shoot some portraits. I had envisioned strong powerful girl power portraits and we ended up getting some lovely, soft, feminine portraits. Maybe that's what we needed after all? To add some softness to our day of mental turmoil.

I will be forever thankful for the amazing women that have blessed my life since moving to Portland. I can't wait to continue to meet amazing people this year and to make this year one full of progress, positivity and hopefulness.

Also I'll be blogging more after a little mental hiatus.
