Wandering in PNWonderland

October 05, 2018

Sometimes all you need to do is to turn around to find yourself surrounded in magic that you didn’t even know was surrounding you. Jaw dropping magic just like this mystical path to the beach. And then give a ‘lil squeal of excitement because what is in front of your eyes is just insanely beautiful. OK, maybe a whole bunch of OMGs!

Exploring the Oregon Coast and Portland area has been all about wandering wherever my camera takes me and unexpectedly getting lost to find myself in moments like this - - the morning sun caressing down to the earth through dreamy trees. A week and a half down, and a couple more days to go, and all I can say is WOW. From everything I had read and all the photos I had seen prepping for this trip, I knew the Oregon coast and this state was pretty, but y’all, I’m over here with my jaw hitting the sand multiple times a day!!! I just can’t wait to show you more Oregon magic oh-so-soon with my photos! Until then, here's a 'lil sneak peek!
