Portraits | Paul & Dan

I was super lucky to go to Portland, OR for the weekend (two weekends ago). I went to visit my friends Paul and Dan. We studied abroad together in Taiwan during the fall 2008 (ahh, 2 of my study abroad friends caught on to my mistake! Fall 2008, NOT 2009. Haha) semester! It was SO awesome to see them again and catch up! Also, the no sales tax part was pretty enticing too! I just wanted to blog these quickly before a week of two midterms! (Eeep). I miss Paul and Dan already! 🙂 And I can’t wait until we get to meet up again!

I don’t photograph boys often, so it’s always interesting! (This photoshoot also gave me enough bargaining leverage for a trip to Fabric Depot- only THE biggest fabric store on the West Coast!!!) Thanks again ;D

The very dapper Paul!

Oh, Dan is super silly! 😀 He pretends he’s a ballerina. (kidding). He was just being a goof!

Pensive Dan. (With awesome catchlights!)

Did I mention Paul is super silly too? 😀

Um, so I love tall grass!


This was a huge outdoor amphitheatre. Must be SUPER awesome in the summer!

This next one of Paul is my favourite favourite favourite!

Taken from our hotel room. I happen to think window sill portraits are interesting, and I’ve always wanted to make a portrait like so:

Thanks again for driving me around in Portland, and I seriously can’t wait to meet up again! 🙂 BUT! In other news, I’m leaving for California on Saturday (Feb 13th). While I’m there for two weeks, I’m also going to have the chance to meet up with MOOOORE study abroad friends! (I sense that I will be photographing lots! People, places and things!!!) But before then, midterms beckon.
