My brother-in-law Gino is looking into getting into modeling and acting, and he asked me to take some photos for his portfolio. I was so excited to have the opportunity to help him out, as well as be able to add these to my portfolio. We took 2 days to get some shots. These are from day one of our photo shoot. He definitely has a great look, some even say he looks like Harry Styles ;)
Drinking tea in the morning is becoming a habit that I greatly enjoy. My favorite tea is Earl Grey with a splash of milk. Yum!

OREGON TRIP DAY FOUR (PART ONE)
HIKING THE SALMON RIVER TRAIL
On the fourth day of our trip, we wanted to take it a little easy. We got up and had made breakfast, and then spent the morning doing our own thing. I spent my time reading, which is something I don’t do very often. It’s fun to try new things when you are on vacation. ;)
After a relaxing morning, we headed out exploring to see what we could find. We ended finding this trail not far from the house we were staying in. The trail was called the Salmon River Trail, and it was a true representation of the greenness you here about Oregon. I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was. It del like we were walking in a fairy tale dream land. I was waiting for fairies to come out from behind the trees, or a white rabbit to start dashing by us. It was indeed a good find during our trip.
OREGON TRIP DAY THREE (PART TWO)
GOATS & CHEESE
After spending the morning downtown Portland we wanted to head over to Hawthorne to do a little shopping. On our way there we saw the Belmont Goats, grazing in the middle of the city. I had to get out and take their photos. They were so adorable, and it was cool to see farm animals chilling in what probably used to be a parking lot.
Once we arrived on Hawthorne st, I saw a sign that said cheese and I just had to follow it down the alley way. I’m so glad I did, because it was the best food cart I’ve ever experienced. I’m a big fan of cheese plates, so this place was perfect for me. Cheese & Crack serves delicious cheese and crackers. The best was the brie brûlée with the rustic butter crackers. We also had the italian herb potato soup to warm us up.
If only there could be a Cheese & Crack in Palo Alto. I guess I’ll just have to go back to Portland to visit very soon :)
OREGON TRIP DAY THREE PART ONE - COFFEE & DONUTS
We headed into Portland on day three of our trip to Oregon. We were determined to have some good coffee and donuts. We started the day off at Stumptown Coffee Roasters, where I would enjoy one of the best cappuccino’s I’ve ever tasted. I think I’m still having dreams about how creamy it was.
After that we headed off to Blue Star Donuts. We had planned on checking out Voodoo Donuts, but received an anonymous tip from a local that Blue Star was where it was at. The atmosphere alone was worth the trip there, but the donuts were definitely the reason I’m glad we went. We ordered 4 donuts and shared them all, passing them around like we were at a donut tasting.
I would definitely recommend both Stumptown and Blue Star if you are traveling to Portland anytime soon. The both together made for a cozy morning hanging out in the city.
OREGON DAY TWO - MULTNOMAH FALLS
Day Two of our travels in Oregon led us to Multnomah Falls. The falls are extremely beautiful and a must see if traveling to Oregon. You can even hike to the top of them. Although, we didn’t quit make it to the top. We decided to stop and have a portrait session instead :)
