Today I arrived in Portland for a 3 night 'vacation.' The main reason I'm here is because I will be participating in a one-on-one mentor session with Katy Weaver tomorrow, and I couldn't be any more excited! Katy is an incredible photographer who I originally discovered on Instagram. I have been wanting to get more guidance with my photography, as well as the business side of things, and as soon as I realized Katy did mentor sessions here in Portland, I jumped on booking one with her. I'll get to spend more of the day with her tomorrow, and we'll finish up our session with a couples shoot, so I'll get to practice alongside her and hopefully get some great photos to add to my portfolio!
These photos are from the amazing hotel I am staying in, the Kimpton Vintage, in downtown Portland. A friend recommended using Priceline's Express Deals, where you can save a ton of money on hotels, but the catch is you don't know where you are staying until you pay! I'm so glad he recommended it to me, because it was definitely worth it.
Stay tuned, I'll post photos from our shoot soon!
