The first weekend of the year is here! It's been a bitterly cold, but sunny week in Portland and we've been doing our best to stay bundled. After two weeks of holiday and a trip to play in the snow at Mt. Hood (above), I slowly eased back into work with two photo shoots and a few admin tasks to wrap up the business year. Time to enjoy the weekend ahead, have a great one!

The eighth and final year in photos from the official White House photographer. Tear.
On New Year's Eve, I visited Kainos Coffee in NE Portland (pictured below), which had fantastic coffee and donates 21% of profits to orphanages in the Philippines.
