WEEKEND REVIEW: Maternity Pix, Family, & Westworld

DSC_0022

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was very busy and filled with fun family time.

When I was pregnant with Adley, for some reason I decided that I didn’t want to do maternity photos.  But I didn’t want to miss out on the chance to take them this time around so my family and I decided to get professional photos done this weekend.

I am so glad that I decided to do these because I felt absolutely BEAUTIFUL and my photographer truly captured me and my personality.  She hasn’t sent me all the final edits yet, but here is a little glimpse into our amazing photo shoot. (More can be found on Instagram as she sends me more)   Shout out to Cris Stroud for hooking me up! For more info about my photographer click here

In other news, I am working on a MASSIVE photography project that is really going to change the game in terms of photography in Portland.  I am launching the 1st Annual POP Awards (Professionals of Photography Awards).

This event will showcase the incredible creative talent that we have here in Portland and honor them with various awards in photography.  In addition to giving away awards,  this event will be working in partnership with Zel Haiti, a mom owned non-profit that supports women and children in need in Haiti.  Click the link to learn more about them.

For more information about my event and how to nominate a photographer, please click this link.   I can’t wait for this fun event. Of course, this will be unlike other award galas.  It will be done in the Sarah way.  Over the top and out of the box.  This year’s theme is “Millenial Pink.”   Not only will it make a difference in many lives, but it is pushing me to a level in my career that I did not anticipate.  I’m up for the challenge!!!

Also, I’m super excited because we had some family come into town and they are thinking about moving to PORTLAND!  As someone from Portland, I think it is absolutely CRAZY to move from sunny San Diego.  However, even though Portland is expensive, California is ridiculously overpriced and overcrowded and by moving here they can have a MUCH better quality of life financially, more bang for their buck, and of course be surrounded by US.   If anyone has some tips for moving to Portland and want to share please put them in the comments.  I’m sure they will appreciate it.

Did anyone catch Westworld’s season 2 premiere?  I’m dying to watch it. NO SPOILERS PLEASE!

And if you haven’t gotten on the Westworld bandwagon yet, you need to ASAP.  It is basically like if Jurassic Park were people instead of dinosaurs.  It all sounds good resurrecting dinosaurs and creating a theme park until everything goes wrong.  Same concept here. Literally a twisted theme park of sorts with humanoid robots and the crazy humans who created them in an old western society. It is such an incredible and very thought provoking show.  The show is violent and pretty wild so keep the kids away from the TV when watching this.  Moisturize your mind and get on it!!!! My husband and I are completely OBSESSED.

WHEW!!! Did that all really happen in one weekend? Yes… yes it did.  And I wouldn’t change a single second of it.
