Portland Bloggers 'Strike A Pose' Recap

A little over a week ago (I know, I know, I'm sooooo behind on my posting!) we had the Portland Bloggers 'Strike a Pose' meetup event.  And let me tell you, it was AWESOME!

We met up at Jillian Rabe's The Space in the Pearl District in order to host a giant collaboration between photographers, stylists, jewelers, a makeup stylist and all kinds of Portland based bloggers.  Each blogger had the opportunity to be photographed by an area photographer with stylist on hand to learn little tips and tricks for best practices. 

Looking around at everyone's blogs in the wake of this amazing day it looks as though everyone had a great time and came away with some beautiful head shots!  Jenni, Bee, Suzannah and myself put a LOT of work into this event, so it makes my heart happy that it all came together so wonderfully.

I was blessed with the opportunity to be photographed myself!  I've admired Margaret Jacobsen's images since I first met her last summer and jumped at the opportunity to be in front of her lens.  I was hesitant at first... I mean, I'm MUCH more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, but she quickly put me at ease, and I'm so happy with the images she created.

The dress was on loan from Bettie Page.  The store manager contacted us and offered to dress a few girls for the event.  Loooooong story short, I ended up being one of the girls gussied up!  I love this dress!  It's soooooo not me, but I think that's my favorite part!  Something different, for a fun day, why not?!

The necklace I'm wearing was designed by Shannon with GlassCast and I loooooooooove it!  It went so perfectly with my outfit!
