Note: Plz contact me in advance if you want to book this Mountain Portrait Experience. Then we can find the best date and time for our trip :)) The best times for this trip is Summer and early Fall. We will meet early in the morning, before sunrise, in Packwood, WA where there is cell reception and continue driving 50 minutes to Snowgrass Flats Trailhead. It’s a 7.6 mile hike to the summit. The first 5 miles I have 3 spots planned to stop. At a footbridge I will do a mini portrait shoot with you, at another stream I will demonstrate how I take nature photos with some hands on help for anyone learning to take photos on their own camera. We will also have a snack here. Around 5 miles in, we will stop for lunch. After 5 miles, the last 2.6 miles, starts to open up with incredible views so we will make many micro stops for photo ops. The last 1/10 of a mile the trail gets rocky and a few spots of rock scrambling to get to the summit of Old Snowy. The summit is an amazing 360 view, but even below the rock scrambling is where I will do some amazing portraits with you. At the summit we will have gained 3200 feet of elevation. The 7.6 miles back to the car is a steady decline of that elevation and takes less time to get back. Average total hike time including stops and photo shoots is 7-8 hours. Starting and ending at Packwood WA is 9-10 hours. :))
There’s 3 things I love: Photography, hiking in the Cascade Mountains, and socializing with new people. My Outdoor Roots My early childhood was spent in the mountains of Montana. There’s something about being in the mountains that runs in my blood. By high school I had lived in Montana, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington and spent many nights in the surrounding wildernesses. Now, 37 years old, I am adding the Pacific Crest Trail to my list and plan to have hiked all 500 miles that pass through WA state by 2021. Occupation - Photographer Since starting a photography studio in 2006, I have done photography work for clients such as New Balance, U2 (the band), Seoul Fashion Week, domestic and international magazines, designers, and musicians. I love having the Pacific Northwest as my backyard and photographing it's mountain peaks and lakes.
I will bring individually packed dry meals, 98% organic ingredients and will bring the stove to boil water. These are much…
I will bring professional camera equipment to take wonderful portraits of you. If you don't have access to hiking gear please…
We will meet at the town of Packwood, WA at The Mountain Goat cafe. Meeting here insures that we will be able to stay in touch by phone or message. After we meet we will continue driving our own vehicles to Snowgrass Flats Trailhead. This is a gravel forest service road.

As the hike date gets near we will stay in touch about weather conditions and appropriate clothing. This is not an easy hike, not everyone can do this in a day. But if you're physically ready and mindset is there then I believe we can do it! Please msg me with any questions!
