Traveling with a talented photographer friend like Angie Smith ensures you will have beautiful images for remembering your adventures.

A few weeks ago, Angie and I spent a weekend in Washington state on the Olympic Peninsula, spending a night at the historic Lake Quinault Lodge in the Olympic National Forest. Here are some of her photos (you can spy me in the lawn below).

For more of her work, visit angiesmithphotography.com.

Five years ago yesterday was the official launch of Paperfinger! Here are the early blog posts from that month plus the original napkin invitations that got the word out on 100 Layer Cake. I couldn’t be more grateful to have spent these last five years with Paperfinger by my side. To many more!
