I wanted to share some great pictures from our Spring Portland Bloggers event! We had 30 attendees plus many volunteering professionals attend to help bloggers better their image for their blogs. I cannot thank all of the volunteers and professionals enough for their time and talent in helping all of the attendees feel special and like the center of attention! We had 6 amazing photographers--not including the lovely Macey who photographed the event! Each photographer had 15-20 minutes of one-on-one time with the attendee to get some great head shots! The weather really could not have been more perfect for outdoor photography and we had the Pearl District at our disposal! This led to many amazing shots! I will do my best to link back to this post as I see photographers post their sneak peeks and shoots!

Saturday I had the opportunity to loan out a dress from one of our sponsors, Bettie Page! I almost got the black one pictured bottom left but ended up in love with the floral number above! It was so difficult to choose an outfit!! There were so many gorgeous dresses! I know I'm all about food but heck--a girl likes to get dressed up now and then! ;) We also had amazing food from Elephants Delicatessen, who provided caprese bites, cookies, and some absolutely DELICIOUS feta dip! I would love to get my hands on that feta dip recipe, and I know at least a dozen other attendees that feel the same way! All of the sponsors contributed food or clothing--and many gave jewelry, professional services, their time, or accessories for giveaways!
A big thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors. Each of these companies/individuals/blogs contributed in making the Portland Bloggers' Strike a Pose event successful and affordable.
Missed this get together but hoping to join us at the next one? Mark your calendars, and stay tuned for more information regarding our May 18th Social Media Strategies event!
