about this site

As everyone knows, Portland, Oregon is home to some of the world’s best and most affordable cuisine, brews most of the quality beer in the Americas and is the nation’s premiere destination to get a tattoo of a unicorn or ride a bicycle with absolutely no gears or brakes or fenders or lights.

And there’s also a lot of fun to be had as a parent. Knowing what that is and where to find it is my ongoing mission: to explore strange new playgrounds, to seek out new life and new diversions, to boldly go where thousands of parents have gone before – but have so far failed to blog prominently enough about it.

I put this site together to help other parents find new fun things to do around town, guided by my first hand experiences. If you have any suggestions for new places to list, please let me know and we’ll endeavor to check them out!

Family photography in Portland, Oregon

I’ve been a photographer since college, both amateur and professional. I take my camera wherever I go.

I specialize in family photography, here in the Portland metro area. To learn more, take a look at my professional photography site.

If you run a local business, please do consider sponsoring this site! It’s a great way to expose your family-friendly philosophy to thousands of local parents. Plus it’s very inexpensive and would make a big difference to our little family as we go about our adventures…

I built this site using WordPress. The theme is my own custom design built off FoundationPress and inspired by several others. The cute heading font is Pacifico and the body font is Muli, both courtesy of Google web fonts. The maps leverage Google’s superb map APIs. The text and photography are all mine, © 2010-2014.
