North Portland 

North Portland is home to two of the most stunning parks in all of Portland. Cathedral and Peninsula parks are two of our favorites to shoot at. Both are well known and well loved by locals and visitors (and photographers). The east side location of Voodoo Doughnuts was a surprise treat we only recently found. Quirky and fun but not overly crowded like the West side location. It makes a delicious treat after a long day of exploring the city.
