{Real Party} Portland Bloggers’ Strike a Pose Event Pt. 1

Disclaimer: This post features companies that donated to the Portland Bloggers meet-up group and items that I received free of charge. All opinions are my own.

Almost a month back we had our latest Portland Bloggers’ meet-up. If you have no idea what I am talking about then check out the Portland Bloggers’ website and hop back on over here! This will be a photo heavy post with some beautiful images from Portland Photographer Macey Snelson of Motormouth Studio. Read on for my review of the event and links to more about the event and Portland Bloggers!

Food was provided by Elephants Deli— They had beautiful presentation on their party platters… check out the little cheese knives!

Elephants Deli cookies are amazing. And, the flowers on the tray came from the deli as well!
Shannon from GlassCast brought some of her hand crafted jewelry to the event and gave away an item as well!
Erin from Chloe + Isabel brought jewelry for attendees to wear in the photos and a pair of earrings to giveaway!
Checking people in as they entered— I was a little over excited and accidentally blocked the door!
Check out all the awesome in one room!

Portland Bloggers’ March Meet-Up Review:

We change up the theme every other month so that we can benefit different bloggers each time and celebrate different local businesses each time. This past meet-up’s theme was “Strike a Pose.” We wanted to help bloggers learn a few tips and tricks on how to create better self images for their blogs. We had SEVEN amazing Portland photographers and four stylists donate their time and talent at the event. They gave tips and tricks to bloggers and then styled and photographed each of the attendees. Everyone got a few new head shots. We also had a hair/makeup genius as well as three local accessory/jewelry designers join us in the fun. PLEASE check out the sponsors’ pages below.
