I’ve started this blog a few times and really don’t know how to write it. I have a wild amount of nervousness and excitement about our new venture. For the past 14 years we’ve stayed firmly planted in the Nashville area, the longest I’ve ever lived in one place. I went to school here, met my husband here, had my babies here and started my professional photography career. I am SO thankful for all of my clients that helped to build this insane, wild ride that I call my business.
Over the past 4 years, we’ve been traveling the country and considering if we could call each city “home”. We learned very quickly that we weren’t fond of raising our family in a big city, because we both grew up in small towns, but we wanted to be close to an airport so we could continue to travel with our kids and by ourselves as well. What TGR and I came to realize is that it doesn’t matter where we live. We’ll be happy wherever we plant our roots. My mom just purchased a ranch on 20+ acres, outside of the Ozark National Forest, and we spent the past week touring the area. All that I had viewed of Arkansas, up until this point, was the barren nothingness of I-40 which was not exactly where we wanted to live. But, oh, we fell in love with the area north of the interstate with the gorgeous rolling hills and rivers woven in between them. We found a a few properties with 10+ acres and enough room for my little ones to run free….and room for me to build a natural light studio.
So what does that mean for my clients? I’ll be posting specific location details once the house deal is finalized and we set a firm move date. There is no change for wedding clients (because all of my weddings are travel locations this year) and I’m only accepting Nashville area portrait sessions until mid-June and May is already full. If you would like a session before we move PLEASE do not wait to book it because only April and a handful of June dates are still available. I will be shooting one day of mini sessions in the fall (when I’m back for a wedding in Sept.) and that date will be announced on April 1st @ 9am. Add us on Facebook for news and announcements about this new chapter in our lives!
Here’s a little peek at one of the homes that we toured!
