I'm sad that February is over so I can't look at the Scandinavian map on my @riflepaperco calendar anymore, but you can bet I'll be framing it ASAP to hang in our home once we get to Texas! ▫️ I'm actually mostly German, but I've really connected with my Scandinavian heritage in recent years, and especially my family's history from Norway (I even took Norwegian my first two years of college!) Visiting Scandinavia is at the very top of my travel bucket list 🇳🇴🇸🇪🇫🇮
Happy #weddingwednesday! Courtney and Jacob are going to be parents soon to a precious baby girl, and I'm SO excited for them!
I don't even know how many times I've forgotten to share these AMAZING @toms that @mlearepp got me, but I'm finally sharing them! I'm seriously obsessed, especially because yes, that's a matching bandanna for Roscoe that came with the shoes too. Now we just need a nice streak of dry weather for a some matching Mommy Roscoe pictures! #dogmomaf
It feels good that it's not quite as cold out, but this little guy is upset there's no more snow for him to play in! Happy Monday, everyone!
I have some VERY exciting news to share! As many of my clients may know, I am also a student studying psychology (graduated with my B.S. in December, yay!) and I am so excited to share that I have accepted an offer to a Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program in Texas! Becoming a clinical psychologist who uses EEG/fMRI to research anxiety disorders has been the big dream of mine for awhile now, and I'm so thankful that I'm going to be able to fully pursue it! So, what does this mean for my photography business? I'm very grateful that I've been able to balance my schooling and photography for as long as I have now, but I know that this will no longer be the case when I'm in my Ph.D. program. I need to be able to throw 110% of myself into my big dream. I'll still be continuing to take pictures (don't worry!), but it will be at a more personal level. You can expect my blog and website to move away from sessions and towards the look and feel of a lifestyle blog, possibly with a print shop highlighting my favorite personal work pictures. Also, what does all this mean in terms of booking sessions in Virginia? Currently, I'm continuing to take sessions until the end of April (we'll be moving early May) and I will communicate more details with everyone about availability as they become available! Most importantly, thank you to all of my past and current clients for supporting this little business of mine. It truly does mean the world, and I'm going to miss all of my Virginia clients!
It was rainy on Saturday, but the sun came out for Rachel and Andrew's maternity session on Sunday! Rachel's flower crown paired with her dress was EVERYTHING!
Being by the mountains will always make me feel a little closer to home. I still can't believe that THIS was the view I had on the way to high school every day.
Chilly weather makes for the perfect time to cozy up in a sweater and take pictures with the one you love!
