Remember that time I had a photography business but I didn't touch its website for months on end? Yeah, I do. I literally have 15 sessions that have not been posted on my blog.
But for good reason!
First off, I relocated. My husband and I really loved our five years in Nashville, but he had the opportunity to move his work and, with it being the summer before our oldest started kindergarten, we thought this would be our chance to try something different. So we've been residents of Bowling Green, Kentucky, for six months now and enjoy it even more than we thought we would! Less people, less traffic, a quiet cul de sac house, an hour closer to my momma - all good things!
And the great news about Bowling Green is that it's less than an hour away from Nashville: we still get the big city perks and I can still photograph those Nashville babies! So no worries, I'm still a Nashville photographer.
The second big news on tap: the above image was selected as a finalist in the VOICE Image Collection by Click Magazine (movement category)! Over 45,000 images were submitted with just over 200 chosen for the collection. Not only is this my first image to be published in a national magazine, but I will also be in Florida next month for the VOICE Collection Gallery Exhibition to see my image alongside so many great works by amazing artists and friends. This is definitely a pinch me moment! And my daughter definitely thinks it is the bee's knees to see herself in print. And now I get to add this little ditty to my website...
I've also been planning a photography retreat with some awesome friends for the second year in a row. More details on that up ahead!
I hope your new year is starting off wonderfully! I'm excited to share more here in the coming months...
