Well, the cat is officially out of the bag! As I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter the other day, I have some BIG news to share. WE ARE MOVING TO NEW YORK CITY! It still feels so strange writing those words, but it is indeed true. My husband Pat is graduating from UW’s dental school tomorrow (yay!) and he has been accepted to a residency program in New York to specialize in pediatric dentistry. While it’s a new and exciting adventure for us, this change sparks many mixed emotions. I have always dreamed about living in Manhattan. From the culture and energy to the people and history, the city has been a fascination of mine for years. It’s truly unlike any other American city. However, I am also very sad to leave my wonderful clients, family and friends here in the great Pacific Northwest. It’s been almost a year since I started my business and I’ve met so many great people during that time. But with this move, I am also transitioning out of my full-time job. Admittedly, it has been tough juggling my business, continuing to grow as an artist and hone my craft as well as working full-time. I am extremely excited that I’ll now be able to spend more time on my business and my photography.
My clients have been incredibly supportive of this big transition and for that I am so very grateful. But not to worry, I will be back! Pat’s program is only two years, and while I have learned to never predict what may happen in the future, we are planning on moving back to the PNW following his residency. Because of this, I am going to continue to serve clients in Seattle, Spokane and surrounding areas (although on a more limited basis). I already have sessions lined up for this fall and weddings booked for next summer in Eastern Washington and the Puget Sound region that I’m really looking forward to! So if you are interested in a session, please don’t hesitate to contact me! I will be posting travel dates and other news on my new Facebook page, so please head on over and “like” me!
Logistics for our move are still being finalized, but I will officially be living in NYC by July 4th. In the meantime, I am working on some recent sessions that I will be posting them on the blog soon. THANK YOU in advance for your support during this time of transition!
(Below are a few photos from our walk across the Brooklyn Bridge when we were in NYC last week to find an apartment. I had a very “Carrie Bradshaw” moment where I found myself trying to convince my husband that it was totally acceptable to store part of my shoe collection in the oven…we are used to living in small apartments, but let’s just say that our new place takes the word “small” to whole different level!)
