    This blog is no longer active but it is a great chronicle through my initial first few years as a photographer. The blog started while I was at photography school in Massachusetts, covers my time working in Florida and Georgia, and chronicles our recent 6 month adventure working with orphans in Thailand. Thanks for visiting!

Thoughts on moving & beautiful Savannah

I’m finally settling into my new city; I fall in love with Savannah a little bit more every day that I’m here. Georgia isn’t where I plan on really settling down, so I may have a hard time leaving when it’s time for me to move on! I’m not sure how long I’ll be here, but I hope that I can become acquainted¬†with Savannah and its residents for at least a year… maybe more? Moving around as much as I do definitely adds a challenging element to my photographic career, especially since the work I enjoy most is community based, but I’m able to work around the challenges. I love change and I love experiencing new things, so my nomadic life-style has suited me well in the last five years. However, I’m hoping that the next place that I move (or maybe the place after that) will be where I do that whole really settling down thing.

I love the city and I love my little space in it. Every single window in my Historic District apartment has a wonderful view, as you can see in these first few photos:

Photos from a Valentine’s trip to the Savannah Ogeechee Canal. It’s currently flooded, so I’m looking forward to exploring more in the Spring. It will be a great place to do portraits.

This is my boyfriend Paul at the canal. He is the graphic designer for the Savannah Music Festival (and a huge motivation for my move to Savannah). He recently purchased his first DSLR, and I’ve been having fun giving him some photography tips.

My plan for my time in Savannah is simple… I’m excited about it! While I’m here I will be having fun and:

  1. Working as an assistant for talented local photographers, soaking in as much knowledge and experience as I can.
  1. Continuing to take on a variety of freelance clients, honing my skills and further discovering my own specific creative and career directions.

Madzub The abstract nature of the second photo really appeals to me!

Courtney I am so jealous of the views you have from your apartment! It looks like you are really enjoying Savannah. I can’t wait to come visit you! Now it’s time to get movin’ and start looking for a photographer to assist! :)

Jewel Anderson Yes! I went to a networking event last night; I’m starting to make steps in that direction!
