Moving from one state to another isn’t easy, but I’ve learned that flexibility and an open mind is key. I’ll admit the transition from Alaska to Georgia was more emotional than I thought it would be.Although we missed our life in Alaska and knew Georgia would be very temporary, we saw our time in Georgia as a new place to explore and make warm adventures (instead of cold ones!). We’ve already enjoyed our hikes in Pine Mountain and family runs in Providence Canyon and can’t wait to add more to the list! My husband and I make the most of each place the Army sends us, especially me! My super bubbly and extroverted self loves to dig into the community exploring Columbus’s local flavor.
The Uptown Market Days is a major summer event that brings together local farms and businesses to downtown – now called uptown- Columbus every Saturday morning. Starting April 18th, you’ll find me and my short self at the Market Days! Come visit me and say hello! I’ll have photograph greeting cards and lovely little prints from my travels on display and available for purchase. From Alaska and Hawaii to California and Georgia, you’ll see a variety of landscape photography. Although wedding and portrait photography is my main focus, I enjoy documenting our outdoor adventures outside of work.
When my friend Meghan (of Swallow’s Heart) and I participated in the local Christmas bazaars this past winter in Alaska, we valued meeting our customers and loyal social media followers in person. This summer at the Market Days, I look forward to being under the Georgia sun having conversations with new friends.
