This post is a bit different than my usual, but just as exciting and important! Stephen & I took a road trip to Baltimore yesterday in hopes of finding a place to live that is close to his work and has a spare room for an office & guests!

I am SO thrilled to say that we have officially found a place to live in Baltimore! We are so excited to be living in Fells Point near his firm - He'll be biking to work & I'll be getting Hannah Leigh Photography off the ground from our home!  Here are a few iPhone shots of the place!

We are so thankful for the prayers and wisdom we've received from family and friends as we prepare to make a big transition - Thank you!

The best advice about equipment I ever received,

"Work with what you have, more is not always the answer"

I am a firm believer that the Lord will always give me what I need to do what He wants me to do.  But after having my camera malfunction as I'm outside the delivery room waiting to do a birth photography session this past winter, I knew I needed backup equipment if I was going to get serious about starting a business.

Ordering equipment has been intimidating and pretty intense!  I only wanted to get what I truly needed right now and definitely didn't want to get myself in too deep with equipment I would end up not liking - but this week I finally was able to invest in a few things to get this party started!  Bring on the weddings, engagements & families sessions!

So excited to see what the Lord has in store!

P.S. -

If you know of any wonderful churches, places to adventure, coffee shops or just have connections in Fells Point/Baltimore I would LOVE to chat with you! We are on the hunt for a church right now and know how important it is to have a community of believers for when we move in 5 weeks ((eeek!))

Brooke & Jerod were so easy to photograph!

I'm sure being good friends with them had something to do with it (;

One of my favorite things about photographing a couple is really seeing their personality shine through - Brooke didn't stop giggling and smiling the entire evening, except maybe for one photo!  Jerod was confident and patient as we moved through different poses and I ask him to "stretch" out of his comfort zone (quite literally).

I am so thankful for these two!  This was such a sweet way to start out the year -- I am beyond excited to start photographing engagements, weddings & more this summer!
