Adding an Adventurer
I wanted to share a bit of information about what all is going on in my life right now! First and foremost, I am ENGAGED and will be getting married this December. Johnathan and I met while working as missionaries at a coffeeshop ministry in Hidalgo, Mexico and moved back to North Carolina together, where we're enjoying the bizarrely beautiful experience of commune life at my family's home. Wedding planning is keeping my schedule quite busy and we are managing to put together a delightfully Scottish shindig. We'll be moving to Hickory, NC in the next few months and I will be able to spend a significantly larger amount of time in the studio. I can't wait to start decorating my studio, house, and room at the tattoo shop!
Speaking of the studio, I am thrilled to have been welcomed into the team at Ink Therapy Studios and am currently working there part-time, as I am still working professionally as an illustrator and am figuring out how best to divide my time. I'm LOVING the fine-line illustrative tattoo work that people have let me play with and have been fortunate enough to consistently be booked out at least 3 weeks at a time, which is amazing with the short amount of time that I've been working at the shop. One of our wonderful artists, Beau Bilodeau, is moving out west in a few weeks and I'll be moving into his room, which is bittersweet but very exciting. I'll be sure to post photos as I start decorating the space, so keep an eye on my instagram!
Here are some photos from our engagement shoot with Brii Cher'ri from the Boudoir Studio in Boone, NC. If you live in the High Country area, I highly recommend Brii's work! We came in with the desire to simply be ourselves and she gave us the opportunity for some magically elegant photos, as well as some that were more ridiculous and light-hearted. I feel like she captured our relationship well- lots of smiles, lots of laughs, and lots of Guinness.
