Leaving Virginia- Nashville Photographer

This week is more or less our last week in Virginia. We leave this weekend for vacation with my family for an entire week (freedom!) and will then return to load up all of our packed belongings into a moving truck. I will drive down to Nashville with my daughter and brother while Scott, my husband, stays behind for a week to work. My computer will be packed in boxes for nearly two weeks and during that time I will have limited access to internet (which I will reveal why in a future post). If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I will get back with you as soon as I can.

One thing that I love about the East Coast that I never really had growing up in Washington state are the thunderstorms. I grew up on the dry side of Washington (it does exist!) and of course we had thunderstorms but nothing like what I have experienced here. Here, it pours and the thunder is deafening... the lightning blinding. I realized just a few days ago that I really didn't have any scenic pictures of the area. This same day it stormed and the sky afterwards was just glowing pinks, purples, blues... a photographer's dream. And so I took my camera and drove around the country trying to beat the light. Nothing fancy or spectacular but beautiful nonetheless. I will miss you Virginia! You've been wonderful to us!

By this time I was really racing against the sunlight. You can see that the clouds have mostly lost their pink color.


  1. The colors are beautiful Abbie! To be honest, I'd like to buy both in prints to put in our home...could you email me a price? I'm serious!

    I agree about Virginia, I found one of my dearest friends there, and I miss it more than you know. I hope your move goes smoothly and you get settled without problems.

  2. Love these! Nashville has crazy thunderstorms as well. Great photo ops!

  3. These photographs are simply exquisite. I love them. I feel like ist daughter and would like them in my home too. And let's take Paris by storm sometime - we could do some serious damage to that city.
