About

Hello, I’m Paige…

I’m embracing my new season of life as a grandmother to Bowen and Brady. They call me ‘Hippie’ and I love the days I spend with them.  Recently I’ve been transitioning into my dream life of travel and living in my RV. It hasn’t come without a cost though and valuable lessons about human nature. I’ve endured suffering at the hands of another and am a testament of God’s mighty works. These times of trial inch me ever so closer to the person God created me to be and I give thanks and all praises for His providence.

I’m inspired by all things natural and free. Simple things like my grandma’s handmade quilts and walks in the woods are my keys to peace and happiness. I have this hippie nature and haven’t discovered exactly where in my family line I may have inherited this although born into the sixties, I likely found much influence frequently running behind my teenage siblings.  I’m inspired by my Indian heritage in many ways  thus the long braids which continue to grow at a phenomenal rate just like that of my late grandmother who wore her hair in braids well into her nineties. She was very much a quiet spirit spending her days gardening and sitting on her porch with bible in hand. I think of her most often and allow those memories to influence my way of living. I love the woods and forests. I love hiking, traveling, camping and music festivals. I like loose people with good vibes. And most of all, I love the Lord, who has gifted me with an abundance of creativity.

I’m amazed at creation and enjoy shooting in natural locations where I often ask my clients to dance and whisper, maybe a little toe rubbing and to just love on one another . To just be, to engage one another and to cast aside the thought of a so called session.  Instead we find ourselves enjoying a delightful snippet of life together. And from those moments comes authenticity. My sessions are often an adventure for many and at the end of the day we leave one another spent physically and with newfound friendship. These type days always make me feel life a little deeper and give me a fresh sense of God’s purpose in my life.

It’s my joy and honor to capture that with you and yours.

Paige

 The big guy lost his first tooth. The little guy calls me ‘Bippie’ over and over. The house turns wild when I show up for a visit. Like seriously it took a whole crazy scenario to get a picture lol. All of it , the purest love I know. I’m fueling up for a very busy busy weekend of sessions and having my heart full is an important ingredient for me as I spend time with so many new friends and clients. These two keep me ever reminded of the power of love and connection at a time when otherwise I might rarely see folks here in the woods  #diaryofabippie   And big love to my assistant, @crickypate !! Ridin, drivin, and keepin Miss Daisy on course , that’s her job  #bonsailife #thriftinghippie #sheacceptstips ✌
 Hey, hey Class of 2019! I’m getting a rush of messages for appointments. I am completely booked Aug and September and currently filling in October! Does anyone know when fall break is? That may open some extra time frames if I knew  Also, if you have friends who’ve been procrastinating, tell em to get in touch quickly! Thanks so much! Love you Seniors   It’s so soul fulfilling to hang out on the beach and laugh and giggle with these couples. My heart is invested in these people. Four years ago, I met them in the Flint River for their engagement . Two years ago, I walked on St Simons Island with them when they married. A year ago, I visited Navarre, built a teepee, and photographed their doggie! And now, I’m excited to meet Baby Rylan come October! I love @courtjmckean so much! And Drew with his funny self just makes me sit here and smile, thinking about these blessed moments of their lives ... and mine!
 And the earth under your feet, the rain over your face upturned, the stars spinning all around you in the brazen glory: this is for you, you, you. These are for you─gifts─these are for you─grace─these are for you─God, so count the ways He loves, a thousand, more, never stop, that when you wake in the morning you can’t help turn humbly to the east, unfold your hand to the heavens, and though you tremble and though you wonder, though the world is ugly, it is beautiful, and you can slow and you can trust and you can receive each moment as grace. Ann Voskamp . I woke up humbly facing the east with a prepared list of today’s goals and a determination to accomplish. Then I stepped into the water... two inches deep and still running over the toilet top. Grace quickly resembled panic and a few cuss words. I run outside to release the tank and find way more of the water flooding beneath the camper . Ahhh, now that was grace. All the cracks and crannies of this camper ... grace. Cleanup inside limited to clean water.... Grace. Ability to act quickly and on my own... grace. Forgiveness for those cuss words... grace. . So much grace and the day has just begun! Yes, if we’re attentive, we find grace sufficient all day long  #diaryofahippie ©️  Then we packed up Herbie  and went down the road a ways and enjoyed the evening with these two PhD students. They are having a North Ga wedding in May. I was tickled to spend time celebrating their engagement so now @bloopxsky33 might have a feel for my spirit animal  I first met Cathy last year in St Simons at a wedding and have been so interested in her knowledge and instinct into spirit animals which she interprets as she comes to know you  oh, and that’s Forrest there, of course, I love him
 I freed this wind chime from a box in a souvenir shoppe because I’m the person who buys ridiculously priced souvenirs at roadside stands. But as it softly chimes and twinkles in the sunset Im finding a certain joy in remembering the trip. Perhaps souvenirs are priced accordingly because of this extended pleasure they give. I also bought a bonsai tree. It was a bucket list item .. to actually buy a bonsai instead of just talking about it  #diaryofahippie ©️  Umm, I need to let my seniors know I’m having technical difficulties uploading to Dropbox. Working on it
 And there’s Happy Buddha enjoying his new space . I do believe that’s the best Goodwill rescue ever... even surpassing the Bose’ cd/radio for 8 bucks ! Kudos to @crickypate   Ok, friends, you wanna know who loves you, have an out of town sunrise wedding  Goodness, I woke straight up and grabbed my phone. It was 3 am. Sigh. I dreamt it was 5:58 and I was late Afterwards, we enjoyed a private European breakfast ! I loved how they chose simplicity yet it was made beautiful by the early morning of it. I have to mention that last lady with the long blonde braid. That’s mama to 9 of those adult children there ! Thanks a bunch for having me share your sunrise, @sweatrx and @adcockshaun ! Congratulations, friends
