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

 Exploring new spaces and places and digging the curved glass so very much. Plus happy happy when we can buy time inside and allow the harsh sun to descend a bit   All that’s not to say that I don’t gather blankets and bring some nature in and photograph cute behinds but seeing the pleasure on mom and dads faces is my favorite
 One ☝ more post and I’m out the door to a new to me location ! Totally loved @hannah_schroeder25 ! So much so, I’ll be seeing her a second time to complete our adventure ✌ Everything is as it should be! But today, I get to hang out with another favorite senior of mine!!! (Swipe left - love that ending)  I’m the youngest sibling of three. The year I was born my parents both quit their jobs and launched a family owned business putting their former skills to work for themselves. Success came steadily over the first few years launching our economic status to a place of less struggle than my siblings had known. Pouring their selves into the requirements of a business and acquiring new wealth meant the need for and the ability to have a full time caregiver for us children. Her name was Minnie. From birth I was placed in her arms. She dedicated her long days to my care for the next twelve years while my parents worked to provide. It was a working plan and all I ever knew. It wasn’t until the passing of both parents that I realized in digging through old photographs that save one, there were no photos of myself in my mother’s arms. Yes, there were studio portraits of me through the stages propped on fuzzy blankets with silver rattler in hand. But none of those satisfied connection after losing my mom. Right then, I decided that was my hope for my photography.
 Be still my heart ❤️ Kudos to moms who knock on doors when you spot zinnia patches by the roadside and the sun sets right there  On a day my Peace could have been rattled, God delivered up even more than I imagined   I heard a radio talk show recently that said 75% of the world’s population live in the earthly realm. I think living in the Bible Belt we forget this. Life has made it most clear to me though . I’m exceedingly drawn to the sweet light that I see in sisters of the spiritual realm. I thank God for sending refreshing reminders !
 Sometimes you gotta roll with the changes for various reasons and when you do you find better things await you. I became super confident of that when Hannah’s mom spotted this one little heart weed out of a big grassy field. Do you believe in signs ?  I do!  She arrived with her camera, her bible, and her tapestry. And no doubt, she’s my little soul sister
 Every now and again it’s kinda refreshing to come out of the woods and visit town. But only every now and again when beautiful friends make it a more beautiful experience and whimsical trees fill in for the real thing! (Swipe left)  Such a sweet pleasure to share my neck of the woods with @abbygiles_ yesterday evening. Her enthusiasm and spirit for nature made our time feel like hanging out with a good good friend. She really made me realize as she swam around in the river just how blessed I am to share these days with you seniors!
