hey sandfoot, WHERE are you NOW?

i understand that it's kinda ridiculous for me to create a post without images. i'm a photographer. photographs are what i do. i know, i know. the photos are backed up and waiting in line to hit the blog and i can promise that i've got some great stories and beautiful faces to show in the next couple of days. hang with me - first thing's first!

i've already dubbed 2009 as "the year of change." (hopefully not the kind that jingles in your pocket, but the kind that brings excitement, challenges, growth, and new opportunities for us all.) i just made my first change of the year last week, and i thought it deserved some quick recognition of it's own before i dove back into the good stuff.

on february 1, i moved to roxboro. for those of you who know me well, you might be thinking, "what's the big deal about that? you've moved once a year since 2002. what's the difference?" but you see, this time there IS a difference. for the last 6 years i've moved from home to college, from dorm room to apartment, from apartment to house, from house to apartment, from apartment to apartment, and so on. everytime i moved, i moved with the knowledge that i'd be moving again soon...probably to another corner of the triangle. hey, i'm young and flexible, why not try it all, right?

i've loved parts of chapel hill, raleigh, cary, and durham, and had i not found such a fun and handsome best friend to marry me and drag me out of there, i probably could have continued to be content in whatever corner of the triangle world would have come next. but then, i didn't say 2009 was the year of content...i said it was the year of change.

i've been in roxboro one week now and i could not be happier with the thought of living here for the rest of my life. i didn't realize how much i'd missed home cookin', sunday afternoons, completely southern accents, and being part of a tight community until i found it again here. so thanks roxboro, for welcoming me into your family. my camera and i are here to stay!

and finally, to answer the number 1 question of all of my triangle friends and clients - it changes nothing. sandfoot photography will still operate in your area - you're not getting rid of my face (or my camera) anytime soon. ;)

xoxo all around,

I'm just glad the moving is over! My back hurts! I'm so proud of you, and so happy you've found the place that fits. Thank you to all the Roxboro folks who have taken you into their homes and hearts. I can still break my promise, and move you one more time, if it gets you back here to the OBX. It's not too late!

Love Daddy

It's good to know that you will still be in the triangle. I don't know what I would do without you and Sandfoot. :)

Hi Allison! We've not met yet but I'm Joyce's first cousin (Jo Ellen)! Welcome to the family! I just saw the photos of Kelly and Stacy! How absolutely lovely! I can tell from reading your blogs that Alan has really made a wonderful choice for a wife! I'm looking forward to meeting you and using you for some photography in the future! Hope you enjoy Roxboro!
