The Parsons Lodge at The Lake A Lifestyle Session

I had such a great time photographing the cutest little cabin on the lake. Rachel and Chris had me over at their lodge also known as The Parsons Lodge. Originally Rachel and I had planned to do headshots for her new photography business but that soon turned into a lifestyle session with her hubby.

It brings me such joy seeing people go for their dreams and taking action to get it started. This is exactly what Rachel is doing and I’m just so happy for her. So this set of photos not only marks a personal journey for her, but a milestone in career change of being her own boss and venturing out as an entrepreneur #bosslady

Speaking from experience, being your own boss and starting up a business requires a lot of support. Not just from the community but from family. It was definitely a blast getting to hang out with Rachel and her hubby Chris–a huge supporter for this sweet lady here.

The super cool part about this session was how Rachel highlighted the getting ready process on her Instagram stories. Making use of social media! Rachel is already getting super creative with being her own boss. You should definitely check out her new website here and follow her on Instagram!

I had Vu tag along (and it’s been a while since he’s assisted me) and after the session, the four of us hung out on their porch (under the twinkling lights) and shared what our weekend plans were for the summer. I love ending a session this way. And I love hearing the plans and dreams of couples. It warms my heart hearing what inspires them as a couple and individually. Of course while sipping our beers we had to visit the horses from the neighbor’s yard. A great way to end the evening indeed. So excited for Rachel and her new adventure!
