Apartment Living

  • Our First Month

So we’ve been living in an apartment for a month now! The only thing I have to compare apartment living to is my freshman year of college and so we’re quite new to this! After only a month of living here, I feel like we’re getting the hang of it! However, there have been a few things that we are unsure about and I’m really hoping we’re not weird. So if you are currently living in an apartment or have lived in an apartment in the past and these things have happened to you or crossed your mind… PLEASE let us know that we’re not the only ones!!!

The first thing you need to know is that I was nervous about this engagement session! I am always a little nervous for each engagement session but this one had even more pressure! Why? Because Austin and Melissa drove from DETROIT to RICHMOND for their engagement session! They acted like it was no big deal but to me… it was a HUGE deal! These images needed to be GORGEOUS! Ah! I always want my engagement sessions to be gorgeous but when you know your couple gave up three days to travel all the way to your town to have their portraits done, they just have to be extra perfect!
