Softly the evening came with the sunset.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There are times when I absolutely love my job and this is one of them. To capture quiet moments of childhood, running in the setting sun, jumping for joy, laughing and enjoying a snack, this is what I love to do and I am so blessed to be able to do it.
Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For then the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.
~ Matthew Arnold
This image will be 25% off in my shop all week♥
I am so excited to start introducing some new ideas I have been working on for my shops. Today I will be sharing something fun for my fine art photography shop. Each Monday I will be showcasing one image from the shop as the Image Of The week. During that week the photo will be 25% off in the shop in whatever size you want.
I chose this week’s image while sitting next to the window looking out at the grey clouds and rain. I needed a little color and sunshine and think this image is the perfect pick me up on this dreary day.

Anna Quindlen, How Reading Changed My Life
In the ebb and flow of life I find myself constantly inspired by a myriad of different things. I have realized a dream of design with Little Lotti, I have let my heart and a life long love lead me into photography and I am constantly amazed at how these thing have filled my creative needs. I started on my professional photography path with newborns and children and absolutely love what I do. That being said, I have been feeling a deep longing to spread my creative wings and lend my vision to senior and commercial photography as well. To accommodate my new direction I am making some changes.
My love of vintage, leaving a legacy and spending time cuddling newborns, laughing with children and getting to know families will stay as it is with Nest Vintage. I am so lucky to be able to photograph children and families at every stage and intend to continue to do that for as long as someone wants me to♥
To give myself the creative legroom that I long for and the chance to photograph senior girls and fashion(commercial) I will be introducing a brand new website next month! Brandie Pahl Photography will provide modern, fashion forward, romantic, fun photography with my vintage stamp to senior girls, engaged couples and commercial clients. On my new site you will also find my fine art photography that I currently sell on Etsy. I am so excited for this new venture and hope that you will all love it!! Life is after all, always changing♥
