Photo Challenge: Free | Northern Virginia Photographer

Photo Challenge PROMO

Sometimes life gets in the way and that’s been true for the last month – finals, graduation, family visits, holidays, new job opportunities, conferences, moving, and more. With the stresses that came with December, we fell behind with our photo challenge. Indeed, it has been a challenge. This is a new adventure for us both and we didn’t realize just how difficult it might be to keep up. We are back on track now and apologize for the delay.

Chasing Now‘s Shot


About Nikki’s photo: In the midst of the recent craziness, I was able to go to an amazing Christian conference for college students in Atlanta, Georgia called Passion. Though this is just an iPhone photo, it was such a powerful moment that made me think of Free — not only do we wonderfully live in a free country, but we are truly made free by Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection.

About Alli’s photo:

When we first got our dog Spock, he was a nervous mess. He was a rescue, and did not have much trust in people. For about half a year he would tuck his tail between his legs, and would hide. Now a year later, he is confident, happy, and free!

2015 Update | Northern Virginia Photographer

I have been MIA for a while and I apologize for that. A lot has been going on and it has all lead to some news for Chasing Now.

I have accepted a six-month internship with Group Mission Trips – an amazing opportunity and something I never dreamed would be possible. The bittersweetness of this is that I am temporarily relocating to Colorado. Chasing Now will not be able to take photo sessions in Virginia during this time.

I am very excited about this new adventure. It will be a wonderful way to explore my passion for ministry while serving to create mission trip opportunities for teens across the country. The news of this job came just as I was graduating from college (a very long adventure in itself), moving back home, and preparing for the holidays and family visits, so it’s been a little crazy trying to get all the loose ends tied in Virginia while preparing for my arrival in Colorado.

My photography is still very much a part of my life. Alli and I will continue to work on our photo challenge – I’ll just be a little farther away. Chasing Now will be back in Virginia, ready for action in August 2015, so don’t hesitate to book a session for later in 2015.

Chasing Now is currently booking photo sessions in the Fort Collins area of Colorado through August and in Northern Virginia starting September.
