My ‘Freedom Tour’ . . . all about receiving!

My ‘Freedom Tour’ . . . all about receiving!

I realized today that it was ok to celebrate me and that it was time to receive all that was given yesterday. From wanting to cancel the party earlier in the week to making it happen in less than 48 hours and knowing that I had a connection of some sort with each person who was there to celebrate with me, was such a magical experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything!

New Studio Vibes.

New Studio Vibes.

Got keys. Making new dreams happen. Terri-cited AF.

YA’ALL!!! I’M IN!! The new studio is ON and I’ve already done a session there and two more coming up this week! Here is a little sneak peek into the new space and some behind-the-scenes fun and craziness from the weekend we moved …with a few rain drenched selfies cause, of course, storms and tornadoes were in the forecast on the day of the move! Totally my life, so I just went with it!

I will tell you what though, this growth is bringing on some super emotional moments and days ... from working out of a tiny bedroom studio to a space gifted to me by an awesome rescue to the Goat Farm where I’ve had the most amazing memories and now to a gorgeous loft with a kitchen, bathroom and our own Reveal room, the memories have been flooding in!

Ya' ready? Here I go again...

Ya' ready? Here I go again...

What a busy week it has been! I just had my very last photo shoot at my Goat Farm studio and it was bittersweet. I’m going to miss this place! We’ve had some seriously magical and transformative moments throughout the years here. Six years this October I took the risk to get that studio — cleaned it up, had an open house, and got a few renters so I could sustain if needed and I did it!

And so here I go again — in more than one way! I have recently gotten a new studio (next week I’ll take ya’all through some behind the scenes moments with the move … a little scary with new changes but FUN!) because the Goat Farm is going to go under redevelopment and we can’t be there after the fall AND I am making regular trips to Asheville as you guys have noticed!

I know, I know, I might as well just move to Asheville already! And MANY of you actually texted and called me to tell me that last time I got back in March! Evidently, I always say, and have been saying for the past 5 or 6 years now every time I return, “I so want to live in Asheville — maybe one day I will.”

This is why I come from New York . . . to work with you!

This is why I come from New York . . . to work with you!

The next thing I hear is Karmen running towards me and yelling “OH MY GAWDDDD!!!! THIS is why I come from New York to work with you!!! YOU are the ONLY one who can get me out of my skin, dancing, being silly and allow me to SHOW UP as I am!! I wouldn’t do this for anyone else … just for YOU Rupa!!”

Big Magic Outside the Studio

Big Magic Outside the Studio

So much fun. So much joy. But Let’s get to the heart of it shall we? The deeper, personal side of this story … it allowed me to see from the “outside in” and there were big epiphanies.
