Maine Family Adventure: Moving to Maine

Welcome to my new blog!! I’m Tiffany (lifestyle portrait photographer) and my family and I just recently moved from Charleston, South Carolina to York, Maine for the next 10 and a half months. I’m new to the whole blogging world and to be honest I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing (which is VERY scary), but I love capturing images that tells a story…and what better story to tell then my OWN! My hope is by documenting and sharing our own adventures, we’ll inspire other families to take the leap and follow a dream of theirs.

So why move your family over 1000 miles from beautiful Charleston to Southern Maine for just 10 months, you might ask? Well, It’s always been a dream of mine to once again live back home in Maine. I grew up in the small town of Eliot, ME and attended college at University of New Hampshire (GO BLUE!), which was just a couple towns away from my home town. I came to Charleston in 2006 after returning home from the Peace Corps (more on that later!), excited to live in a new place for a couple of years. And 12 years later…here I still am!!

Every fall in Charleston, when I’m dripping in sweat while at the local pumpkin patch or sitting in the stadium at a college football game, my heart aches for the cooler, crisp sweater-wearing weather of home. Maine was the most magical place to grow-up and a place I want my boys to love as well. So this past fall, after another season of Maine calling (really SCREAMING) my name, I thought…why not try to move back to New England for a year. And that’s where this crazy idea became…MIZZELLS MOVE TO MAINE!!

These are my two boys…my world.

I hope you’ll take this ride with us, as I give you a glimpse of all our adventures here, as well as how we made this all possible.
