obligatory first post!

Hello, darling readers! I just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself and my blog and what you can expect to see here at Vakre Verden.

Firstly, the name.

Vakre Verden directly translates to Beautiful World in Norwegian, which is a large part of my heritage. I have spent the last couple years teaching myself the language, and it only felt appropriate to include it in what I hope to become a large part of my life!

Secondly, the me!

My name is Lindsay, I live relatively close to Washington, D.C. and I love exploring my part of the world. By day, I'm a professional photographer, although managing my own business is hard stuff, so I freelance assist with an amazing company, and enjoy using my own camera for my weekend adventures and fun with friends. I have also started to take part in photo styling, another aspect of my marvelous job, which has made me grow a deep addiction to dishtowels and plants. Weird, I know. I moved from small-town Canada life two years ago, so don't be too surprised if I post a video and my accent shines brightly. Goodness, I miss my pet moose. -teehee- Other than that, I play a lot of guitar in my spare time and I make a lot of crafts. Don't ask me to bake anything, I will most definitely burn the house down.

At Vakre Verden, I want to take you with me on my daily life, whether that's on a photo shoot, or reviewing a book I think you should read on a rainy day. Mostly, I want you, my readers to help me grow as a photographer, a blogger, and a person. Adulthood is not all peaches and cream, and I want to be honest with you guys, and instead of getting empty "likes" and "follows", I want to put faces to those names and get to know YOU! After all, you wouldn't be here if we didn't have something in common!

Time to go brainstorm some awesome content for you guys. Let me know what you'd like to see!
