  • We're coming home!

    We're coming home!

    This is my sweet husband and I on his 40th birthday trip to Disney World! 

    In August of 2013, my family made a career change and a move to good ol' Southern California. We were heartbroken to leave the other bay area of Coos but we felt God calling us to go and so we went. We didn't want to live in California forever, but we were up for the adventure! For the last 20 months we have played tourist while living here and done it well. This includes (but is not limited to) over 100 visits to Disneyland, a visit to Legoland, Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, Los Angeles Zoo, Hollywood, California Science Museum, numerous day trips to beaches, Santa Monica Pier, and more. We've also experienced a few too many moves, lots of traffic, a motorcyle accident, lots of traffic, and gosh darn, it's expensive to live down here. Did I mention the traffic?

    At the beginning of 2015 my father-in-law fell ill and we were feeling the weight of living in Southern California, the $4 a gallon a gas and what feels like astronomical rent prices. We had planned on looking for a new location in for my husbands current job this summer, but with what we were facing we decided to start looking now! So we began our hunt! We applied from coast to coast, hoping to end up somewhere in the mid-south and close to my husband's famliy. My oh my, did God have other plans for us! In the middle of applying to places like Florida, Arkansas, Texas - a position became available in North Bend, Oregon and we outright thought "Why Not?". Little did we know that it would be the answer and the desire of our hearts to get to COME HOME!

    So, Coos Bay/North Bend, The 4 Spores are coming home...

                      ...and with that Rachel Diane Photography is back in business!
