Interview With Rachelle Marie


Well, my friends, I have returned! I apologize for the rather long, unintentional blogging break. School has been keeping me on my tip-toes for awhile, but I promise that more posts will be coming this way.

Anyhow, I recently had the opportunity to interview the remarkable and talented Rachelle Marie from Beloved Bluebird. She is amazing at what she does and is one of the most talented and accomplished bloggers I know. Special thanks to Rachelle for allowing this to happen.
Q. "Hello Rachelle! I'm so glad you were able to join us today! Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself; your personality, your hobbies, and anything else you'd like to share."

A. Hello Aliah and readers! My name is Rachelle and I live in western Washington state with my parents and two brothers (one older and one younger). I am fifteen years old and spend my days painting, reading, writing, making music, taking photos, filming videos, and acting in musicals. Another favorite pastime of mine is adventuring. I live amongst lakes and forests and between two mountain ranges which separate me from the sea on one side and the desert on the other. I love people a lot and enjoy having deep conversations and making new friends! If you would like to know more about me, I blog over at Beloved Bluebird and sell greeting cards in my shop, The Little Birch.

Q. "I would like to start off with the usual questions: what inspired your blog and when did you decide you wanted to create your own blog?"

A. "I started my blog back in June 2012 after running a little magazine-style website for a few months. I decided that I wanted a more personal website where I could connect with other people and have creative freedom. At the time, I wasn't very familiar with blogs, but there were a few that I was following along with. I decided to give it a try, and thus, my blog was created!"

Q. "You mentioned that you enjoy both painting and photography. If you couldn’t do both and had to give up either painting or photography for the rest of your life, which one would you pick and why?"

A. "Oh dear! I hope that is a choice that I never have to make. ;) However, under the very unfortunate circumstances that I would have to, I would most likely choose to give up painting. Although it is something that I love to do very often and is very important to me, photography is a vital passion that I don't think I could live without. In the future, it would be much more convenient to take photos of my children and my life rather than to paint them."

Q. "If you ever got a chance in the future, would you ever move from where you live? Or would you simply stay at home and travel to other places instead? Why?"

A. "I do hope to study abroad somewhere in Europe for a year or two, but after college I think I'd like to stay home and just travel. While I do love visiting other places, it is always so good to have a familiar home to return to after my adventures are over."

Q. "What do you enjoy most about photography, and what inspired you to start taking photographs?"

A. "Photography is enjoyable for me for a myriad of reasons, but I suppose the best aspect of it is the ability to capture a single moment and make it infinite in itself. It is so special to return to those moments in the future and to have the ability to capture them for other people! I think I was inspired to start taking photos around 4th grade. My parents had a little photography business and I always loved seeing their shoots - I really wanted to learn to take photos like theirs. I took an old digital camera on our trip to California and snapped loads of photos and I haven't stopped since!"

Thank you so much for doing this Rachelle, it means a lot. :)

    1. Thank you Jordy! It's simply gorgeous isn't it?

  2. Rachelle's blog was one of the first I found when I started Peridot Cove back in June. x So many bloggers referred me to her for design tips and helpful posts. ;) She is such a sweetheart (and so are you!)!
