Happy New Year!! I’m both excited and nervous to announce a big change coming up: I’ll be closing up shop for a big part of 2016.
Since the day I started this business almost 3 years ago, I’ve been busy. SO busy. I’ve consistently had more inquiries than I could ever take on. I’ve gone from trying to figure it out, to being in awe, to just being incredibly grateful. I LOVE doing this, so I booked to my capacity and beyond (and luckily have a group of very talented local photographers to refer out to).
The thing is, being so busy isn’t always such a great thing, because eventually something’s got to give. In my case, it was the quality time I spent with my own babies, who aren’t babies anymore.
My youngest will be starting kindergarten in Sept, and I’ve decided to take a break this April forward. I hope to be more present with them, more well rested and therefore more patient. I hope to finally have time to make photo albums of my own family… I fell in love with photography as a child while sitting in my mom’s closet flipping through our 3 family albums over and over and over, and want my kids to get a chance to have that experience too. I hope to fit in a few photography courses I’ve been eyeing forever, and who knows, maybe I’ll even start cooking again?! We’ll see, no promises on that one 🙂
I’ll close with the first photo I’ve ever taken of my kids in the studio, just 2 weeks ago. Crazy, right? My babies, who get to come first again:
