It's no secret I have a lot on my plate, I always worked better under pressure for some reason, I used to work in an Operating Room at a hospital and I would hand over supplies "stat" and I thrived during those times, the downtime is where I struggled. So it's no surprise that I find a balance for work-life, home-life and photography-life. I know I am a broken record when I say, you find time in your life for things you love, but it's true. If you love something you'll find time whether it's a person, a hobby, a sport, work, party, etc. We're all busy in life but we find time. This year has been probably my biggest year yet, but I never felt out of control (minus October,damn you) I found a good balance but I had to subtract something I like to do to continue something I love to do. I cut out family & senior sessions to shoot weddings. You can imagine it's not an easy week to work all day and then rush to a family session, shoot it and get home by 6-7pm to spend very little time with your children before bed. It just didn't fit anymore. Traveling miles one way to a 30 min session just stopped making sense to me. (When available I do still travel for engagement sessions when you book a wedding with me) I have had a lot of interest in sessions and it really pains me to let past clients down or see them go elsewhere. My response to them is "I do limited sessions, at my home and as available". No more travel and no more scrambling my family around. Once a year I do hope to add mini-sessions to the schedule, like I did this weekend. I have a full schedule Saturday & Sunday!
Thank you all for your support, for following my work, for your "likes" and commenting and feedback (I can't express enough how much I love feedback) thanks for sharing my page with others and recommending me and most of all for understanding that I can't do it all , as much as I would love to be superwoman ;)
I took the day off the other day to take a deep breath, do nothing and shoot my very favorite subject at the apple orchard, scored some yummy honey crisp and pumpkins. These two are the reason for the reduction in sessions. As you can see these two are my whole life, the cutest boys on earth and I love them more than my next breath.
