Breathe, Just Breathe……
Breathe, just breathe…..I kept reminding myself of this necessity in life as I powered through the busiest fall season in my 10 year career. I’m fortunate to have a client base that is consistent and new portrait and wedding clients that find their way to my work through referrals. I am grateful to all of you for keeping my business strong in these crazy economic times. I also took on a new project that involved photographing 750 people. The production involved in that and the processing work for my staff was incredible. Couple all this with 2 kids and a husband who are all on the go and of course the holidays, and you can understand why I kept saying, “breathe, just breathe”.
I thought I’d take the first few weeks of the year off to refocus my life and catch up on all the things that were put on the back burner. I ended up having a bunch of newborns and pregnancy shoots that I just didn’t want to push out into the end of the month……and that was a good thing as a few of the pregnancy shoots went into labor shortly after our sessions.
Blogging certainly took the furthest backseat of them all. I just couldn’t justify spending the time to blog when I had client photo deadlines. So over the next few weeks, I’ll try to catch up on some of the most memorable and fun shoots that I did over the past few months. I might not get a lot written, but I’ll try to at least get the photos up so you can see the joy that I was able to experience with the wonderful people I’m so privileged to photograph.
This beautiful little family was a delight to photograph. If you ever question, “when is the right time to photograph a newborn”…remember these photos. They are really tiny for such a short time and capturing the newborn stage in the first few weeks of life is ideal.
