I don't know how it is possible for it to be November, and my last blog post was in August. Wait, I guess I do know how. That 50% off special was so popular it left me no time for blogging (or much else, for that matter!).
Now I have quite a bit of catching up to do to share some of the beautiful and fun and funny and touching images I've been making. But first I decided to start with an update.
Last month I found out I was a finalist in Clickin 2017 Voice Collection - a highly competitive photo contest. From over 45 000 entries about 200 were chosen, and mine was included in Joyfulness category! The image is the one above, taken during a Disney Day in Life Session at Epcot this past January. (So when you sign that model release, you never know what might happen!) That was definitely one of the highlights of my photography career. To see all the amazing winners and finalists, click here.
Another highlight was this week as I had a Birth Story Session and documented the birth of Baby R. I will make a separate blog post of that session, so stay tuned! What a miracle birth is...
I feel so fortunate to have my own business, where I can set my own hours. Despite the busy fall photography season we have made time to go to Disney with our own family, and my little girls and I had a fun homeschool field trip to Seaworld last month. First time for us! It happened to be on a cool quiet day, so we really enjoyed our visit.
It is an interesting balance to be a working mom - and a working homeschool mom, at that. There have been days I have felt like a Supermom, only to realize something really important didn't get done. I know my house will need to get a deep cleaning soon (please send any cleaning people's contact info to my husband... ;-).
Despite the busyness this fall really has been so incredible. I have loved meeting new families and capturing special moments with repeat clients. I find it so satisfying to create meaningful images for families for their walls, for photo books and for Christmas cards. Images that will be treasured for years to come. Seasons change so fast - too fast! I am honored I get to help preserve what life is like right now.
Fall 2017 season is wrapping up, but stay tuned - I will release a few available dates for January and February soon.
And of course, if you're a planner or if you'd like a head start on scheduling, contact me asap:)
