This little girl truly is my life and the reason I do what I do. Today I took Lillian’s Christmas photos and even though I wanted to pull out every strand of hair on my head while she was running around my studio lighting, I know that every click of my camera is for her. As you may or may not know, my main job in life is being a mommy. As a stay at home mom, she is my priority. We laugh a lot, tickle each other, make messes that mommy may or may not clean up (hey at least I admitted it!) and give lots and lots of eskimo kisses (which we call nosey, nosey.) Because of her, I schedule my sessions around her schedule, because her schedule is my schedule! Before daylight savings time, I could do sessions in the evening after my husband came home from work. But now with the time change and the sleepy winter, I can only schedule sessions during the weekends. But I guess after the busy year I’ve had, a nice break during the week is well deserved! 2010 is already looking like a busy one with weddings already booked and numbers swirling around in my head about how many more I should do. Balance is the key for me. I need to balance my professional life and my family life. Family comes first, always has and always will. Balance is also key to my business as I don’t want to be one of those photographers to book every wedding that may fall in my lap. I need to keep my photography fresh, I need to learn new things and I need to rememeber that at the end of the day, the balance that I keep between these two forces in my life is what will keep me sain. Balance, Balance, Balance. Anyways, as I design our Christmas cards for this year, I hope that you find balance in your life…..whether it’s enjoying your family, figuring out all of the details for your upcoming wedding, etc, etc, etc…..enjoy life!!!
