Oh man, sometimes making decisions is hard!! This has been on my mind for a long time, trying to decide where I want my business, my life, my relationships to go.
After many, many months of deliberation, narrowing down what I love the most, and trying to picture our life as a family, I’ve decided to:
Focus primarily on family portrait shoots!
Although I love weddings, and have been so lucky to have worked with some of the most amazing amazing couples, I will no longer be booking weddings. My goal is to expand my business into a family portrait only, and I’ve been working hard to get the ball rolling in that direction for a while now. I have a vision, and if you know me, there really isn’t much that can stand in my way when I get an idea in my head. I’m a bit stubborn that way.
I’m going to be a mom.. holy crap.. an actual mom..
With a new baby on the horizon (can I just note, the cutest baby in the world is due feb.6 2012) I can’t imagine driving back and forth from Portland to B.C as much as I did this summer. I spent 168 hours in the car, back and forth from Portland to B.C this year so far.
After a short yet ridiculously awful flu last January (that almost made me miss one of my weddings) I got a little scared. The fear of letting someone down on their wedding day is absolutely horrid. I couldn’t live with myself knowing that I had let someone down on one of the most important days of their life. What would happen if I got sick, if our baby got sick, if my gear got stolen.. All of those things have been running through my mind ever since I started shooting weddings.
I think I can thank my mom for my “worry wartness”
I like kids.. We can relate to each other..
Short attention spans// Constant need to be fed//Constant need to be entertained//Frequent naps
you get the idea
Alright, so here’s the catch..
If you feel like your wedding is going to be the best party of the century//the most fun one photographer could ever have//the most laid back wedding known to man kind//
you can call me….
I’ve been known to take bribes.. Chocolate, Massages, Expensive pieces of art ;).. you know, the good stuff
I want to thank everyone in advance for understanding!!
And because every post is better with a photo, here is one of my growing belly!
