I can't believe how long it's been since I've created a blog post! Where has the time gone? In all honesty, life gets busy, and I get in slumps about anything repetitive in my life. There's also often so much I want to say, but my earlier blog posts have always felt more about a fun way to show off gorgeous photos, as opposed to having a moment to interact with my community. I hope to add more of both back into my blog space. Instagram has been my most-used platform to interact with my followers and clients, but I'm hoping to bring back some insights, anecdotes, and wonderful photos as well. I still share photos to my Facebook page, but I hope to add some depth there as well. I hope you'll join me on this journey!
As many of you know, I am a mom of two creative, spirited boys; also, I'm expecting number three in a few weeks. In preparation, both as a respite for myself and a time of creative rejuvenation, I decided to take a personal staycation--on my own--in the Pearl. I found a gorgeous location and planned time for lots of rest, writing, web design, and a few photos, as it brought me joy. I ended up inviting a few long-time clients to join me for little mini sessions with their littles--a little more stylized than usual--and I loved every minute of it. I loved both spending time with them and playing in a new location.
Through spending time with these lovely clients, I was reminded how much I love what I do and the people I get to work with. It is so lovely to be repeatedly chosen to enter into sacred spaces with families, newlyweds, individuals--all kinds of moments--in order to capture photographs. I am reminded that a photography client is a vulnerable thing, and, when I take a moment to reflect, I often am very humbled by the special entry I get into the lives of my clients. I am often there for big moments, milestones, and intimate experiences. The richness of that experience is not lost on me. I cherish the moments and memories I help capture.
