I had the pleasure, once again, of photographing a newborn session for this sweet family. Big sister (who, I swear, was just a newborn yesterday) loves her new baby brother. And I mean, look at him…what’s not to love?
As you can see from the previous date of the post on my blog, it’s been a bit since I last shared some sessions with you, and there are plenty of sessions to share. Summer hit and with summer comes the crazy no-schedule-schedule when, as a parent, you’re running your offspring here and there at all hours of the day and trying to keep up with it all. I’m one of those people that dreads the routines of the school year but then dreads the lack of routines in the summer. There’s no winning.
Before we get on with the photos though, I just want to take a minute to say a few things. Over the past 13 years in this joyous and wonderful photography career of mine, I’ve never really shared a lot of super personal information about myself. I know a lot of photographers do and I think what and how much you choose to share is a personal choice, but for me, I prefer to be like the backstage manager – working hard behind the scenes and keeping my work center stage while I stand behind the curtain and wave my arms dramatically but quietly.
Life happens, y’all. A lot of life has been happening for me in the past year and the chapters of my life are changing. As we move into the fall, I want to officially announce that I’ll be scaling back my photography business. Currently I’m only scheduling weekend sessions and I’m doing so selectively. If you have scheduled with me already, your spot is safe. If you have a gift card or you’ve booked me for a newborn session, I’m still there for you. If you haven’t reached out to me for fall or you have but haven’t picked a date, unfortunately I can’t guarantee you a spot. I will do what I can to find you one but I can’t make any promises.
I am truly grateful for my life’s chapters and pages and I’m especially grateful if you’ve dog-eared those pages with your beautiful selves once or maybe even several times. You’ve made the past 13 years of my life special and even if you do not appear behind my camera lens again, I hope we can continue sharing the chapters of our lives with each other in other ways.
“Life is like a book. Some chapters are sad, some are happy and some are exciting. But if you never turn the page, you will never know what the next chapter has in store for you.”
I had the recent opportunity to photograph this sweet young lady’s senior photos after she won a session with me at a charity auction. As a rising senior, she used her free session on her senior photos and got them done early – ALWAYS a good idea! She was lovely to work with and I hope she has the best senior year ever!
