I know it may seem that I've abandoned this blog, but I haven't completely. In fact, I really miss writing! I have a lot going on (aside from having a 5 month old baby to care for) so blogging really takes a back seat to the rest of my priorities.
In caring for my wee one, I've been exclusively breastfeeding, so I've often got a baby attached to me most of the day. When I'm not devoting my attention to her, I'm working on my business.
You read right; business. I took my photography to the next level;
This wasn't something that just came on a whim or out of the blue. It's been somewhat in the works for the past year, but it hasn't been until the last two months that I decided to jump all in.
After 5 years of perfecting the craft, I felt that it was time to take it more seriously, and I couldn't be more glad that I did. I'm booking weddings, portrait sessions, and I'm currently blueprinting plans for my soon-to-be studio that will be built once we buy a home this year (hoping that the house search is successful.)
In my spare time I'm still studying photography and somehow managing to keep my home relatively clean and organized. Maybe that's why time feels like it's shooting by?
I'll tell you, nothing is more magical than seeing your dreams manifest in front of your eyes. A couple years ago, being a mother and a photographer were just gleaming dreams in my eyes. Now it's here, it's all happening and to be honest, I'm very proud of it all.
Doesn't that smile of hers just kill you?! She's really been my motivation to pursue everything. The desire has been there all along, but I really didn't find the grit to tackle it until she came into my world. I feel like no matter what happens now, I'll never quit going after my vision.
My heart is full. It's full of the love I have for my family, and the excitement of all the adventures I have coming my way in the next few years.
And to those who ever implied that having children would be the end of your own life and your own dreams; here's what I have to say to you....
It's only just begun.
