This is what 2019 is looking like. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t squealing a little bit right now! Because THIS is really, really what I love. And I am determined in 2019 to do more of what I love. And less of what I don’t. More connection. More feeling. More mamas just being mamas. More babies just being babies.
2018 felt so rushed. I honestly was shooting too much – and that was even after making a conscious effort to slow down a bit! But I was still shooting too much and felt lost in the race against the clock to just get everything done. And it’s funny…you’d think the more I shot, the better I’d be at it, but it is the exact opposite for me. Too many shoots = too little time in between to catch my breath and actually have time to get creative, assess where I’m at and what I need to do differently. There’s no time to take breaks to really SEE what you’re doing when you’re constantly rushing from one thing to the next to the next. There’s only time to keep churning stuff out but after awhile…it’s kind of impossible to not end up feeling like a robot. Just churning it out. And honestly, it’s kind of an empty feeling. I don’t like that feeling….so I’ve spent the first part of this year figuring out how to kick it to the curb and refocus on what I truly love.
This year I’m saying no to the things that add to my schedule (and even my bank account) but don’t necessarily add any meaning to my life…or to yours. I’m saying no to superficial and artificial and I’m saying yes to authenticity and significance. I’m shifting focus during sessions….slowing it down a bit and making sure you walk away with images that don’t just show your beautiful faces but show feeling, connection, love, gratitude, joy – all of the things you feel when you hold that squishy baby in your arms, when you welcome a new member to your family, when you get to see your child celebrate another birthday, when you pause at home on a Saturday morning, look around, and realize how truly good you’ve got it. I want to capture that. Whether at my studio or at your home or out somewhere that you love. I am SO excited about 2019 and how it’s looking. I’m excited for me and I’m excited for YOU.
So what is it that you want to capture this year? Email me and let’s plan a session that you will love forever. And ever and ever.
