Back Into the Blogging World
I'm not sure if life will be normal again for a while, but I'm back in the office and playing catch up. I am still struggling to deal with the loss of my father and the responsibility of handling his estate is on my shoulders. As much as I'd like to curl up and pretend this is not happening, I know for a fact my father, who was one of my biggest supporters, would want me to continue to put my heart and soul into the business I love.
I am going to try to get back to my regular blogging schedule and sharing on Facebook again. I have a lot of portraits to share from recent weddings and sessions. I've been fortunate to be a part of so many amazing milestones in my clients' lives. I know I've said it many times before, but I truly have the best job and, more importantly, the best clients in the world.
In addition to keeping you all up to date on what I've been up to photographically, I'm working on updating our website, client information material, and about a hundred other things. What can I say, it's winter again. Every winter I feel the itch to design, to freshen things up for the new year. Typically winter is a slow time of year for me, with wedding season usually winding down in October and family portraits slowing down at the end of November. This winter has been far from that and I'm loving every minute of it. Despite everything that has been happening in my family and the grief I feel in my heart, I still love what I do and feel so blessed to be doing it.
I think going Imaging, while falling at a difficult time, was a great thing for me. I struggled with the decision to follow through with the plans I'd made months before. Was now really the best time to head to Atlanta for five days after all that had happened? I am so glad I did. It reminded me of just how fortunate I am to be doing something that I love so deeply and creating something precious for my clients.
Someday, I will find normal again for myself. Until then, I fully intend to continue to put my heart and soul into my photography.
