Time for Change
This summer I decided to take a break away from my little photography business to just be a mom. I did not want to miss out on summer vacation with my precious girls. As much as I love photography and I feel blessed by how my business has taken off I value my time with my family more.
I am in the process of making a decision about what direction I want to go in this fall. My top priority is to be there for my family. I do not want to miss out on anything and I do not want to feel guilty when I am at soccer games, ballet, working in their classrooms etc. I am trying to find a balance between being a mom and a wife and my photography business. My biggest decision right now is to either keep my photography as just a hobby or to take only a very limited number of sessions each month. This is a difficult decision for me but yet a very simple one at the same time. Either way I will be scaling back. I just cannot give the attention to my family that I want to when I have photo sessions that need to be edited and people waiting on me. I love each and every one on my clients and I feel blessed that I have had the amazing opportunity to work with them and fulfill my dreams. My love for photography will never die and I will never fully retire from it. However, my my girls childhood will not pause but my work schedule can. Time is something that you cannot get back and it goes by faster than what I am comfortable with. I only have a limited amount of time to enjoy my girls childhood and I do not want to miss out on one second of that. I want to make lunches, fold their little socks, bake cookies, drive on field trips, ride bikes, work on crafts, snuggle, play, make forts and just enjoy watching them grow with my full attention. I am praying for God’s guidance in this decision and I already know that my most important job and responsibility in this world is being a mommy to my girls.
