So as I sit here to share my big news, I am excited, really excited. But I am also extremely nervous. Not about sharing my big exciting news, but because life is changing BIG TIME for our sweet little family! And what big changes are not scary? But that’s what life is about, like REALLY LIVING. It’s about taking chances and reaching for your dreams. Well, I have been reaching for quite some time now, but now its time to grab…grab and hold on tight – because we are about to take one wild and exciting ride.
Over the past few years I have been working hard to build this business. A little “husband and wife photography team”…now turned “family business” with the addition of our sweet little boy. What did this business mean for us? I’m going to be honest with you. It has been kinda hard…just like any new business, I’ve put in a lot of time, and dreams, and constant brainstorming, and e-mailing, and networking, and editing….lots of editing. All this along with a full time job. Sean also works full time and goes to school full time. And now, we have a baby. So you can imagine how hard it is some times to keep up our little “family business”, along with our crazy personal lives. And then we were having some struggles trying to figure out how we can spend all the time we can with our baby during this important time… But with tons of work, and crazy schedules, it was a little frustrating. But we prayed, we prayed A LOT. And we thought about it till we could not think about it any more. And Sean said “You are quitting your job. Your quitting your job to stay home with Jordan, and your going to be a “full time” photographer” ….well, it was something along those lines ;) . But the words were scary. The words are scary. But they needed to be said, it needed to be done. So ladies and gents. That is my big news. You, my amazing friends and clients - have me 100%! Well, ya know…after I spend as much time humanly possible with my adorable baby boy, and amazing husband ;) .
I obviously have wanted to be a full time photographer since the beginning. And I am so glad that this dream has become a reality. It is time to take this to the next level, baby! :)
So on that note, I need your help. Yes, you. You know some one getting married…maybe having a baby, probably some one graduating high school….these people, they need their picture taken.
And us? well we want to do it. We REALLY want to do it! So help us out , yeah? We will make it worth your time, promise! Just make sure to tell your friends tell us that you sent them!
And let it be said. Don’t put off your dreams people. This might sound cheesy…but I can’t tell you how amazing it is to know that I am 100% doing everything I absolutely love. The thought of spending all of my time with my baby, and taking care of the most amazing brides and grooms, and actually getting to see my friends….I could not ask for anything more! :)
So , that’s all for now. Thanks so much to all of our beautiful couples that have brought us this far, and to the fantastic couples that we get to work with in 2011! And of course a big time thank you to our friends that were so excited for us as we were trying to get here. Thank you sooo much!
Lots of love,
Oh, and of course every post is better with pictures.... so I will end this post with a picture of what I traded my 6:30am alarm clock in for. A much much sweeter way to wake up! :)
