slowing down

Those who know me know how passionate I am about my work. I’m often called a workaholic… and many other names with the same meaning. It’s hard not to be a workaholic when I love what I do so much. It doesn’t feel like work! I’ve always wanted to do a lot and live life in the fast lane. I can’t stand wasting time. After having Cameron, he has taught me to slow down and actually savor each second. I spent the weekend working on my 2011 goals and took some time to reflect on how much time I’m willing to spend apart from him. To have time for my family, I am no longer taking weddings for 2011.  2011 is going to be such a great year. I have amazing couples & weddings this year – can’t wait to share those wedding stories with you! And I look forward to my family time and making new memories with little Cameron. 2011 is the year of balance!

I am still taking portraits for 2011 (weekdays only) – like engagement sessions, boudoir, family/baby portraits, etc.   I’m working on my 2012 calendar and will be taking 2012 weddings in the next few weeks.
