It's that time of year again when the phone starts ringing, and emails keep my phone a buzzin'. It's that time when people start making their photographic plans for the year. And, I love it!
It has been brought to my attention, that while I think I can do everything, I cannot. I am currently taking Microbiology to finish up (as some of you know) prerequisites to get into nursing school. I've applied to a couple of different programs, and am SO excited about my new career possibilities. But, I thought I would be able to handle it all. Turns out...maybe I was wrong. There, I said it. I was wrong. Boy, oh boy. I bet there are a few of you enjoying THAT phrase coming from my mouth! But, it's true. It's crazy up in the Jay crib!
Yeah, the new year has a way of making you take stock of your life, your priorities, and your schedule. And, if the new year doesn't...completing your tax-prep sure will! So, while I will definitely fulfill the appointments I do have on the calendar, I will not be taking any new ones. This tears me up! I love it so much, but I just can't do it all. My girls will have to be my creative outlet for the time being.
I would like to thank all of my customers who have been SO sweet, and supportive, and loyal. And, in two years, maybe I will get the photography part of my life back. But, it is clear that God is leading me in a different direction. I pray for my clients, especially as I edit your sweet pics. So, if you have an extra minute, would you pray for me? This next few years are going to be tough ones. Morgan will be a senior in high school, Bradyn will be an 8th grader, Anna will be in daycare for the first time, and I will be in school FULL-TIME. Poor Charlie. Pray for him the most. :)
I have a LOAD of photographer friends who are AMAZING! I would be glad to give you names and urls. Just drop me a line. :)
With much love and gratitude for you all,
