A new chapter...

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,
