I can’t really believe that I’m writing this, but it’s time. After a lot of thought, prayer, and time, I’ve decided to close my photography business. As I write this, I’m sipping my coffee that I’ve heated up for the 4h time today, and the older kids are playing noisily upstairs while Milo attempts to nap through it (he’s a champion napper though). I love photography. I loved being able to freeze time for families, seniors, newborns, couples who were engaged and wedding days. I look back at the past 5 years and I can’t even believe all the wonderful people I met, the friendships I made, the things I learned about business and photography. I can’t help but feel a little sad that it’s coming to an end, and who knows, maybe when my kids are older I will take it up again, but for now I know that this is what God has called me to do. Homeschooling and running my household is not something I take lightly and it’s something I want to excel in. It requires so much of me physically, emotionally, and spiritually and that’s why I can’t “have the best of both worlds” and run a photography business as well. Nathan and I believe that this choice is the right one for our family and I feel fulfilled accomplishing it. Even on the days when the baby won’t nap, the 5 year old is throwing a tantrum over her sparkly gel pen running out of ink, the 7 year old is destroying her bedroom while “sewing” a quilt and the 8 year old is taking 2 hours to finish 2 pages of math…There’s no where else I’d rather be. Thank you SO MUCH to every one of my clients. It was an honor to capture your memories for you!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
P.S I have something new and exciting in the works and hope to reveal soon!
