Looooong post ahead-but if you have ever wanted to book a session with me, don’t sleep on it. Read below to find out why: For the past 12 years, I’ve been on the sidelines for your biggest moments. I was there when you married the love of your life. I witnessed your new baby’s first Eskimo kisses and snuggles as you held them for the first time. I captured your smiles pre-diagnosis and held your hand post-diagnosis (when you thought you wouldn’t ever smile again...but you did). I’ve been there for birthdays, holidays, and the everyday moments that felt mundane, but that you soon realized were every bit as important as those big days. I’ve fallen in love with your families, and I will always hold a special place in my heart for all of you. But it’s time to move on. I am heartbroken to announce Jacki Raney Photography will be closing at the end of the year. Running a business is hard. Running a business while also working another full time job is harder. And running a business, working another full time job, going back to school, and raising humans has been the hardest. I’m in a constant state of exhaustion, stressed, and have very little time for anything outside of work. On top of that, Gabriel keeps saying things like, “mommy, do you think you can stay home this weekend so we can hang out?” You guys, mom guilt is so real. It breaks me every damn time. They are growing so fast, and I just want to cherish every single moment I have with them while they still want to spend time with me. Maybe when they are all independent teens who want nothing to do with me, we can start this whole thing up again. But for now my gut is telling me I need to pull back on something, and my gut has never steered me wrong before. You can find my schedule for the remainder of the year in my highlights, or message me for more details. I will still be taking on all weddings/year in the life/sessions that have already pre-booked for future dates! Thank you all so much for the support over the years. It has meant the world to me, especially when I first moved back to California as a single mom. You paid my bills and fed my children, and I am forever beyond grateful for that ❤
