Pretty black and whites from Annie and Austin's wedding last weekend! It's on the blog today! Annie, your entire gallery is uploading now! I can't wait for you to see them all!
I have heard people say that work life balance does not exist but I believe with all my heart that it does. You just have to seriously commit to it. In my opinion it's easy to be busy all the time, say yes to everything, and not hold boundaries. It's way more difficult to say no, choose work hours, limits, (and stick with them) and decide to live the life you truly want to live. I chose busy for a couple of years and it did not serve my marriage, my family, or my sanity. Really grateful for the lessons I had to learn the hard way but working too much for a few years when our kiddos were little will ALWAYS be a regret I have to live with. If I could give advice to any new business owners I would tell them to choose work that they love but not to love it too much that you miss out on the really good stuff of life!
It's only noon and I've already photographed an outdoor newborn session and sent my sweet bride Annie sneak peeks from her wedding two days ago! Now I'm off to the golf course to watch my son do his thing! Happy Monday friends!
My timehop told me today that SIX years ago my husband and I were doing the exact same thing... shooting a wedding together! He was my second shooter for three whole years when our kids were little. It's rare to have him by my side at weddings these days because our kids schedules are so busy but I am thankful for a roadtrip together and getting to do work that I still love even after ten years! Emily and Jason, your wedding is still a favorite even after all these years!!
School is officially out for summer for our kids and my hubby! I scheduled blog posts and social media and am ready for summer nights and sunshine! (Remember this night @kylieswanson ?! The best day at the @fourseasons Punta Mita!!)
SO excited for Annie and Austin to get married at the Marland Mansion tomorrow!! They met in the 8th grade and have waited a long time for this day!
I've got quite a few babies on the books for the next few weeks and am not sad about it! Would you tag a pregnant friend to let them know we are having a summer newborn special?
