This past week has been one that I wouldn’t want to re-live. If you read my previous post, you found out that we just had a pregnancy loss (our 2nd one in the last 3 years). Tomorrow makes one week since we lost our baby. If you’ve ever been through it, I am SO sorry that you had to go through it. It’s a journey I wouldn’t want anyone to ever have to walk…but even in that, I have found that the best thing I can do in this moment is to just keep walking. Being a mom makes me happy. Being a wife makes me happy. Being a photographer is a special thing that I also love that I feel isn’t even like a job for me. It’s this special gift that I get to do in order to bless others and make them happy, and I love to just focus on others during my sessions and make them feel as special as they are. For those who bring in their brand new babies for me to work with, it’s still all about your baby. Each one is unique, and I love that I get to make pieces of art from their newborn sessions that you’ll enjoy for years. It’s really something I don’t even deserve to get to do, but I still get to do it anyway. Thank you for that. Without each and every one of you who chooses to get a session with me, you’re choosing my art (and I know there are some awesome other photographers you could choose instead of me) and I just want to say how thankful/grateful I am for that. I wouldn’t be a photographer without all of you. You allow me to live this dream of mine and chase after it.
With that being said, I’m back to editing and scheduling sessions. I’m taking no more than 3 sessions a week so I can focus more on making sure everyone gets their edits back in a timely manner since I had to take this last week off. 🙂 For those also sending cards/messages, I also wanted to say thank you for that. It’s been comforting getting to talk to some of you and really know how much everyone cares, and I appreciate it so much.
