I made an announcement on my IG account at the New Year saying that I was ‘retiring’ (lol, funny term) from photography but it’s true. I am not going to be taking any clients this year. As I say that… I have found myself saying yes to a few of my longest, dearest clients. Truth be told…. It has just become too much to juggle. I am also a Real Estate Appraiser- a mom to two young boys, a wife- and then a person who craves independent time. Something had to give and for me it was my photography business because it’s what was taking up my family time the most (weekends and summer evenings). And with kiddos skiing, playing soccer, baseball etc, and us enjoying boating and getting away during the summer- I could no longer happily balance my schedule. I have loved the past 9 years of building my business. I never expected to have the amount of clients that I did… and even last year to be my most ‘successful’ year. To some it seems odd to stop when things are going so strong, but I have always relied on my gut. And my gut said it was all too much.
Thank you so much! Check back to see if maybe I open spots and of course, I hope to actually photograph and blog my family life. Something I really miss doing,
