After some prompting from others, in Fall 2010, I began a journey. I was a stay at home mom of 2 girls. I always loved creative and artistic things and I absolutely ADORED photographing children, toddlers, babies and well, life. So, I made the jump, turning what I loved into a business.
In Summer 2013, I decided to go back to teaching. My girls were in school and I truly thought, God was directing me back towards that path. Though I still enjoyed photography and couldn't completely stop doing it, as hard as it was to balance, I taught Kindergarten before I had kids and always planned to go back.
Fast forward to this year. In about November I could tell, something wasn't right. I couldn't pin point it, but I was "off". I was stressed.There was no balance in my family, career, basically everything. So, I began to pray.
Slowly, God began showing me the door was closing. I was no longer to remain a teacher. It was hard to accept and very scary, but after much prayer and God showing me in many ways, I accepted this.
Last Friday, June 3rd was my last day of teaching. Not only closing the doors on having a 1st grader and a 2nd grader, but on my career as a teacher. It is a odd place to be. In the middle of major life changes. I feel God is pointing me back to photography. Back to expressing my creativity and capturing those precious little ones and their families. Capturing moments in time that you can't go back to. Weddings, Graduation, a precious new life in your family and of course how fast our little ones grow. So, consider this blog post the official announcement. I am back. Full time. Praying God leads me and uses this talent he gave me. And thanking all of you who have stayed with me all along. Through the ups and downs. The VERY limited availability due to school. The removal of Christmas and Fall Minis due to the craziness that is the beginning of the school year. For staying with me through it all. I give you my heartfelt and deepest thanks. And now you can look forward to more blog posts of all the amazing families I get to meet and capture. The little lives arriving into this world. The wonder and awesomeness of life.
