Finding the right words to share my thoughts and numerous heart changes for this post…

Over this past year the passion, fulfillment I once had in wedding photography just isn’t there. Honestly it’s in part because I became a mother and all my time, body, mind is for her and that changes people and for me it has changed me in the best of ways. Mix that with a career that is constantly undervalued and you have this outcome, my life and figuring it all out, again. It’s not that I don’t love photography because I’ll never stop taking photographs, I promise. It’s that Im finding no joy in the race of this industry. So I am stepping away for now. Maybe it will come back to me someday. What I truly want you to know though is this… Don’t be sad for me. I feel good about this decision, so good. This year has been hard at times, but in that I have learned more about my self and am still learning because I am ever growing. There are pieces of me uncovered that I want to explore, desires and new passions I want to pursue and nurture, so I will!

I’ll leave you with this photograph of me & Ivy in a field because it sums up my heart’s desires at the moment. Simplicity, family, rolling hills and wild flowers. In the meantime, I will be posting more about our family, motherhood and all the things that bring me joy.

I will not be booking weddings at this time, but am happy to help refer you to any vendors you might be looking for! xo

Good morning! I am wondering if you shoot wedding photos? I’m looking for an engagement/wedding photographer for July 15, 2017. I would love more information about your photography and pricing, thank you!

You will never regret the time you spend with your babies, only the time you don’t. Trust me, I know. Best!

Oh love, I can so understand and relate to this in a lot of ways. I’m happy you’re happy with your decision and still hope to one day get in front of your camera (and I promise to pay you ALL the money because you’re so worth it!)
