a normal day.

Today actually felt like a normal day. I worked my day job & had a great day. After I went over to my parents house so my mom could start re-teaching me how to crochet.(more on that later.) Then I got a good work out in at the gym (haven't been there since September.. yikes!) ran to the grocery store, made a good dinner at home, edited pictures, crocheted while watching Netflix & just got to relax at home. I know this all sounds so silly but it was nice and refreshing to have a day not to be rushing from one place to the next, editing between my day job & running to a photo shoot, meeting deadlines & stressing out. I am not complaining one bit but running a photography business and working another full time job during busy picture season is a little overwhelming. I wouldn't trade it for the world. It is my outlet of creativity and I love it but it sure does make me appreciate days like today. I feel so blessed to have been so busy this fall & still have a few more weeks of sessions before my 'slow' season approaches but I am excited to work on a few personal photography projects as well as expand my knowledge and talents. I just want to give a shout out to my wonderful family and friends for being so supportive of me in my career choice. It brings me so much joy to be doing what I love (even though there is a few sweat drops & tears along the way) I feel extremely blessed. I have received so many kind compliments & referrals and those just always make my day! Being an artist is a hard and a beautiful thing.

Yay for normal days! :] You are an amazing photographer and SOMEDAY I am going to have you do our family photos! I just need to find a way to make it work!! Haha. Also, I need to relearn to crochet from my mom too! Haha. She taught me once and I crocheted the edge of a burp cloth and that's about it! It would be so fun to learn to do more things!
