The hardest part is finding balance.  I was driving to a session that I had been looking forward to for weeks when I found myself in tears.  It just hit me.  I wanted so badly to be with my family.  I fill my weekdays with classes, homework, studying, sessions, and editing, while my weekends are filled with more sessions and editing.  I missed my family terribly.  I missed time to myself.  Relaxation.  Anything that didn’t involve my computer or textbooks.

We just love what we do so much.  Trust me, I know what your heart feels because I feel it too.

 There was editing to be done, galleries to post, and orders to place.  I allowed myself to feel guilty for a total of five minutes.  Then, I let it go.  Whether you’re a 19-year-old college kid or a wife and mother of three, it’s so important that you don’t get so caught up in capturing other families’ memories that you miss out on your own.  I went to the dance.

Smiles and lots of love,
