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,
