So these past couple of months have been crazy/life changing. My husband, baby and I moved out to Pennsylvania for medical school. I was nervous and sad to leave the comforts of close friends and family in Utah. We made the huge move back in July, quickly settled in, and started our new lives out here on the East coast.
We are actually loving it out here mainly because of the amazing friends we’ve already made. This sweet family (pictured below) have made the (what could have been) difficult move quite easy. Infact, we LOVE Philadelphia and we have become good friends with these guys in such a short time. They have been a HUGE blessing in our lives and we’re so thankful for them & their hospitality since we’ve been here. I could never repay them for that.
I’ve also been in a little “photography” rut mainly because I’ve been wanting to spend more time with my baby girl. Photo shoots and editing photos take quite a bit of my time ( well, a LOT a bit). Lately, I’ve felt like you couldn’t pay me enough to get me to do a photo shoot ( even though I LOVE doing it.) I just felt like I was spending too much time at the computer instead of giving my daughter the attention she needs. I also felt a little burned out because at times photographers can be underestimated. (But that’s a whole other story). Someday… when we’re makin the big bucks… I will definitely turn my photography business into a hobby and just do it for fun. It’s less stressful that way.
So, I’ve been in that sort of rut these past 6 months or so. Kind of burnt out, I guess you could say.
THANKFULLY this ADORABLE family got me out of that rut.
They reminded me WHY I do what I do.
There’s nothing like capturing the love between couples, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, etc.
There’s nothing like capturing that magical moment and getting that “perfect” photo.
During this shoot… it was just carefree. They were completely themselves and we had a blast.
I felt like I captured THEM as a little family and the love they have for each other.
THAT is why I do what I do.
Thank you, Alex, Allyson & Dean for this lovely photo shoot and for helping me remember why I LOVE doing this.
