I try really hard not to complain about being busy. In a time when people are struggling to find work and provide for their families, I feel so absolutely blessed to have a *busy* season. So when I’m knee deep in editing, uploading galleries, and sending off packages, I remind myself that others might not be so lucky and would love to have the chance to be busy with work. And the fact that I am busy doing something I absolutely love is such a blessing. Seriously–I still pinch myself everyday when I think about what I get to do as a profession.
And while at times I might feel like I’m underwater and will never get all the things on my to-do list accomplished, I think about all the new moms that come through my studio with their newborns. No one is busier than a brand new mama. I remember feeling like it was a good day if I was showered before 4:00pm. And teeth brushing was an added bonus! And the mommy of these beautiful boys is much busier than I am, no doubt. With a two year old daughter and two sweet little guys who were born under 30 weeks, I’m sure her life is much busier than mine has ever been. But it’s the best kind of busy out there. And I feel so honored that in the busyness of life she took time out to bring her little ones to my studio. To press the pause button in the midst of the busyness and freeze time in the form of a photograph.
