I decided to take a little time to focus on the big family moments that are happening in our lives, because Mamas, that's what being a Mama is all about. Time moves so quickly in these child-raising years. If we blink, we miss it. I mean, I blinked and my firstborn grew 4 inches in 6 months! I'm not even kidding. She is changing and I tell myself to grab my camera and capture her fast before she changes once again.
I'll never regret taking a couple months to ensure that her high school road was well paved with a present mother helping her navigate the gap from being exclusively home-schooled to schooling outside of our home. It's been an amazing start!
Additionally, this time off has given me time to think about my business and what I most want to accomplish with it. I keep coming back time and time again to creating heirlooms for you! You know why? Your babies are growing at warp speed just like mine. You blink and they are grown. While we can't ever slow the process down, we can freeze the moments through photography. This image, though a casual home grown one, will be precious to me when she is a mama with littles of her own. That's what I most want to give you...precious frozen time.
But, I don't want to just give you digital files that sit on your hard drives waiting for the free time to print them that rarely comes. I'm a photographer and I don't always get around to printing my images! You and I both know that we are investing our free moments caring for our families. Isn't that what we do, as Mamas? Over the last two years I have studied the art of preparing and printing wall art, just for you. Portraits are your legacy, not just some garbled information on your computer that will be useless as soon as technology changes, or heaven forbid you accidentally delete it! Anyone remember floppy disks or VHS? Prints are forever! There is something so very different about holding a gorgeous custom print in your hand that viewing on a device cannot deliver.
In 2016, I'm shaking things up a bit by personalizing your experience even more. I will be sharing this with you as 2016 approaches. My 2016 Client Guide will be ready to send out in November for the upcoming year. Take a moment to add your name to my newsletter list to be one of the first to hear about the changes coming your way.
I tell you, I'm really excited about what's to come. Think personal and professional service with products you will treasure hanging on your walls. Of course, those digi-files will still be around for those needs, but in 2016 we are going to print and we are going large!
