3.24.15 | Dusting off the DSLR

Spring has sprung and my DSLR got a dusting off. It tends to go into hibernation mode from January 1 until spring. As the temps rise and the grass becomes green – it I start to feel the need to start shooting. Here are a few I took recently.

iPad time.

I caught Ethan in the kitchen. My sneaky fast boys. I can usually find them in the kitchen getting a snack.

On our way to see the Cinderella movie.

For my local friends… I recently posted my spring/summer session dates over on my photo blog. I have decided only to do photo session this year one day a week, on Sundays late afternoons/early evenings from April – October.  Yes this is fewer session dates then I have done in the past. But last year I was overwhelmed.  Especially in the Fall. I am blessed to have so many of you that want me to take your photos.  But at this point in my life – photography is a part time business for me. I still work a normal office job – which actually includes travel and night meetings (not complaining, just a fact).  I was in over my head last fall – committing to too much.  I don’t want to give up photography. But I have to set limits and boundaries to the dates/times when I do take photos for my side business. Otherwise I just feel like I am working all the time, and I have no down time or fun time with my family.  That’s not fair to them or me.   So the dates are set. Some dates are already taken.  I will post Fall dates in about mid-July. First come, first serve. Contact me to grab your date.

I am looking forward to more spring photos and then summer photos and then fall photos – my favorite time of year to take photos.
