I have to start this blog post by saying I am very blessed to have been so busy with sessions, during the first part of this year! I usually only shoot about half of the sessions the first part of the year, as I've shot this year. All of my clients rock!!! Non clients too... This small business has really started to grow, basically because of word of mouth. So, thank you to clients, non clients, friends, family, everyone who shares my work on social media pages and everyone who recommends HBP! Y'all are awesome!!
Though I wasn't blogging most of this year (lol), I did do a lot of volunteering at my daughter's preschool, when she was in school. There were some really good times and I worked along with a lot of awesome moms, teachers and school employees, plus I got to know my daughter's classmates. :)
Now that it's summertime, I try to spend most of my free time with my daughter, and with both my daughter and husband on weekends. So editing and answering emails have to start between 5 and 6am, then end around 8, or 9am, when she wakes up. As long as I maintain that, my days are all about enjoying time with my daughter and family, as much as I can, then I shoot sessions in the evening, at sunset. So, let me go ahead and say how thankful I am to be able to reap all of the benefits of a stay at home mom AND be able to work. It's taken about 5 years to get to this point, so, thanks again for helping me grow, it means a lot! Thanks to my husband too, of course!
And, these are my favorite shots from child sessions, for the first part of 2017... in no particular order:
Thanks for looking!
