I’m not much of a personal blogger because any free time I may have I try to get some sleep or catch up on phone calls or run to the grocery store, clean the house, take the dogs for a walk, spend time with my husband, weed the garden, water the garden, etc, etc. This time a year doesn’t allow for any days off – EVER – because it’s back to back weddings, high school seniors, miscellaneous jobs and I have to pack it all in the summer and fall because come winter the bank account goes on a steady decline until the end of Spring and time to do it all over again. A summer “day off” I might only put in 6 hours of photoshop time compared to a normal day which runs between 12-14 hours, 7 days a week. For every wedding I shoot it takes me 2 weeks to photoshop it and polish it up and if I’m shooting a wedding every week-sometimes two , well that means that every week I fall one week further behind all the while having a daily photo shoot of a senior, or engagement session, or whatever…you get the drift. Why am I telling you all this? Because my sweet, sweet, beautiful niece, Sarah asked if she could come spend some time with me and Uncle Al because she misses us. How could I say “no” to such an adorable freckle face cutie patootie? So on my day off today I swam in the lake, went for a boat ride, visited the neighbors horses and played with her 11 dogs, fished, went for an ATV ride, played in the sand, layed in the sun, played fetch with Dudley, did Sarah’s hair and for fun, just for fun took out the camera because why? I love taking pictures! That’s what I do. So to my long list of clients – I promise I’m working around the clock to get your galleries done as fast as I can, but for today – one day – my day went to Sarah ….and it was wonderful!
