Another Taylor post…

As ironic as it sounds having a baby has left me with more time on my hands than I had anticipated…while most photogs are out there in the middle of a crazy wedding season I find myself strangely waiting for the phone to ring to book shoots!  (Yes, please take this as a plea to book with me!!)  However…I’m not going to complain because the quiet I’ve experienced has been an amazing time to bond with my son (who is now 10 weeks old ~ !!!) and get my head back into a creative space.  I can’t believe how quickly my time alone with him has gone ~ soon I will be back working part time, away from the little guy for 20 hours a week.  It will be so hard knowing that I will be missing the giggles and smiles that I’ve come to look forward to every morning.  I’ll even be missing his little pouty cry and that LIP that he gives me just when he wants to get his way.

Staying home with Taylor these first three months has been a huge blessing.  This has been the first time in 17 years that I’ve spend more than 10 days at home…now I am looking at the end of this dream of maternity leave wishing and praying that it could last forever!  That I could be a stay at home mom, but we just aren’t there yet.  We started this photography business in the hopes that one day I would be able to be at home with our children, this continued to be the prayer of my heart.

I was reflecting on the reasons for taking up photography as a small business ~ for a long time I prayed every day that my photography would be an act of worship, that the Lord would give me the eyes to really see every person that stood in front of my lens. Over these last couple months I have really lost site of that and it started to become more about “how many sessions” and “do I measure up to…”, envious that I don’t always seem to run in the crowd of popular kids in the photography world.  Having Taylor around has given me a chance to re-evaluate my heart in photography and I plan to do just that.  I am humbled daily by how much I have yet to learn about how powerful an image is, I never want to take that for granted…

In the meantime, I am posting more photos of our little boy, I hope you enjoy them as much as I am enjoying taking them!!

get ready for…THE LIP.  My son is CA–ute!!!.

OHOH OH these are my absolute FAVORITE!!  I love Taylor with his daddy…
