Availability (or lack of)

Hello loyal blog readers and clients!

I just wanted to touch base on my lack of availability for September and October. I am currently 99% blocked until November. As much as I'd love to squeeze everyone in, at this point there is just no more room in my schedule. Unless I give up on sleep. :(

It's a very busy time for photographers, we're finishing up summer weddings, senior photos are in full swing, and families are wanting to book for fall colors and holiday card photos. School has also started up which makes certain days a bit easier for me but at the same time, I am out shooting almost every night of the week and I just hate to only see my kids after school for 15 minutes and then have to take off for a shoot. I always wanted to be that mom who had freshly baked chocolate chip cookies made when my kids got home from school. :) I've been working so much that my 5 year old said to me, "Mama, when I grow up I don't want to be on the computer all of the time so I don't want to be a photographer."

So this is me drawing the line. I love my job and I want to continue to love it and that means finding some work/life balance.

If you want to schedule please look into November and December! It's difficult to say no, but please try to understand. Thanks!
