Here we are breaking into 2016! It's been a year of growth both in my business and my family. A week away from my second Imaging USA convention and we are booking clients for next fall already.  The time seems to fly by and the seasons change in the blink of an eye.  The best we can do is hold on to the moments and try to document them before they are gone!  Here's to another year of fun and new discoveries!

Summer Fun Life JoyLife Joy

Just because Summer is the busy season doesn't mean there isn't time to slow down and have some fun!!  Find that balance and take the time to appreciate the things that are passing you by faster than you can soak it all in.  I am sure there are days this little one wants me to put down the camera and join her, and most days I do my best to make that happen.  I couldn't ask for a better CEO and inspiration to keep this venture on track.

Let’s all take a minute and..... I find myself sitting here feverishly trying to apply all the knowledge obtained from the PPA Conference in Nashville so my head doesn't explode!  The constant tweaking of our website and setting up photo shoot opportunities keeps me moving forward.  It is strange how it all seems like climbing Mount Everest at the beginning but once the pieces start falling in place you see the summit.  It is still long road ahead but I take comfort in the fact that at least I'm moving in the right direction!  A huge thank you to all the speakers at the Imaging USA/PPA Conference for motivating us all and helping us realize that it is a lot of work and a whole lot more than just taking "pretty" pictures.  The business side is a headache, but a necessary part of success, so if I'm not behind the camera you'll find me at the desk editing or researching the next step.  Balance between my time running a small business and entertaining the just turned 2 year old Boss/Editor can seem daunting at times.  Speaking of balance, she tells me it's time to wrap up this blog and grab some crayons...this sign from a recent ALA Shoot says it all...

Let's see where this takes us This tiny little person has flipped our world upside down and inside out.  Since the day she graced us with her presence to the here and now it's changed the way I view the world.  Photography has been a part of my life since the day I was gifted a small film camera as a young boy.  Always a hobby and never considered a career path, photography sat idle on the back burner of life.  I now invite you along for the ride and a glimpse of where this new turn in life takes our little family.  I'll finish up this very first blog entry as I'm quite new to this and my aforementioned 22 month old editor wants to watch "Wheels on the Bus".
