For the first time in a long time, I’m enjoyed what most people know of as “the weekend.” Even though I have the chance to take days off during the week through the busy season, it’s usually just broken up into time here and there instead. This time we stayed close to home, having friends over for dinner and relaxing with a movie on the couch. It doesn’t sound like much of a feat, but we recently switched our dining room + living rooms so that we could use the living space once Daphne goes to bed… and it’s those simple things that make a big difference at home.

This year has looked different in a lot of ways, and the changes on my blog have largely had to do with not sharing finished work as soon as it’s completed. There are a few reasons for this, the main one being that I found blogging was becoming such a focus it was taking away time from continuing to edit other work. If I’m being honest, a wedding blog post will take around 2 hours and while I want that to be faster, it generally is true. I already know of one program I think I’ll finally invest in to cut down that time, but let me know if you have other suggestions.

It’s easier to keep up with social media than to create a plan to utilize it, and as I continue to grow as a photographer and move my business forward I hope to be intentional with my sharing. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want you, my clients, to be taken care of. I want to balance finishing + delivering your images in the right way with showing them on this or any space. I think this has been on my mind so much because I feel like I haven’t done a great job of both managing expectations and delivering above and beyond. If I have not yet blogged your wedding (and there are several) I look forward to sharing your day, and if you have any thoughts on seeing your pictures on this space I’d love to hear your thoughts.
