This time of year is hard as a photographer who also works full time. I know everyone who schedules a session in these last few months of the year is thinking of Christmas cards and gifts, and the pressure I put on myself is real. I’m always really careful not to over-schedule myself so I can get photos edited and posted timely. One thing I can’t plan for, though? The flu. Oh, I got my flu shot! But then I got a strain that wasn’t covered, and I didn’t realize it until I was already two days in – too late to go get Tamiflu. So on Thanksgiving day, when I had planned to wake up early and edit before heading to my sister’s house for lunch, I instead battled a fever and chills. So much for that four-day weekend to catch up!
So Jessica and Ricky’s photos are later than I’d like them to be. It took all week before I had the endurance to not crash immediately upon getting home from work. Hopefully they’ll think they were worth the wait! I loved the fact they wanted to shoot at their beautiful new home in Jay! I watched the progress photos as they were posted on Facebook, and getting to shoot out there was really a treat! The home looks new and yet like they’ve been there forever, if that makes sense. Like it’s just meant to be!
