Elena’s first birthday was a great way to celebrate my return to shooting sessions! I admit it was not what I expected – I don’t try to bend and stoop in my daily life anymore, but those are natural movements when shooting. I had to accommodate for my ankle, but I think it went pretty well. Elena is such a cute, happy little girl, and big sister Bella is still warming up to me. Maybe by the time she’s five she will be okay with me when I first show up. Maybe not. I will bet money, though, that Elena will give me a high five when I leave sooner than Bella does. 😉
Don’t expect my posts and scheduling to be back to the level it was before surgery for a long, long time. I’m taking it slowly and not pushing myself. Basically that means I’m shooting my current Whittle Steps kids right now and nothing much else. I’m being very selective about locations and the number of sessions I will do each weekend. It’s still frustrating, but it’s so, so good to have the camera in my hands again and see all my wonderful kids again! I’ve missed this like you wouldn’t believe.
