So I am back from what feels like 3 solid months of traveling. Dave & Mel's wedding in Brisbane was shear brilliance. Photobooth photos above prove the level of fun we had. (How did we fit our 4 noggins in that tiny photobooth?!..and why am I hogging the whole frame?)
I'm home. Summer wedding season 2010 has reached it's end and I can't get any work done before I say a few things...
I feel so grateful.
I don't say it enough.
I feel emotional thinking of the friendships with clients we made this year and years before. I feel overwhelmed at the gift I have been given of the all important task of documenting so many formative moments.
Sure I'm exhausted. Sure at times I feel burned out. No, being a photographer is not easy or glamorous. It's hard work and takes a toll on you physically, emotionally and mentally. But as I spent this summer shooting weddings with a wee babe growing inside me, I felt immense gratitude at the opportunity I have to work for myself, CREATE and control to an extent the story of my life. I have changes rapidly approaching my life and lifestyle and I feel comfort in the fact that I have photography. I have a career I really really really love and care about. I have a career flexible enough to let me be a business woman, a wife and a mother. Sometimes I just don't feel deserving.
So many blessings that I can only hope to give back.
Thank you to my beautiful clients for supporting me and my work...and for trusting me.
I really do love all of you to the moon and back.
