Hi there! It has been such a very long time since I have posted anything. I am not going to share any shoots with you today, just sort of catch you up on my life. I’ll give you the incredibly brief version.
In late 2013, my husband, Bart, graduated from his orthodontic residency + we packed up the family + headed west. We purchased an orthodontic practice in the heart of San Antonio + I was offered a great position at USAA, which I gladly accepted. Bodie, our kiddo, finished Kindergarten at an amazing school in the Alamo Heights Independent School District + made some great friends in our neighborhood. Somewhere along the way in those first 6 months, I decided it would be a great idea to start a full-time MBA program at UTSA, on top of my full-time career, helping Bart with the practice, + being a mom. (I am half way through my second semester and graduate in May 2016, which really can’t get here soon enough!) Then we decided to finally get Bodie the puppy he has always wanted! Birdie, our new Goldendoodle, showed up on Christmas morning and has become a loved member of our little family. Then… to top off the year… we found out we are pregnant!!! And it is a girl! Needless to say… 2014 was amazing + exhausting. There were great times + really trying times. We had some grand adventures (Colorado, California, Florida, Georgia) + made some wonderful friends. We also had so many great family + friends visit us in our new home! Bart + I have been tested over + over this last year; we are learning so much about each other + our relationship. Bodie has proven to us how incredibly resilient + loving he is. He is such a joy to spend life with.
Needless to say, I didn’t have much time at all to think about photography, much less pick up my camera often. And I miss it an incredible amount. With everything going on in my life, I have lost the time that I used to fill my creative needs with. Fast-forward to 2015. I’m ready. My camera misses me + I miss my camera. I don’t think I will have the time to operate my photography business, but I plan to do a lot of creative personal work (photos and writing) this year that fills that void for me. And maybe I’ll find time in 2016 to get back to my business.
I would love for you to follow along with me!
And because no post is the same without photos, I put together a collage of some of the highlights from 2014. (Mostly iPhone photos!)
