We love getting to work with our wonderful couples and lovely families. It all sounds great, and it is! The problem is we forget to sit, enjoy the season, and take the time to rest. We are getting near the end of the holidays, and we are starting to realize how busy that we’ve been.
The busier that we get, the more we’ve realized we need to have some boundaries in our work/life balance. When we were packing to head to Katie’s parents house, she mentioned she didn’t want to spend all of her down time editing photos. That’s when we had to make some decisions of when and when we would and wouldn’t be working during the holidays. Katie said she wouldn't be tied to her computer on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and that the days after Christmas would be much lighter in terms of work load. Instead, she brought her camera to capture family on Christmas! It’s easy for us to spend all of our free time working on the photo business. In fact, most times Katie feels like she’s wasting her time if she isn’t editing pictures, responding to clients, or creating blog posts.
We love our side business. It has quickly become our passion. This year, we decided we needed to pause our passion for a couple days to rest and recharge for the New Year! Tired photographers are not good photographers.
