Virginia Maternity: New Starts

How do I say this honestly… I have been putting off blogging. I have been running myself ragged trying to do everything, but  not being able to enjoy what I am doing because I am anticipating what is coming next. I want to make a confession: I am NOT Superwoman. Surprise!  There I stated the obvious but some how it felt necessary. I have been around amazing woman who seem to do it all, effortlessly and they make me feel like… less than. Ok, they don’t make me feel less than, I do. I look at all they are able to do and juggle and it seems easier for them somehow. I don’t make all my meals from scratch, I can’t make an amazing birthday cake for my kids, my make-up isn’t always perfect (sometimes it is the complete opposite), I am not a size 6, my house is not perfectly styled and clean, my children do not always behave, and the list goes on…. Either I am hanging out with Super Women and I am less than… Or__________________

Why do I say this on a photography website? Because I have been hearing lately that before clients want to get pictures they want to: loose weight, get their hair done, it will take to much time to pick the perfect outfit, they don’t know of any ideal locations, etc. etc. etc. Please don’t misunderstand, I don’t say this to drum up more business. Because my plate is spilling over full these days. It is to say that no time will ever be perfect and sometimes the imperfections of reality are what we are going to want to remember years down the road. The simple truth :)

Here is a picture from one of my last sessions and I thought it was great. 1) because it is the truth of motherhood and 2)it speaks volumes of love for her child and that is what will be remembered + it is pretty funny! Heidi was so relaxed and stunningly beautiful. The was she loves her son seems to radiate out of her. She moves in such peace and grace. She is fun and makes me laugh but she also encourages me to listen to my inner voice and seek peace. She just had a baby girl and I will be sharing a few of those pictures soon.

And all it takes to make a picture perfect is to be present in the moment and loving the people you are with :)

I am going to try to blog more. And make more things from scratch,

try not to make inappropriate jokes, pick out jewelry that matches my clothes…
