We’re right in the middle of crazy busy season and this time of year I tend to get swamped, dragged down with piles of work and responsibilities. Taxes, billing, ordering, receipts and meetings and website updates and, and, and…
sometimes it feels like that not-so-fun-stuff is ALL I ever get to do.
.Do you ever feel that way? I adore what I do and I’m so blessed to do it, but sometimes I just get burned out on the business side for a minute! But you know what? Shooting and editing pretty much never makes me feel like that. Pulling up one of my sweet couples’ Bentonville engagement photos, flipping through them, seeing the smiles and the laughter and the kisses and the derp faces (oh yes everybody, there are derp faces in EVERY session) just puts a big ol’ smile on my face. Sometimes I wonder what people must think I’m doing as I sit in the coffee shop editing with a big old grin and an occasional giggle. Ha!
I’ll keep it a secret from my fellow coffeeshop-goers, but I’ll let you in on what about it has that effect on me. It’s the JOY! If you’ve been following my work on this blog for very long, you might have noticed a trend in my engagement sessions. My clients are awesome and gorgeous and when we shoot together, we laugh. A LOT. I loveeeeee joy, and I think my love of joy attracts joyful couples to my work, and the cycle just keeps on spinning. It’s pretty dang awesome! Ryan and Emily were absolutely no exception, and doing their Bentonville engagement photos was a heck of a fun evening! I am OBSESSED with this session and I can’t wait for you guys to see it either. Scroll away and enjoy!
