Before I get to the images of Baby Addie, I wanted to take a minute to chat about my business...
It's HARD. I absolutely love the art of photography and editing, but by the opposite token I absolutely detest the business side. And let me tell you, the business side of photography takes up the majority of my time. So I've made a decision that I've grappled with for a long time. I'm closing my virtual door. I'm letting my website go dormant and taking down my business email address. (I'll have to change the post at the top of my blog.) I'll still shoot friends and family, but I'm no longer going to try to make it my day job.
I am going to become a "shoot and burn" photographer. I'll shoot and edit but then just hand over a CD or jump drive. I won't print anymore which actually takes quite a bit of time. Time that is precious. And there you have it! I feel good about this decision and I think my photograpy will become fun again!
Without further adieu...here's Baby Addie at 8 days old:
I have to tell you - I loved, loved, loved taking these pictures. Baby Addie was just a doll and her mom and dad were pretty cool, too! Congratulations, Todd and Stacey:)
