2 items of good news tonight. FIRST: The Winner of the last contest is:
Carree!!!! Who said:
Oh Carree, I'm blushing... and yes Tyler is hot but keep your mitts off. Har har, just kidding. I mean, no, seriously, he's mine.
So congrats Carree, you get to go SHOPPING! Lucky gal.
My next item of good news is that I AM ALL CAUGHT UP ON SESSIONS! I'm all caught up on orders! And Christmas cards! And all the other things that were piling up on my to-do list. I almost don't know how to feel.
This fall has been a BIG one for me. I knew I was taking on a lot of sessions, but it turns out that in Sept- Dec I had 153 sessions and 5 weddings. That sure felt like a lot, and I'm glad I came out alive. I did it mostly all by myself, with the exception of my dear (hot) husband Tyler who helped me out behind the scenes when he started to see that I was going a little loopy. I also have awesome friends who often asked if they could take my kids to their house so I could work my way out of neck-deep photo stuff. Couldn't have done this without them all.
This season I came closer than ever to thinking that maybe this Blue Lily thing really is a job, and not just a passion. There were many times that I wondered about my sanity. Who attempts 153 sessions without a secretary? An assistant? A worker-bee? Only a crazy person. Turns out that not only am I crazy, but I find a little stress and a busy schedule to be completely thrilling. I'm so weird.
I really want to thank all my clients for giving Blue Lily the old college try. We had a lot of fun, didn't we? I hope to do it again soon. I have only 4 sessions left this month, and while that sounds like a great vacation, I'll miss meeting so many new faces, pushing the limits of my creativity, staying up all hours of the night doing orders, and all the fun stuff that comes along with Blue Lily.
(one more thing.... if you are have emailed me in the last 2 months with a photography question or needing advice, I'll start to wade through the emails next week and get a reply to you.)
