It was just a weekend. A jump in the car, go to the city, take in as much as you can type of trip. Of course, we were there for work… but since I think my job is fun it’s pretty easy to blur the lines. It was also the last trip I’ll take before the baby. I know, crazy that this season of expecting has been flying by. Also, hilarious to have surprised a few people when turning around and having them see that little baby bump (it’s actually not so little). I’m glad that I live “close” enough to make a weekend trip to New York City. They seem to come up at least twice a year, but I can’t say that I would mind a few more. Travel is in my blood…
… but for now, we’ll stay put. Prepare for the arrival of #2 in February and do all the things photographers do in the off season : update websites, finish accounting + taxes, doubt how good we actually are, plan styled shoots, think about ways to serve our clients better, and so on. Like most people who work for themselves we are relentless when it comes to getting things done and taking time off. Babies have a way of forcing you into that.
We wouldn’t really get better if we didn’t force ourselves to change. Maybe that’s not what people think of when they have kids, but any change pushes you to grow. It’s actually kind of exciting to see how things will unfold for this coming year. So here’s to more change. Change that effects all areas of our lives and clarifies what we hold dear. Change that asks us to do things better and forces us to become who we want to be. I’m excited.
Also, credit goes out to my talented husband who snapped this picture of me in the streets of Dumbo while capturing an engagement session. He’s getting pretty good, don’t you think?
