Hello, hello, and ohh do I miss you all!
This weekend would have been the start of my wedding season, and instead of picking out what lenses to use, I'm picking out another set of jammies for the day. UGH! My heart literally aches for those who have had to cancel their special days. In addition to missing all those happy tears at weddings, I am so missing cuddling all your babies and giggling with your kids. The quiet in my home is just a bit too much.
I am cooped up with my pup, who is my little quarantine companion, and I basically only leave to pick up groceries and visit my parents. My days are spent working on a puzzle, reading, and working on projects that I have put on the back burner for years. New website, business cards, etc. It's really nice to have the time to get these things accomplished, and one of my 2020 goals was to live a more low key, slower life. 2020 really delivered. lol.
As our stay at home order was just extended today, I know many who are on my May calendar are probably going to reach out to reschedule. I am trying to be incredibly careful for the sake of loved ones and really, for everyone, so we can get back to normal life, so rescheduling is completely ok! With weather getting nicer outside, my process will be to interview everyone individually. If you are hoping to still have your session and we can both find a mutual way to feel comfortable doing it from a distance, we can of course discuss proceeding. For most though, we will reschedule and find a time when we can feel more comfortable. While yes, I can photograph from a distance, a lot of my methods are in a tight vicinity of your children, so it's best to play it safe for all.
For now, know that I miss you all so so much, send all your kiddos my love, and I hope sooner than later we'll all be saying "CHEESE & PICKLES!!"
PS - currently have binged on Unorthodox, Caliphate, (Sadly)Love is Blind, Derby Girls, Feel Good, and in the middle of A Handmaid's Tale. Iliza Schlesinger's comedy is pretty funny for background noise (Netflix). I get my daily dose of news from the podcast The Daily, from the New York Times. And I've read Buy Yourself the F***ing Lillies by Tara Schuster (LOVED) and Everything is Figureoutable by Marie Forleo (Liked).
I also tried to make pancakes for the first time ever and they're pretty awful without milk. Hang in there friends!
