His name is Miles, weighs about 25lbs, measures about one foot and 1/2 and although he is a little baby he has the funniest personality! I guess I did not know that he would have his own likes and dislikes, just like a normal person! He IS a person, just little for now. Today, I have been thinking of the reasons that I became a photographer–and there are so many of them but the most important one has been to document my baby’s life! 2009 was a year of change for me! Miles was born in February and literally 4 weeks later the wedding season hit full steam and between shooting weddings, assisting other photographers I came to realize that my main inspiration is to be the best I can be is my son. I have learned an incredible amount of information ever since he was born, but what I learned was to prioritize my life. I realize that photography is very important to me, but not more than Miles and the love that I feel for him, for that reason I decided to become better in everything that I do. Not that I have it down or anything, but I am trying, you know?!
We are learning everyday to be the best parents that we can be! Its a lot harder than I thought it would be, from changing diapers, to doing laundry, to replying emails, to meeting clients, editing weddings, having dinner ready…etc! I could go all day listing all the crazy things that I have to keep up with, but then I think of all the other million women who do this everyday! Not necessarily the photography part, but keeping a household together is a great amount of responsibilities. Well, just the tought of that, makes me want to push myself even harder!
So, for today, there are no fancy pictures, just one…a perfect photo of my child, who pushes me everyday..( and he starts every people, like 7am!) but anyhow…I have learned how to be a mommy, a better photographer and a better business owner. I ask you now, what inspires you?? It is it your job, your kids, your husband, your dog..? Please leave a comment about what gets you moving everyday!
Thanks for reading y’all!!
