Ella Lu has always been one of my babies. I’ve watched it grow and have loved every minute of this amazing adventure you have all been on with me. As much as I love Ella Lu I feel like I have missed out on so much (EVEN being able to “work from home”) because the building of a business is no easy feat. I’m never off. I always feel obligated to answer emails, texts, voicemails….whenever they came through. I haven’t always been the best at balancing work and family life. I’ve never been good at saying NO. I said yes more times then I should have and those that are closest to me paid the price. Time is invaluable and unfortunately we just don’t have enough minutes in the day. My girls are 5 and 7 and growing at a rate that literally makes my heart ACHE. There are so many days I wish I could rewind. So many weekends I wish I had back. I cannot. None of us can. All I can do is be the best, most present mama I can be for them from here on out. We have a homeschooling adventure in our near future and I am excited at that prospect and what it will mean for our family. More service days together, more traveling together, more TIME. I will not be giving up photography. I will be taking on ONE client session per month starting in January 2018. My Ella Lu page will still be used to keep up with what little bit I do shoot (and LOTS of my girls.) For the remainder of this year I will be taking on 3 sessions per month. First come first serve. Once those slots are gone that month will be closed (that includes September-December.) I hope to see most of my families this year!
