I can’t wait until the SUMMER!!!  There is something about a Ruston summer that I love.
Maybe it’s the fact that being a college town, it becomes a ghost town.
Maybe it’s the thought of swimming, or just the reminecent feeling of not having any tests to take??

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, and I’ve decided that I’m going to take off at least 3 days per week this summer to be a mom and housewife.
I’ve never done this before!  I’ve always been photographer kelly, not mom kelly.
Posey is 18 months old, and I feel like I’m missing out on her life.
I spend so much time and brain power trying to be creative in my art, and I want to spend this summer using my creative juices on finger painting, recipes, going to the zoo, and coloring.
Don’t worry, I’ll still be photographing….although I will be taking fewer sessions than normal.
You should get your fill of Posey posts though

I’m not sure why I’m telling you this……just to write my thoughts I guess.  I want to challenge you to evaluate your life.
Why do you do what you do?  Are you neglecting people in your life for the sake of  a healthy business?
I’m going to go ahead and tell you…it’s not worth it.  Your photography will always let you down.  Your family won’t.
You may have the shoot of your life today, but guess what, it won’t satisfy you.  It will always leave you wanting something better
Please don’t take this post as me being sad or not into my work!
I’m absolutely the happiest I’ve ever been, and I’m loving photographing now more than I ever have.
I just want to keep it all in perspective.

Take the time to watch this video by Zack Arias.  It just took about 100,000 lbs off of my shoulders:
