In all of January and February I had 3 photo sessions. Which is quite honestly 3 more than I expected. The weather was miserable, but one brave soul (who wanted professional head shots for his business) toughed out the cold for photos. And two families had me come and do indoor sessions with babies. But other than that, business has been predictably slow. It was nice to have a bit of a breather after the holidays which were SO busy with sessions (hello Christmas card season). I felt like I never stopped to breathe in November and December. So the lull was perfectly placed. But guess what, my friends, spring is here. 🙂
In the past week I’ve had 6 photo sessions. In a week. That’s twice what I’ve had in the past two months. And in the coming two weeks I have 7 more sessions scheduled (and lots scheduled in the upcoming months). So currently I’m in the midst of the busy-ness. And I’m loving it. I’ve been refreshed after the slower months of winter and I’m rejuvenated and full of new ideas.
However, the rest of life doesn’t slow down when the photography business picks up. All the things that I was already busy with are still there. Christopher, nannying, mentoring, volunteer work, social life, blogging, exercise, house projects, etc. I just have to prioritize a little more during these busier times. So if you notice I go an extra day or two than usual without blogging, this is why. But I’m still here. 🙂
I love this blog and I love sharing with you guys. I just might do a little less of it in the next couple of weeks (or who knows, I might keep up with it just fine!). But if you find yourself just really missing me, feel free to pop over to my Facebook photography page to see what my latest project is. Or check out Insta because I tend to post on my Instagram (@rach.vendetti) even when I’m not blogging as much. 🙂
Is your work seasonal at all? Do you have times when you are busier than others?
