Closing Time...

After much conversation and thinking and planning and worrying...Adam and I have decided I should close down my beloved studio. At first, I felt like I was back stepping, that all photographers want their own space to create and build a client base. But the more I think about having Charlie home, the more I know this is the right thing to do. I can still work, my camera can go with me wherever. I will still do weddings, I will still photograph families and children...Just in a different, less stressful way! I am so excited now...SO, let's add this to the list of things to do in the next two weeks...(Yep, we want to be out by the time we leave.)


1. Prepare everything for the trip

2. Finish building cabin and move in

3. Help my sister who is getting married next month

4. Close down and sell what we do not need from the studio.

5. Pack.

Woohoo! See, I KNEW I wanted to be so busy while we prepared to travel. Time is absolutely flying by at this point! I feel...relieved, happy, excited, refreshed, and also like I am going to cry!

I wrote a note on my website to inform my customers of the change. Lots of them are now personal friends, so I felt the need to explain.

I can't believe how much my life is changing right now!

Thank you to my friends and family who helped me with this choice. I can't tell you how much your support means to me. I always need it, and it always steers me in the right direction...
Oh, my GA ladies...hope you got the news about our Ladies' Night! Monday, 7pm, at Sheba in Atlanta. I hope you guys can all make it! If I have sawdust in my hair, just ignore it. :)

I hate how it won't let you edit your comments! (I had a few typo's so I deleted my 1st comment. LOL)

OMG girl you are crazy! LOL I can't believe how busy you have been! So much to do and only 2wks to go!!! YAY! So awesome!

You are so right, your camera can go anywhere with you and you can always rent a small space if you do not have enough room in your house for all of your equipment. I cannot wait to see the photo's you will take of Charlie! I know they are going to be stunning!

Happy times and you know I am living vicariously through you right? LOL How much longer do I have to wait? LOL

Wow! What a tough decision...but I'm glad you're ready. You'll be so blessed to have that time with Charlie. Can't wait till you're in ET.

What a beautiful space. I'm so sorry that you had to close it but as long as you can still take pictures, I'm happy. I can't wait to be a customer for that first family portrait :)!
