Before Elijah was born I thought I would have SO many opportunities to get great photos of him.....then he was born and I realized how wrong I was. It's hard enough just being mom... but being mom and photographer at the same time is tough and exhausting! It's so much easier photographing my clients. I'm such a perfectionist but I've had to come to the realization that I don't need "perfect" pictures all the time (and honestly I don't think I've ever taken a "perfect" picture) as long as I can just capture the moments no matter what the photo looks like - imperfectly perfect photos. So I take tons of imperfect photos almost every day and then some days I get lucky enough that they're not as imperfect as most. I am, however, looking forward to getting someone else to take our photos one day so I can just be mom and not the photographer too.
