January is my favorite time of year. It feels like a clean slate and the perfect time to make big changes that will bring our family closer to our goals. And we’ve already decided on one big change for 2016:
We are putting Light Wings Photography on hold and won’t be scheduling any photo sessions for a bit.
I don’t even know if there is a way for me to adequately convey how much we’ve struggled with this decision. But after more than a year filled with reflection and long talks, I’ve found that it’s still in my heart to step back. I could try to explain the reasons why, but I guarantee it would end up being more of a novel than a blog post. So, I will just simply say that running a small photography business is not a good fit for our family at this moment.
Our hope is to open LWP again when the time is right for us, be that 6 months from now or 3 years from now. While we take this time to figure all of that out, I will continue to post here and on my social media accounts about sessions from this year that I loved, creative projects I have planned for next year, as well as fill your feed with photos of my gorgeous daughter.
If you were hoping to book a session with me next year, feel free to shoot me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org will still be up and running). I will either let you know if I’m ready to start taking sessions again or I’ll refer you to one of the amazing local photographers in the area that I love and admire.
And to every single client I’ve had in the 6 1/2 years since I did my first photo session….thank you. It has been a pleasure to watch your families grow through my camera lens.
Much love and happiness to all of you in the new year.
