To Good Health

June 19, 2013  •  1 Comment

I don't usually like to share a lot of personal information about myself on my business page, because, let's face it... you are here to see photos, not learn every detail about me.  But, I am going to break that rule in this blog post, because I want you to know why, even though I love being a photographer with every cell in my body, I am going to be cutting my appointments down to one per week.

After experiencing some mystery symptoms for two and a half years, I recently received a diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome.  This is not a life threatening syndrome, but if I let it get out of control, illnesses may develop, which I would absolutely love to avoid.  In order to get this syndrome under control, my doctor has ordered me to go on a low carb diet (kill me now, please!) and get lots of exercise.  With the amount of sessions that I have been taking on, I have been struggling with sticking to my diet, or making it to the gym, pretty much at all.  

So, even though I hate saying no to anyone who wants to schedule with me,  I need to be firm about getting my health under control (as well as spend some quality time with my kids, while they are still little).  I am so fortunate to have such amazingly sweet clients, and I would hate to lose a single one of you.  So... I have set up an availability calendar , on my site , that I will update as appointments are booked.  As you will see, I am currently booking into October. If you know you would like a fall or winter session, please let me know as soon as possible. I will book on a first come, first serve basis, but I will also do what I can to schedule sessions for current clients as requested. Also, please keep an eye on my Facebook page, in the fall, and again around the holidays, as I will be hosting mini sessions to accommodate as many wonderful clients as possible. 

I apologize for any inconvenience that my schedule change may cause, and I hope to be up and running at full force by the new year.  And since a photography blog without a photo, is like tennis shoes without soles, I hope you don't mind if I share a few images that I took back in April, of my outgoing, intelligent little girl.

Shannon! I didn't realize you had a blog until you posted it on FB! Your pictures are beautiful as always and Allli is adorable. I'm sorry to hear about your health. I remember you saying you we're getting tested a few months ago, so I'm glad they figured it out. We should get together soon and let the kids play!
