I officially started working again. It's very part time and I like it like that. I original plan was for me to start up again in January but I was just loving being at home. So we kept it low key and waited until I felt both Lewis and I where ready.
I thought I was going to need to work. Photographing and consulting give me a lot of energy, but nothing makes me feel more complete then my spending the day with my Lewis. I really just like taking care of him.
However, It felt good to get behind the lens again. It's normal. The old normal. I have not felt that in a long time. Yesterday was the first wedding I have done since having L. He did great, spent the ceremony on my back and slept though the formal shots. I am that good tired and my back is killing me. I am finding that editing is going to take much, longer then it did before as I have to get up every few min.
In San Diego I was able to photograph one of my all time favorites. Expressive, fun, totally into each other and very photogenic. It was an easy transition back.
Thank you Andy and Abby for serving the United States of America, for loving your kids and for being so beautiful! I really love you guys.
