it's been a month!

Photobucket

wow... it really has been a month since I last was at this space...
an entire month went by...
This month is the busiest month for our studio and I just could not even get close to this space which I love so much...
any spare moment I had I just wanted to be with my family!
hugging my girls, laughing!
I cannot even put into words the feeling I have for how amazing our season was... I get the chills just thinking about it!
Yes, we're still slammed but I am feeling a little lighter...
I cannot even count how many portrait sessions and even 3 weddings we did...
I'm pretty sure there was at least one shoot a day...
It was amazing...
I walked, I ran, I hiked up hills, I ran up steps, down steps, I carried so many newborns, I hushed babies to sleep, I was peed on, I wiped children's noses, I wiped sand from eyes, I kissed boo boos, pretended I was a monkey, a chicken, a bird, a butterfly, and a moose!
I sang, I clapped, I blew kisses
I got stepped on by the sharpest stilletto heel I'm pretty sure they make and still have the bruise, I helped cut wedding cakes, I fixed bouquets, I held lip sticks, I threw my keys to a valet while my car stalled to chase down a bride, I got bit by a dog, I got kissed by a child, I got so many hugs, I parked in so many crazy places, I witnessed a limo accident, I twirled, I was up to my knees in the gulf in my jeans and it felt so good, I ruined my favorite pair of boots and it was so worth it for "the shot,"
I laughed so hard that my cheeks hurt!
all of this while my family was at my side... there for me... doing this with my husband is a dream come true!
being able to be there for my girls...
I LOVE MY JOB!!!!!!!
