A facebook friend asked today “The question is how do you balance it? Business, a job and personal work? When was the last time you shot for you? Was it planned or spur of the moment?”  The short version of my answer was, I dont balance it – and when was the last time I did ANYTHING for myself???  it’s been years! I dont even know what shooting for myself means really… or what did it ever mean? What is personal work anyway? The most personal thing I can share in public right now are my children, and they are not always the responsive to my requests for photo time, in fact, I rarely do, which goes to answer the question in the first place …. I am so swamped with keeping up with work, personal photos just take a back seat, and if it weren’t for my mom wo literally lives for these photo-bites I would probably never edit them if I even shot them in the first place… which is sad, since kids, and grown up LOVE looking at albums… the kids grown up so fast that we have to look back from tune to time … anyway.. after my knoll shoot in Orange County there were cookies left over…. and of course I had to take a personal moment and photograph this, literally  sweet Sunday morning…
