Being a photographer and business owner gets very busy and sometimes hectic , every now and then I peel myself away from my desk chair and take a break. Many people think photographers have loads of free time when they aren't out working photoshoots, but the reality is that for every one hour shooting photos, there is 3-4 hours post processing time(sometimes more). I am very meticulous about my edits and my husband even tells me sometimes I edit down to splitting pixels (lol) .I take great pride in my work and want it to be absolutely perfect. Many times people ask me "How do you do it all?" , and honestly its because how much i love what i do and who I am doing it for. Ive been known to skip meals, and stay up all night editing, because when you are your own boss, you are the MOST critical. Now that you have a little insight into my world, here is who keeps me motivated. My daughter Lily Bay , she just turned one this passed April and she is my inspiration. She reminds me everyday of who I am doing this for, I am working so hard now to grow our family business so one day she can look at me and say, my mom and dad did it! They created a business from the ground up and I want to be just like them!
