Sometimes I forget to update this blog with personal stuff!
It used to be the place where I shared everyday thoughts and instagram photos, but since I don't want to inundate my brides and grooms with baby stuff, I've been posting heavily on the family blog instead.
Although, every once in awhile I feel like I should check in with a few "maternity leave" updates. (I put "maternity leave" in quotes because some days I feel like a busy working mom! Booking new clients, doing engagement sessions for next year's weddings, putting together timelines for this season, etc.)
Here are a few updates:
Life as a mama is lovely! We are blessed with an insanely good sleeper (10 hours every night!) and a good eater. If you'd like to see a glimpse into our day-to-day, check out this post.
Next: I've booked a booth at The Ottawa Wedding Show for this Fall! It's been FOREVER since I did a show, but setting up a table at Hot 899's Hide the Bride this year reminded me just how much I love talking to future clients. In between feedings, naps, and stroller walks around the neighbourhood, I'll be finding a bit of time to design some promotional material for the show (and let's face it…hunting around the basement for all of my old booth supplies!).
Next up, this is Ryan's busy time at work (quarter end, blah!), so I've been keeping myself busy by selling things on Kijiji, decluttering my cupboards, and yesterday I even went through all of my old purses. Things found along the way: some GST cheques from 2011, keys to my old house, $32 in loonies and toonies, 3 brand new sticks of deodorant, and a list of ambitions for my "future photography business." That list was a jackpot…it included things like: shoot a wedding, be featured on a wedding blog, see my name in the newspaper, have a million twitter followers, own more than one lens, and have business cards. Ha!
And my last update for today…our little baby Coop turned 3 months old today! I took some photos of him to celebrate :)
