I’ve been mostly hiding for most of the Fall, particularly from the blog.
It wasn’t on purpose. I just re-did my site in September and all of a sudden, I didn’t know how to continue best contributing to the blog.
The nostril and septum and ear cartilage piercings came out in late October. A semi-spontaneous decision, I haven’t looked back on it. I’m developing my Nannie’s jowls and the look didn’t go with the edgy piercing look, I didn’t think, after seeing myself in several zoom calls. I like aging and it’s nice to have a fresh look again.
Photo-business-wise, it’s been a moderately busy Fall, which I am thankful for. I am trying to not give into gear acquisition syndrome at the moment– Jared is right– it means that I need to take more pictures. I need to embrace taking pictures of the day-to-day happenings of our house, no matter how mundane they may seem at the time. 20 years from now, I will be grateful to have the photos.
The truth of it is that I have been depressed, something that isn’t out of the ordinary. I’m on the upside of it now, which is why I can write about it again.
I’ve been scattered, with my attention all over the place. This fall, I looked at three distinctly different career options. All the while, I was actively working to up my photo game. Hopefully, now that my attention span is coming back, I can work in a more focused manner on growing my photo business.
I’ve got several weddings to get up on the blog and a couple of sessions, as well, so look for those in coming weeks.
