It’s been quite sometime since I posted on here. Blogging is and has never really been my thing. However I figured it was time to try my hardest to be better at it. I have a really bad habit of setting goals for my business and never following through with them. One thing that I do excel in is talking and well procrastination. So for those of you who know me, know that I could talk robber out of robbing a bank just because he would probably get so sick of listening to me yammer on that it would be one of those “if you stop talking for 5 seconds, I will leave”. Hey what can you do some are amazing at being business owners, some are not. Business is far from my forte but I would love to push pass my insecurities and really push my business to be all that it can be.
Okay so lets back track. It has been over a year since I posted, which is super embarrassing. Now don’t get me wrong I have been busy, probably way busier than I have been in a long time not only photography wise but also in my personal life as well so where to begin….
Well I am now a mother of three. Yep count em 1-2-3 tiny humans that I am required to keep alive everyday. So lets just say sleep is very limited so in my defense, blogging has not been in the cards.

I am now the proud owner of a Registered Nursing license (I say owner because well lets just say I will be forever paying student loans until I no longer walk this earth, so yes I own that bad boy, well partially). I started my nursing career as Neuro/ Vascular Surgery nurse but now have ventured off to the dark, scary, depths that is the Emergency Department. It was bitter sweet but I think its going to be a great change for me. I am so excited to see where this career path will take me.
It feels like I will be a forever student because I am currently working on my Bachelors Degree in Nursing at Emmanuel College in Boston, MA. I hope to graduate with that degree by this time next year. Then one day hope to attend school to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.
Lets see what else is there, oh yeah I opened up my very first studio in downtown New Bedford, MA in May of last year. Although it still needs some work, I love the joy it has brought to me and my clients. Being able to have my very own place has really brought back my joy of photography.
Last year was a tough one, pregnancy was not nice to me this time around all on top of starting a very demanding career as a nurse. I unfortunately really had to take a step away from photography last year which is something I promised myself the beginning of 2018 I would not do. After taking on the studio I promised myself that this would be my year, 2018 was going to be one for the books. Obviously life happens and 2018 was an amazing year but just for other reasons. I gave birth to a perfect 7lb 15oz little boy named Oliver Henry, which has brought me so much joy and a whole lot less sleep. I wouldn’t change last year for the world.
So even though we are already half way through the year, that is perfectly okay. Things take time. Rome was not built in a day and I need to not be so tough on myself. I look forward to the rest of this year and all of the clients I have worked with thus far and will continue to work with for the rest of the year. Please keep a close eye out for any and all sessions that I will be doing my best to publish. Be prepared though because I have been a busy lady and have some amazing sessions to share! 🙂
