Taking A Break

Well, last week I got all into a big promotion on my product photography, and that afternoon the tables turned for me. 

You see, we somewhat half expected to hear the news, but it's best to not get your hopes up on things to avoid disappointment later on. 

To make a long story short, we're expecting twins and I will not be taking many more product photography orders right now.  I will try to keep my shop open as best as possible, as I have already changed my shipping and ordering policy.  I don't want to let go of all the promotion I've done and close down the shop, but if the long run, if it's necessary, I guess I'll do that and work on custom orders only.

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, but I'm really excited for the new happenings in our family-and if it means putting my hobby on hold, that's okay with me too!

Congratulations! I have been trying to have children for a year and a half and I had a quite rare condition that caused problems with both my pregnancies. Luckily that condition is fixed (I have a blog that I discuss it all on: Too Beautiful for Earth) so hopefully soon I will have a healthy pregnancy. Much luck and love to you! <3

Curve balls can be tough...You gotta know how to hit 'em. You're great, and no matter how long your break, I'll be a supporter when you get back in the game!
Good luck, and keep in touch. Enjoy your family.

Congratulations. You'll still have time to take some wonderful pictures. You just won't have time to maintain your shop for now.

Best wishes to you and your family.

Double Congrats! My cousin had twins a month before I had my youngest son, and I know they can be a challenge, but just think of all the double cuddling and love you're going to get!!!

Taking care of those new babies will be so, so rewarding for you. I can't wait to see all the new photos that you will be sharing once those babies are here. Tough decision but one that you won't regret.
