Your Life in your Photography Business

Bloggers say Nay Nay.

Everything I read tells me how I am not supposed to include my personal life into my business blog posts. The posts should be strictly photography related on all fronts.

My life isn’t just photography.

…of weddings, events, portraits, and boudoir.

I have a passion for photography. I also have a passion for these two crazies I am raising whom I refer to as my #AwesomeChaos. Why can’t I include them? What the heck else am I supposed to talk about on days that don’t include lens flare and sunshine? Days where I woke up, couldn’t find my sons shoes, spilled chicken salad inside my purse, and got to work 32 minutes late….only to find the chicken salad that I had spilled inside my purse has drenched a rotten banana, from what appears to be, 5 months ago. (I shall downsize my purse options from here.)





That’s my life. I’m a single mom running around with the #AwesomeChaos. I work full-time, run my photography business, am going to school for my masters, AND provide care, concern, and crazy to my #AwesomeChaos.

My Life lens would show you this.

With that being said, let’s talk about the #AwesomeChaos.

Chaotic Awesomeness Number 1 is six years old. – She is also my posing princess, continually supplying me with ideas for portraits.


Chaotic Awesomeness Number 2 is three years old. – He’s calm, collected, and so sweet… until you take his photo.  Then this happens…


Both supply an endless amount of smiles, laughter, and warmth sprinkled with a tantrum over whose frozen banana is whose.

How about this: Powers That Be Of Blogs…

How about I’m thinking outside the box and you’re wrong?

So from now on. You’ll enjoy my professional photography, smashed into the tab Barely A Blog, with my #AwesomeChaos.

I hope you enjoy my photography and my days filled with crazy as much as I do.
