Photography Lately

This blog was founded on the idea that as a professional photographer I have many images to share that are photographed about healthy lifestyle topics inspired by my day to day life.  I have written about recipes, food, weekend adventures, and fitness among other things.  This blog has not only brought traffic to my images as a product, but has also been an enjoyable creative outlet for me when I am not in the studio creating new images.

Life has changed lately, and I have strayed from my clockwork post a day format.  I am 32 weeks pregnant, still working full time hours, and have to admit that I am slowing down a little.  I am not only slowing down in regularity of blog posts, but I have also slowed down in the amount of stock imagery that I produce on a day to day basis.  Client work (product photography) has become the highest priority leaving little time for the stock photography that I love so much. 

My goal is to take several months off from client work so I can focus on my new baby before coming back to the business in the fall.  So priorities have shifted, and I am beginning to look into the future with the blog.  I hope to prepare articles in advance to give me some time off when the baby arrives, and have implemented a new feature called Food Blogger Friday where I will have a weekly guest blog post in order to take some of the work off my to-do list.

So bear with me during this time of transition, and I promise to keep the healthy lifestyle articles and photography coming as frequently as I can. 

Today's post features an image taken for stock of one of my favorite pregnancy cravings - blueberries.  Normally I would have taken many images of this sweet fruit, but in my state I only got two accomplished before I just have to give in and eat them up!

  1. Thanks for linking up to Random Tuesday Thoughts Rebel - it's nice to 'meet' you. I think it's very admirable that you plan to take time off from your client list to spend time with the impending arrival of your new baby. :)

  2. I think I will have to take some time off for a new baby ... I am aiming for the traditional 3 months of maternity leave, but I am sure I will be squeezing work in here and there during that time as well ;)
