Well, hi! Admittedly….I’m a little behind on my blogging. The wedding I’m going to post next will have snow in the images…. It’s all for a good reason though! I’ve spent the first quarter of the year being very present with my kids, my family, and my man. Self-care and working behind the scenes has been top priority for me! In the last few months I’ve photographed lots of clients, hosted a Business Basics workshop, traveled to Hawaii, and worked hard on learning to relax. I might be a recovering workaholic…. If you follow me on instagram https://www.instagram.com/haleyshandrophoto/ you’ve been able to see some of the fun that’s going on in my life! Any creatives out there who haven’t read Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic should really check it out. (That’s right, I even made time to read a real book!)
Before I get back into blogging regular work I want to share a couple of photos from my recent family trip to Hawaii. My mom is getting married this year and I’ve taken on the role of planning her wedding! I have a new perspective on what my brides go through these days to plan their perfect day – there are a LOT of factors to consider, wedding vendors to hire, itineraries to plan etc etc…..personally I can’t wait for the food tasting 😉 For spring break I traveled to Maui with my mom and my two beautiful children. Not for work, not for clients, just for relaxing before heading into another busy summer. I took the opportunity to do some family portraits, mostly of my mom and the kids, and then taught her how to use my camera so I could be in a few!
Stay tuned in the next little while while I catch up on posting some of my favourite images from shoots over the past few months!
