It sure has been quite over here at Rae of Light Photography, but that is pretty typical for this time of year. The weather here in the Austin area has been so up and down lately. Most days are cold and wet in January and February, and who wants to be out in that trying to photograph a session? Not I said the fly! I think we, my family and the rest of the Austin area, are all ready for Springtime; no more of this weekly freezing weather thing we’ve been having for the last month or so.
Bring on the bluebonnets! Bring on the warm weather! Can I hear an “amen?”
Nonetheless, it is actually beneficial for me to have things slow down a bit this time of year as far as sessions go. It’s gives a time to reflect about the direction I want my business to go, get caught up on all things financial and tax related for Rae of Light, and helps me to regroup mentally and become inspired again.
A quick update for those of who are interested. Coming up in March, sessions are starting to get booked and my schedule is getting quite full, so if you are wanting to get a session done in March (or April for that matter), don’t delay! Contact me soon. I’ve had a tremendous amount of inquires about Spring Break week, which is March 10th through the 14th. <—-which is also SXSW time too. Also something to keep in mind is that bluebonnet season is coming up and I know many of you like to keep the tradition of getting your photos taken each in year with our beautiful State flower. I’m keeping my eye out for some new fields and also bookmarking this fabulous site as well. These sessions will most likely happen towards the end of the month of March, possibly early weeks of April depending on what comes up this year. Let me know if you are interested in pricing for bluebonnet mini sessions.
Lastly, totally unrelated to business…. look at this sweet freckle face. (This photo is a benefit of being an early riser. My son would probably be completely embarrassed that I am posting a photo of him sleeping).
How is it possible that we are discussing electives, core classes, and clubs already? I look at this face and still see the little baby with the jaw line like my Daddy’s and the little button nose that I used to push and say “beep.” He will be 11 years old in a few months and by next Fall he will be a 6th grader. Make it stop! Slow down. He might be ready, but I know I am not.
