the perfect time...

Is there such a thing as 'the perfect time'? If you're anything like me, your down time is spent contemplating some day in the (hopefully not distant) future when you'll have more money and more time to do what you've always wanted to do, that you'll weigh less than you do right now, that your kids will be better behaved and that you'll be more organized.

I began thinking about this idea of 'the perfect time' while perusing the blog of a photographer in Australia who just had her family's portraits taken by one of my favorite photographers: Blue Lily. She posed the question: what is stopping you from having your family's portraits taken? Do you want to lose weight? Do you not have time? Is money an issue?

It is true that custom photography is a luxury but it is worth it! And I echo Alinta and promise you that the memories captured will be worth so much more than the money you pay for them. My desire has always been to offer candid, beautiful, moving, personal moments without-as my canvas company recently stated- overcharging. I hope that you won't continue to wait, to put it off any longer. Children grow up so fast, situations change and I know that there will never be 'the perfect time' for photography or anything else for that matter. Stop waiting, start doing.

A recent photo from our trip up North. I will be taking my own advice and booking a session soon. :)
