life lately... my biznass.

so i keep talking about how i've been super busy lately which is all just wonderful to hear i'm sure because hey, we're all busy right?  but i thought i'd share what's been keeping me occupied late at night on all those evenings i don't get to post on this here blog.  i like to call it "my other life."  actually i've never called it that but maybe i'll start.  basically when i'm not blogging i'm editing photos.   i don't often share my work on here but i figured the occasional photo dump is well within my right, right?

so yeah, in case i haven't dropped enough hints from time to time, i do run a little photography business on the side which takes up lots of those precious p-ray naptime & post-bedtime hours... but it's totally worth it.  i love what i do.  it kinda provides this weird high since i still get nervous butterflies before every session {seriously, i do... WHEN will that go away??} but then once the session starts it's like the camera takes over.  i get to become this person on the other side of the lens who is in control & knows what she's talking about.  and even when i don't, i've learned to fake it & somehow, miraculously, things have worked out so far.

i can see that i've come a long way in my photography & yet there is so much further i want to go.  there are so many amazing photographers that i look up to & if i spend too much time on their blogs i start to get all pouty about not being there yet.  but there's this quote i saw on pinterest once that said something like "the only photographer you should ever compare yourself to is the one you used to be."  and that is so true.  i've seen my stuff evolve quite a bit over time & it's exciting.  i know that if i keep practicing & searching for inspiration to bring into my own images & working on my editing technique & workflow that i can go as far as i want.  it will just take lots & lots of work.

so anywho, here are a few of my favorite images from some of my sessions the last few months.  just thought i'd share what i've been up to.  and in case you're interested?  here are some more deets about my biz:


check 'em out.

  2. So fun! Yes, I've found myself wondering sometimes what the heck you do when you stay up so late and I have to remind myself, "Duh, Lindsey. She runs a freakin' business!" :)

  3. i love your gorgeous photos! and as i've cruised your blog over the past year, you have inspired me so much. thank you for that quote because i get so pouty, frustrated and defeated thinking i can make a little side business out of something i love to do after looking at other peoples work. i just think, there is no way i will ever get to that point. ever. unless i had a gazillion dollars to "teach" me how to do it. your pics are amazing and it help my motivation going in the right direction...especially after that quote. thank you :)

  8. Beautiful. This is so my life too. Only I get to add in 40+ hours a week working into editing, sessions, and time with Hubs/toddler. It's so worth it though which is why I (and you ) do it. You photos are beautiful!

  9. I haven't commented in awhile, but I've been keeping up with you :) Mainly b/c we're usually doing the same sort of thing...around the same sort of timeline, lol...except for your latest pregnancy, still not ready for #2, lol. I have my latest maternity shoot on my blog and the Color Run, which I think you'll find...well colorful :) I've got mad <3 for a goodlifeblog :)

  14. You have a beautiful style! I really love all of these. You're super talented. How do you find the time to do the actual shooting? Do you have childcare in the evenings a lot or is your hubby home?
