We shared this blog post on our Newborn Goodness Blog here, but after reading this heartfelt article yesterday we knew we had to share on our here as well.
Just like Amy…we had our wakeup call!! This hit us on January 11th, 2012 of this year – our son’s 5th birthday. Not sure what sparked it (maybe my baby not being such a baby anymore) but just like Amy…when we looked in the mirror – the image we saw back wasn’t what it was five years ago when we began this journey. We made a pact to ourselves and family..it was time for change and we did just that! We just passed the 4 month mark of our personal journey…and we are seeing the changes daily. We should share a before and after, but we will save that for another day!!
- Our first goal was to take more pictures of our own kids!! We spend our days capturing beautiful images for our clients and when the weekend comes; the camera never leaves the camera bag. So we became Instagram Savvy….and now everywhere our phone goes so does our camera! Its about being there…in the moment; capturing them because they are fleeting. The image doesn’t have to be technically perfect…they are meant to tell our story. For us…Instagram has been the answer. While we still love using our DSLR for portraits of the kids for canvases, we have grown to love all the little things we would have missed before using our 3MP camera.
- Goal two….get healthy. Late nights spent editing..our health has taken a back seat. So every morning; well almost every morning (6 days a week) at 5am since early January we pull ourself out of bed and head to the gym. In case you are wondering where our Motivation Monday’s came from…well there you have it – its our 5am “help us get out the door” motivation. If you want to keep up with our 5am fun be sure to
