I thought I'd share some pictures of us today with you.. This is what we look like in the evening - mainly just tired!

So even though I've been posting a few posts - I haven't really had time to be here recently. Life at the moment is busy - wonderful - but busy. When you run a company with each other it sometimes gets complicated. We've had so many wonderful projects to work on this year it really feels like our companies had to grow and change. This is as well as me starting up my own little photography business - so it's been tricky keeping up with it all and finding time for anything let alone us.

Last week was a challenge - the worst thing that can happen if your self employed is to get sick - and even worse us both getting sick! Even though we didn't take a day off you just can't work in the same way you normally do - my brain just wouldn't work - this means we've got behind on deadlines and last week was an essential week to catch up so therefor a very stressful week!

This year has really been a year where I've had to step up and start growing. Not only in photography but also in day to day life of our little company from the basics of working with clients and projects - pushing myself with graphic design and website design. Somedays I struggle other days I'm on cloud nine and feeling great. I'm really proud of the work I've been doing - but the amazing thing about this industry is that you can only keep on learning and getting better.

I know this is a random post - but today I'm feeling a bit reflective. If you are starting your own company or are already self employed - theses posts here are always a great read.. I think it's nice to know others are trying to find a balance and going through the same things as you...


Hope everyones having a good week - I wrote most of this on Monday which was a lot greyer and colder than it is now - am I the only one who's moods effected by the weather! But thought I should post it anyways... Off to celebrate the sunshine with a BBQ at a friends.. who else is doing the same!

Will be back tomorrow with some more of this... well if I have time!

  3. You are both so talented and I am really happy to hear that you are keeping busy :)

    Although our shop is still quite small it is not always easy keeping up with everything. It is really nice to hear some reflections from others.

    Hope you have had some time to enjoy the sunshine this week. Good luck with everything to both of you.

  4. I think its good to stop and reflect sometimes and I really enjoyed reading you're post today. The photographs are so personal so thank you for sharing.
