There is that one tree in my neighborhood.
Every year it changes color about a month before all the other trees. Well it started two weeks ago.
That can't be. It's the middle of August.
I feel like Summer is fleeing and Autumn is going to hit hard with a bang and disappear before I can blink.
Which then causes an extreme panic to set in. My book is not done, my website is not updated, my new studio samples are not ordered, I have not done any new marketing, my charity prints are not done, my face hasn't cleared up enough to shoot my promo video, I haven't shot my own kid's photos.
That is just the list off the top of my head. That list does not include cooking, cleaning, getting my daughter through college and being a wife and mom.
Ok so I honestly stopped typing in order to breath into a paper bag.
Where was I going with this?
Oh yeah time. In about three weeks things will get crazy. After the Back to School Lull comes the Every Family for Themselves Fall Holiday Photo Card Sessions! So I have about three weeks to get my act together before everyone joins me in my madness.
I am already dreaming of a documentary style session with a chubby 6 month old taking a bath in the kitchen sink.
A ballet dancer under the stars...
of a thousand origami cranes...
of steampunk corsets with parasols....
of carnival rides with cotton candy....
rooms filled with Edison lights and boats filled with Wild Things.
My bucket list never stops growing.
I just have to find that client with the same vision that makes me forget the above panic and remember why I have the best job on the planet.
