Happy Fall Y'all
It's been a while since I posted, I thought the only thing I had to post about was sessions and photo tips, but recently read about how even regular life stuff can be a blog post, so figured I'd give it a try.
Things have been quiet around here lately, which I was keeping on the down low, but as I've already posted about it on our social media, I might as well talk about it here too. Not long after starting our maternity model call I found I was pregnant, it wasn't exactly planned, but it is what it is. I finished up two maternity sessions and a newborn session for our model call, then was forced to cancel everything after June because I was all day morning sick, and not just a little sick, I was couldn't get off the couch, was hungry but couldn't eat anything because everything made me sick, and had an aversion to almost everything. This went on from June through August, it was a very miserable summer for me in that aspect. Thank goodness when I got to the 2nd trimester the sick eased up and I have been able to eat food again, though still am avoiding things like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (the peanutbutter churns my stomach), and anything really sweet is too much for me. (I want to eat apples but get through maybe half an apple before the sweetness makes me shudder, and I was a daily tea drinker, but haven't been able to drink tea in months.)
Besides that, things have gotten a little crazy around the house. My son, who is 6 now, asked us if he could move his room to the basement. This is partially because of the new baby, and also because he lacks any privacy at all when it comes to keeping his building creations safe from his sister. He loves to build, whether it's with magnet-tiles, legos, knex, or something else, and it never fails that he leaves something setup in his room only to come home and discover she has snuck into his room while he was at school and messed with it or knocked it down. This was especially a problem over the summer while he did 3 weeks of summer classes, and was what lead him to ask for the move. As I type this, the contractor is finishing up the final touches of what used to be our office. We replaced a drop ceiling with a regular ceiling, my husband (who used to be an electrician) redid some wiring to add a proper ceiling light/fan combo, we took away the door between the studio and office to create a closet, and had the window replaced for something that can be used in case of emergency.
Now you may be asking, where did the office move to? Well.. my studio is now partially an office, partially my studio stuff, and all full of baby stuff that we brought down from the attic back in the beginning when I could help move everything, which will move into my son's room as a nursery when he moves downstairs. Once that moves out, I hope to find a happy medium between a small studio space and the office, but as I already did a lot of sessions on location, it would just be the setups I did for holidays that would be impacted, so will be like before we moved when I didn't have studio space at all.
On a more fun note, with my son in 1st grade full day now, I've been really trying to do tot school at home with my daughter to prep her for Kindergarten next year. I have been keeping seeing people and going to public places to a minimum, so most of it's been at home, with a nature walk here, or a visit to a garden center there.
We did also get to continue our tradition of heading to Solebury Orchards for our annual apple picking, where we got honey crisp (I still have a couple stashed in my fridge to toss into recipes), pixie crunch, and since the pixies were a bit too sweet for me, I grabbed a couple crimson crisps. In the several years we have gone apple picking, this was the first time I ate an apple fresh off the tree that had been warmed by the sun, it was very unique but super delicious!
Overall it's been a busy, crazy, but very fun fall!
