The double in my life

Thanks for all the sweet comments and messages to my inbox about the decision to be with my kiddos on the weekends. Don't worry I still will offer holiday sessions on the weekends. (just maybe not as many in the past.)

Those of you who know me and know me well know that my favorite place in the world is pretty much the beach. The area of 30A in Florida to be exact. I just can't get enough of it.

Here is a few pics of the double in my life while we were at the beach last week!

New Hours

When I started Double Takes Photography it was to be a part time hobby to help pay for extras for my family. I was a stay at home mom and it was a great way for me to be able to help bring in an income and be with my girls too.

As time has gone on Double Takes has taken off in a way I could NEVER imagine. It is beyond my wildest dreams! It has now become a 40-60 hour a week job. I am sooo very blessed by all the customers who have supported my dream.

This summer my heart has broken over and over as I have had my six year olds numerous times ask to play a game, watch a movie with them, go play outside with them, and in the same breath say or do you have to edit? As a most of my customers are moms I hope you can understand the direction I am taking Double Takes. I want to work as much as I can while my kiddos are in school and actually enjoy every second with them that I can outside of school.

After much agonizing I have decided I will no longer taking appointments on the weekends. I will be having a set schedule at the beginning of each month to limit the amount of shoots I will be taking each week. I will still do early morning shoots and evening shoots to accomodate parents that need to head to work or leave work a tad early to do a shoot. For holiday shoots I will do a limited amount of weekend shoots.

I hope that you can all understand and that I can continue to take pictures of your beautiful children.
