Why i take a month off at Christmas….

From the end of Nov usually, right through to the middle of January I usually take time off… This may seem odd to most but as a small business owner for me its the perfect time to rest and regroup for the new year ahead.  I adore my client’s and i truly feel so blessed to do newborn baby and cake smash photography as a full-time career but my job is not a conventual 9-5 job.

There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes in a career such as mine from selecting carefully beautiful props and backgrounds for your session to my commitment to ongoing training, editing, and marketing it is all go all the time and I work most days from 9 am up till the small hours of the morning.. in what spare time I do have I dedicate it to The butterfly Wishes network and Remember my baby so I am constantly all go … and I wouldn’t change it  for all the tea in china.

I tend to finish up my Christmas mini sessions during the October break so that all my editing is completed and orders have been processed so that my clients are able to buy their loved ones gifts and this enables me this little bit of time to take off and spend with my own family.

I am very close with my brother’s and parent’s, My husband and I have many nieces and nephews, a close friend circle and for us, we enjoy our family traditions from taking the kids to see Santa at dobbies, A Christmas Panto, going to the Edinburgh Christmas market, putting up the tree with a bottle of whiskey and laughing at my mum correcting it the next day hehe… to Christmas eve mass.  For hubby and me it is the perfect time of year to stop and relax a little, these memories are so important to us and something we truly treasure.

Id love to know what you and your family traditions are?

While I am thinking about Christmas my lovely friend Hannah from Cherish Forever Photography who is an amazing newborn and baby photographer in Wirral has come up with her list of top 10 Christmas presents and the list is soooooo good!! be sure to check it out.  I always struggle with ideas so its fab to have some amazing new ideas including Wirral Photography Vouchers for her services <3 Thanks, Hannah! xoxo
