My kid did not dry drown last night and I did eventually get a little sleep. Moment of crazy has passed.
In other news, I have a potential client looking for a maternity photo session. As I’ve mentioned before, it has been over a year since I have done a maternity session and I really don’t feel ready to start doing them again yet. I’ve been really stressed out about how to handle this. So, last night I was typing out the situation to bounce off of a group of friends I talk to online and half way through typing, it was like a light bulb went off and I got this amazing clarity on the subject.
I don’t have to do maternity photography. I do this as a hobby/job, so why should I do anything with it that is not fun for me? I have a full time job that involves it’s fair share of “daily grind” – why would I put myself through that for my “fun” job? Sure, I will do a maternity session for my long time client this spring, but that is actually starting to feel ok to me. I know them and that makes it a little easier.
But, I don’t have to do this one. And I don’t have to stress or be upset about it. I can just say no. Lessons from 3rd grade. Just say no.
