Had to slow way down the last few months. My health just went to crap and have been dealing with a lot of pain. It’s been hard but still pushing foreword through it all. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and finally officially diagnosed with Raynaud’s disease. Waiting to see a rheumatologist now as they suspect another autoimmune disease such as lupus or another connective tissue disease. In the last month I have dropped down to 95lbs and have just lost a lot of muscle. My body also cant regulate its temperature properly which makes things hard on me living in Colorado. Started thyroid meds a few weeks ago so can’t tell if it’s helping yet. It’s hard to slow down when there is just so much I want to do. I have to remind myself I can’t do it all anymore. In light of it all I’m still pushing to do what I love. Some days are just harder than others. It’s a lot of work but nothing makes me happier than having my studio. It’s still a work in progress but it’s mine! Can’t wait to start feeling better and take it all on again! #photography#studiophotography#photographer#photoshoot#portraitphotography#hashimotos#healthfirst#business#studio#sickandtiredofbeingsickandtired
Christmas season is HARD!!!! We want it to be full of happiness and fun but somehow that stuff gets lost in the hustle. It gets taken over by stress and pressure and just feeling overwhelmed. I am not gonna lie, I was in a grinch kind of funk today. I am not now, but most of today was a rough one. I hope tomorrow we can all just let things roll, be happy in the season and be forgiving to the people around us. And most of all give yourself a break. I don’t think I am the only one in this boat right now, so together let’s start fresh tomorrow! AND..... here is a little first view from my new studio ♥️ That is something to be happy about!!
Been learning so many new editing techniques that I keep going back to re-edit photos that I’ve already worked on and I thought we’re ready for publishing but really weren’t 🙂🙃 Thanks @solsticeretouch & @theportraitmasters for the amazing “Retouching Series” I can definitely see a HUGE improvement on my flow and editing 😭🙌🏻 Photographer/Editor: @blankalealphotography
