This is going to be a very difficult post to write.
Due to my back and complications with medication causing me to feel tired all the time my photography is pretty much dead. I do not have the energy required to do photo shoots anymore.
It's been a very hard loss to accept, but I have managed up until recently. A young soon-to-be-married couple contacted me a month ago about doing their wedding and I had to turn it down. I have no idea what my health will be like in 6 months and honestly as a former bride I don't want this bride-to-be to have to find another photographer because I suddenly took ill or my back went out again. Not taking that job was emotionally draining. I love doing weddings and we could have really benefited from the money.
I'm not taking jobs anymore or promoting my photography business. I feel like it is dead and buried but my husband insists it is just resting and I will get back into it someday. I wish I could be so hopeful.
I haven't shut down my sites yet but I have been thinking about it. It's hard to photograph anything when you are stuck at home because you are sick.
I miss my photography so much.
