Worth it All

Have you ever had that small voice in your head that just says, "THIS is why you do what you do?"

Maybe I'm the only crazy one that "hears" that from time to time...

I don't doubt being Mom and doing the "mom" things...and I'm reminded constantly of this with that voice when I watch my girls make choices of which I am so proud & grateful...

Photography on the other hand...I'll be honest...I wonder...

there are sooo many photographers out there...in our area...I'm just a small speck on the map...do I even make a difference?  is it worth it?

And then I meet up with the families...

We talk and interact, I joke with their kids, I hug and laugh and sometimes even cry...

The next thing I know, it's been 3 years and their son is graduating and heading off to college and my heart is riding the roller coaster along with "mom"...because we've invested just a bit into each other...

It's not really more than about 30-45 minutes for a session...it's a brief moment of time...
but, in that moment, 
hearts connect and friendships form...
and I find myself "SEEing" with a different set of eyes...

when it's all said and done, 
whether everyone thinks they look fantastic in a picture or not...
the truth is, 
a memory has been made..
time has been spent that otherwise might have been in front of a TV or cleaning house...
but instead, 
hands were held, 
hugs were given, 
laughs were heard...

THIS is why I do what I do...

relationships are worth the effort!!!
