Maybe someone needs to hear this. Maybe it's me.

I haven't posted anything in a couple weeks. This blog post is for me to vent about why, and so that I can actually have some content for my platforms.

My last shoot was my Valentine's Day mini-sessions which were a success. Since then, I haven't shot anything except for some GoPro footage of a canoe trip I took with my dad. It was lovely, but I feel like my heart needs more to shoot.

Work gets in the way. My husband and I are working hard six days a week to get out of debt, but it is leaving our souls sad and wanting.


I have one wedding booked for March and a military retirement ceremony booked for April, both of which I'm excited and grateful for. My heart longs to travel to Iceland, Alaska, Hawaii, Thailand, Canada, Greece... Anywhere. I want to be in beautiful places and see beautiful things.

On the other hand, I'm an animal lover, and I am passionate about animal rescue. There are endless horrors placed upon countless creatures at the hands of humans and someone needs to stop it. Who am I to travel to beautiful places while some innocent creature cowers in terror and pain, not knowing how it feels to experience joy or love?

I need to work hard to get out of debt so I can do the things I want. I need to work hard to save animals because they don't deserve to feel pain.

I feel like there isn't enough time to do everything that needs to be done. It's exhausting.
