As much as I love photographing weddings, I’m taking some time off to focus more on my family. I have been making decisions with my head and not my heart for so long, telling myself it was OK to have two jobs, and put work first. When I finally decided to take a break from shooting, I felt relieved. It’s hard to spend time with your family when you work long weekends, shooting weddings, editing, updating the website, on top of working full time with long a commute, it became overwhelming. The stress was causing me physical pain, and my family was always getting the leftovers.
I decided to adopt a rescue cat last August, and I feel a hundred times happier now, and closer to my husband. Little Domino has helped us bond as a couple and demonstrate just how much love we can give. Having Domino has changed my life and circumstances for the better. I don’t know how I can spend my weekends anywhere but with my family and my kitty. I guess it kind of makes me a crazy cat mom, but that’s OK. I am very willing to give up some material things and little luxuries for things that enrich my life, like quality family time, physical wellness, and getting enough sleep, ha!
If you are a cat enthusiast, follow me on Instagram. I am constantly sharing moments with my cat and husband 🙂
Not a goodbye forever, just an until we meet again.
