Out of commission

March 25, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

LIFE!  Oh man, what can I say.  There are so many things in this world that are put into perspective so quickly when life throws surprises your way.  I love what I do and I love that I have the support system in place to allow me to do what I love.  BUT sometimes life get's in the way and you have to take a step back.  

The hardest part of running a photography business is when you are the PRIMARY photographer for your company and you have to have down time for your health.  Unfortunately, I will be facing that time for about 6 weeks starting in July.  I will be having surgery.  

Part of my art is putting it all out there.  Well, to be an open book I have to put myself out there knowing that some may think it's not something for the intraweb.  BUT, most of you reading this know me pretty personally. I suffer from PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome); Endometriosis, and fibroids.  There is a constant pain that has put me in the hospital on 5 occasions, caused me to have trouble getting pregnant as well as cause multiple surgeries to reduce pain and possibility of internal bleeding. This will be my 5th surgery because of these issues but this will solve 80% of them.  A hysterectomy.

I am 36 (about to be 37) and will be having this surgery.  I have two children (thankfully) and am ready to have a better life.  WITH THAT BEING SAID... That means I will be out of commission for 6 weeks to recover.  July and part of August, I will not be able to do photography.  This won't be your typical surgery that is done via laparoscopy; I will be having another C-Section.  I was hoping to never experience that pain again... a VERTICAL C-section that is from my belly button down.  ***Here's to hoping he'll take out some belly chub while he's at it.***  

Anyhow, I hope you understand and will keep me on your list for future bookings. I WILL have a list of referrals to send you if you are in need of amazing photographers during this time.  I have an AMAZING group of people in my life who carry an amazing talent behind the camera.  Please feel free to email me for referrals or just to talk. I'm sure I'll be knitting a lot during this time and online BORED and re-editing things from before. I AM available for any and all bookings for April, May and part of June!!!  Don't hesitate to message or email me as I need all the bookings I can get to pay for this AMAZING (sarcasm) surgery.  

Peace, Love, Happiness and Health!  

-Marie
