Missing you friends...

Geesh.
I MISS you my bloggy friends. 
I went from being able to do a post just about every day, keep up & chat w/ all my favorite blogs... TO... maybe post twice a week, if I'm lucky. Where the heck have I been? Well being a mommy, trying to be a great mommy, AND getting my Melanie Ann Photography up & running. It's been a lot of work, but SO worth it! I am loving every single crazy wonderful second of it! Things will all even out here soon, I'll get in a groove w/ my workflow & make this ALL work... I keep on telling myself this. Lol) If I haven't been over to say hi, I will be soon, I promise. Have I told ya'll I miss the crap-o-la out of ya?! I do! Anywhoo.. you know I couldn't end a post w/ out some pictures of my Happy Jax Boy. He is the sunshine I always see when I've had one of "those" days. It's impossible not to be madly inlove w/ that boy. I'll admit I have slightly fallen out of love for about 5-6 minutes after he decided to write all over our newly painted walls w/ my black eyeliner. Yep! We'll save that for next week)
OH! Btw,
PLEASE click here & like my new MAP (Melanie Ann Photography) FB page.
I would be SO happy!

Jax, daddy, & mama(& of course, Lightning McQeen)

Good to have you back! Hope it all evens out soon. Balance is what you should strive for...lovely shots.

Bravo to you Mama! I just started my own photography business too this summer. I can't believe it took me this long to figure out to do this! Here's to following your bliss.

So cute- but so loving that last one. Good for you with the biz- it certainly is a ton of work. Which is why I am second guessing the whole shebang. I may do pics for friends- but completely doing the biz thing has lost it appeal for me. Maybe I am just in a weird place- but I may never go pro when it comes to portraits. Maybe I will stick to prints.

Miss you too girl! I laughed out loud at Jax coloring on the walls. Such a mischievous little one he is. Definitely "liked" your FB page. So proud of you girl!

The bokeh on the first couple is gorgeous. I still have yet to master this on purpose.

Ahh Mel, I hear you on trying to find time to do everything... starting up a photog business is TOUGH! I hope you can find balance and still enjoy mommyhood, photography, and life in general.. I know you will!! xoxo

I feel so out of the loop in blog land as well! I just haven't had time this whole week to sit down and answer emails and blog stalk. But of course, you're the FIRST blog I came to now that I do have a little bit of time to read blogs ;) Miss you, Mel! But you are doing the best thing for your family. Taking care of precious Jax and starting up your photog biz! And it's going to take off and be SO SUCCESSFUL! You are so talented, momma! I can't wait to see how things turn out for you :) Love you, Mel!
