Photography

I've recently been telling Scott that I have really been wanting and needing to do something fun. He asked me what I meant and I told him I wasn't sure? Maybe a date night or a girls night. I never, ever do anything like that and after a while you just need it, you know? Fast forward to this past weekend. I did some Halloween mini photo sessions for some kids in my neighborhood. It's the first time I've ever taken photos without Scott there with me. I take photos of my own kids all the time but I've always been nervous to do it for other people for some reason. I left Scott to hang with the boys, grabbed a bunch of pumpkins and got all set up to take some cute Halloween pics.
I didn't even think taking photos would fulfill that need for something fun for me, but it did. It was a nice escape from my every day to do something different and something that I really enjoy. I know I take a lot of photos of my own children, and they are my favorite people to take photos of, but it's different when you're taking photos for others. I had so much fun doing it that it makes me want to do it more often! I've always said that photography is my favorite hobby. It has brought me a lot of joy over the years. This weekend, I learned that it can also be a stress reliever. It was nice. And kids in their Halloween costumes are just adorable. So there's that as well.
