A note from Erika | personal

 photo weed.jpg I need a clone, HELP! This is the time of the year when my life is nothing but chaotic. I struggle to find that balance between family and business. Now that we are losing daylight sooner and weekday evening sessions for families are just about impossible, I have open up my weekends to shoot. That's all I'll be doing is shooting and spending the rest with my family. I will not be editing or answering emails, texts or phone calls that have to deal with my photography business. Although, it will be very hard for me because I don't like looking at my phone showing me I have messages. I like my icons to have nothing on!!! I find myself taking that call while we are in a store at 7pm on a Saturday evening and my husband just shakes his head. He has to remind me that it is the weekend and it's family time, all business calls/emails/texts can wait till Monday. So here is my schedule to contact me Monday through Friday 9am till 5pm. Please contact me at one location. If you contact me on FB and don't hear from me by end of night don't text or email. I got it, I just haven't had time to answer back. It takes time to answer all emails, texts, phones calls and some days I have over 20+ emails. This does take time away from editing and on those days when I'm in an editing crunch I will not be answering any emails, texts, phone calls. This has been one of my busiest years with weddings and my senior photography has doubled. There is only one me with two hands trying to accomplish everything. If only I had a clone, life would be a little! Thank you for your patience. Erika
