        I’m feeling a little ambivalent. I looked it up.

        Having mixed feelings or contradictory ideas about something.

        Yup. That’s me about all things biz related.

        Sessions? meh

        Blogging? meh

        Editing? meh

        Improving my craft? meh

        Turns out I’m the dude from The Emoji Movie!

        I’ve embraced the feelings. I saw something on Instagram and it sounded sooo accurate I didn’t bother fact checking. This is me:

        Read through them all. You’ll feel relieved.

        So, thanks to IG and Alexis, I feel validated.

        BUT I did have the most awesome mini front porch session last week.

        After sharing our own front porch sessions on Quantico, Mom reached out me and asked me to come out to her!

        I WAS THRILLED!

        I thought this was just a “your own backyard” gig. Photogs are everywhere… right? Guess not. Just feels like it.

        It was so exciting to have someone I didn’t know reach out to me in this weird time! AND they know our neighbors… makes them really fun people.

        Plus they had a crew that was top notch – ages 2-9!

        So let me present to you… The First Christmas Card of 2020!
