What if being “unproductive”, was actually “productive”?

Here’s a repost from a fellow photographer’s blog that I found intriguing.  Being an “overachiever” myself, one of my biggest pet peeves is feeling “unproductive”.  I have often times worked through lunch just to catch up from less productive moments in the day and to squeeze out every last second of the work week to accomplish everything I hope to accomplish.  Getting up from the computer to use the restroom or even eat, can “feel” difficult when your plate is, figuratively, full.

What if “focus”, at least all the time, was actually overrated?  Overachiever ADD types rejoice!  ;)

This article, once again enforces that self-care (i.e. taking a break, eating, even a massage or pedicure, maybe?!) is NOT selfish.  If we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we take care of ANYTHING else.  So for any other workaholic mommy business owners out there who have ever felt “guilty” for taking a little you time… this maybe just what we need to hear.  Again :)

John & ManDee get hitched!

John & ManDee got hitched!  The most FUN wedding EVER!!  Love you guys!  :)

This vintage style backyard wedding was amazing to photograph!  As an experienced professional portrait photographer who specializes primarily in newborns, children and family portraits, I don’t photograph weddings very often anymore.  However, ManDee Martin from Graber and Company here in Boise has been my hair dresser (i.e. friend & therapist LOL) for almost 17 years now.  I love her like a sister and when I had the opportunity to photograph her wedding, I just couldn’t be talked out of it.  Please enjoy this highlight video of her special day.
