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 :)

Shared Story: 9 tips to take better portraits of your kids!

Here's a well written article from a photographer and entrepreneur that I admire.  It has 9 tips to take better portraits of your kids- candid photos, the day to day stuff... nothing you have to bring them in the studio to do- the only way to capture them is to be there and ready- 24/7 :)  Yup, that's the "secret".  I loved that she closed the article by saying PRINT the images!!  We can't enjoy memories if they are stuck in a hard drive or on our phones somewhere.  Make sure you have memories that you can touch, hold & feel.  One day they will be as precious as those babes you get to snuggle on right now.  Here's a link to the full article http://kellymoorebag.com/blog/2016/02/nine-tips-for-better-photos-of-your-kids/
