The Averbeck Family

Hi All!  
It's been a while since I've been behind my lens "professionally."  I can't even remember the last job I did. :/  Maybe the Thanksgiving wedding??  YIKES!!  That can't be right...
Being pregnant made it difficult to do the work of a proper photographer...I'm pretty active when I do a shoot; lying on my stomach, climbing a ladder, squatting...all positions that a growing belly isn't a fan of.  So once I started sticking out there, I put the photo jobs on hiatus.  There's a downside (or two, or three, okay maybe four) to doing that:

1) The jobs stop coming
2) The ideas stop flowing
3) The confidence starts lacking
4) The creativity back up in your mind is in-sane

Yesterday, my husband and I went out to ice cream at the Comfy Cow (aka - Louisville's BEST ice cream shop) with some friends and it turns out, after they were done hanging out with us, they were going to do some family photos.  My photog ears starting buzzing and my heart started fluttering.

"What's that you say??  You need photos done?!?!"

No, they didn't ask me - but I just couldn't help from injecting myself into the rest of their afternoon.  I mean really though, you can't get a proper family photo with a 1 year old using a can hardly do it with help!  So off to a secluded road and park with a creek we went.  We didn't do anything fancy, but it was so nice to use my talent once again.  

Here are a few personal favorites of the day

I hope you enjoyed these little tibits of my first day back on the job!!  It was a lot of fun and thanks Averbeck family for letting me tag along and do these for you!
