As a photographer who is a new mommy, this photo walk was exactly what I needed!
I am a part of group of women photographers in the area and this photo walk was the first one we’ve had! There are so many in the group who haven’t met yet so this was a way to get to know each other and do something together that we all enjoy.
I haven’t taken time to shoot in three weeks, which for someone who does photography full time…three weeks seems like three months! Taking care of a newborn [my sweet Liam] is a lot of work and I’m still getting the hang of how to balance my time. Jon helped me figure out a way that I can go on the photo walk and still have Liam near. He came with me to the Oxford Exchange and watched Liam upstairs and fed him while he let me enjoy shooting with 2 sweet photog friends, one that I’ve known for a couple years and another who I was able to meet for the first time!
Afterwards, we all got lunch at the Oxford Exchange! It was DELICIOUS! Liam was sound asleep the whole time! During lunch, Michelle, Elaine, Jon and I were able to talk about life, our kiddos and how to juggle being a mommy and a business owner. It was encouraging to hear them talk about how they balance the two!
I enjoyed spending some time taking pictures of things that caught my eye and of my friends shooting! I can’t wait till the next photo walk where we will get to meet fellow photogs and learn more from each other. I hope you all enjoy some of my favorites from the day!
This is Elaine! 🙂

This is one of my favorites!! I want to blow it up and put it on my kitchen wall!
