Busy Busy Bee

It's really hard for me to admit this, but I kind of thrive off of busyness. Like for real. And I feel guilty for it sometimes too because I've been brought up that you've got to loathe busyness... it gets in the way of life! We are supposed to complain about being so busy, and so knowing that I'm actually ok with being busy, I'm that girl in the corner eating an excessive amount of chips and dip so that I can avoid the stares of shock that generally come after I explain that though I'm busy, 'I don't mind'.
See the truth is, I love what I do... no, wait, I LOOOOOVVVVEEEEEEEE what I do. There is so much sheer middle-school-girl-at-an-NSYNC-concert excitement every time I go to meet a client, sit down to edit some photos, arrive at a wedding, drive 300mi in a day, and scarf down a super-classy Taco Bell meal on my way to the next event. Love it. And my career allows me to be around people that love what I do, too (and appreciate my 'busyness' just as much). My clients are the best, they love photography and the time and energy I put into their personal hotty-toddy photos... and having clients like that make working hard for them very rewarding.
Today was a very very busy day. And though I may have had a few bouts of road-rage on the way to meetings in which I am chronically late for... they aren't a reflection of how I feel about my lack of free time... they just have more to do with Florida drivers in Atlanta (I got much love for ya tho, FL, for real).
So in case you are really busy, and you secretly love it, though you are inclined to sigh and roll your eyes when the subject come up... here is me liberating you (since I have the power to do that of course). If you love it, be proud :)


*disclaimer, if you are sooo busy that you can't stop to pee, disregard everything I just said and breathe

Good things are worth waiting for

There is just something about waiting for a good thing. The waiting part may not be very fun, but because you are so certain about the goodness of the very thing you are waiting for, you don't mind it (that much). And have you noticed that you can tell when others are waiting for a good thing too? The looks on their faces, the way that they hold their hands in anticipation, rubbing their fingers together, massaging out the nervous and excited tensions... yes you can tell. And when that good thing finally arrives, when it finally walks through the door and makes it's way into your life... all is well. Your hands miraculously have been healed of nervous tension and the look on your face emits an energy that people in the next room can feel. Yes, it is goooood.

I photographed a wedding this weekend in Griffin, GA and the bride and groom were the kind of people that you knew had been waiting on a good thing. This was the second marriage for both of them, so they knew what events to expect for the day, but knew that this time... the way that they would experience today would be one for the books. They knew. They waited. They loved.

The look on Tatum's face right before she see's her soulmate, the one she's waited for, says it all. She had been waiting on a good thing, and it was worth the wait.

A successful launch

For the last week and a half I have been workings tirelessly at having a successful launch of my new website. My previous website was great and all, but I'm a fan of bells and whistles, and well... it had none. I had been dreaming of something bigger and better for a while, and so when the guys over at Showit launched their new ShowitSite interface, I jumped in line, took a number, and got busy.

Showit is fairly new, and super user-friendly, like a giant simplified version of Dreamweaver for all of the Adobe faithfuls out there. I feel like it was designed just for me (cue sappy music), and don't know how I would ever be here without it.

So without further ado, here is the link to my new site, which isn't new, just updated beyond recognition. Ya kno.

Happy Saturday people. Go to a yard sale, watch some football, check out my new website. Is this a shameless plug? Yes. But above all, it's a successful launch.


My photo
Hello! I'm Sarah Esther and I am a portrait and wedding photographer in Atlanta, GA. I absolutely love being able to witness moments worthy of capturing. Photography allows me to capture truly beautiful moments, and for me is a form of worship. Capturing pictures of those things that God has created invites me to love him more.
