Hello friends! I apologize that you have not heard from me in a while. Life has become quite crazy in the past several months! I am writing to share with you something that I have put off for a while, simply because it makes me sad. After much prayer and consideration, I have decided to step away from Allyson Leah Photography for the foreseeable future. I will continue to work with my current clients, but I will not be taking on any new clients or photo shoots.
This decision was not an easy one for me to make. I love being a photographer and working with young women. I love to see the shine in their eyes as I use my passion and gift to make them feel beautiful. I love to see their confidence grow. However, being a full time photographer, full time wife, full time mom, and working alongside my husband in our community, the business has taken a toll on me. I am amazed by the photographers I see who can hold all of their roles and be so successful. I wish I had their abilities! And I thought that I would. But after becoming a mom and finding out that I will soon have two little ones to take care of, I became overwhelmed. As much as I love my job, my heart feels pulled to spend my time caring for and watching my children grow every day. In order to do this, I cannot continue in the many demanding roles my business has of me.
I hope that in the future, as my children have grown, I will be able to step back into this business I have loved so dearly. But for now, I will use my passion to photograph friends, family, and especially my growing babies. My job will return to being my hobby and I will always cherish the growth I have experienced during my time as a businesswoman.
It has always been my desire to change people's lives and I hope that I was able to do that for at least one of you. I have loved working with every one of my clients and followers. I THANK YOU ALL for supporting me and encouraging me as I have worked to serve you.
Until next time... Ally @ Allyson Leah Photography
