Willing to Change

Mar

31

Take the time to mourn what isn’t. Life was SO GOOD for me just two months ago. Two months ago, I was on top of the fucking world. In a matter of weeks I went from my biggest earning month to my lowest earning month in years.

I miss doughnut dates with the fam & shooting weddings, first dances and “you may kiss the bride”. I miss brunch.

I’m missing my local Starbucks employees who were secretly some of my best friends.

I miss feeling like a boss making bank and talking about being my husbands sugar momma. I’m loving sharing an office building with Clynn…something we’ve dreamt of and didn’t think would happen like this, but here we are!

I love the legal structure my company is forcing me into by necessity. It will serve us well in the future, too.

I am sad, but I love the depth this experience is giving me. We will come out more resilient. My company will come out stronger and more prepared for blind-sided situations. The world is changing. I am willing to change too.

For now, I am refocusing on The Print Lab. I’m writing more, researching more, and shooting myself allot. It will be exciting to put my black drop work in order to see how they have changed and improved over the weeks. When people gather in groups of 10 or so again, I will be able to take clients in the studio and I’ll have lighting down like the pro I intend to be.

Big weddings may be a thing of the past. Elopements may become the new norm.

I’m ready to double down on my passion for print and studio portraiture. Let’s see what happens. I’m Willing to Change if need be. Maybe this pandemic was just what the studio needed to open more doors. I have permission to explore and I hated that at first….until I realized the potential this time supports.

Pivot. Be Resilient. Be Creative.

Sincerely, Jaclynn

Willing to Change

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
