• Hello Dear Friends

    My greatest desire is to seek after God's will in all I do. In doing so, He is continuing to shape both my heart and business. This year I have heard a constant whisper to slow down. Do less. Be intentional with how I spend my time. I'm scheduling fewer sessions in 2016 so I can be at home & fully present with my two sweetest treasures. Take a minute and read (below) what this year holds for Ginny Taylor Photography. I'm so blessed by all of you! Thank you for traveling this precious journey with me. xoxo

Being Present

Hello My Sweet Clients & Friends,

Thank you for stopping by and taking time to read these words.  I assure you that capturing your special moments has brought me so much joy over the last several years. You have invited me into your homes, included me at celebrations and let me help welcome your newest additions… I almost feel like I’m a part of some of your families and that truly fills my cup.

I have felt a stirring in my heart for quite a while now. A voice whispering to slow down.  A voice whispering to do less.  A voice whispering to be as present as possible.   God shows me every day what a gift my two little ones are. I swear I BLINKED, and Alden is almost 4 years old!!  I realized I only have one more year at home with her before she heads off to Kindergarten. This blows. my. mind.  Time is so fleeting, isn’t it?  With Copeland nearing one, I feel the urgency to be as intentional as possible with my time. I can never get these precious years back. You know- the ones with laundry overflowing, a permanent messy bun, being a professional nose wiper, chef, mediator, and trainer of the heart… witnessing first steps, nurturing forgiveness, watching siblings at play, making meals together, crafting, tickling, laughing, learning and stewarding well- I don’t want to miss this.

To be honest, I’ve had trouble balancing life between a business that I love and my role as a wife and mama. With Gabe and I owning THREE businesses, life can be very busy!! BLESSED but crazy. A lot of tag teaming between kids, chores and late night editing. While my photographer heart has been so full, my mama heart has been aching. Instead of a simple task of enjoying my kiddos on the floor, I was thinking about everything else I should be doing. Editing, replying back to you lovelies, scouting, returning phone calls {We all know that’s not my strength!! Lol}, keeping up on office work & receipts etc. At the end of the day, I realized I was losing my passion for the very thing I’ve always wanted to be, a wife & mama. I was too caught up in checking things off my list for the day instead of truly investing in these precious children God entrusted me with. I was feeling depleted and was missing out on what mattered most, my family.  I’ve had a lot of grace extended to me by my family & friends through these busy seasons.  My sweet husband has supported me through so much love, prayer, helping with chores, making dinners and working around my sessions.  I feel so honored to call him mine.  My best friend home schooled preschool and watched my babes one day a week and I’ll forever be grateful for her and the way she loves my littles.  My parents have weekly love dates with Alden & Cope and they adore their quality time with “Boomy & Bear.”  But now, It’s my time.  It’s my time to sew into these little hearts and be fully committed to the daily tasks of mama.  All you working mom’s out there, please don’t be discouraged.  I know there are so many of you who balance things beautifully between work & family!!  I’m simply following after what I believe God has for me, in this short season with my babies.

I feel excited for 2016. A fresh start. Isn’t so nice to have a new year?? I have been incredibly prayerful in what God wants for my business this year. What freedom I feel in chasing after His plan.

With that said, I’m not stepping away from photography all together. Although, I know I need to set boundaries for myself. At the moment, I will no longer be accepting any NEW clients. To utter those words makes me sad, because I LOVE people!! I’m so thankful for all of you and your WONDERFUL referrals… your confidence in me to capture others blesses me beyond words!! But I have to say no to some so I can say YES to you and my family!! I’m also not booking any weddings for 2016. I will miss capturing you lovely bride & grooms and swooning over all your beautiful wedding details.  I’m hopeful to return to y’all one day!!  In the meantime, check out Cami Bradley Photography, Urban Rose Photography & Park Road Photography.  These ladies are ever so talented and will beautifully document your special day!

I will only be photographing two sessions a month, so if you are wanting to be on my schedule please email me @ ginnytaylorphotography@comcast.net I’ll check my email on Fridays, so that is when you can expect a reply. I still plan on hosting a Spring and Fall Mini Session Event. I love those as much as y’all do and I know this is a way I can serve all of you!! If you are a “new client” who had to reschedule due to weather this past Fall or we have already been in conversation, of course I will still schedule you!!

I don’t know what God has in store for me in the future, but for now I feel thankful for this vision. My prayer is that I can still invest in you families that have been so dear to me. Y’all have NO IDEA how much I adore documenting your cherished moments. Photography is woven into my heart and will always be one of my most treasured gifts from God.

Thank you for traveling these unknown waters with me. I don’t have all the “kinks” worked out, so your graciousness and love mean the world. You are all gold to me.

Xoxo,

Ginny
