On finally finding balance and Easter Holiday plans and photo shoots,

Thanks to F H Hardy Florists in Morpeth for some beautiful Ranunculus I've been playing around with this week

I don't know about you dear reader but I've had one of those weeks where I've actually stopped myself from procrastinating and actually worked through the to-do list to the point where it's to-done!

I'm actually at a point for about the first time in 10 years where I can see the future and where I think I might actually have some balance in my life and it's only taken me, an associate, an assistant, a cleaner, an accountant and a gardener to get me to the point where I can see the middle of the washing pile and in business where I'm not obsessing about being only a few weeks behind.

It's an amazing thing when you realise just how many things you undertake not only as a business woman but as a mum, all of those roles you undertake without question and there's a stark realisation that if you categorised them all you should be on a much better hourly rate!

I think one of the most important things I've learnt in business is that you can't do everything yourself and some of the most successful business people I know have the skill of delegation.  

I'm finally at a place where I can plan and strategise about my personal future and the future of my business, I'm really not sure what conclusions I'm going to reach but it's lovely to have a bit of space and time to ponder these things.

I do believe that last night I should have had the best nights sleep, I still didn't but that was mainly down to the realisation that I'd forgotten to take all of my daily meds at 2am!

So here we are on the dawn of a new horizon and the verge of the Easter holidays, now you may be wanting to have a photo shoot over the Easter holidays and we have the following remaining availability - 

Good Friday - Saltwell Park - 10, 10.30, 11, 11.30, 12.30, 1, 1.30 and 2pm
Easter Saturday - Jesmond Dene 11, 1pm, 1.30, 2pm
Easter Monday  - Tynemouth Longsands - 10, 10.30, 1, 1.30 and 2pm

Half hours are £25 and if you have a larger family 60 minute sessions are only £40 and they all come with a complimentary print, web gallery and 15% off for the first 7 days your gallery is live.

The Saturday sessions are with me, the Friday and Monday are with Stacey.

I'll also be available from the Tuesday to the Friday and then Saturday 11th April, Stacey will be available on Sunday 12th and then I'm away from 13-17th April, we've a wedding on the 18th and on the 19th Stacey will be available in Saltwell Park with availability from 11.30 onwards.

It's a brilliant time for photo shoots as by Saturday it will be spring and I for one am delighted about that!

This weekend I'll be on the beach at Tynemouth and I can fit in people at noon or if you fancy Jesmond Dene then Stacey has 1 session remaining at 10.30am in Jesmond Dene.

If you would like to book any of the sessions or you want to get in touch about anything else just drop me a quick email and I'll look forward to chatting with you.
