Photo Challenge Submission
I have set a goal for myself for the "busy season" of my Allyson Causey Photography business.   In the past, when December rolls around I get burnt out and feel very overwhelmed.  Not because I am busy... but because I seem to not pick up my camera for the folks I love photographing the most, my family.  So I am staying the course and picking little times to sneak in everyday moments and some magical moments I create myself.

The forecast was calling for 5 long days of rainy weather (which I did welcome, as we needed the rain).  Before the weather came in I decided to get in a quick session of my little princess.  Cloudy, overcast light is one of my favorite...

there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for the precious gift of motherhood that God has given me ... I am truly blessed!

Photography Idol submission for the Chic Critique Forum

The Chic Critique is having a Photography Idol contest.  Your entry needs to convey your style and brand of your business.  Well this sums mine up!!! Most of my beautiful clients come to me cause they feel my style of photography and I LOVE that they get it!  This is my beautiful niece that I call the official Allyson Causey Photography spokes model as when I get an idea she is always willing to do it.  Well, her "senior year" has finally come and we traveled to a bay island get some images that I had swimming (ha ha ) in my head.  This was by far the our favorite!

Most every Sunday my family (extended) get together to catch up from our hectic weeks.  We share a meal and the kids hang out and play.  We sit around the kitchen table and find out the latest information on who and what and how we are going to start our diet on Monday.  It is just a time to sit back and enjoy each other.
